Uploading Book Files * Manuscript Clean Up * Editing/Proofreading * Composite Images * Consulting
Answer: YES. Many independent publishers/authors/small publishing companies that we work with prefer to upload the completed files to the account they’ve set up with those companies. If you require assistance we absolutely can be of service. We have no part in the royalties. You always retain the royalties. We are here to serve you.
Answer: YES. You are not alone. Many authors, even editors, struggle with the writing and “formatting” tools in Microsoft Word such as:
You “type up” your manuscript text. We take care of most of the clean up for you at no charge when we have a design agreement with you for the book formatting. Call us to discuss the options.
Answer: YES. Before our graphic design formatting begins, your manuscript must be well-written, free of text errors. We will read a couple chapters to determine if the manuscript needs some finishing work (example, typos, confusing formatting), for which we will notify you. You then have the choice of enlisting our services to “fix” the manuscript issues, or we return your manuscript until it’s final, “error free” and ready for formatting. Text corrections after our graphic designers start formatting can result in additional fees.
Answer: YES. Normally you will provide images (which you have “permission” to use) in a high-resolution jpg format. The fee for composite work is based on our regular hourly fee.
Answer: YES. We are happy to answer basic questions you may have before signing a contract with us. With a design agreement with us to format your book, ALL CONSULTING IS FREE. If you want to contract with us for CONSULTING ONLY then we will discuss the fee and payment options. We are happy to make your publishing experience as smooth as possible.
