Get Ready to Design a Book... Your Book!

Key Book Design helps independent authors design a book, self publish it, and get it to market. 

Hello and welcome! My name is Ellen and I provide custom design and publishing services for independent authors because I believe in the power of self publishing. Indie authors keep the majority of their book sale profits, retain all their book rights, and they have complete control how the book is designed, created, priced, marketed and distributed. With some publishing knowledge and technical assistance from this website and Key Book Design, you CAN become a published author.

I’m an author too, and I taught myself how to typeset and design a book after learning first-hand that publishing house contracts aren't generous to new authors. I eventually published all of my own books and I can tell you that learning how to do that was seriously time-intensive. My background in information technology certainly helped.

After several of my colleagues asked me to help them design and publish their books, I realized many authors are able to find and implement writing and editing advice on their own, but had trouble with the technical aspects of book design and publishing.  Hence, I offer the following services:

  • professional design and typesetting of your manuscripts into a beautiful book interior
  • design of a compelling cover
  • design and creation of electronic book files 
  • upload of final book files to any of the POD (print on demand) book publishers, such as Amazon or Ingram Spark.
  • I can also build an author website, or help build other products such as courses, or just help with any other technical need you might have.

My overall goal is to help independent authors circumvent the traditional publishing route and achieve success at writing a book. It’s a win-win; my clients get to see their book go live and keep the majority of their book-sale profits, and I get to work at something I love to do and lend a hand to my fellow writers. If you are looking for someone to help you get over the publishing finish line, give me a shout. I can help.

My self-publishing journey started ten years ago when I published my own books on my website and the major publishing outlets. I feel blessed to have discovered how to do this for myself as it was a positive turning point in my life. Today, I look forward to helping you design your books.
