BOOK DESIGN & PRINTING
We start with your raw, final manuscript, and design a suitable format for the textual parts of your book which includes establishing layout styles and appropriate fonts. Images and or photographs that you want to include in the text will be incorporated and adjustments made to ensure they are of a sufficient quality to be commercially printed.

PUBLISHING AND GRAPHIC DESIGN FOR ACADEMIC AND COMMERCIAL AUTHORS
After the manuscript is formatted it must be reviewed by you and or an editor. You will be involved in the perusal of drafts submitted by us so that you can identify and correct any factual errors, typos and grammatical errors. Once your edits and any amendments and additions are finalised the book will be prepared by us for professional printing and or digital dissemination.
A cover design will be produced for your approval. Its aim will be to attract the attention of your potential and interested audience and to inform them about your book's contents.
Depending on your requirements we will advise you on the best printing method – be that in a limited, short run or in larger more economical numbers if your intention is to sell them.
We know how much work you've put into writing your book – the long hours of research, writing, editing and refining your masterpiece. If you are nearing the end of this process you will need to take steps towards having your book designed, formatted, printed and or converted into an ebook by an expert publications designer. This will ensure that your book is accurate, highly readable and attracts the attention of those who will find its contents of interest to them. Unless you have already established who your readers are, you may need additional assistance to locate your audience. You may appreciate our experienced advice about publicising and promoting your book.
