Do I need a professional book designer to help me format and finish my book?

Professional Book Designer

You’ve put together a valuable new resource that has the potential of helping your clients. You really want to self-publish your book and not have to hire a professional book designer. But here you are just about ready to send it out into the world, except your fabulous new book remains sitting on your desktop as a Word document.

  • You know that you have to do things the right way so people will respect you as a professional writer.
  • Doing it all alone can be daunting, as there’s no time to waste.
  • You cannot spend your time fiddling with or learning how to use InDesign or Canva to produce that perfect book.
  • Just as you are a professional in your field, you need a professional book designer; one who will know how to format your book, taking into consideration all the editorial rules and software tricks that will help create that breathtaking book that your public will want to read.  Let’s face it, nobody likes to read an ugly book.

TestimonialMarina Rivón is an outstanding graphic designer who plays a synergic role in a team to achieve results and communicate your message. For over 20 years, she developed many public service campaigns for the nonprofit organizations I directed, including recycling, planting campaigns, conservation of water resources, fundraising, and recruiting volunteers. She also designed for us several publications, from manuals to educational and outreach materials. Thanks to Marina’s talents, we were able to leverage over half million dollars in public service ad placements, recruit hundreds of volunteers, and increase our brand recognition by 56%. More than an asset to your organization, Marina will become a partner, a dear colleague, and a strong ally.

TestimonialDear Ms Rivón:
Let me thank you again for your outstanding work in our most recent project together, Crónicas de María. I am well aware that this was a challenging endeavor due to the complexity of merging image with text and making both elements work in an effective and aesthetic manner.

I am also grateful that you were able to manage, in a professional and beyond the call of duty, the difficulties arising from conflicting opinions amongst the members of the administrative committee. Thank you again for your excellent work.

Whatever question you may have you can give us a call at 787-731-8795 for a friendly consultation.

First of all, we should meet so you can tell us exactly what you have in mind, your time frame, budget, and other details that might affect the production schedule of the book.

Then if appropriate, we will send you an estimate of the costs of the services you need. If all is well, we will create a production schedule so you will know where your project is at all times. And depending on the deadlines established we start with your masterpiece.

We will always show you a mock-up of your book for your approval and change whatever we decide together that doesn’t work, or you would like to change. You will always have the final word.

Give us a call so we can set a date for some coffee or tea and discuss your expectations.

We can also prepare some collateral marketing pieces, let’s talk!
