If you’re looking for an affordable, professional book designer, you’ve come to the right place. At Scribe Freelance, our book design rates are among the most affordable in the publishing industry. While we normally work with micro press publishers, small presses, and self-published authors, the work we produce is akin to that of the big publishing houses, whose in-house book designers have set the bar quite high. Therefore, our book designs must also be of the highest quality.
As professional independent book designers, we are dedicated to helping self-published authors, micro-press publishers, and small presses produce the best products possible. In so doing, we provide professional interior layouts for books published via print-on-demand (POD) or the traditional offset press, and ensure quality and superiority in these areas. Our layout service is professional grade, as we strive to apply a meticulous form of interior design with each work assigned to us.
Designing a book's Interior isn't as simple as it sounds, and it requires a professional eye when considering the right typeface and size; leading (between lines); proper hyphenation and text wrapping for tight, clean looking text; attractive headers/footers, industry-standard bastard and full title pages, a correctly formatted copyright page, and so on. Be assured that our book design will befit the subject matter of your book, as this will be important to your prospective readers. In addition, we take the various book genres into consideration, tailoring our book designs to meet or exceed the standards of normal publishing conventions.
Not only do we specialize in interior book design, we also provide a top level book cover design service that is available to authors and publishers requiring sophisticated and streamlined covers, be it essentially simple, but professional, or graphically enhanced to wow your intended readers. And there are three levels of our cover design service to choose from: Standard, Graphic Design, and Premium.
Often, an image has to be licensed if you do not own the rights to it. Once the image licenses for any images needed to design your cover are acquired, we will take your concepts into consideration as we work to bring your book cover to life. If you have no concepts in mind, we can brainstorm a few for you based on your book's content: the protagonist, overall plot, locations, themes, and subject matter, etc. We will also provide a cover that best represents your book's content without giving away crucial plot details (depending on the genre), which could potentially make for an unfavorable reading experience.
As concerns non-fiction titles, we often mix color combinations and gradients from scratch when preparing backgrounds for Graphic Design covers, and special title sequences are played up to draw in a prospective reader’s attention and enhance the overall look of the front cover. But despite what genre you have decided to publish, we can accommodate your publishing needs by turning your raw manuscript into a professional looking product that will be highly salable. So partner with us on your next book and let us bring your vision to life. Thanks to us, self-published authors and small presses can now play with the big boys!
We also have professional editors on hand who provide excellent proofreading, copy editing, and rewriting services. If your writing is essentially polished and all you require is a thorough read-through of your work for minor error checks in spelling, punctuation, grammar, capitalization, etc., then our proofreading service is for you, and the lowest rates will apply.
Should you need more hands-on editing, due to your work needing a good polish in grammar, style, consistency, word usage, phrasing, etc., in addition to proofreading, or if you need whole sentences and passages reworked within any number of given texts, then our copyediting or comprehensive editing service should be considered. If, on the other hand, your work must undergo moderate to extensive rewriting, or your overall thoughts need reworking in order to be properly conveyed, then our seasoned editors can be hired to rewrite your book. They will transform your writing and thoughts into polished, highly readable material. Whichever service you choose, be assured that your work will be transformed into a publishable product you can be proud of.
