I have worked in book publishing since 1976. I love to design (and read) beautiful books, play guitar, & play with my granddaughter, Nora.

Overview

1106 Design is your one-stop source for book design and self-publishing advice, with hand-holding. We offer bestseller-level manuscript editing, book cover design, and book interior design services to make your book the very best it can be, one that will impress buyers and reviewers alike.

If you're overwhelmed with the conflicting and often suspect information offered online by large companies catering to the "hobbyist" publisher, rest easy. We're NOT a self-publishing company. We'll patiently walk you through all the necessary steps to self-publish your book the legitimate (and profitable) way.

You'll talk to real people who fell in love with books a long time ago, not telemarketers working from a script. We'll work closely with you to create a beautiful, easy-to-read book that others will fall in love with, too.

When your book is complete, every penny of revenue is yours, forever (other than printing costs and unavoidable retailer discounts). We never "share" your profits. We'll offer helpful advice, specific to your situation, and we'll even tell you if you don't need one of our services. (The nuns who taught us are dead, but they're still watching.)

Book publishing is a fiercely competitive business. Amazon will display your book next to similar bestsellers, so your book must measure up to succeed. To get started, review the samples, customer reviews and pricing on our website and then contact us for a quote.

We work for authors across the US, and beyond. All you need is a completed manuscript and an internet browser. Let's go!
