“I’m a self-publisher. I have a great story with a beautiful cover. The content has been professionally edited and is as close to perfect as it’s going to get. Is there another way to make my print book stand out?”

Yes, absolutely.

From what I’ve observed, big publishers use standard font sets for most of the books they release.  If you’re a BIG NAME, you might get an interesting title page or headers.

Self-publishers can call on the expertise of their formatter to dress up a print book with fonts chosen just for you. But, fonts are more than a pretty face.

About Gina X. Grant

Gina X. Grant writes ingenious plotlines with twists, turns and sometimes magic. She is represented by Rosemary Stimola, the agent who also represents the Hunger Games series. Gina’s RELUCTANT REAPER trilogy is available from Simon and Schuster’s Pocket Star imprint. She lives in Toronto, Canada, just blocks from the house she grew up in. She’s married to a friendly curmudgeon from a mining town in Northern Ontario. They have one rescued hound, Storm, named for Gina’s other pen name. Storm Grant—the writer, not the hound dog—writes engaging action adventure with two heroes. Since 2007, she has published with a variety of e-publishers and more recently, self-publishes. Gina’s and Storm’s books are available at all your favorite etailers, such as Amazon, Kobo and iTunes. Visit ginaXgrant.com or stormgrant.com to find out more.
