Our Services

At L&S we offer a wide range of services. Below is a list of our services with their prices. We offer multiple packages to fit your needs or you can order a la carte. If you have any questions about our services or would like a custom quote please contact support@lightandsoundgraphics.com. Thank you.

Book Formatting

eBook formatting:

Having a quality professional looking eBook is important in today’s publishing world. Readers expect eBooks to have formatting that allows for ease of reading and looks like a bestseller. At L&S we will go above and beyond to make sure that your book is professional and fits the genre that it’s in.

Final Formats: ePub, mobi (Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Smashwords, iBooks, etc.)

Price: $150

For books with more than two elements (images, tables, chart, etc) there is an additional $2 charge per element.

What we need from you: A Word doc of your manuscript, your cover art (unless we are doing it), title, author name, your book’s genre, and your book’s description.

Print Book Formatting (any trim size):

Print editions are often overlooked by indie authors, but they shouldn’t be. Print is still the largest segment of book sales in the US. The interior of a print book needs to look good and needs to make it easy for readers to read the book. At L&S we will provide you with a print layout that allows for ease of reading and also looks like it came from a major press.

Final Formats: PDF (ready to be uploaded to Createspace or other POD services)

Price: $150

For books with more than two elements (images, tables, chart, etc) there is an additional $2 charge per element.

What we need from you: A Word doc of your manuscript, your cover art (unless we are doing it), title, author name, your book’s genre, and your book’s description.

 

Cover Design

Your cover will be one of the most powerful sales tools that you’ll have at your disposal. It is the first thing that potential readers see when they are shopping. From that cover they are going to decide if they want to learn more about your book. Meaning that no matter how great of blurb you write, how competitively priced or how amazing your book is, if your cover doesn’t connect with the reader, none of that will matter. We live in a day and age when many book buyers are buying online. Expansive book shelves lined with books have been replaced by digital pages with rows and rows of thumbnail images. Your book’s cover needs to stand out on those pages and say to readers, “click me, I’m a great read”. Once they click on that thumbnail the larger version of the cover needs to say the same thing. If your book is on a bookshelf the cover needs to entice the reader to pick it off of the shelf, read the back and maybe get them to sit in one of those comfy arm chairs book stores have and thumb through the pages for a few minutes.

At L&S we make sure your book’s cover jumps off of the webpage and shelf telling readers to check it out. We will make sure that your cover tells the reader a story of what your book is about, and what they can expect. By making sure your cover art is not only targeted, but eye catching and professional you will be able to take full advantage of those crucial moments.

 

Custom Cover Design

At L&S we have several options for cover art. One is our custom cover design. With this option we will talk with you about your book and design a cover tailored to your book.

Custom eBook Cover:

With our Custom eBook Cover you’ll get a cover that will make your book shine on store’s websites. This cover is what the front cover of your print book will be as well.

Final Format: JPG

Price: $250

Custom Print and eBook Cover:

With this service you get a custom front cover that is catered specifically to your book that will work for both print and e-editions. We also design your book’s often over looked spine art and back cover. We believe that your spine and back cover should speak just as confidently as your front cover.

Final Formats: JPG, PDF (ready to be uploaded to Createspace or other POD services)

Price: $300

Pre-made Covers (coming soon)

Pre-made covers can be an economical solution to cover art. Our pre-made covers are just as professional and powerful as our custom covers with the caveat that while they are designed to make readers feel certain emotions and tell them what genre a book is written in, these covers are not custom tailored to your book. When you order one of our pre-made covers we will change any of the text on the cover and also add your publishers logo if you’d like. Once a pre-made cover is purchased that cover will no longer be available for sale. Pre-made book covers are a fast and economical way to get your book to market right away. Please look through our selection to find one that works for your project. Keep in mind that our available covers change often so be sure to check  our gallery regularly to see new covers.

Final Formats: JPG, PDF (ready to be uploaded to Createspace or other POD services)

Writing Services

After readers look at your book’s cover the next thing they see is your book’s description (more commonly known as your book’s blurb) and in many cases your author bio. Blurbs are one of the most powerful and difficult things in book selling. Writing blurbs that don’t give away your story or plot can be trying. The same can be said for your author bio. Writing bio’s that are targeted to your book and your readers is key to helping you sell more books. At L&S we offer services were we will talk to you about you and/or your book and write your blurb and/or your author bio for you.

Book Blurb price: $25

Author Bio price: $50
