“Galen Garwood is an artist who possesses a rare combination of editing skills, technical savvy, and knowledge about POD publishing. Galen used his many talents to design the cover of my book, format the text, and upload the completed project to the POD publisher. He helped me when I first published my book, when I revised it, and again when I published the Spanish translation. I’m sure his expertise and artistry have contributed to the popularity of my book. “ Peggy Pace, Author of Lifespan Integration

The Process: How we get your book into the eyes of the world:
Once we have your file documents, we’ll begin a dialogue as to what you’d like.
Is your book already edited and ready to go? Once it is–and we can help you there– we’ll send you a PDF draft of the interior content for you to proof. We’ll send you a cover PDF with a variety of samples from which you can choose your favorite. Once you greenlight both interior and cover, the files will be converted for printing.
We can prepare your files for offset printing and send them to the printer of your choice. A number of our book projects have been printed in Thailand where I keep residence then shipped to a specific location.
Today, we work closely with several US POD publication providers. What is POD? Print-On-Demand is an efficient and inexpensive way to get your book quickly listed, and into global distribution with Amazon.com, Barns & Noble, Powell’s Books, etc.
“Working with Galen on Strait Art: An Anthology of Exhibitions from the Upper Left-Hand Corner was a wonderful experience! During the nearly yearlong process of his involvement on this complicated project, Galen was consistently responsive and creative within a challenging design circumstance of the 275-page, lavishly illustrated book. While respecting the late author’s original design (that Galen had to build back up from scratch due to technical issues not of his doing), he made improvements with sensitivity and respect while honoring the original aesthetic. Galen’s patience is legendary: throughout the process, the many miles and hours between us were never an issue in getting the work done.” Kathleen Moles, editor
