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.
