Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $28

Books are my passion--every kind of book. I've run my own small press since 2007 and have been freelancing as a book designer and ebook conversion specialist since 2012. I'm an expert at print layout, book design, ebook design, html and css (the code inside ebooks). I'm also an artist, a writer and a trained actor--I do audiobook and book video narration, if needed. I'm a native English speaker.

Service Description

I work in Adobe Creative Suite CS5.5, and InDesign CS6. I'm familiar with all the style requirements for Lightning Source and Createspace print books, Amazon Kindle, Apple/iTunes ebooks, Nook Press, Kobo and Smashwords. I work on a Windows platform. I'm fluent in MS Office. I write code by hand.

When I create ebooks, I generate the basic epub package from a specially formatted InDesign file. I then hand-edit the internal code using Sigil, and also by "unzipping" the epub and editing the files in a text editor, because there are things Sigil can't do. I'm fluent in html and css and can optimize the code for different ebook vendors and to solve display quirks in your book which the automated converters can't handle. I can scale, edit, and enhance your photos and illustrations so they match the vendors' specifications as well as displaying to best effect in your book. I can create 3D to 2D art renders in DAZ Studio for customized cover art that looks like a still from a movie--no more mashing up generic stock photos!

I can lay out your print book to any printer's specifications, in any trim size you need, and I can design dust jackets for hardcover books, including full wrap-around covers. I'm a font junkie, and if I don't have a font you want, I'll find it.

As a graphic designer, I've produced theatre programs, newsletters, bound program books, flyers, brochures, posters, t-shirt designs and original art. I have fifteen years experience as a web designer. I can help you...
