We’ve got you covered…

Mission Statement

Regardless of where and how you choose to distribute and sell your book, if it’s not professionally edited, and attractively laid out with eye catching design it’s going to get lost in the shuffle with the nearly half a million self published books that come out each year. Encircle Publications utilizes decades of traditional publishing knowledge and experience to turn the manuscripts of independent authors and small publishers into publishable attractive and professionally designed books and eBooks that are eye popping and ready to sell.

Whether it’s a professional editing service, book design, layout & conversion, printing services, marketing materials, or designing and setting up an author website/blog Encircle has you covered.

[Encircle Publications] did an outstanding job creatively to develop the cover spreads for my books – Due Diligence Secrets and Internal Controls published by Buchanan Publishing. The process from initial concept, through preliminary drafts to final design was seamless as [Encircle] provided a professional turn-key solution for my books. Additionally, the collaboration of [the Encircle team] was outstanding and made the book printing process easy.

[Encircle Publications] designed the cover of my book, WHAT ARE FRIENDS FOR? The design captures perfectly the persona of the lead character, making it a no-brainer for potential readers to judge my book by its cover and helping to boost sales in the process.

[The Encircle Publications] team did a fantastic job on the cover for my mystery, THE ILLUMINATED VINEYARD (Five Star/Gale Cengage 2011). The cover they created not only conveyed the mood and setting of the story but also appealed to the eye in a striking way. I have had more than one reader comment on how memorable the cover was. I also ordered bookmarks and postcards using the cover design and was impressed with the quality on all counts.

Encircle Publications designed a terrific cover for my debut mystery novel, NO LESS IN BLOOD. A lot of people at this year’s Printers’ Row book fair came over to ask about my novel just because that cover caught their eye. Thanks much to Devin McGuire and his talented staff, for finding such a dramatic photo and tweaking it in ways that made it perfect.

I have received so many compliments … Comments have ranged from ‘beautiful to “dynamic”, and many people have noted how quickly the color and intensity will catch the eye. Thanks to the artist for an awesome job!

Just got back from vacation–this is great! Can you please pass my thanks/compliments on to the artist? The painting really nails it.

You guys are the absolute best! I don’t just like the cover, I LOVE IT! You captured the essence of my story, precisely. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you, and thank Deirdre (ENC designer) so very much. I knew you guys were good, but now I know you’re the best! I’ll think of you and Deirdre every time I have my new book in hand. No worries, I’ll ‘think of you fondly’ as Andrew Lloyd Webber’s song goes. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

That is fabulous!!!! I consider myself very lucky to have had such wonderful covers to my books – or perhaps it’s more the impeccable taste of the team… 🙂 Many thanks from a thrilled writer
