“Our most comprehensive service”
We take your manuscript and submit it for our full editorial facilities, which include editing/proofreading, formatting, customer cover design, layout and completion to your satisfaction.
Our editors, proofreaders and book designers are highly skilled, well-respected professionals who will maintain one-to-one contact with you throughout the preparation of your book. This way you are always kept up-to-date with your book’s preparation, which YOU control.
EDITING AND PROOFREADING
Initially, we will obtain an overview of your manuscript to establish the best way to proceed. In addition to a comprehensive scrutiny of your work, the editorial process will include vital checks on factual information and potential libel or copyright issues.
Our editorial service will include checks/corrections on spelling and grammar, consistency, paragraphing, syntax, formatting and British/American spelling.
Our editing will not include changes to the plot/storyline. Whenever an edit is requested, a proofread is also carried out to ensure that any additional errors are found.
The electronic file for your book is formatted so that it resembles a finished book. At this stage, this is your chance to check the proofs carefully. You are allowed 2 edits and have 7 days to submit any changes or corrections. Please note that we cannot accept large insertions of new text at this stage without incurring an extra charge.
Most books have a contents’ section, so if you have any specific requirements regarding this, please let us know at the beginning of the publication process.
BACK COVER DESCRIPTION
The back cover description is the advertisement that sells the book to bookshops and reviewers, as well as potential readers. This should be around 100-200 words and should be concise and instructive without giving too much away. We will be able to advise you on what is required to best persuade potential readers to buy your book with a compelling description.
We custom design ALL our book covers with the author who will have one-to-one contact with the cover designer. The outcome of this will be the creation of a stunning, high-quality, four-colour cover for your book to complement its content.
The EPS includes trade paperback/hardback and e-book formatting of your manuscript, ISBN numbers and bar codes, and 25 copies sent to you. You will receive one year of hosting on our printer’s database, which will be renewed on an annual basis at your request. We will submit your book to the Copyrights Agency and Legal Deposit Libraries. We can also offer you your completed book on a DVD when the book is sent to print, so that you have a copy before you receive your proof copy.
We also recommend you purchase our Web Service, so that you and your book will have your own website.
