Book Design

This is the most important process in your publishing project. What you have written will never be read if your book is not attractive.You only have a few seconds to grab a shopper's attention. If the cover is appealing, then the shopper may open it and glance through the pages. If the interior is amateurish and poorly designed, it will be difficult to read and you will lose the interest of the shopper, no matter how interesting your subject.

We offer complete design consultation, from cover to interior, paper to font. Send us a copy of your manuscript for a free estimate of a design for your book.


These are estimates. Your manuscript will be evaluated and an accurate estimate given. For more information on editing services, click here.


Typesetting and Layout

Typing Services

Most publishers require a computer file of your manuscript. If you don't have one we can create one for you. Send a copy of your manuscript (or at least 10 sample pages) for an estimate.

People often ask:

Q: Do you have payment plans?

For services of $250 or less, payment is expected when the project is accepted. If your fees are over $250 you may send in half your payment with your manuscript. We will bill you for the remainder when the first draft is submitted to you for approval. For packages where we provide several services, such as cover, editing and layout, we can sometimes break the payments into four parts. We try to make our services affordable to all authors and will work with you on a payment plan. We take checks and money orders by mail or you may pay with check or credit card through PayPal.

Critiquing fee is $3.00 per page (double spaced, 10 point type or larger). We read your manuscript and comment on it's readability and marketablility, and give you suggestions for improvement. We make no changes.

Q: Can I submit a manuscript on disk to be critiqued?

Yes. We prefer that you send a word processing file on disk plus a printed copy. We accept MS Word and Word Perfect files. If you prefer to send the disk only, please add $30.00 to the final price. This will cover the cost of printing your manuscript and mailing the hard copy back to you with comments and suggestions.

Q: What if I don't want my manuscript printed out? Do I still have to pay the $30.00?

If you are using our critiquing service, the manuscript must be printed. A manuscript needs to be in hardcopy to be properly edited.
