About Highland Creek Books
Highland Creek Books is
a husband and wife team who've been involved with books and publishing,
education and illustration for decades.
Your Book Needs What We Provide
- A professional design will make your book look better,
sell better, and make a better first and lasting impression.
People do judge a book by its appearance, and we've
got yours covered.
- Copy editing prevents grammatical and structural
trainwrecks that put readers and reviewers off, never
to return. A couple of egregious mistakes in spelling, punctuation,
or style makes your book a liability rather than an asset. We'll
keep yours on the right track.
- We'll produce an interior layout that invites
readers to dive in and stay in right to the end. Typefaces,
line spacing, appropriate borders, pagination, ornamentation, and
gutter allowances all contribute to readers' experiences. We
love that stuff.
- You'll need a 13-digit ISBN barcoded on your book
to get it on Amazon, in bookstores, and in Books in Print.
(You can sell books out of your trunk without an ISBN, but that's
about all.) We'll get you one.
- Every good book deserves a good website. A
website for your book can help connect you with readers, provide
an outlet for news or experimental work, make it easy for new and
faithful readers to find your personal appearances (or help you schedule
one) and facilitate online sales.
- Prepress services including typesetting and layout for your
cover and interior is our stock in trade, but we don't have to stop there. We can help with copyediting, stock and custom photography, author portraits, and webwork. Prepress is only the beginning.
Every project is different. We'll
be happy to quote yours.
