Book covers – Let’s face it. We all judge a book by its cover. Color, typeface, images and layout combine to give an impression of what a book is about. And it’s decided if it’s liked – in 10 seconds. That’s all the time you have to grab a reader’s attention. And if it doesn’t work – they’re gone – on to the next book. A buyer is lost. So, it pays to get your cover right.

Brilliant book cover design starts with knowledge… Knowledge of the plot of your book, the tone of the writing. Nydia speaks to you to get as much detail as possible. So your book design matches your book contents. You spent countless hours crafting the words in your book. So she wants to do it justice by crafting an equally beautiful book cover…one that truly reflects the quality of your writing.

Book Cover Makeovers – Think your book could use a makeover? Nydia tries to do one free makeover every month.

There are times when an excellent book needs a “facelift” – a more professionally designed book cover to update their image and make them more competitive in their field. If you already have a cover but need to refresh it or touch it up, let me help. Email me with your info to sazzyreader@gmail.com

Graphic Design – If you already have artwork possibly created by another designer – subject to copyright, Nydia can rework the design, altering and recoloring as needed to create the right look and feel for your cover. She will also work with you in choosing the right typeface, color, and layout for your title and name on the cover. If it is a print book, she can also help design, layout and prepare the entire front and back cover. The final cover is delivered via email in the file format to any specifications required for print and digital publishing, so all that has to be done is upload it or sent to the printer.

Conversion to ePub – ePub is the new standard for digital reading. Every day more and more people are using tablets and smartphones for reading. ePub is an intelligent reading format, that it’s easy to use as well as easy to download and quick for distribution.

If you want your book to have success in the new growing digital market is time to sell it in digital bookstores in an ePub format. Contact me with your manuscript in .doc .docx, .pdf or .rtf and I’ll take care of the rest.

Nydia will get your book to an ePub format with an interactive TOC and also in Mobi format for Kindle devices.
