If you are a self-publishing or small press author who wants control over your book cover and promotional material, we want to work with you. Today more authors than ever are taking advantage of print-on-demand technology and the Internet to publish their own works. Print-on-demand companies make it affordable to print in small quantities and often offer a mailing service as well. By setting up their own web sites and linking to internet sites like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and eBay, authors of all genres are finding a market for their work.

At Valentine Design we can design your book, web site, and promotional materials for maximum impact and a coordinated look that is both attractive and memorable. For the book at left, we provided a promotional poster, postcard, business card, book cover, web site and author's blog, images and copy for sales and review web sites, invoice and order form, all for less than the cost of a cover alone at most P.O.D. publishers—without the "cookie-cutter" look. Take a look inside some of our books:

Scrapbook/Memoir for Lynn Loscutoff and her husband, Boston Celtics legend Jim Loscutoff


Art and tourism reference book on public sculpture in Boston.


Exhibition book for art association


Market research shows that one of the greatest factors in book purchase is an attractive cover and layout. Many of the printing companies offer this service but authors have very little control over the quality of the work done without incurring exorbitant extra costs. Valentine Design specializes in manuscript preparation for authors. We can review your manuscript, advise on design and format, assist in finding a printer you can work with, and design a cover and layout that will enhance your work.

Whether it is a novel, a family genealogical history, a technical or creative treatise, we work with you to keep costs down and quality high. If you are considering self-publication, we can make you look like a professional - at a cost you can afford.
