Book Design, Publishing Consultation & More


VertVolta will work with you to design your book’s interiors and covers. You are involved in every part of the design process, resulting in a professional-looking book of the highest quality. 

In all cases a detailed estimate for design is created after the initial meeting and review of the manuscript and materials, so the client has a ballpark figure for the project. 

Book Design
$50.00 per hour (this includes book interiors/ adjustments/original illustrations, images/PDF file adjustments/e-book covers, scanning, promotional materials, etc.) 
Cover Design
$250 flat fee (full cover [front, back & spine] & type layout / 2 rounds of adjustments). This fee does not cover any stock photography licensed for use on the design. 
E-Book Formatting
E-book Formatting (& e-book cover design) is available; formatting for all types of online distribution, including Amazon Kindle, BookBaby, Kobo, & more. Details & options are discussed during the introductory consultation. 
Printing Solutions
VertVolta works with a variety of printing solutions to get client books printed—regardless of whether it’s designed by the Press or self-designed. All formats & sizes are possible. Quotes are available after an initial consultation to better understand the production needs of the book in question. Samples of printed books for review are available upon request. 
Promotional Design
When authors begin their publishing journey, their book is just one component of a promotional and marketing strategy. VertVolta will design business cards, postcards, stickers, bookmarks, and more on behalf of the client. Projects are priced on a case-by-case basis during the book production process. 
Publishing Consultation

VertVolta offers clients an intensive & interactive venue for the creation of their books. We strive to make the most attractive and professional book possible for whatever the subject matter (previous topics have included a horse training manual, knife collecting book, outdoors memoir, fiction, science fiction, and more), with the author participating in every step—cover concept, font choices, etc. 

If you already have your book at hand, you may be curious to figure out what steps you can take to further your publishing journey. What are my distribution options? How do I do consignment with bookstores?  

Can I make an audio book? VertVolta is available for a consultation session to explore these questions and more with authors. $50 per hour. 

Editing Services

Once a client is working with VertVolta to design a book, we offer authors the chance to connect with freelance editors to suit their every need including copy editing, proof reading, developmental editing, line editing, etc. 

In certain cases, Vertvolta Press will offer in-house copy editing and proofing, to be determined by the complexity of the project, Vertvolta will review the manuscript and submit a quote for editing before any work begins.
