Editing & Proofreading

We offer editing and proofreading services with fast turnaround times at reasonable prices. Our editing rates are based on word count, so you can work out the cost of having your manuscript edited before proceeding.

• Correction of grammar, misspelled/misused words, punctuation, syntax, tense and point of view.
• We make suggestions where we see opportunity for improvement in sentence structure and word choice, order of layout and presentation of data.

Book Design & Typesetting

Good book layout is more than just typing your manuscript in Word and saving it in PDF format for your printer. Choosing the right fonts, line spacing, kerning, margins, bleeds, page numbering, and getting headers and footers to work properly can be problem areas for the self-published author.

Do you have lots of images in your book, bullet lists, info boxes, footnotes, fancy page decorations or other formatting requirements? Let us take care of your book layout for professional, striking results.

Customised Cover Design

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but we all know the cover is often the first thing a reader sees before deciding to pick it up. Whether you supply images for your cover, or we find them for you, we will create an elegant or dynamic, eye-catching cover design. We also have illustrators at hand who can produce amazing, unique artwork when stock photos just won’t do.

No templates! We create all our designs from scratch, ensuring you have a truly unique cover for your book. See examples here.

eBook Publishing

Due to the growing popularity of eBook readers such as the Kindle, Nook, Kobo and iPad, eBook sales have begun to exceed paperback sales around the world. Your novel or non-fiction book can join in this revolution with our eBook conversion services.

We will provide fully tested eBook files in ePub (Nook, Kobo, iPad) and .mobi (Kindle) formats, as well as resized cover images to be used as thumbnails in the various eBook online stores. We can also produce fixed format ebooks for Kindle and iBooks (perfect for kids’ books, comics, cookbooks, etc). We’ll even upload them to iTunes for you if you don’t have access to a Mac and iTunesProducer.

Promotional Bookmarks/Bookstubs, Postcards & Posters

Receive professionally designed full-colour promotional materials, ready for your favourite printer, or we can arrange printing for you. Using your book’s cover art and sales information, this printed material will be ready to hand out to potential readers, fans and buyers.

• Distribute your promotional materials at industry events such as book fairs, markets, writers festivals and trade shows
• Use them in your direct mail campaigns
• Include them with any merchandise you give away or sell in person

Custom WordPress Author Websites

Self-published authors need a platform – an online home – where they can promote and sell their books. While seeing your book on the shelves of your favourite bookstore is a thrill all authors should enjoy, the reality is more readers are looking online to discover and buy new titles.

A WordPress blog is an ideal way to build a fan base, by allowing readers to glimpse the lives of their favourite authors – or their favourite book’s characters. Blogs are a versatile and easy to maintain platform, even for those who don’t have web design skills.

Social networking, such as Facebook and Twitter, is also very easy to integrate into a WordPress website and can expand your reach to your fanbase.

Printing

We can assist with selecting the best printer or print-on-demand (POD) service for your needs, and ensure that your files meet the specific requirements of the chosen printer.
