Katje van Loon - Designer

Vancouver, BC, Canada

I turn manuscripts into books you can hold in your hand.


I'm a writer of SFF books and poetry, and over the years I've taught myself to do the publishing aspects of the biz. I do ebook and paperback formatting; I use Scrivener for the former and InDesign for the latter. I can also create a book cover if you have an illustration fully ready to go; I do not design covers from scratch.

Work experience

Book Monkey

August, 2009 – Present (almost 9 years)

Stars Above, Stars Below Press is the publishing house I started to publish a fellow author's books, and she started one to publish mine. It was our way of getting around the stigma of being self-published, which was still huge at that time.

The press is basically me, and we only publish one author's work right now, but I do freelance work outside running it.

The Pack Press
August, 2011 – Present (almost 7 years)

I offer my services as book designer to The Pack Press, sister company to my publishing house, Stars Above, Stars Below Press.
