If you let us know at the beginning of a book project that you would also like an ebook created, it is less expensive if we know up front. We use the latest program technology so your ebook will look great on all the readers.
Many self-publishers are starting with an ebook and then doing print copies once the ebook sells. If you want just an ebook made of your manuscript, we can create a professional looking interior (and/or cover) and provide you files for uploading to Amazon, B&N, or any other site.
To do what you love takes courage. Katherine does what she loves. That is why she is changing our world.
I have repeatedly experienced with Katherine what this means to you and I. It is simply this: Katherine Lloyd will be caring, responsible, communicative, enthusiastic, and brilliant. I have faith that any project she takes on—for us or anyone else—will be completed with grace and true professionalism, as exemplified by the exceptional work she has done for us already. Thank you, Katherine.
—Ken Streater, author of The Gift of Courage
Katherine Lloyd has been a pleasure to work with! She is prompt, professional, and has been very accommodating to our varying production schedules. Her first project with us was our flagship book, Uncovering the Logic of English. She did an amazing job and certainly contributed to the book winning five publishing awards! Katherine went on to design and set our first curriculum set and many of the ancillary products. Essentials required a lot of creative and detailed layout solutions; the end products speak for themselves and her work.

The DESK was privileged to work with author Ken Streater and Russ at Studio Absolute (who did the beautiful cover) to design the interior for The Gift of Courage (and the ebooks as well). You can download a sample of Ken’s ebook here (a link is provided at the end of the sample in case you want to purchase this wonderful book).
Pedia Learning / Logic of English started off with their flagship book, Understanding the Logic of English. The DESK designed and typeset that interior, then went on to format the interiors of their first curriculum series (a 500-plus-page Teacher’s Guide and 2 Student workbook variations), game and handwriting workbooks, quick reference fold-outs, flash cards, and more. Below are samples of some of these products. If interested, more info at: http://www.logicofenglish.com/products

Using a program called Finale, The DESK can create sheet music from your hand-written version. Click a thumbnail to see a sample of one page of handwritten music next to the transcribed version. The DESK notated the entire 17-page piece along with several other music pieces.
Although The DESK has concentrated on books, we have recently started designing and creating basic websites. This website is a great example.
