Design that helps your book stand out
Publishing a book has never been easier! It is no longer necessary to go through a formal publisher to become a published author. So with the explosion of self-published books out there, what is going to make YOUR book stand out? The design! Let me help you STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD with a well-designed book that looks just as professional as any book published by a large publishing house. From one book lover to another, let’s work together to make sure your book gets the attention it deserves!
I guarantee your book pops off the shelf with attention-grabbing, visually appealing designs that not only stand out, but best represent the content. Make sure your book’s cover looks as good as its insides!
I’ll make sure your children’s picture book is well designed and fun, inside and out! I can be part of as much of the process as you prefer – from choosing and working with illustrators to deciding on fonts and layout.
Do you have a book that you need typeset? I can typeset your book in a easily readable, professional manner that will make reading your book a pleasure.

About the Virtual Paintbrush
I am a designer who loves books as much as you do.
When you write a book, you put yourself into it. The last thing you want is for people to overlook your book because of bad design. Everyone judges books by their covers, and here at the Virtual Paintbrush, I understand how to design books that will not only stand out and look professional but allow readers a glimpse into the soul of the book.
My name is Shanie Cooper, and I am a graphic designer with over 18 years of experience in the industry, both teaching and designing. I have serviced clients all over the world, and have worked with businesses, corporations, self-published authors, and publishers. I have worked with Urim Publications, Flashlight Press, Menucha Publishers, Judaica Press, Mosaica Press, Israel Bookshop, Apples and Honey Press, Sweetberry Books, and many self-published authors just like you. I look forward to working together!
