Get YOUR BOOK Smooved & Improoved. 

You’ve written your masterpiece, now let Smoove make it look the part. Your self-published book can look and feel as professional as a bestseller, with none of the telltale markers of self-publishing.

As a full-service creative agency, Smoove offers a range of author services and products with a custom-crafted approach to book and promotional material design. All book design options include personal consultation, "no surprises" package pricing, multiple proofs, and the option of ongoing Smoove marketing support, from bookmarks and banners to social media and e-mail marketing, and even your own author website.

"My publisher gave me just seven days to come up with a design for my wartime book cover. Working with Smoove was easy, because they brought their own creative genius to the table, but also listened to my suggestions. The woman's eyes reference the title and the theme of photographic interpretation; and the iconic Lancaster bomber appeals to male readers. The colour scheme Smoove chose was fresh yet vintage. I am thrilled with the look and feel of my design. Technically, it was perfect and my publisher sent it straight to print."

Book Interior Pages

Books that are more design-intensive, and books with more images, are more time-consuming because of the additional time required for layout and image preparation.
