Customise your page with a beautiful background that sets the scene. Showcase your book and author brand as a cohesive streamlined whole.

Managed setup and ongoing management included

Custom made graphics

We can make professional and personal graphics for you

Included in your Emerge subscription, we can create graphics to personalise your Emerge page for you. We can use graphics from your books and produce new branding assets for you.
