  • This site uses Flash Player 10 and HTML5 Audio
  • Join the robots as they talk with an expert on what goes into laying out your book. John McCarthy walks us through the pitfalls of getting the interior of a print project just right.

    Some further insight on the subject can be found in this interview with Jane Friedman: http://www.thebookdesigner.com/2014/06/how-much-attention-should-you-pay-to-book-design/

    You can reach him at SurfsideCity@gmail.com to do your POD layout for a very reasonable sum. Remember, don't be that guy. Make your book look like a pro did it.

    Terry apologizes for the quality of his audio. Google didn't want to let him in and he was on a phone. The issue has been resolved.

    Terry also recommended Deposit Photos as an inexpensive place to get stock images. They can be found at http://depositphotos.com.
