The Publishing Process
As soon as we decide to publish your book we begin marketing and selling activities. Once it is published then we increase the sales activities for your book. We can help you with book review and features, author interviews and public events such as book signings. We also help to build an online web presence, offer email campaigns, negotiate with booksellers and distributors, can produce flyers and posters, press releases.
It is essential that your work is proofread and copy edited before going to print. Our industry professionals from the sFEP (Society of Proofreaders) will thoroughly check your work for spelling, grammar and punctuation.
For fiction this involves an overview of the book such as the structure and narrative pacing to character development and general style. For non fiction work this looking at illustrations, appendices, bibliography, notes and index.
Designers will help you to create a front cover and interior of your book. A visually appealing front cover is imperative to attracting interest. People do judge a book by their front cover so give your work the best chances of success. The interior look and feel will also be designed before the book goes to print. You can choose from our set page design or another design to suit your preferences.
This is a highly technical area involving managing the physical aspects of typesetting, printing and binding. Choose which format you want to publish to, e.g. hardback, paperback or an E-book. You can decide on the size of the print run or choose Print On Demand (POD) services.
