Proofreading and Copy Editing
Whether you are self-publishing or following a more traditional route to market, you need to ensure your book is typo-free. Readers are very critical of poorly edited books and even a few small errors can make all the difference between success and failure for your book.
Proofreading and copy editing costs £8.50 per thousand words
Kindle is the most popular format for ebooks – out of every 10 ebooks sold 8 are for the Kindle ereaders or the many Kindle apps that are available. However, formatting for Kindle is not as simple as uploading a Word file. There are all sorts of issues that need to be addressed to ensure your book displays properly on every device. My Kindle formatting process ensures your paragraphs, headers, images etc. all display correctly and your book will have a working table of contents, embedded cover artwork and a properly formatted NCX file. (This is the “tool” that enables you to flip between chapters quickly; it’s also the coding necessary to display those little “ticks” along the bottom of the Kindle screen that show you where the chapters are. It’s often missing from books that haven’t been properly formatted.)
Kindle Formatting costs from £99. Please contact me for details and a quote.
While ebooks are quite limited in the fonts and layouts they can use, print books let you run away with your imagination, using unusual fonts, images, unusual word layouts and so on. Whether you want a traditional layout or something more customised, I can help you design the book of your dreams.
Book Formatting costs from £99. Please contact me for a quote or to discuss your requirements.
Book Cover Design
The cover of your book is your biggest marketing opportunity and not something you should neglect. So many self-published authors DIY their covers – and it shows. I work with specialist book cover designers to develop a cover that is relevant to your book, stands out AND looks good at thumbnail size. When you order a cover you will get not just one but three different versions, so you can choose the one that works best for you.
Ebook covers £100. Print covers £150. Contact me for details, or call me on 01367 888229 to discuss your ideas.
If you would like a website to promote your book(s), events etc. then look no further. I can build you a simple but effective website that you will be able to edit and grow as and when you need to.
