SPS – £1,000
“By no means just standard”
You provide the fully-edited and proofread manuscript, which is then formatted by us for printing. The condition of the document you submit will be exactly that which is printed by us and supplied to you on completion. We cannot take responsibility for any editing or proofing errors. However, you will receive a sample copy of your book to enable you to check for printing errors before the book is released.
If you do require editorial, proofreading or a cover design, you may of course purchase these facilities separately. Please contact us for details. A book that needs editing, but not a fully designed cover (or vice-versa) will be £1,100.
You will also provide a high-quality cover design. We can scan this, or you can email it to us if it is scanned at a print quality of at least 600 dpi. When designing the cover, please remember that the dimensions must conform exactly to the chosen trim size of the book and must be fitted to the appropriate template that we will supply to you. We will advise you on this.
WHAT THE SPS INCLUDES
The SPS includes trade paperback/hardback and e-book formatting of your manuscript, ISBN numbers and bar codes and 25 copies sent to you as part of the service. You will receive one year of hosting on our printer's database. This will be renewed on an annual basis at your request. We will submit your book to the Copyrights Agency and Legal Deposit Libraries. We also offer you your completed book on a CD 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.
