Canva for Authors: How to make an ‘if you like this, you’ll love my book’ style graphic

What are ‘comp books’? Basically, it’s a way of saying ‘if you liked this, you’ll like this too’. If you like Agatha Christie, you’ll like Richard Osman’s cosy mysteries. If you like Stephen King, you’ll like this other horror book. If you like Sophie Kinsella, you’ll like Jeevani Charika’s book (grin).

This is a nice shorthand way of indicating to a reader in a hurry (and who isn’t in a hurry these days!) that your book is their sort of book.

In this step-by-step tutorial, you’ll find:

  • A walkthrough of how to make a comp book graphic
  • Some suggestions as to how to choose which books to include
  • A suggestion of where you can make this much easier by letting someone else do the work for you (for cheap)
