Glen Edelstein

Glen Edelstein – Designer

I am a book designer with lifelong experience in book publishing. My approach to conceptual book design ensures your book becomes a reality.

Overview

For over three decades, I have been bringing authors' visions to life! I have crafted works for some of the most renowned publishing houses, as well as helped independent authors stand out. If you are ready to get your masterpiece noticed, I can help you get the ball rolling. I am committed to getting your message out to the world, and provide professional services that match. Whether you have a completed manuscript or an idea in mind.


My knowledge of the publishing industry includes service for Penguin Random House Inc. and St. Martin’s Press, a division of Macmillan Inc. I have experience in creating both print and eBooks and aim to deliver high-quality designs for your specific book concept. My projects are completed efficiently and I thereby reduce the time and costs associated with on-the-job training and coaching often required by less-experienced designers.

Professionalism all the way. It was a pleasure working with Glen on my first novel, The Baker's Ghost. He guided me along the way with cover design, interior options and the timeframe needed to get the job done. I am pastry chef by day and writer by night, who is always creating something from scratch. I am totally amazed and ecstatic to hold my beautiful book in my hands that was created by me...

Glen Eddy is a GODSEND! Hire him immediately. As a debut author who had no idea what he was doing, I was spinning my wheels trying to understand the publishing industry. Glen is a salty dog graphic designer with DECADES of experience bringing thousands of titles to life. He took me by the hand and led me to the promised land of publishing. Check out my book The Bravest - A Fireman's Tale and se...

I've been through my fair share of editors, all with disappointing results. Glen is the opposite. He is patient and careful and ensures the projects live up to my expectations. Even when last minute edits are called for, he jumps on that without complaint. I cannot recommend him more to anyone out there. He's a good guy.

Robert, Thank you for shining review. I really enjoyed woking with you and designing your book interior. I look forward to working with again, and your next book.

Glen was great! We had to many iterations of my cover before we were both satisfied. Glen was patient and professional throughout the cover design process. The book design/brought the entire book together, cover, text and boxed messages. Glen brought to life my vision for the book and there were very few corrections of the book design. He uploaded all of it to Ingramspark and now I'm a pub...
