You can use the softwares like Corel Draw, Adobe Indesign, Page Maker Illustrator or Photoshop to design a book cover.
I just recently wrote a hub about this (I'll post the link below), but my best advice to you is to research book covers at a bookstore. Just look at a variety and get an idea for the size of text, color palette, and placement. This is especially important for whatever genre your book is, because you want fans of that genre to be able to find it at a glance. Also, make sure that you get the proper dimensions of the cover from your ebook publisher. The last thing you want is for it to get stretched or distorted. And, the best advice I can offer overall is to keep it simple. Too many flashy effects can just make it look busy and muddled. The title and your name should be easily legible. Hope that helps!
