The project consisted of providing editorial function and full design services to deliver a printed book and e-book for first-time, self-publishing author, David Craig.

The book had to be modern and attractive, standing out in a bookshop against many new books within the popular topic of church leadership. I worked with the author to agree a colour palette, font selection, book cover design and stylistic presentation that would ensure the book was engaging and easy to read at the same time. The book was amended for flow, SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar), accuracy, consistency, marketing copy, and page layout, before files were prepared for print.  Print liaison, quality assurance, ISBN, barcodes, publishing and British Library liaison were also included.

Once the print phase was complete, the book was prepared as a flexible, reflow layout Kindle version, uploaded via KDP and listed on an Amazon Seller Account and Amazon Author Central. Training was provided to the author on how to manage the listing, deliver products sold and market the book.
