Why us?

We’re not a robot that grinds out stock-looking templates, or a bunch of cut-throat freelance amateurs. We’re a real design studio staffed by artists who love books and know the art of making yours look as good as the biggest publishers. (We do books for them too.) We’ve been designing print books for 30 years, and creating custom eBooks since they were invented.

You got a question, we’re quick to answer emails. Or call us on the phone. Our studio has big bright windows, cheerful people, sunny flowers and great coffee. We’re a happy bunch to work with.

Print book design

Get a print interior design that looks as good as the big houses, without waiting around for a foo-foo agent to discover you.

eBook design

Get your book onto every major eBook device, including Kindle, iBooks, Kobo and Nook. We make it easy.

Book cover design

Oh yes, people do judge a book by its cover. With a beautiful custom book cover, you’ll sell many more books.

Our sounds-crazy guarantee

We don’t invoice you until after we deliver your finished book design. Nutty? Maybe not. In twenty years, we’ve only had one customer skip out. (She came back a year later asking us to do another book.) The point is, we know that gaining trust on the internet is a two-way street. This is how we prove to you we’re for real. We give you a free, no-obligation, locked-in price quote, and when we’re done, that’s how much you pay. We’re the only ones to offer such a guarantee. If you hit any technical snags, we fix them fast and free, always.

How much? Glad you asked.

Email us a copy of your manuscript, or use this handy form. It doesn’t have to be a final draft, just a fair representation of your book. Any format is fine. We look over each book individually to provide an accurate, fair quote. We’ll return a guaranteed price the same day, along with any tips or suggestions we might have once we’ve seen it. If you’re not thrilled with what we offer, there’s no obligation. You can just say, “no thanks.”

Graphic Artist Person asked you to provide a 300-dpi JPEG of your headshot. "Fine, right away" you say. You open your image editor and resize your lovey face using its export options, like this… …and you email her the resulting JPEG image. The next morning she writes...

Mean what you say

I'd love to think the Flat Earth Society has a great sense of humor. More likely, they have more interest in being provocative than in being correct. And they don't read their own posts much, or the one above might not have hung around as long as it did. Now, if you...

And a cast of…
