This was a favorite project of mine because it was an unexpected Christmas gift for the author from a good friend of hers. Together we took the manuscript he had edited, typeset it, added the front and back matter, and got excited about the cover design, even down to the best font to fit Takeri's personality.
Liz did her amazing editing on this book and then I worked on the typesetting. We found an illustrator Richard liked and got his widow's permission to use his images throughout the book, which made the interior so rich. Then we did the cover design and e-book formatting before uploading it all to Amazon KDP.
If you Lead, People Will Follow by Richard E. Hellen. Richard has written a book about the leadership skills he learned, lived, and now teaches. This is his third book with us, and we worked together to create a complete publishing package of editing, print layout/typesetting, ebook formatting, cover, bio, jacket copy, and uploads to Amazon KDP.
Dennis and I worked hard on this book to make sure it conveyed his heart and addressed every aspect of marriage with hope and trust. From editing to the final touches on his cover, Dennis took great care to have a product of excellence.
30 Days with Papa: A simple journey deep into the heart of the God you really want to know by Tom Wymore. A beautiful devotional about how to know God intimately. I coached Tom through the self-publishing process, and we worked together on every aspect.
Renee put her heart into this book and it shows. We helped her with every step of the self-publishing process and also worked on the accompanying workbook. She is now selling these at all her workshops and events.
Bill and Brit were a great team for this book. Brit took her favorite teachings on grace from Bill's repertoire and with his input, turned the into a book for us all to enjoy. I was then able to edit it all, typeset it, and create the cover based on a design idea of Bill's. Brit wrote the fabulous jacket copy, and together we shortened the authors' bios to the fifty words or so one can fit on a cover.
It's a wonderful experience as an editor to work with such a client. Marilu gulped up every bit of knowledge I passed her way and passed more back to me, thanks to her research. Together we put her testimonies, teachings, and story into chapters so she could have something ready for all the hungry people she speaks to on her travels.
