Book Design & Typesetting
Good book layout is more than just typing your manuscript in Word and saving it in PDF format for your printer. Choosing the right fonts, line spacing, kerning, margins, bleeds, page numbering, and getting headers and footers to work properly can be problem areas for the self-published author.
Do you have lots of images in your book, bullet lists, info boxes, fancy page decorations or other formatting requirements? Let us take care of your book layout for professional, striking results.
Customized Cover Design
They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but we all know the cover is often the first thing a reader sees before deciding to pick it up. Whether you supply images for your cover, or we find them for you, we will create an elegant or dynamic, eye-catching cover design.
We have hundreds of templates or we can create your custom cover design from scratch, ensuring you have a truly unique cover for your book.

Custom Author Websites (Yes, we design websites too.)
Self-published authors need a platform – an online home – where they can promote and sell their books. While seeing your book on the shelves of your favorite bookstore is a thrill all authors should enjoy, the reality is more readers are looking online to discover and buy new titles.
A website blog or online store is an ideal way to build a fan base, by allowing readers to glimpse the lives of their favorite authors – or their favorite book’s characters. Blogs are a versatile and easy to maintain platform, even for those who don’t have web design skills.
