Cover & Interior Design

A well-designed book is critical to your success. As much work as you put into your manuscript, it may not get the attention it deserves without professional formatting. When there are hundreds of books on a shelf or web page, people will naturally trust the well-designed ones and notice them first and foremost. 

JohnEdgar.Design will help you provide the best possible reading experience for your book’s audience, and help give you the highest possible chance for a customer to fall in love with you at first sight.  


Book Cover Design 

Our Cover Designs combine graphic elements, textures, and photo blending to create a unified piece that complements and emphasizes your book’s content. We design your cover to grab the reader’s attention and to convey the subject of the book. It is the curb appeal that brings them into the home your words create.

Your book cover is the first and best sales tool you possess. It instantly conveys the critical thoughts, messages, and images that sum up your book. On those crowded bookshelves, you need to stand out from everyone else — a beautiful book cover created by the JohnEdgar.Design will be the professional impression your audience is looking for.

Why Choose JohnEdgar.Design Instead Of A Larger Firm?

You get a one on one relationship with a professional book designer that will work with your input and create a custom layout to match the theme and message of your book. No templates, just custom design by a real-life designer who knows your name and listens to you and your story. 

Another plus, we send you proofs throughout the design process to review and give feedback. We make sure your design maintains your voice as much as the words themselves do.  

We stand behind our work with the book publishing industry’s only 100% quality guarantee! We are with you for the life of your book. Your story matters to us.

Interior Book Design (Manuscript Formatting)

Professionally formatted text is an essential part of book design. A clear hierarchy and readable typeface help create a layout that is inviting to your reader. 

Every section you include in your manuscript (foreword, dedication, chapters, etc.) will be custom formatted to create a polished book. We will send a PDF proof for approval before printing. We offer both eBook manuscript formatting and Print manuscript formatting (Black Text or Color Text Design).

Black&White Interior Designs Include:

A customized layout meeting industry standards and coordinated with your printer/publisher to ensure quality and familiarity to readers, which delivers the ultimate reading experience and makes it easy for them to curl up with your story.

Perfect for Novels, Short Fiction, Non-Fiction, Biographies, and Poetry books with few important detailed images in the manuscript.

Black text printing only. Text needing to set itself apart from the standard text will be grayscale.

Images within the text will be printed in grayscale.

Color Interior Designs Include:

Combination of text, graphics, and color photos for the most significant visual impact.

Perfect for image-heavy works like Art & Photography books, Cookbooks, and Children’s books.

Text and Images will be printed in full color.

What Happens After You Hit Buy?

Once you decide the services you desire, you will get a short questionnaire to complete via email. It will allow you to share with us the specifics of your book. Let us know things like your book’s genre, the mood, and style you want it to portray. You can send us images you wish to have included, or images of inspiration. 

We will take a look at what you send and schedule with you an initial consultation. It’s a free thing. We talk (or Video Chat) about the project. It gives us a chance to get to know each other and make a plan for your design that is specific to you and your project. 


A Note: Book design and formatting does not include editorial services. It is strictly a design service. We do offer stand-alone editing services. You should only send us your fully-edited and final text. Non-design related text edits can incur an additional cost.
