About The AuthorPackages Team

Whatever your needs or requirements as an author, we're here to help.

Author Packages is a small, dedicated team of designers and writers who have considerable experience in the design and indie-publishing spaces. We love that the indie-author scene is flourishing, free from the restraints of traditional publishing, but we also see the ongoing need for professional support and services.

We believe in supporting authors, old and new and helping them on their publishing journey. Too often, self-publishing is written off or simply not taken seriously, and this can often be because of the perception that some books are less professionally produced, especially when it comes to cover design. The self-publishing industry is ever-changing, however, and we know how savvy and aware emerging and veteran authors can be as to what makes a professional-looking product.

That’s where we come in. We are passionate about providing the best cover design service that we can, alongside other key author services such as formatting, hosting, and merchandise. With our dedicated, friendly approach and passion for books and design, we believe that our services offer the perfect stepping stone for those on the self-publishing path, and we can’t wait to work with you.
