procedure & SERVICES

First, please tell us a bit about your manuscript, which may be best given by answering the questions listed below. This will help us to gauge cost and timing, while providing a window to the services that you may, indeed, require.


Questions

  • Has the text been finalized via editing, copy editing, etc., is it currently ready, and what is its page count?
  • If your manuscript is non-fiction will there be an index, appendices, endnotes, etc.?
  • What will the trim size, measurements, of your finished book be (6" x 9", 5" x 8", 8" x 8")?
  • Will your book be in softcover format with, perhaps, leaves or a jacket (more common these days) or will it be a hardcover book with a jacket or case printed or case printed with a jacket?
  • Will your book be black and white, full color and how many pictures or illustrations will it contain? Will the pictures completely cover the entire page (full-bleed) or will the pictures have borders?
  • Will you be providing a universal ISBN (EAN) or will we be providing that for you, free of charge?
  • What is the desired selling price of your book?
  • Are there any additional notes, design ideas, like books that express your design inclination or do you wish to lead others in the design of your book?

consultation

Once these questions have been answered, it will then be time to schedule a complimentary 15-20 minute initial consultation to answer any questions that you might have, to provide an estimate of costs, and to provide a timeline for the completion of your project. 

After the consultation, we will need a signed contract, either a MSWord doc or an Apple Pages doc, with your complete manuscript, and either a downloadable digital file of your pictures or a disk containing the pictures for your book.
