Creating blog posts & promo materials with Piktochart

I’m a visual person (hello, Pinterest!), so infographs and charts always grab my attention. They can be a great way to display content to your readers about your book, your self, or a theme from your book. This can be especially effective for non-fiction books, but there’s plenty of room to get creative with fiction too.

I came across this great tool to help you create infographs quite easily – it’s called Piktochart and it’s free if you allow their watermark on your chart, otherwise there is a paid option for more templates and customization. See below for some of the Piktocharts I’ve been playing around with!

 

Pretty cool huh? No graphic design skills necessary…

    Awesome resource, thank you for sharing! Infographic is on my promo list for my next book, but I’ve been procrastinating, because it’s so intimidating. So happy to find this — your graphics look great!
