What do you need to complete your project?

Book cover design

Custom designed book cover ready for print and e-book at just $400

Why do I need this?

The cover of the book is the single, most important element in choosing a book. Readers will judge your book by its cover, especially if it’s the first time they see it. Professionally designed covers lead to a much higher sales.


Interior formatting

We make your book easy to read and ready for printing and e-book.

Why do I need this?

That’s nothing worse that getting reviews that mention the problems with your layout instead of the content of your writing. One thing every reader takes for granted is a properly formatted book. Don’t skip the basics; instead let us create a great design for your interior.


E-book files

We convert your manuscript into a beautiful e-book for Kindle Direct Publishing, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble and more.

Why do I need this?

A digital version of your book allows you to increase your audience, use marketing tactics and share previews and chapters in an easy and inexpensive way. But you need the book to be responsive and the text perfectly visible in any format. Readers want your words, not random%20characters/>.
