Manuscript Formatting

Ever pick up a book – flip the pages, and say, wow? Sometimes the typography is enough to capture your attention.

This is where your plain text manuscript is transformed into the aesthetically pleasing book interior.

We’ll work together to choose the page style and look, you want for your interior.

You’ll receive a print-ready interior for your book in any trim size and format you want – including paperback, hardback, and eBook.

All your front and back matter, chapter titles, page numbers, headers, footers – will be styled as you want, including graphics and all the little lovelies that make books wonderful.

You’ll also get a basic proofreading of your edited manuscript – another pair of eyes to catch any misspellings, punctuation, or grammatical errors.

Swag & Cover Design

You probably already have an idea of what you want on your book cover – you may even have artwork or photos, or maybe you don’t. No worries.

We’ll work together to create a beautiful book cover that represents you and your story – a cover that brings your vision to life. 

Your cover will be formatted to any or all of the following: paperback, hardcover, and eBook, for any trim size.

You’ll also receive graphics for social media, websites, reviewers, advertising – including book covers in various formats and sizes, and promotional book mockups – as seen below.

Bookmark design is included, as well as flyers, mugs, t-shirts, any promotional author swag or print media materials you need.

Limit of five different products or items, excluding bookmarks.

Author & Book Launch

You’ve written your book, it’s ready for publishing, but do you have what you need for a book launch?

Let’s get your publicity materials ready!

I’ll write, format, and create a press release, book summaries, blurbs, jacket copy, author bios, profiles, reviews, media pitches, and all marketing copy for you and your book – including everything you don’t know you need.

Book reviews are a huge part in your early success – I’ll help you submit your book for review to many of the top reviewers.

We’ll also work together to create your targeted reader audience and how to reach them.

I’ll be the compass to guide you through every step of your book publishing and launch process to ensure you have everything you need for success.
