Since opening our new office in Zanesville, Ohio, we’ve had great experiences meeting and working with authors in Appalachia.
We recently had the pleasure of producing Katherine Mitzel’s second book, Herm’s County. This mystery story takes you through the twists and turns that unravel a small Ohio town when a local boy goes missing.
Find a copy of Herm’s County here, or ask for it at your favorite bookstore.
Katherine had already worked with an editor prior to bringing her manuscript to us, and so we got right to work on the interior design of her book. We created a custom interior for her book that is aesthetically pleasing, as well as easy-to-read.
As soon as the interior of the book was finished, our proofreader read through the book in its entirety, catching any last-minute mistakes before the book headed to print. As soon as the interior was complete, we created an e-book version of the book, readable across all major e-book platforms.
Katherine provided her own artwork for the cover, and our cover designer chose bold, simple typography to complement the painting.
In addition to book design services, Columbus Publishing Lab also created a simple author website for Katherine, where she can showcase both of her books.
Upon completion of the production process, Herm’s County was evaluated for inclusion under our Boyle & Dalton imprint, and ultimately accepted. Learn more about Boyle & Dalton here.
Along every step of the production process, Katherine had a direct contact at Columbus Publishing Lab to answer her questions, provide her with updates, or give publishing support.
