What we specialise in:

What we will do:

  1. First, we meet with you to review your manuscript and discuss the services you want to use.

  2. Then we provide a detailed quote for production. These services can include:

    • Structural editing, copy and/or line editing.​

    • Proofreading the manuscript for spelling and punctuation errors.

    • Typesetting (interior formatting) of the manuscript for printed books and eBooks.

    • Provide suggestions for additional sections and identify any copyright issues.

    • Wraparound cover design (for printed books) and cover page for eBooks.

    • Source ISBNs and register book(s) with the National Library Prepublication Data Service (replaces CiP).

    • Complete the copyright information page.

    • Assist you with creating an IngramSpark account for worldwide selling and distribution (online only).

    • Source printing quotes.

    • Provide launch and marketing guidance, including preparation of media releases and library pitches.

    • Provide guidance with setting up and maintaining a social media presence.

    • Advertise your new release through our social media channels and on our website.

  3. Once you are happy with the services to be provided and the quote, we will send you an agreement to sign which includes a detailed breakdown of stages (milestones) and when each payment is due. You will only pay when you have received, reviewed and approved a stage.

Setting expectations:

  1. Publishing a book is an expensive business. It pays to do your research and ask other authors about costs. Set yourself a budget beforehand for each aspect of publishing you require.

  2. If we feel a manuscript is not yet ready for publication, we will advise you of ways to improve it. Polishing your work before formal editing makes more sense and it keeps costs down.

  3. We are transparent about all our costs and services, which is why we provide detailed breakdowns of what will be involved in publishing your book. Please bear in mind we include one review at the end of each stage but subsequent reviews may incur additional fees. We will always alert you if extra work or reviews are needed.

  4. Publishing a book takes time. Most mainstream publishers have a one to two-year turnaround. We will endeavour to work within your desired timescales but if we feel a deadline is unrealistic, we will say so and aim to find a mutually agreeable alternative.
