Little Steps Publishing

When you publish with Little Steps, our design team will give your book a professional look and feel with a beautiful cover design and unique interior layout.


Our design department will create a custom interior for your book. This interior will include chapter titles, headings, page numbers and other typesetting details. The design team will also insert images/tables/formulae and conduct minimal manuscript clean up.

To ensure that any images and/or tables you submit to us come out clear and crisp in your book, please follow these requirements:

— Submitted separately from your manuscript as a TIFF (.tif) file format
— CMYK colorspace
— 300-dpi resolution

Keep in mind that all books need a 5mm bleed area (this is trimmed off later in the printing process) and that the illustrator should compensate for this.

After the layout is complete, you will be sent the first proofs of your book to approve.


The appeal of your book cover is very important as it is the first thing that readers see in bookstores or online. Our design team will present you with cover concepts that will maximise your books potential in the marketplace.

After our design team incorporates any changes to the cover design, per your request, you will then receive the final cover image as a PDF to approve before your book is sent to print.
