Self Publishers Helpful Links

Several of my clients have asked me questions about page count and book dimensions when formatting their books. I have gathered some information that I thought I could share with you.

Story Illustrations For Any Project!

Here are a few things to think about when requesting illustrations:

  • Do you know who you want to publish/print your book?
  • Do you know what your book’s dimensions will be?
  • Do you have descriptions on how you want your illustrations to look?
  • Do you want me to come up with the ideas based on your material?
  • Do you know how many illustrations you need?
  • Do you want to use one of the images for your cover, or something new?

Book Cover Specifications

For cover creation you will need to provide the following check list:

  • Title and author’s name as you want it to appear on the cover.
  • Dimensions of your book.
  • Page count ( so we can configure spine width ).
  • Back of book text- description of what your book is about.
  • What you would like to see on the cover. – Please keep in mind that we have a small area to work with and I will do everything I can to create the cover of your dreams.
  • If there are any specific characters to go onto the cover, please let me know the important details such as age, hair color, height, weight, eye color, race, clothing details, etc.
  • Let me know of geographical area if it is important for the cover such as mountains, water/beach,  climate.
  • Let me know the time era.
  • Do you want art work on the front only or do you want the full wrap around where there is artwork across the front, spine and back?

I can send you a time frame of when you will receive your first sample once I receive the above information. 

Thank you for choosing Digitell Design and I look forward to working with you on your new book cover!
