Custom Interior ($349)—perfect for fiction and non-fiction layouts—allows you to mix and match from a selection of design styles and include up to 10 interior images (additional images, up to 30, available for purchase) to create a distinct interior. With Simple Interior ($249), you select from 10 pre-designed interior templates, which cannot be altered.
No, while Custom Interior is appropriate for formatting young adult books, it is not intended to format children's books. Children's books require complex formatting, where each page is uniquely designed with specialized background colors and typography.
While we cannot duplicate the exact interior design of another title, you can provide examples of interior layouts you like to help guide your book's design.
