Your Typical Self-Publishing Journey Begins Here

 

 

ISBN Application

Let’s get your baby it’s birth certificate.

Editing

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.

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.

Cover Design

You invested months and even years into your writing. Don’t let your reader down with a shoddy cover design. The ingredients of a winning cover include ideal fonts, suited for your genre mixed together carefully with quality images that easily convey the content or message of your book. A book cover done right should foster an emotional connection to your reader, making them want to make the purchase.
