We are your book publisher so it is our job to make it as easy as possible for you to get your book published. Get the publishing process started by taking care of the following easy steps and we will take it from there:
Manuscripts - We prefer to receive your manuscript in a Word file, but WordPerfect, Works, and others are all OK. We cannot accept manuscripts in Adobe (.pdf) format. Don't worry about how your manuscript is formatted in terms of spacing, margins, page breaks, copyright page, table of contents (if you want one), etc. We will handle everything as long as we can understand your text. Your manuscript text should be publication ready as far as what it says; however, you will have an opportunity to review the formatted text print file and request changes prior to actual publication. If you think your manuscript may need a thorough editing before publication, please consider our copyedit service. Click the green Copyedit button at the top for more information. We can also accept printed manuscripts if you do not have it in a computer file, however, there is an extra fee for scanning. It must be typed in a non-cursive font similar to what you see here so our scanners can read it.
The Order Form - We must have a complete mailing address, email address and Social Security Number. These are essential for staying in contact with you, sending you royalty payments and reporting income to the IRS. The Book Description is very important. This is displayed on websites selling your book. The other items are related to the formatting and pricing of your book. Most are optional, so if they are left blank it wonít delay our processing. If something isnít clear or if you just plain donít particularly care about an item, leave it blank and we will contact you for clarification if needed.
Text Style Ė The standard text style we use is what is most commonly used in the publishing industry. That means we use a single space between sentences, indent paragraphs three tenths of an inch, justify text both left and right, and let paragraphs split between pages. Our texts do not have blank lines between every paragraph unless the author requires it. If there are blank lines between every paragraph they would not be indented. On our order form you can specify a particular font and size if you wish and we will do our best to use it or something similar. If you donít indicate one we will use the one we think is most common and easiest to read when printed Ė Times New Roman size 11. Right click here and then "save as" if you want to download an Adobe file showing some examples of the most common fonts used in printed books.
Formatting - We accomplish all text formatting required to get your raw material into a professional, pleasing book format. This includes any special format requirements you indicated in the Order Form. The format of the manuscript you send us is not important as long as we can understand it. Concentrate on what the text says, spelling, grammar, etc., and it will be fine.
Cover - The final building block used to publish your book is the cover. You can use one of our cover templates, supply your own finished cover image, or we can do quite a lot of custom cover work (free) but we donít do creative graphic art. That means you could provide us a jpg image to use for the background of the front, back and spine of the cover, ask for text effects for the title and other text, supply an author photo for the back cover, etc. You canít tell us verbally to create artwork in the sense of drawing things but we can do pretty much anything else to customize a cover to your desire. We also have a source where we can obtain images to use for cover backgrounds so if you tell us what you might like we can probably find something suitable. If you need us to scan a picture or drawing for the cover we can do that as well. Click the covers tab above to see our assortment of cover templates.
When we receive your submission we will open your manuscript file and give it a quick once over to make sure it is understandable and was not scrambled somehow in transmission. If everything looks OK, we will send you an email letting you know that we have it and will start work on publishing your book.
After the preparation work is done we will create a proof file of the text and another of the cover. We quality check the files and then email them to you for review.
You should review the files carefully. Check the cover, copyright notice, table of contents, general page format, format of the beginning of chapters, one last check for spelling or grammar if desired, etc. Let us know if something needs to be changed, even if you now want it formatted differently than you said on your Order Form. We want you to be completely satisfied with our book publishing process.
If you have changes, we will make them, recreate the files and email them to you again for review.
When you tell us your book is ready we will submit everything to the printer for set-up. Set-up takes approximately 5 days. When it is complete we will notify you that your book is available for sale and provide you a special form for ordering books at the author discount price.
