Books: Digital and Self-Publishing
If you've written a business book, a family history, a personal memoir, a novel, poetry, prayers, or just something to pass on to your children, I can help you find a way to package, present, and reproduce it. I can scan your photos for sizing and placing in your documents. Depending on your needs, I work with graphic artists, illustrators, indexers, printers, binderies, and self-publishing companies to find the right combination.
Books for which I have provided page layout, editing, and/or consulting services include:

Is there a book in your head but you don't have the time or writing confidence to get it written?
I'd love to talk to you about your vision and help your book become a reality, even if you haven't written the first word. Learn more about my writing experience: “Freelance Writing & Editing Solutions.”
Many small publishing projects can be done in-house, where equipment includes a color laser printer with duplexing capability, scanning and spiral binding equipment, booklet/saddle stapling tools, and access to a wide variety of covers and custom papers to create catchy booklets, fliers, letters, brochures, newsletters, reports and even notecards, and postcards.
I partner with local businesses who offer outside services such as high-speed duplication, color copying, blueprint or over-sized document copying and scanning, laminating, sequential numbering imprinting, and additional binding and padding options.
