“Monica, we get to bid on a horse book for kids!” That was my giddy call to Monica, our primary children’s book designer the moment I first heard from author Lorie List. You see, our whole team loves horses. I’ve been a certified horse freak since I was four, Erin seeks out the wild horses in Teddy Roosevelt National Park every chance she gets, and Monica rides several times each week. She was thrilled to get this book!
It’s exciting when there is such gusto and creativity fueling someone’s publishing efforts and that’s exactly what Lorie brings each and every day. Her marketing ideas are fresh, research on selling is thorough, and energy is seemingly limitless. We knew that our work would afford her credibility and present this story in its best light and that it did. We’re now a great team excitedly prepping for the second book in the series. Giddyup! ~ Tami

Lorie told us she wanted a classically beautiful children’s book design and layout. Her direction to Monica was that the design should be both playful and elegant. We were all thrilled with the outcome.

“I was so focused on writing the book and figuring out the logistics of printing, that looking for a book designer was not even on my radar. I am so thankful that I found Tamara and Monica at TLC. They became my partners in the final stages of publishing and I simply could not have done it without their encouragement and support. Sales of this book on Amazon have exceeded my wildest expectations and I know it’s because Monica’s gorgeous cover design prompts people to take a closer look.” — Lorie List
