General Terms

These terms are provided just to set some expectations between myself and the client, and they will be added to or clarified as necessary over time. These are not all the terms we will come to when you contract me for your project, only a starting point that you may find useful before you even contact me.

I reserve the right to share the cover or excerpts of the project I create for you on social media, on my website, and for my portfolio generally. This includes covers and mock-ups not ultimately selected.

The front matter for all books (print and ebook) will include at minimum, unless otherwise discussed with the client:

  • Half title page
  • Copyright page
  • Title page
  • Table of Contents

All other sections of the front matter and back matter are optional and at no extra charge (only normal hourly rate).
