“My book won two prestigious awards and became an Amazon bestseller in six countries. We have all heard the statement, ‘You can’t judge a book by its cover.’ There is some truth to that statement. However, the cover is extremely important. It is what makes a first impression on the buyer. The cover is critical to the buyer looking inside. Once the buyer gets inside, the layout of the book must be ‘reader-friendly.’ It must be easy to read and understand. Susan Shankin is superb at what she does.  She talked with me to understand the vision I was trying to communicate. She then did the design work to attract the buyer to the book.  Susan’s work was a major contributor to the success of my award-winning, best-selling book.”

“I had no idea of the complexity of effort necessary to take the content of the book I had written and turn it into a finished published product.  I am so grateful that I contacted Susan Shankin to provide the design services and production of my book.  Susan had the combination of expertise, skill, and personality to help me avoid a variety of problems.  Her cover design of the book is powerful and effective.  More importantly, Susan paid attention to my vision for how I wanted the pages laid out.  She balanced the reality of publishing constraints and my sometimes, outrageous ideas! The end result is a book that is striking both inside and out. Susan’s hard work and final touches have produced a book for which I am very proud.”
