John Hughes, author of Haunting the CEO, needed help preparing his inspirational leadership story for publishing. He wanted the first printing to be a hardcover, cloth-bound and hot-stamped book. Classy.
This is from his website:
In 2010, John wrote and published Haunting the CEO, a leadership book written in story format. The book has been a top Management & Leadership seller on Amazon, and has been used by universities in Information Systems and MBA programs.
He came to me with a Word document and a dream. The following collaboration took place over a four-month period.
- Establish language and punctuation style for proofreader
- Print management
- Copyfitting to printer’s specs
- Select fonts, page layout and chapter openings
- Spotless Books logo
- Cover design
- Jacket design
- Inside design: front matter, back matter
- eBook conversion
Here’s what John said when it was done:
Beautiful! That’s what one person said about my book . . . Well, that beauty came from Barb Rowan! Barb designed the cover and the inside aesthetics and layout. Want beautiful results your customers will love? Call Barb Rowan!
