Layout for Print & eBook

Professional book design is critical for successful sales and pitches.

I work with authors and small publishers to transform manuscripts into professionally formatted books that are ready for custom printing houses, as well as print-on-demand services with Lightning Source, IngramSpark, CreateSpace, Lulu, etc.

I do not use templates. All layouts are professionally designed to correspond with the cover, theme, and message of your book.

All pricing includes a sample layout of the first chapter for approval and any necessary changes then one round of revision when completed if needed. Upon completion and 100% customer satisfaction, you’ll be sent a print-ready PDF created in the latest version of Adobe InDesign—one of the best programs on the market for desktop and digital publishing.

• custom-designed chapter headings & fonts

All of which is tailored for your book. *This can also include optional drop-caps and fleurons.

Smashwords (25% discount when purchased with ePub & Kindle (.mobi) file)

Smashwords is a great way to get your book into multiple eBook stores, including major retailers and thousands of public libraries. However, the processing software is sensitive and even minor issues will result in file garble. I create a clean file that will have no problems flying through the "Meatgrinder" process, resulting in a professional-quality end product.

ePub & Kindle (.mobi)
I do not take a file for print and "save as," like many of the discount services available online, resulting in piles of spacing errors and file garble that confuses and frustrates readers. ​My epub and Kindle files are professionally designed for optimal viewing on a variety of eBook readers.

Add-ons
• Drop caps and/or fleurons for ePub and Kindle files
• Conversion and clean-up from PDF files
• More than 15 illustrations/tables/graphs are charged per illustration.
