Today we sat down with Chris Andrechek!


Chris does designs – Book designs! (cool!) at Biblioasis.

Check out Biblioasis Here.


Did you check them out? Cool? You’re back now? Hi!

This episode we talked about why book design is important – and why you need to think about it. We all judge a book by its cover even subconsciously. Chris tells us why this is important and what you can do to ensure you’re getting the best design for your buck. (Hint: It involves a traditional publisher)


We also explored that. The above thing. The self publishing thing. We looked at why it’s important and what the advantages and disadvantages of self publishing are. The occasion where the self publishing warrants the best results is when your design can hold its own as well.

Chris works in Windsor and it was great to hang out with him for the interview!
