About me

I’m a top rated freelancer who offers a personal, tailored book layout and typesetting service at a competitive price. The books I design are indistinguishable from books by the largest publishing houses, and are so much better than the typical self published books that can be produced via automated services online.
 
I have designed fiction as well as non-fiction books, both the covers and the interior design and typography. I know how to design a book, inside and out, that will captivate and immerse your readers and keep them glued to the text.
 
I’ve worked with dozens of publishers and know what it takes to get a book noticed and look professionally designed. Whether you want typesetting and design for a novel or a scientific textbook I have the skills to ensure a professionally designed book you can be proud of.

Submitting your Word document just doesn't Cut it for most Books.

Yes, you can submit your Word document to Kindle Direct Publishing or Ingram sparks and hope for the best, but this can often result in poor quality typesetting, an inconsistent appearance with a basic table of contents or Index.
 
You just don’t get that fine level control and customization that you get from a professional application like Indesign
— the industry standard for book layout and design. I’m an expert in not just Indesign but Photoshop and Illustrator, so If you want the images for your book adjusted, cropped, sharpened or require any other graphic design, I offer this service also.
 
Working with me means you have direct influence over how your book looks, you get consistent results and I get to know your likes and dislikes. I also offer a fast turn-arounds so you can get your book published in days rather than weeks.

The Problem with Hiring Non-English speakers.

Many people hire non-English speaking freelancers, often from South Asia, because they offer services at a fraction of the cost. While hiring a foreign freelancer can be cheap, poor communication often leads to frustration, wasted time and un-expected results. Cheap can mean they miss those small improvements, that when added up, separate a mediocre book from one that looks professionally designed.  Also, while i’m not a proof reader, being a native English speaker means I will look out for any editorial mistakes I come across.

Typesetting services FAQs

No, typesetting is done at the very end after your book has been edited and proof read. Typesetting is the interior design and layout of your book, using your final edited manuscript. While I will look out for any spelling mistakes I come across this is best done by a professionally editor and proof reader.

Yes, and I will not charge anything for the first 10 changes. After this I will charge £1.00 or $1.25 for every editorial change/typo after that. For example, if you discover 20 typos to correct, this will cost 10 x £1.00 or £10.00 / $12.50.
 
Text Edits include single changes made to one place in the book (for example a typo, or punctuation change) and global changes when the same error appears several times in the book (for example the spelling of someone's name). Each single change or global change counts as 1 Text Edit. Pricing is per round.

You can send me your Microsoft word files including; .docx, .doc and .rtf. If you have any images you would like included you can also send these. Just visit this link and upload them now.

For a book that is around 70,000 words it should take less than a week to receive your typeset sample for review, although this will vary depending on the number of images/tables and the complexity of the formatting. It may then take another week to implement any ideas, suggestions or improvements to the book.

You can receive unlimited design changed at no extra charge. You can also receive up to 10 text changes for free, such as additional paragraphs you forgot to include or missed spelling mistakes you later discover.  However I will charge £1.00 or $1.25 for every editorial change/typo after that. For example, if you discover 20 typos to correct, this will cost 10 x £1.00 or £10.00 / $12.50.

According to Merriam-Webster, typesetting is “the process of setting material in type or into a form to be used in printing.” They are rules that include everything from the typeface, to the spacing between each letter, word, line or paragraph. It can include not just letters but glyphs and symbols. It's not just the words but the formatting of the text including margins and alignment that make your book more readable and professional enabling you to complete with the best sellers in your genre.

Typesetting should include correct margins, alignment, letter spacing, line spacing and paragraph spacing. It should aim to prevent widows and orphans, isolated sub-headings at the bottom of the page or single lines of text at the top of a page. All the “rules” of typesetting make the text more readable and provide a higher quality book. Attention to these details, along with the design sense of a professional make your book look more attractive, ensures a pleasant reading experience and can minimize fraction of a second long pauses that distract the reader.
 
While Microsoft Word and other word processors enable anyone to type out a book, they are limited as far as typesetting is concerned. They do not follow the rules of typesetting and can lead to poor quality results.
 
Adobe In-design on the other hand, is the industrial standard for designing professional books. It has many features and settings that enable designers to follow the results of typesetting, but only if the designer knows what settings to adjust. Experienced typesetters rarely use the software application at the default settings and will adjust the settings for the best results, sometimes paragraph by paragraph, line by line, and even word by word—a grueling yet satisfying activity that harkens back to traditional typesetters.
 
The Amazon Look Inside feature gives people a peek at the book page composition, making it a part of their buying decision and potentially exposing sloppy formatting. If the book is meant to compete with bestsellers in a genre, or has been produced as an educational book, as a marketing tool or to promote the author as a thought leader, book quality is of premium importance.

Wondering how much my typesetting service will cost. This will depend on a number of factors such as the number of pages, images/tables, whether you want a cover for your book, a paperback version of your book. Just visit this link to get a free instant quote right now.

Please send them in the largest size possible. Print books require high resolution images. Small or low resolution images can mean the image looks blurry when printed.
