So you’ve finished your book – the same book you’ve been working on for years. For the longest time, you thought you would have to go through the grueling process of submitting it to agents. If that worked and someone accepted it, you figured you’d then have to wait for an editor at a publishing house to like it. The process could literally take years! Thankfully, with the new eBook revolution, self-publishing is more viable than ever. But what if you’re not technologically inclined and don’t know how to create an eBook? Well, that’s where we come in. We have the knowledge, skill and resources to help!
The eBook formatting process (in which you actually make a book) is probably the most grueling part of the publishing adventure. If you know nothing about HTML coding or how to use particular programs to do the formatting for you, then this may be the barrier that makes you give up on self-publishing. We can clean up your book’s formatting and make sure it’s properly coded and constructed.
Your cover is the most important marketing piece you have. Readers will see your cover before anything else, and may make snap judgments about your book before deciding to read the story or not. It’s imperative your book have a cover that is not only visually appealing, but one that also reflects your genre well. Our talented cover designers work exclusively with self-publishing authors to ensure their books have the same visual impact as those of the large publishing houses. Great book cover design is essential for getting your book into readers’ hands!
After getting an appealing cover, your blurb will be the next step in hooking your readers. Granted, writing a book description is sometimes much harder than writing a novel. You have to take you entire plot and condense it into a short, punchy summary. It’s a separate art form in itself. If you need a little help, we can write the blurb for you. All we’ll need is some information about your book. Once you have the best book summary and cover possible (and, of course, a properly formatted book) you’ll be ready for the final step.
