A couple of years ago Joel Friedlander of The Book Designer website launched Book Design Templates, a service dedicated to providing professionally designed book templates for indie authors and small publishers who prefer to use MS Word. Friedlander and his team set out to push the everyday word processing application to its limit in an effort to create a series flexible and professional book templates. Book Design Templates has now established itself as one of the top go-to websites for affordable book templates. The templates are suitable for most self-publishing platforms.
This week Book Design Templates announced an agreement with Ingram Content Group and its self-publishing platform IngramSpark that will enable publishers to more easily, professionally, and affordably format industry-standard books for publishing.
