The cover of your book can determine whether someone takes a look inside.
A lot of careful thought goes into the cover design of a book to make sure it catches the attention of a reader, whether it's on a shelf or on a tablet. If you have an idea for what you want the cover to look like, let us know and our talented and knowledgeable design team will work with you to make sure it looks the best it can.
Submitting your work for production and publication
In an ideal world, the best way to submit your book for production and publication is in the form of a Micrsosoft Word document (disk, email or other electronic transfer) together with a printed hard copy (standard 8.5" x 11" paper, please). That way we can read it, suggest edits and return it to you for any changes you want to make. It makes the design process more streamlined and therefore less expensive. Any illustrations or photographs should be attached as jpegs, no lower resolution than 300 dpi at actual size they are to appear.
We know that the world is not always ideal. If your book manuscript is in a different format, or you have questions about formatting, we'll do whatever we can to help. We will guide you through the process from beginning to end to make the process of publishing your book a fun and informative experience.
If you are a graphic artist, or know a designer who works with programs such as Creative Suite then your work may be submitted in InDesign or in some cases as a pdf. Please email for details and specifications.
