FOR AUTHORS

I have a true passion for book design. If you are currently writing, or have completed writing your manuscript and are ready to create an amazing, award-winning cover design and interior, then you have come to the right place! I have worked with such a wide variety of authors on an array of the subject matter. If you are seeking a simple, clean and elegant design, or an explosive, full color, over-the-top custom design, I'd love to learn more about your project and work together to bring your vision to life.  It doesn't end with custom design, I also have years of experience preparing books for print with many different publishers. If you need help with editing, deciding on a publisher, acquiring an ISBN # or even marketing your book, my list of resources are some of the best in the biz, and I would happily refer you in the right direction to ensure you have the help and information you need for the most successful book launch. Let's design an award-winning book together!

PAST AWARDS:

Your book cover is the first impression your book will make on potential readers. I can help make sure that impression is nothing short of amazing to your target audience. I work with both self-publishing authors, and those working with publishers to create beautiful, unique, and show-stopping cover designs. Front cover, back cover, spine, and print set-up, I'm here to help with every step of designing your book cover and ensuring your files are print-ready no matter the printer or publisher you chose.

"Kendra and I just finished up my first book, and it looks spectacular. I'm a first time author, and working with Kendra was fabulous. She was friendly, responsive, fast as lightning, and quickly incorporated all my edits, and I am hitting my deadline for publication. She made the process so easy, I'm already planning my next book. THANK YOU Kendra!!! You're fabulous, and I can't wait to work with you again."

Your cover is done, but the design doesn't end there. Your book's interior layout and design is just as important as it's cover. Even a simple clean black and white book interior needs that extra special touch to look professional and eye-catching.  Not only can I help to create a high end interior design, but I can also take the guess work out of formatting, from the very first page to the very last, I have years of experience in working with authors and publishers, and will ensure the structure of your book is set up properly. That is, if you want it that way. If you are the kind of person who likes to take risks and wants something really unique, full color, and completely out-of-the-box, I can help with this too! Your book will be completely custom built from beginning to end, I do not use templates so no two books are ever exactly alike! What a better way to stand out!

“To design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit: it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to modify, to dignify, to dramatize, to persuade, and perhaps even to amuse. To design is to transform prose into poetry.”
