I have been editing, designing, and publishing books since 1991. I've published 69 books, 21 for my own publishing company (Press of the Camp Pope Bookshop), and 48 for other publishing companies, self-publishers and organizations. In addition Iíve done text and/or cover layouts on nearly 100 other books. I've also done numerous smaller jobs involving text editing, cover design, and page layout. I've done both black and white and full color interiors. I've done novels, memoirs, technical, business, and children's books. Of the 69 books, 11 were hardcover, either cloth with dust jacket or printed case, the rest were paperbacks. 26 were published via offset and 43 POD (Lightning Source, Createspace, Lulu, DiggyPod, etc.). 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 also offer basic design and formatting for self-publishers who intend to submit their books themselves to online book printers such as Createspace, Lightning SourceI/Ingram Spark, Lulu, or Blurb. I can upload your book to your printer for you or I can advise you if you would like to do the layout, setup, and uploading yourself. I can advise you on choosing a book aggregator if you are publishing in both print and digital formats.
Recently I have begun offering ebook formatting in ePub (iBook, Nook, etc.)...
