Reader-Ready Book Design
The right book design supports solid writing and helps it reach readers in the best way possible. Whether you need interior book design and typesetting, ebook design, or cover design, Looseleaf has the expertise to get your book ready for readers’ eyes. All our book designs provide you with files that are ready to take straight to the printer or to upload to Amazon, Smashwords, iBooks, and more. We provide book production services at package or project rates.
Interior Book Design for Print & Ebooks
The interior is the meat of the book, and no meat should be half prepared. Looseleaf creates custom templates for each book and series we touch and styles each page for the smoothest, friendliest reading experience for your particular audience. Then we create an ebook design that reflects the print version and captures the customization for your unique story.
Looseleaf offers package pricing for book design.
Cover Design: $45/hour (project rates available)
Cover design takes existing artwork or images and designs the typography, cropping, and layout to best reflect your book and attract readers who will love it. Project rates vary depending on the number of drafts and revisions.
Fixed-Layout Ebook Design
Most ebooks are reflowable, which means readers can select the font size and style that best suits their reading preferences. But that experience isn’t the best option for all books. Looseleaf designs fixed-layout ebooks for select genres, primarily comic books/graphic novels and cookbooks.
“Kristy’s talents and hard work on the book’s layout and design can be seen on every page.”
Brandon Sanderson, NYT-bestselling author of the Stormlight Archive
“Kristy does a fantastic job every time. She’s punctual, thorough, affordable, and great to work with.”
Brian McClellan, author of the Powder Mage series
“Assembling a novel is akin to fitting ten thousand pieces of an intricate jigsaw puzzle together. Through several iterations of my manuscript, Kristy has been relentless in showing me where pieces were in the wrong place, were starved for elaboration, or belonged in an entirely different puzzle. The day I began working with Kristy was a fortunate day. I don’t want to imagine what my project would look like without her.”
Ron Felt, literary fiction writer
“Kristy is a joy and a pleasure to work with. She works quickly and efficiently with steep deadlines, and has an eye for detail that has helped me tremendously. She’s very dedicated to her work and treated my manuscript professionally, offering great critique and overall edits. I highly recommend her.”
Charlie N. Holmberg, Wall Street Journal bestseller
“Thank you very much. This [manuscript evaluation] is exactly what I need. You’ll likely hear from me again when it’s time for me to rework my query letter. Your help is invaluable. […] My novel has improved by leaps and bounds thanks to you.”
Ryan Williams, YA fantasy writer
