Nesting Services: $300 Comfort And Protection For Your Words
***At this time, Write Duck Press is accepting submissions from authors residing in Southeast Michigan, ONLY. Watch this page for updates to this policy as they become available.***
Once you've completed the Deep Water process and are confident that your words can swim with all the strength and determination of your imagination, it's time to build a Nest to gently contain those words and give them a protected space for readers to discover them. This Nest is the interior layout design for your book.
We will arrange your words upon the page according to industry standards, and offer a format that is comfortable to read over long periods of time... time enough for readers to perhaps become so taken with the gentle waves of your words, that they don't want to emerge until the story is finished. Our focus groups have told us that Write Duck Press has developed a Nesting approach that supports that "keep swimming, keep reading" energy.
We'll design pages that are comfortable to read with plenty of white space to enhance flow. Interior designs can be created for novels, fiction collections, poetry, non-fiction, and children's books.
***If you have not had your book edited by Write Duck Press, we can still perform Nesting Services for you... but please understand that we will not make any changes to the content of your book. We will simply provide the interior design. Any content and/or editorial errors discovered after publication will remain the responsibility of the author, and the author will not hold Write Duck Press responsible, legally, or in any other way, for these errors.
