Kim will speak to you to discover more about you, your book and your ambitions for it.
We know for that for many of you the technical aspects of book production is something you don’t have the time to learn or that it is too daunting. That’s why we offer comprehensive range of publishing services. When you decide to use those services, this is what you get in return.
We will work with you to find an attractive cover that suits your book. You will be offered three basic designs which together we will fine-tune until you are happy.
The next stage is a discussion on what you would like your book to look like inside the cover. We will ask you about the style of font you may want and any special features such as lists, tables or images.
We will work on the book and then send you an online proof for you to check. Any changes are then made and your files are returned to you for uploading to the ebook distributor and/or your chosen printer.
We will work with you to design a cover that begins to tell the story of your book. We will offer advice on images, fonts and colour to produce the cover that will interest and attract potential readers.
The internal design of the book has to match its tone and genre. We will choose the layout and fonts to fit your book. We will also format lists, tables and images where appropriate. The design will be mirrored – as near as the technology allows – in both ebook and paperback.
We will format your ebook to ensure that it will render properly on all e-readers including text, images, and a complete table of contents.
Typesetting is a skill as old as the printing industry. We will typeset your paperback to professional standards to make it indistinguishable from a traditionally published book.
Books that are self-published are more likely to be criticised for errors in grammar and spelling than those that are published by traditional publishers. That’s why we have a number of editors ready to edit your book, and we will endeavour to match you with someone who will work with you and encourage you to produce the best book you can.
Books for children often need illustration to help bring them to life. We will help you to find an illustrator that will capture the essence of your writing and produce illustrations that match the tone of your story.
Protecting your work and avoiding the pitfalls of legal disputes are vital. Our legal advisor will help you to ensure your work is protected and does not fall foul of the law in any way.
As we have discovered in the past few years, the world of publishing can be a maze. We will advise you on how to get your own ISBNs, prepare for print-on-demand publishing and how to upload your ebooks to the various distributors. We will continue to be here for you after publication and be with you on your publishing journey offering support and encouragement.
Here is a small selection of some of the books we have already helped to publish. This gallery highlights cover design, internal book design and the premium bespoke eBooks that we produce. The premium ebooks can contain images, tables and lists, all formatted to the highest professional standards. We endeavour to make the eBook look as close to the printed material as possible.
I worked with Kim and Sinclair on Write an Evolutionary Self-Help Book, the Definitive Guide for Spiritual Entrepreneurs. From the minute I connected with them I knew that I wanted to work with them. I have a very high standard of publishing! Having been previously published by a leading publishing company, I knew what I wanted for this book and I was very precise. Kim and Sinclair listened. They adapted in order to accommodate my needs. It was an awesome experience and I was very pleased with the book. It was a very technical venture, with lots of text boxes, logos and intricacies involved. I was delighted with the results and highly recommend them.
I split from my publisher in July 2014. The help and support I received from Kim and Sinclair afterwards was absolutely amazing. They turned around my latest book from a text document to a fully published book, available for sale, within a matter of weeks. Great advice, from lovely people with tremendous experience and dedicated to helping indie authors. I’d recommend them in a heartbeat!
Working with Indie Authors World has helped to make publishing my book so much easier. Kim and Sinclair’s combined knowledge and expertise in turning my ‘word’ document into a manuscript that was ready to upload to Kindle and my print on demand company was priceless. I would recommend Indie Authors World as they make self publishing as stress free as possible.
