Self-Publish Your Own Book with a Great Design
Too many great books are let down by poor covers, bad typesetting and automated ebook conversions. And so many authors are frustrated by the lack of clear publishing, print and distribution options made available to them.
The publishing industry has changed dramatically in recent years. With the advent of digital printing, print-on-demand, and ebooks, there are now more choices than ever for book publishing.
I have over 36 years experience in graphic design, including book design, proofing and editing. I stay current with the latest trends and technologies so I can offer you the best possible product based on your publishing needs.
I will work directly with you to achieve the results you’re looking for. I don’t subcontract work to less experienced designers. This way I can maintain the highest standards of quality while involving you in the process as much or as little as you want. My priority is that you get exactly what you want for your finished book.
I design appealing and effective covers for everything from children’s books to college texts. From simple to picturesque, we can design a cover to suit your book’s needs. If your cover is not attractive and eye-catching, or if it does not clearly reflect the contents within, few people will buy it.
I understand that cover design acts as the gateway, catching the reader’s eye and giving a glimpse at what’s inside. I create attractive, individually crafted covers that will complement your book.
Coming up with a layout and design that is both attractive and eye-catching, while ensuring that the book’s message isn’t lost on the reader is something at which I excel. And if your book’s interior is unorganized, poorly designed, and hard on the eyes, your reader will once again determine that reading it is more trouble than it’s worth.
Interior layouts are just as important as exterior designs. I pay meticulous attention to important elements like typography and page layouts, ensuring that your book is reader-friendly both inside and out.
Good design doesn’t just apply to print books. Our eBook conversion services will transform your book’s final pages into ePUB and ePDF formats – the two most prevalent electronic book formats used by a wide variety of eReaders such as Amazon’s Kindle and Barnes and Noble’s Nook.
I am ready to present your book in the best possible way. Let us help you make your book the best it can be.
The Creative Juices Difference
Creative Juices provides a clear, affordable book design service. This really makes us stand out from the crowd.
Tailored to Your Needs
I don’t take a one-solution-fits-all approach, I appreciate that every book is different. All customers and book projects are unique, and as such I custom design all book covers and interiors to fit the genre and style of your book.
Print on Demand
Amazon offers a “print on demand” service. I can help you set up your finished book on Amazon’s site and you pay nothing for printing. When someone orders your book, they pay for it, Amazon prints and ships it and you get a royalty in the amount you set up based on the price you choose to charge for the book. Easy to set up and track your royalties. Ask me about this service!
