Kate Weisel book production

Book Production

I've had a hand in the production of hundreds of books over the years—many with authors publishing their own book. I also work happily with editors. I have acted as typesetter on all these books, either working with the author or an editor. I send digital files to a printer or Print on Demand anywhere.
I can also build your eBook/ePub. If you have a book project you'd like to discuss, please contact me.
Stack of books typeset by Kate Weisel
Many of the books are available at bookstores, at Amazon or other online venues, as well as the author's online e-store (where they make the most royalties, and where I link to mostly).
