The cover is the reader's first impression of the book and/or author, so it's important to have a cover that is original, professional, and fits the feel of the book. BookLogix can design covers for softcover, hardcover, and eBook formats. Illustrated covers are also available.
All cover designs include the following:
Meeting with team of designers to collaborate on design/set-up
- Designers provide author with initial mockups
- After author provides feedback, revised mockup(s) provided for the author to select the final design
- Once final cover design is selected, designer will make minor modifications as needed
Whether you are working on a children's book, novel, or any other genre, you may want to add illustrations to enhance the story or add an illustrated cover to create the perfect showcase for your manuscript. BookLogix's illustrators can create just the right illustrations for your book, based on the style of art you prefer. Illustrations may be traditional (hand-drawn) or digital. The length of time it takes for an illustrator to complete illustrations depends on a few factors, such as how many illustrations you need, the style of illustration, and level of detail needed in the illustrations. If your book will include illustrations, please account for extra time in your publishing timeline.
Interior Text Layout/Design
The interior text layout service will format, design, and organize the text, charts, graphs, and images of the manuscript to fit the appropriate print format, look, and feel for its genre and audience. Layout essentially covers the interior design of the book. Placement of margins, headers, subheads, chapter title locations, where pages fall, where other elements fall (photos, tables, charts, figures, etc.), font choices and sizes, etc. are all encompassed in the layout service. It will also ensure all charts, graphs, and images are in the correct resolution for optimal printing, including any necessary recreation of these items.
BookLogix will meet with the author in order to determine any requirements in regards to style that will need to be followed throughout the layout process.
