More Info...

We love creating dynamic books, but we understand that the process can be confusing for a first-time self-publisher. With the Publish Ready Bundle, you'll have all the elements you need to get your book into the market. Feel free to ask about any of the below items. If we can't do them for you, we'll let you know where to find them.

Editing: Send only fully edited text. If you require editing, please visit our EDITING page. You will get a chance for final proofread after the design is complete, but this is the time only for tweaking typos, not major edits.

ISBNs: If you are using Createspace or Kindle Direct Publishing, you may be eligible for a free ISBN. Otherwise, ISBNs are available in the U.S. at Bowker Identifier Services.

Barcodes: Your printer may prefer to create the barcode. If not, we'll get you one free of charge.

Charts, graphs and images: Images need to be formatted with care in book design. The Print Book Interior Design package is a base price for a narrative text. If you supply the images, we'll format them for the best printing results. Don't have images or graphs, but need some? We can help you out with those too. Either way, please CONTACT US for a quotation.

Footnotes, endnotes and indexing: The Print Book Interior Design package is a base price for a narrative text. If you have footnotes, endnotes, or and index in your book, please CONTACT US for a quotation.

If your book contains any of the following, extra charges may be incurred: 

  • Images (other than the cover and author bio image)
  • Charts or graphs
  • Endnotes or footnotes
  • Indexing
  • Links to url's (a few links are to be expected, but if your book has links on every page, expect extra charges. Linked url's need to be verified in the validation process and that takes time.)
  • Over 500 pages 

FAQ

How long does it take to design a book interior? 

A print book interior design usually takes about 14 business days to complete from the time we receive your information. Certain times of the year are busier than others and completion times may take longer then. We will always advise you about the estimated time to complete your cover when you order.

In what file format should I send my manuscript?

Send us your manuscript any of the following file formats: .doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt. Please don't send .pdf files. These don't convert well to plain text.

Do I need an ISBN for my book?

If you are using Createspace or Kindle Direct Publishing, you may be eligible for a free ISBN. Otherwise, ISBNs are available in the U.S. at Bowker Identifier Services.

How do you proceed to design my book?

Within 5 business days of receiving your information (usually sooner), we will create three (2) sample mockups for you to choose from. These mockups will be for 1 chapter only and will incorporate any font and design elements needed for your book. The purpose of the mockup is to choose a general design. Once the design is chosen, we will proceed to format your book. When done, we will send you a pdf for proofing. After your final edits, we will send you print-ready pdf artwork, ready to upload to your book retailer.

What trim size should I choose for my book.

​The industry standard for trade paperbacks is 6x9 inches. But other standard book sizes are available from many retailers. If you're not sure what size your book should be, we can help you decide.
