Cover story

Originally designed for collection of poetry and illustrations inspired by ancient myths and legends, this cover and the interior layout and design, ended up being rejected, the client going a different direction. When I started the project I wanted the cover to convey a lazy afternoon walk through history and legends magically side by side in one park, I liked it so much I might still use it for a future project, hopefully with a less cumbersome title.

When does it make sense to self publish?

If you're a successful business person, a book could help you promote yourself as an expert. Having a book to sell could be great compliment at events were you've been asked to speak.  If you've been writing a blog for some time now to promote yourself as an expert, you probably already have enough great material archived to make a great book. Often you can write the initial expenses against marketing, and  the book can even begin to pay for itself as you sell copies of your books to clients and at speaking engagements and lectures.

It makes sense to self publish, if you can hire someone to do some, or all the work for you. Self-publishing isn't just for people who have written a memoir, cookbook or family history that they want to share with family and friends. Below are just two of the books I've helped people to publish. If you'd like to self-publish book, but don't want to do all the work, I can help. Send me an email and I can tell you how.

Rapport cards

This was great fun for me. I designed this entire deck of 54 animal cards, and I saw it through every step of the publishing process, including package design. I am currently working on designs for a new box for the second printing.
