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 books out there, what is going to make YOUR book stand out? The cover! Let me help you STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD with a well-designed cover that represents the soul of your book. 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.
Once your book is published, now is the time to get your name out there! I can provide you with effective marketing pieces, including a complete corporate identity, ads, brochures, posters, and more.

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 book covers that will not only make your book stand out and look professional but allow readers a glimpse into the soul of the book.
