For those of you with recently published (as in the last five years) middle grade books (hardcover or paperback), I was wondering if you could answer a couple quick questions for me:

1) Where are the page numbers? Top? Bottom? Centered? Left justified? Right justified?

2) Does your book include your author name and title in the header? If so, where is it located? Centered? Left justified? Right justified?

 :thanks2

Thanks, Jan!

Anyone else? The books don't have to be from 2014. Anything from the past five years should work.

Thanks!

Author name isn't in header.

Page number is bottom, center.

Thanks, Car. That's the layout I've been seeing more and more frequently in recent years.
