Welcome to Alex A. Akira Digital Art for Social Media.

This shop is primarily devoted to premade designs to help authors promote their books.

Postgrounds or PGs are readily sized background art for highlighting your book's cover on social media platforms.

Marketing your book on social media platforms does work, but who has time to resize and set up new ways to showcase their book... when you are busy writing the sequel?

Affordable and presized to fit today's most popular social media platforms, PG’s use the maximum amount of space allotted for your post. Bright and colorful, PG’s attract more attention to your post and can help increase sales of your latest book and reinvigorate sales of your older works.
PG’s feature colorful art and/or graphics and a placeholder for spotlighting your book. Simply add your book's cover and post. Use the post repeatedly across all of the Groups and Pages of each social platform you belong to.

The premade PG's in this shop feature generic characters, assorted subject icons and seasonal/holiday themed art. You can purchase a single PG or a multi-pack. You will recieve a digital file containing the PG(s) minus the watermark.
Simply plug in your bookcover and post on the appropriate social platform.

Click the "Request a cutom order" option beneathe the listined image, if you would like us to add your cover to your PG.
