Self-publishing requires calmness, patience and expertise. The schedule discussed below begins after the author is ready to send the manuscript to the editor. If you need expert help we are there to assist you. Except for Copy and Line Editing and Book Cover Design, which are included for your information only, we offer all others services listed below. Please fill up the contact form so that we can get back to you.
Copy and Line Editing
Copy and Line Editing is a sentence-by-sentence review of basic mechanics: spelling, grammar, punctuation, and tense, word choice, phrasing, dialogue, and overall consistency. We do not offer Copy and Line Editing Services.
It is the job of the proofreader to look for spelling errors, typos, layout problems, etc. which may have been overlooked by the editor. No changes to content or style is made.
Proofreading services can take upwards of fifteen days. We read the manuscript at least three times before we part with it. We therefore request you to give us sufficient time to proofread your manuscript to avoid embarrassing and costly errors.
We use Book Design Templates for which we hold a Commercial Use License. We create beautiful, industry-standard print interiors ready for you to upload on KDP Amazon, Lightning Source, and Ingram. At present, we create Kindle e-books with fixed layout using Kindle Create. EPub and Kindle e-books, with reflowable layout, can also be created on request, using Calibre e-book software. PDFs are created using Adobe Acrobat DC.
Book Cover Design
A book cover forms an integral part of the self-publishing schedule. A well-designed cover can attract those who are just skimming their Kindle or iPad for the latest e-books in the market. Please do not skimp on this. For those on a budget Amazon KDPs Cover Creator allows you to design an e-book and paperback cover free of charge. We do not offer book cover design services.
Website design depends upon the choice of theme, number of pages requested and whether you intend having a WooCommerce shop. It can take at least two months to design the same.
We have given above a brief outline of the self-publishing schedule, the services we offer, the work involved and the time frame for completion of service. We look forward to serving you. Please fill up the contact form so that we can get back to you.
