Overview

I am a book designer offering creative services in book cover and interior book design/typesetting for both independent authors and publishers.

My published work includes books in these categories:

- NON FICTION (Biographies & Memoirs, Self help, Christian, Business & Management).

- FICTION (Inspirational, Romance, Thriller, Poetry, Children books).



BOOK COVER DESIGN

I've designed book covers for international best seller authors and I've helped emerging authors to self publish through different publishing platforms such as Kindle Direct Publishing, Ingramspark, Barnes & Noble, Kindle and many others.


INTERIOR TYPESETTING
I will be happy to show you samples of interior typesetting work I’ve done.

_______________________________________________


I provide the following files:


BOOK COVER DESIGN:

- ebook cover
- paperback cover (front - back - spine)
- 3D covers + social media banner
- source files (in case of future changes)

Hardcovers: Case Laminate + Dust Jacket covers + Jacketed Case Laminate (Case Laminate + Dust Jacket).


INTERIOR TYPESETTING:

- interior paperback PDF
- interior ebook EPUB
- interior ebook for KINDLE only
- source files


_______________________________________________


COVER DESIGN PROCESS:

I usually work on 2-3 (or more) cover ideas in 3-4 days.

If you’re happy with the covers and you decide to move forward with one of them:


1. We finalise the winning design.
2. I get the Ebook cover files + 3D covers + social media banner ready for you.
3. We work on the paperback cover (front + spine + back).



INTERIOR TYPESETTING PROCESS:

It’s important that the manuscript is ready and that it has been edited and proofread before starting.


Step 1: I receive the final edited and proofread manuscript and I create a sample interior PDF (paperback - print file).

Step 2: the author reviews it and approves it.

Step 3: I work on the rest of the interior (print version) | 3-4 days.

Step 4: the author reviews it.

Step 5: we’ll make changes, if needed (I provide two free rounds of changes).

Step 6: the author approves the interior paperback PDF.

Step 7: I convert it into en Ebook | 2-3 days.

Vanessa was a delight to work with and made various changes for me when I requested. I would be happy to work with her again with my next book. She listened to what I wanted done and was easy to communicate with.

Ian Turner
Vanessa is a friendly, very competent, and creative designer, who advised me very well on the cover design for my first book. She always delivered on time, communicated extremely well, and was not afraid to go the extra mile. The final cover tested excellent, and I am extremely pleased with Vanessa's performance.

Ian Turner, May 2022


Kennedy Sangiovese
Working with Vanessa was the most amazing experience! She is so attentive and punctual, full of ideas and suggestions, attentive to the little things without quibbling that their extras. I can’t wait to work with her on my next book!

Vanessa was a pleasure to work with and quickly completed the interior design work for my book. Even though we were several time zones apart communication was never an issue and any necessary changes on her end were handled promptly.
