BOOK COVER DESIGN

After payment, you will get a questionnaire to fill to provide us with full details.

We give two professional cover designs option with an opportunity to modify each twice

We welcome that; you can share your concept with us before we start the process. In case you don’t have any; we would create one for you.

After delivering both covers, you can modify each of them twice. We can create the first options and allow people to do a vote before the final modification is done.

On each modification/sample, you will be paying 10,000 naira extra

After sending you the cover(s), you have 72 hours to review and send back the modifications. After this period, we would assume that you have no modification and if any change comes afterwards, you’d be paying 10,000 foreach modification.

 In a situation where you find both cover attractive and useful, you will be charged an additional 20,000 naira to have the right to use both.

BOOK INTERIOR DESIGN

  1. It is preferable that you use Microsoft Word for your manuscript.
  2. The genre of the book should be communicated.
  3. Use different levels of font sizes to indicate the hierarchy of chapter titles, major headings, and subheadings, and make them bold. If appropriate, number the sections and subsections. This way, the logical flow of your manuscript will be obvious to the book designer.
  4. Do not add text boxes. If you want text to appear in a fancy box or a wrapped quote, type ***begin sidebar*** and ***end sidebar*** and the designer will take care of it.
  5. Do not import your pictures into Word, or copy and paste them into the document. Supply the high-resolution images files separately from your manuscript file and indicate where you want them placed by typing in bracket or red highlights the image name and we will take care of the rest.
  6. Please don’t get too fancy with the font. A serif font (i.e., Times Roman) is preferable, this will be an easier font for the designer to read.
  7. Include a table of contents if the chapters have titles.
