A WARNING ABOUT LETTING YOUR PUBLISHER DESIGN YOUR BOOK: Many print on demand publishers and publishing service providers now claim ownership of the author’s files – including interior formatting/design (what they call the “production files”) – even though authors paid THEM for those services. We call this a “forced marriage” because it makes it almost impossible for an author to move to another publisher or printer someday, even if they are unhappy with their current publisher. We strongly recommend NOT paying a publisher to design your book. If you use the service below, YOU will own all rights to your cover.

NOTE: authors ALWAYS own all rights to their files, and so do non-BookLocker authors who order these à la carte services! 🙂
