Book Design

When publishing a book, you must design two separate parts. One is the interior of the book and one is the cover. We offer two levels of design for both, assuming your manuscript been accepted for publication by The Cheerful Word imprint.

Interior book design

Level I: A layout of the text only. We’ll give you a choice between two interior design options. You’ll receive two PDF drafts – a rough draft and a final draft. One proof print.

Price:   Based on number of words per book.

20,000 - 40,000: $2,000

40,000 - 60,000: $2,500

Level II: A layout of both text and up to 10 photos. Custom interior design options. This will include a complex integration of text with a limited number of photos (converted to black and white) that support the stories told within the memoir. Photos will include captions.
