Any book, memoir, commercial, trade, etc. has the following elements associated with its production:
- Cover Design – We will work with you to create two professional and pleasing cover designs and you can choose the one you like best. We like hard cover because the feel is better than soft cover. Plus, hard cover has a longer “shelf life.” The hard cover format ensures a product that retains its look and quality for a lifetime.
- Text – The text file is checked for formatting to make sure it is a “normal” file. We review files for special characters, inadvertent mark-ups, typos and any other issue that could potentially detract from a professionally polished final product.
- Editing – Even though most memoir books are not designed for commercial sales, we feel that the book should be looked at by an editor. We retain your ‘voice’ while ensuring that the text is professionally grammatical and error-free. This is a strongly recommended and affordable option.
- Images — This is where we need you to guide us with regard to what you want. For examples of “Good – Better – Best,” go to our “images” site page. What is the look and ‘feel’ of your memoir.
