HOW IT WORKS
We ask to see your manuscript in its entirety before we give you a quote for the provision of print-ready PDFs. These will be Amazon-spec compatible, which means you can either load your PDFs to Amazon’s CreateSpace e-pub programme and publish via that platform OR you can send the PDFs to a printer to get copies of your book produced. (We offer Amazon Upload and Print Management Services – see our Publishing page for details.)
We then ask you to fill-in a Design Feedback Form which will give us an idea of the type of book you are envisaging. Using this as a basis for a sample chapter, our design team will then look at all the elements in your manuscript that need to be incorporated into the design: titles, running headers, the Table of Contents, pagination, images, graphs, etc. We then provide you with a PDF Sample Chapter with our suggestions for fonts size and style, page size and margins, suggested layout etc.
You then have the opportunity to feedback to us on what you like or don’t like and we adjust the design accordingly. When you are happy with the design and layout, we ask you to ‘sign-off’ the sample chapter and our design team work-up the whole book based on the decisions made on the Sample Chapter.
We go through a similar process with the book cover.
