ISBN Application

We will gladly be able to guide South African authors through the ISBN process. Each format of your book needs its own unique ISBN number.

Manuscript Editing

Editing or proof reading is the natural starting point for any author wanting to publish. An essential and often overlooked part of the self-publishing process, editing is where a paid-professional reads your manuscript. They then make corrections and suggestions with the goal of improving the reading experience, producing a more polished book. Every author should have their words 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 their readers suffering from decreased attention spans.

Mix in a few quality images easily convey your book’s content. The resulting design should foster an emotional connection with your reader, enticing them to make the purchase.
