EDITING

 I can edit your manuscript if required.

 

MANUSCRIPT LAYOUT

A standard picture book is generally 32 pages long with the inside title page counted as page #1. Your picture book could be longer or shorter, but the total number of pages should be divisible by 4 for printing purposes.

                                 

LAYOUT  DIAGRAM

                                                            A visual reference to see illustration placement

                                                           and the facing pages that could be text/illustration

                                                           facing pages or double-spreads.
