This is your one-stop shop to turn your
manuscript into a compelling and complete

My book design services keep the independent author in mind. I’ll turn your manuscript into a fully designed and formatted book so you can publish it yourself. I have been designing book covers and interiors for independent authors since 2009, and I would love to put my design and illustration experience to work for you!

Book Cover Design Icon-02

Cover Design
I will help you create a cover that coveys your story or message to readers in an enticing way. I can format cover art you already have, or I can design the cover art for you. If you need original illustrated artwork for your book, check out examples of my illustration work here. Cover design includes imagery and text layout on the front and back covers.

Book Interior Design Icon-03

Interior Design
I will professionally format the interior of your book with fonts, images, and an attractive layout to showcase your work in the best possible way. I’ll choose interior fonts to compliment the cover for a cohesive overall look.

Book Formatting Icon-04

Formatting for Self Publishing
I will format all design work, for cover and interior, so you can send your files directly to a self-publisher such as CreateSpaceAmazon’s self-publishing arm, or IngramSpark. Once you’ve approved final edits and made final payments, I will send all of the files you need to submit for publishing.


I loved working with Tami from start to finish designing my book. As a first-time author with no experience, she led me through the process like a pro. She took my input, made it happen creatively, and then brought new ideas to the table to explore. I adore both the exterior and interior that Tami designed for "A Girls Guide to Surviving the Startup" and I welcome the chance to work with her again!

Tami was incredible to work with. From the very beginning of the process, she was in tune to what I was looking for. Her creative edge allowed for multiple designs of "Daring to Dream" both the interior and cover, all of which were vibrant and sophisticated. The hardest part of the process was choosing which design! Tami outdid herself and she was a dream to work with!
Hope Caldwell
"Daring to Dream" author,
Tami knows how to bring an author's vision to life. When I first met Tami over coffee, I knew that she would be a perfect fit to make the dreams of my book a reality. She is attentive to detail, knowledgeable about the self-publishing industry, and will genuinely care about you and your vision as the author. It is hard to put into words how talented Tami is as a designer, but I can say that she absolutely exceeded my expectations and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my book.
