Poor book design and layout can make even a great book look sloppy, so it's important to get it right. But lots of authors don’t know where to start when it comes to formatting their book — it’s a complex process that requires very specific skills, after all. That’s why you need to invest in a professional book designer.


An experienced book designer knows how to present your work in the best possible way. They will look at your book cover, interior book design, and images (if you have any) to produce a polished and professional design. Whether you need clean formatting or detailed illustrations for your cover, you’re going to want a pro to do the job right.
