Your Guided Self-Publishing Experience Starts Here

An ISBN is a 13-digit number helping retailers identify your new book within their systems or catalogues. Each country has their own organisation that handles new ISBN applications. For South Africans, we will gladly guide you through the application process, ensuring you obtain your new ISBN numbers. Each format of your book needs its own unique ISBN number.
Editing or proof reading is a natural starting point for any author looking to publish. An essential part of the self-publishing process, editing is where a paid-professional reads through your manuscript. The editor then makes corrections and suggestions with the goal of improving the reading experience, producing a more polished book. Every author should have their manuscript professionally edited. No excuses.
Book Art and Illustrations
Nothing screams “amateur” more than images or illustrations in your book sourced from clipart or stolen from Google. Captivating and professional illustrations are essential for any author looking to increase engagement with readers suffering from decreased attention spans.
Book Cover Design
After pouring months or even years into your writing, don’t let your readers down with a shoddy cover design. Ingredients of a winning cover include unique and genre-specific fonts. Throw in a few quality images capturing and easily conveying your book’s content. The resulting design should foster an emotional connection with your reader. Piquing their interest, enticing them to make the purchase.
