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.

I've worked with Vanessa on two novels and couldn't be happier with her work. She matches remarkable creativity with technical know-how and the results are special. She's been supportive and helpful while guiding me through this process. She was timely and responsive throughout our collaboration. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I've been working with Vanessa for several years now and she's as talented, quick and friendly as ever! She shares her recommendations without pushing, accepts feedback, and, of course, has an incredible eye for design. Highly recommended.

Incredible partner throughout the book cover design process. Vanessa is amazing. Stop searching for another designer. Get in touch with her ASAP. I fear my book cover is 10 times better than the actual book! Will 100% work with Vanessa again.
