Book Design Made Simple
Would you like to try your hand at designing and typesetting your own book? My friend and fellow book designer Fiona Raven and I have written Book Design Made Simple just for you. It offers a step-by-step guide to book interior design, cover design, and preparing files for the printer, all using Adobe InDesign. Now that InDesign is leased by the month, it is much more affordable for anyone to do single projects. Check our website for more information about the book, and to order a copy. Sure, you can use a book design template, but the templates out there are for one-time use, cost more than our book, and don't include the cover. Why not learn the entire process for yourself and design as many books and covers as you like? Unleash your creativity with the power of InDesign plus Book Design Made Simple!
In the spring of 2016, the book won gold medals in two different national book contests: the Independent Publisher (IPPY) Awards and the Next Generation Indie Book Awards. In both contests, we won in the Writing/Publishing category. We have entered some other contests, too, but have not heard the final results yet.
