When I design a book, I do so for the retail, school and library markets. My designs are informed by my experience working closely with book sales representatives and retail buyers. Everything I bring to the table as experience and talent is for one chief purpose: finding the best possible design for your book within its particular genre. If I can visualize your book on a shelf in a book store, that is where it rightly belongs.
I read every book I design. I do this so imagery and themes within the pages jump out and lend themselves to cover concepts and interior layout ideas. If a book title hasn't been decided, I will make recommendations based on my reading.
I typically provide 3 unique cover samples to start off. From there, a final cover begins to take form. Once a cover design is approved, I move on to the interior and produce 3 unique layouts from which to choose. Once a layout is approved, I proceed with building the book.
When the book is in its final form as an ebook and / or a print-ready PDF, I can help you obtain print estimates if you intend to print books and recommend reliable print vendors. My mother was a writer; my father was a fireman who worked at night for a print company. My dad ended up working over 40 years in print and my first experience in book publishing was in manufacturing.
