DiLello Design is proud to offer book design services for independent authors, artists, and other creatives. In partnership with Alice Rose, we can help get you from concept to first edition by providing concept coaching, cover and interior designs, ebook creation, and print file preparation. Whether you’re looking to publish a collection of poems, create a beautiful album of wedding photos or something else entirely, we’re here to help.
+ How does it work?
Our process is broken down into three main parts:
1. Concept Coaching - Meet with a concept coach as needed to hone your ideas, talk through printing options, and prepare for the design process.
2. Design Process - Work with a graphic designer to decide on the look and feel for your book. Get a customized interior layout design, optional cover design, and print-ready & ebook files when the design is complete.
3. Final Product - Whether you are selling your book through Amazon or giving out a handful of copies as gifts, we will help get your book into your hands.
+ How Much does it cost?
Your initial meetings with our concept coach are complimentary. When the content for your book is complete, you will be charged a flat fee to have a planning meeting with our designer. After that, design work is charged hourly.
Pricing will vary based on a variety of factors including page count, number of images, and production decisions like cover material, color quality, and shipping times. We will help give you an idea of how much it will cost to create your book by walking you through some of these crucial decisions.
+ What do I need to get started?
All you really need is an idea for a book. Whether you’ve written a novel, created a cookbook, have art or photographs you want to showcase, or something else entirely, we can help you publish it. Click below to get in touch.
+ What is "self-publishing"?
It’s not as scary as it sounds. When you have work to share with the world through the medium of a book, you have two options: send your manuscript to a traditional publisher and convince them to publish you, or put it into the world yourself. By doing it yourself you are acting as both author and publisher. That means you have 100% control over the content, design, and distribution of your book. You also get 100% of the profits. There are a lot of options and resources for self-publishers these days, including print-on-demand services, seamless distribution through popular avenues like Amazon, and marketing assistance. We’re here to be one of those resources.
