Self-Publishing a printed book
Manuscripts can not be submitted to printing houses as word documents, they need to follow specific in house formatting. Manuscripts need to be converted into books. The interior of the books will need to be design without using a template and will take into consediration your input and theme Our design simple designs will include margins, typography, headings, include a copy page, title and half title pages and ISBN. For more complicated books they will need to have carefully place images, table of contents, etc.
Please note that stories of non fiction should have been fact checking.
Once design and proofs are approved by you we will be sent a PDF or if needed in specific situations we can send the publishing how a copy of the InDesign file.
We are currently not working on book covers unless you already have a vision for it and or a possible image. We would be more than happy to recommend our graphic designer friends of Word Garden to help and work closely with bot of us.

Self-Publishing for electronic books
Like printed books, one will need to format your story and prepare it into digital file (PDF, DOCX or EPUB) ready to meet a publisher’s requirements.

Most online companies that you will want to upload your digital file to sell will want a flowable EPUB, this is the format needed for Kobo,.. This format will allow your readers to read your book on tablets and smartphones and allow your reader to adjust their reading experience to what suites them best, be it a larger font or smaller margins.,users to take notes and add highlights on an eBook.
There is another form of EPUB digital file called fixed EPUB, this is a more complex file usually used for cook books, children book and books with lots of images that need to have all their interior elements fixed to a specific page.
Some personal websits like squarespace have an ebook section, for this you can use the pdf file used for your printed book. There might be some little adjustments needed but if this is something you would like, just let our team know and we will help.
