Service Description

I have been editing, designing, and publishing books since 1991. I've published 59 books, 20 for my own publishing company (Press of the Camp Pope Bookshop), and 39 for other publishing companies, self-publishers and organizations. In addition Iíve done text and/or cover layouts on 67 other books. I've also done numerous smaller jobs involving text editing, cover design, and page layout. I specialize in historical non-fiction, but can publish any subject matter you have. I've done both black and white and full color interiors. I've done novels, memoirs, technical, business, and childrenísí books. Of the 59, 24 were published via offset and 35 POD (Lightning Source, Createspace, Lulu). So I have experience with both traditional offset and digital printing, and I can help you decide which is best for your project. I do all cover designs myself, based either on customers' concepts or ideas of my own. I also do all interior layouts myself.

I provide complete contract publishing services, including text editing, photo/illustration scanning and optimization, design, typesetting, printing and binding. I can produce your book in hardcover or paperback, black and white or color interior, in any quantity at competitive rates, giving special attention to quality. I provide complete text editing services based on the standards of the Chicago Manual of Style. Typesetting and design are done using Adobe InDesign CC and Photoshop CC (can also work in CS2, CS3, CS 5, CS 5.5, and CS 6)....
