With these templates you can make your very own customized AI Sheet. For the basics, I’ve made it a simple click and fill in the form type of templates. But you should be able to adjust these templates by adding or deleting information to make them more personal for your book.

Now go forth and have some creative fun. And do let me see some beautiful flyers!
