A la Carte Book Production Services

If you’re an author planning on self-publishing but you need help with technical or editorial, we’re here to help. At Artisan Bookworks, we recognize that every author has a unique vision and we would be honored to bring yours to life.  We love children’s books best but are open to other genres of fiction and will consider some non-fiction.

Book Interiors

We believe in quality over quantity. Artisan Bookworks crafts beautiful print and eBooks interiors for discerning authors who want the best for their readers.

Editing and Proofreading

Reading a book filled with grammatical and typographical errors is frustrating. Solid spelling, correct punctuation and overall consistency are fundamental to creating a well-written work, that your readers will appreciate.

Our Process

  1. Complete our quotation request form and we’ll determine exactly what services you need.
  2. Please email your manuscript (so we can better discuss and estimate your book project (we keep all manuscripts strictly confidential)
  3. We will return a detailed quote outlining the plan for your book. This is the time to ask questions. We’ll also include details for making payment and submitting files.
  4. We will send you sample chapter options showing how your book will look. You will need to approve these samples.
  5. We will layout your book page by page, chapter by chapter, placing illustrations where necessary, following the agreed upon specifications and requirements.
  6. After completing the layout, we will send you a digital proof that you can review and note any alterations, if needed.
  7. Once the final layout is approved, we issue a print-ready PDF, ePub file (optional), and the master file in Adobe InDesign. You are now ready to publish!¹
