Book design, book typesetting & book creation for self-publishing authors who want a beautifully professional finish.

Imagine this: you’ve finished writing your book and you want to self-publish it. All you need to do now is to find that special someone who can help you achieve a beautifully professional finished product.

Well, you can stop imagining—you’ve found Extrabold Books!

Everyone judges a book by its cover!*

*Yes, a variation on a well-worn cliché, but true, unfortunately.

As an author, all those words you’ve sweated over will probably only get read if your book’s cover and page design attract readers to it in the first place. An attractive cover, that neatly summarises your book’s contents, gives you an instant foot-in-the-door to a sale or download.

You’ve got just seconds for your book to make that vital good first impression, online, or on a bookseller’s shelf. With the help of Extrabold Books, your self-published book’s design will really help sell it, with impact.

Book text design: page layout and typesetting

With a printed book, the next decision stage for the potential reader is the ‘flick through’. This could be preview pages online or a physical flick of the pages in a bookshop. So many elements will influence them: the fonts, sizing, spacing, illustrations, heading styles... it’s a surprisingly long list. Draw on my expertise to ensure your book’s pages are designed and typeset in a way that enhances and complements your content.

E-book creation

The primary decision for you, if you want to make an e-book version available, is what format e-book will best suit your particular book and your intended selling or distribution platform for it. Getting that right will contribute to your book’s uptake and success.
