Hi, Thank you for stopping by The Art of Communication Book Design website.
I’m Christine Hammacott. As well as being a graphic designer and book cover designer, I’m an Indie-Author myself so I’ve been where you are now and know how daunting it can feel. Rest assured that working with me will make the process not just painless but exciting as we explore ideas and get your cover perfect.
I love helping authors achieve their dream of seeing their book in print.
It’s an exciting process and to hear the ‘Wow!’ from clients when they see their cover proofs is testament that I’m doing a great job.
The self-publishing process step by step
There are various stages to the process, which I will walk you through step by step. I do everything I can make it as easy as possible, explaining as we go. I understand how precious your book is to you. It’s your baby — and as we work towards publication together I too want it to be the very best it can be.
Initially we will discuss your book to get an overall picture of exactly what you want to achieve. You will need to provide key information such as a synopsis, character and place descriptions, and the main themes of a book so that I have a clear idea of the content and where your book sits in the marketplace. Then I get creative. I will work with you to get every detail right and create a cover that works, and that of you can be hugely proud. I will advise you, but ultimately it’s your book – you are in control.
