How to create a full page image in Google Docs

I use Canva for a lot of my design work i.e creating eBooks, graphics etc. but when it comes to creating a mini eBook, sometimes it can be a bit tedious and time consuming and a Google Doc is all you need. But, you still want to make it look pretty and like an eBook. I.e. you want a full-page image so it doesn’t look like you’ve just created a word document.

You want it to have a professional-looking cover but you don’t want to have to fiddle around creating it in Google Docs.
