Creation of e-books
Are you experiencing difficulties creating an e-book? Are you having trouble making an eBook from your InDesign, Scrivener, or Word document? I’ll guide you to an ePub3 for Kobo Writing Life, or a Kindle eBook for Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing.
Keep in mind that e-books usually don’t have page numbers, headers, or footers and that commonly fonts and font sizes are determined by e-reader users.
A flow layout for novels and a fixed layout for books with many images are possible. A few images are no problem, but a book with dozens of images e-book will be more expensive.
For a comprehensive overview of elements of an e-book that make the book look professional, read the article What makes an e-book professional? Wat maakt een e-boek professioneel?
Antoni works quickly and accurately. If he encounters a problem for which a solution is not immediately available, he will look for a way to solve the problem. I'm glad he overhauled my ebooks and very pleased with the results.

Are you having problems publishing your e-book? Filling out the forms at Kobo Writing Life or Kindle Direct Publishing can become an endless exercise without proper preparation:
- Do you have a cover of the right quality?
- Is your cover the right size?
- Which categories should you choose?
- Do you have to work with those age groups?
- What is a good blurb?
I’ll help you find the right material and guide you in the publishing process. If you want, I can also take over the whole process for you.
The e-book looks very good! Chapeau! Thank you very much for all your efforts. You have delivered quality, even though it must have cost you a lot of effort.

Design of book interiors
The layout of the inside of a book is painstaking and patient work. Organizing your book’s interior yourself can be a frustrating affair if you don’t have the tools to do it professionally.
I can help you by formatting your book in InDesign for a printer or a publishing platform. Send in your text and indicate your preferences and I will provide you with a proof. After one or more rounds of corrections, you will receive a print-ready PDF, which you only need to deliver to your printer or publishing platform.
It is a pleasure to work with Antoni! He takes you through the process of preparing for printing and gives you advice on the various choices available. For me it was a godsend that Antoni could not only take care of the book's interior, but also wanted to make some adjustments to the design of the cover.

Design of book covers
Book covers always need special attention. The three-millimeter bleed is manageable, but how do you determine the spine thickness? How do you design a spine that always fits? How do you deliver a cover for a publishing platform? For Amazon in US sizes? Or in metric millimeters for European platforms and printers?
I can help by integrating all elements of your cover in InDesign optimally. Adjustments to the dimensions or spine thickness are no problem. I provide a cover file that is accepted by the printer or publishing platform without any problems. You will receive a digital proof to check if everything is to your satisfaction. Any corrections afterward are included in the price.
Antoni has taken on the production of the anthology under his publisher imprint io, which he also uses to publish his own books. He also designed the interior and cover.
