Printed book design & typesetting

I've been designing books and book covers for many years now, from novels to children's books, technical manuals to research treatises, self-help and personal development books to academic and educational textbooks. Whilst initially this work was for publishing houses, I now offer a complete design, typesetting production and publishing service direct to established and first-time authors whose aim is to self-publish their work.

For print-on-demand paperback editions most of my authors choose Amazon's market-leading Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP)® service (formerly Create Space). For print-on-demand hardback editions I recommend Ingram Spark®.

E-book design and formatting

Whilst Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing ® offers previously unheard off opportunities to aspiring authors, and likewise claims to simplify the entire e-book self-publishing process, creating an e-book to a standard which can compete with a professionally designed and published product often requires creative and IT skills which exceed those of the average computer user. A clear understanding of the technical requirements and processes involved and of the KDP platform itself is also a big advantage.

Whether you want help formatting your manuscript for e-book publication, professional e-book cover image design or support with the KDP platform itself please don't hesitate to get in touch.

David Siddall Multimedia is a deliberately small freelance business which I've allowed to develop organically over 20 years. My aim is to understand my clients' aspirations, to deliver on time and to a high standard and to always calculate prices on an individual basis. If geographical location is important to you, I'm based in Monmouth at the head of the Wye Valley in south-east Wales. If you've got a project you'd like to discuss please get in touch, I'd be very pleased to help.
