DENISE TOMBS/ D-DESIGN
Self-publishing has never been easier, but it can still be a daunting process. To succeed in a crowded market place your self-published book needs to have an appealing, striking cover and be attractively laid out. Then it needs to be marketed – in print and on-line – with professional-looking promotional materials.
I’m here to help! I demystify the design and print process for you. I ensure that your book is attractively and professionally produced, to deadline and at a cost-effective price. With over 25 years’ experience in the design & printing industry, I have excellent working relationships with printers in Nelson and Tasman so I can ensure seamless service delivery from manuscript to print.
BOOK DESIGN & PRODUCTION
I can help you with all the design aspects of your book’s production and promotion, or with just one particular aspect of it.
Many self-published authors find it challenging to market their books professionally. I can design professional-looking marketing materials for use in print or online, including FaceBook and other social media.
HOW I WORK
I’m approachable & friendly, and work from my home office in Stoke, Nelson. However, I’m happy to meet wherever you feel most comfortable – at a café or at your place – for an initial discussion about your writing/publishing project. Once I understand your requirements, I am completely open about costs and supply you with a no-obligation quote. If you accept my quote, I work tirelessly to ensure your project is completed to your deadlines and within budget.
