Typesetting is the process of laying out the content of the book on to pages, ready for printing. A well-executed book layout helps in providing a pleasurable reading experience.

Writing a book takes a lot of planning, hard work, and a lot of time, so the interior formatting and design should express the love and effort you dedicated to complete it. The size of the interior text, the font used, and how the pages are laid out all have a direct impact on a reader’s experience with your book. Although many authors and self-publishers don’t give much thought on their published work’s formatting, most book readers have longstanding reading habits or a preference for consistency when it comes to text layout.

I will format and layout the interior of your book so that it follows formatting conventions and accepted trade practices that help create a good-looking book.

I will design the first chapter of your book and submit it to you for review. You will have the opportunity to provide feedback on elements, such as the fonts chosen, the spacing between the lines, chapter heads and indents.

After you have approved the sample, I will proceed along the same lines with the rest of the book.

After the book is completed, you will have another opportunity to review the book in PDF format and point out any design corrections.

After all changes have been incorporated, a high resolution PDF version of the book will be prepared and will be send to you.

Whether it's a novel, an autobiography, a poetry, a crime drama, a business or non-fiction book full of tables and images, I can make the interior of your book look beautiful. There are some examples of my typesetting work below...
