Lorna Reid

Lorna Reid – Designer

I am a professional book formatter/interior designer who enjoys working in all genres, from fantasy and sci-fi to romance and YA fiction.

Overview

I am a professional book formatter/designer who enjoys working with clients from all over the world on their self-publishing journey. I format books for print and digital markets in a wide range of genres and have a passion for working with indie authors from all walks of life.

My love for books has been present throughout my life, and being able to work with authors to bring their books one step closer to publication makes my heart sing.

I have worked across a wide range of genres, and especially enjoy genre fiction, such as Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Horror, Romance, Thrillers, and sub-genres, such as YA, Urban, Paranormal, Dystopian, and Post Apocalyptic. I'm easy going, can work to tight deadlines, and have a good sense of humour. There is nothing I like more than seeing a client's work move out in the world and enrich it.

A few client testimonials:
----------------------------------
Being that this is my first time self-publishing, I wasn't sure how the formatting procedure would go. Lorna was excellent in informing me of how this process was going to go and she exceeded my expectations when it came down to professionalism and meeting deadlines. I plan on collaborating with her again in the future.

Lorna was fabulous to work with. She made changes without complaint and was patient when I ran a little behind schedule (waiting for the cover design from another designer.) Her work is picture perfect and I'm so happy to have found her.

I approached Lorna as a complete amateur and she was extremely patient and answered far too many questions! The formatting in 3 different formats was just as I hoped and more. I would not hesitate in recommending Lorna

Lorna was an excellent collaborator on this project. It was enormously important to me to end up with the highest quality book possible and Lorna instinctively understood that. She was kind, responsive and devoted. We encountered a software SNAFU at one point, but once we figured it out she did not hesitate to get on the problem and make things right immediately. Sometimes the nature of email c...

Lorna is fantastic at what she does, and my books are always beautifully formatted. I've never had any trouble with printing, and if ever there's anything awry, it's fixed very quickly. She's great, and I highly recommend her!

Some things came to light that made me decide to change the size of the paperback (people, calculate print costs beforehand, trust me). Since this was more than a few corrections, it amounted to another brief, which came at a very reasonable added cost. She had tempered expectations about what was possible but turned the final interior design in well within the asked for page count. Overall, e...

I specialize in humorous character focused covers, but my style naturally fits both horror and dramatic works too.
