As an author you would have already considered your target audience along with your own preferences and styles. You would have also considered your budget, the type of the publication and possibly a choice of publication houses.
My role is to assist you in crafting your manuscript into a published work of art which will be a pleasure to read and enhance your story. To provide you with the best possible outcome, I will be able to assist you by discussing your requirements, guiding you through your choices and providing recommendations if required.
Regardless of whether your publication will be consumed in printed or digital format, the interior design can make or break a reader’s enjoyment, and comprehension.
Things I will assist you with in your publishing journey:
Design – cover design, graphics, structure, chapters and parts, ISBN steps, contents, frontmatter and back matter. Good design makes a reader pick up your book and gains their interest.
Typesetting – what is typesetting? font choices, type size, spacing, kerning, tracking, leading, punctuation, widows and orphans, hyphens, scaling, justification, etc. Good typography makes reading easy and pleasurable.
Layout – margins, columns, white space, running heads, footers, new chapter design, illustrations, images, captions, call outs, etc. Good layout creates the right impression and delivers a great reader experience.
There is no one-size-fits-all.
