James Woosley - Designer

Satsuma, AL, United States

I love making books come to life! Professional layout & design, CreateSpace/KDP setup, project management, coaching...and high quality.

Overview

When it comes to books, I'm a perfectionist with a healthy dose of OCD (not clinically!). I started out designing my own books because I wanted to ensure they had a completely professional look and feel—something with the same level of quality as anything from a top-tier publishing house. That led me to begin publishing books for clients through my own imprint and as a freelancer.

I love working with first-time authors, but that's not a litmus test. Beyond the design work, I serve as a trusted guide through the self-publishing process. I can help develop an overall project schedule for your entire production. I can also do the setup in CreateSpace and KDP, so you can focus on building a launch team and promoting your upcoming book.

Overall, I'm just a guy who likes helping people fulfill their dream of writing and publishing a book. It was my dream that came true, so I know how important it is.

Do you end up reworking projects instead of... read more
