Alongside finding an illustrator for your manuscript, you will probably need the services of a graphic designer to format your book ready for print. As a graphic designer experienced in book formatting, Lucy Smith offers a book design service which can run alongside or separate to the illustration service. From initial layouts, to typesetting, cover design and overall book formatting for print, this service takes the stress and worry out of publishing.
Nonni’s Moon by Julia Inserro and illustrated by Lucy Smith
Let’s Talk to Mummy’s Tummy by Helen A Lacey and illustrated by Carla Moreno
“Lucy formatted my first self published book; ‘Let’s talk to Mummy’s tummy.’ It was a big project and being a newbie indie author I knew absolutely nothing! Lucy was perfect in this respect as she guided me through every step, involved me and kept me updated throughout the whole process.– Helen A Lacey, author of ‘Let’s Talk to Mummy’s Tummy’
She even communicated with the publishers for me as I struggled with some of the technical questions they were asking. The end design of the book was absolutely fantastic! The whole process, from start to finish, was stress free. Lucy is fantastic to work with; Patient and professional and easy to communicate with. I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else! I’ve booked her for next project. Goes without saying but I can highly recommend her services.”
