If computers and technology are preventing you from publishing your novel, family history or self published book, then visit Clark & Mackay and leave the hard work to us. We have the expertise, equipment and software to make your self publishing dreams a reality.
We work with your computer files to bring your book to a reality. Whether you have used a word processor such as Microsoft Word or a desktop publishing programme such as Indesign or Publisher, we can manipulate the files to create a suitable artwork for publication.
We can work with most computer files including Microsoft Word, Excel, Publisher, Indesign, Photoshop, Coreldraw Illustrator and pdfs. If you feel unsure as to whether we can utilise the software you have used, please contact us and we will advise you on what we can do to help you produce an artwork worthy of being published.
On the other hand if you do not have computer files but handwritten manuscript and photographs, talk to our team, we can convert your copy into the book you always dreamed of publishing. We have high resolution scanners to convert your photographs and or old documents into a suitable format for printing, and we can have your manuscript digitised and converted for page layout and design.
We have a lot of clients who have supplied their own files for the text of their self published book but have found the design of the cover daunting and frustrating and end up unhappy with their efforts in creating an engaging cover themselves.
Clark & Mackay offers a cover design service to writers who feel they want a design that does their work justice. You can tell us what you envisage, supply any photographs and copy you wish to use and leave the rest to our Brisbane based design team.
Clark & Mackay can also offer you the ability to convert your manuscript or computer files to ebook format for reading on tablet and smartphone devices. We can provide both the traditional book artwork and the electronic book format, so you can reach a larger audience of readers.
We also can advise and assist with the ISBN number and barcode for your self published book.
For those authors who wish to have an accurate index, we have the software to generate an index from your files.
