Wattpad is one of the largest fan-fiction websites on the internet with over 40 million users and 80 million stories. Indie authors know the value of cover art, its normally the first thing readers see and first impressions really matter. This has prompted the Canadian company to release a brand new app called Covers by Wattpad.
Covers by Wattpad allows authors to upload images from your phone or tablet or choose from a selection of beautiful sample photos. Add text, effects, and photo filters to make the perfect book jacket for all of your Wattpad stories. There is also options to add in image filters such as blur and sepia. You can then modify the text to highlight the title of your story and the byline. Once the cover is complete, authors can then upload it directly to any of the eBooks hosted on Wattpad.
This app has been requested for a number of years and authors who publish their fan-fiction on Wattpad can now design their own book covers more intuitively than ever. You can download Wattpad Covers for Android and iOS for free.
