Typesetting Service

As a self-published author, I know that the biggest challenges come after your book has been written.

Before you even tackle the marketing side of things, getting your book into a format which can be printed or read on an e-reader is one of the most difficult obstacles.

How big should your book be?

What margins do you need?

Where do you put the table of contents?

How do you make a e-book?

What size cover will you need?

The questions just keep coming. It can all be rather overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be.

In order to help authors overcome this huge hurdle, I am offering a typesetting service which will propel your book onto shelves. And the best thing about it is that it will look as good as, if not better, than all the bestselling books out there.

I use Adobe’s InDesign, which is the industry standard for publications. It is a complex piece of software, and can do anything you want it to, within reason. It won’t make you a cheese sandwich, but it will allow you to put a map or illustration in your book, for example. If you want a flourish or a symbol at the beginning of a chapter or between sections, that’s no problem. And with widows and orphans, InDesign has a way to deal with them without squashing the rest of the text together and making it look an untidy mess.

You will end up with a professional looking book and it won’t cost you the earth.

My prices start at £150 for a novel of up to 500 pages.

Contact me if you are interested, and let me answer all the questions to which you don’t yet have the answers, and give you a book you can be proud of.
