The Book Publishing Process
You have some knowledge or a message to share with the world, but are still not sure how to express it in structured, logical, and enjoyable way. This is when you're still in the idea formulation phase.
Perhaps you don't know where to even start! that's completely fine - it's 100% normal! We are here to guide you in the best way possible to formulate your book ideas into something that is unique enough to stand out in the market and adds value to the right audience.
We know it can be challenging and frustrating to be lost in the myriad of initial thoughts. That's why getting someone to guide you to organise your thoughts is the best way to get started. We offer product creation consulting to get your ideas structured logically into a book that is worthy of being published and read by the world.
The next step is actually writing your book. This can be a time consuming process that can take weeks, months, or even years (if you're writing a thick one).
This step requires focus, effort and consistency. It's not a sprint, it's a marathon and that's why so few people go on to write their own books. If you do choose to write your own book, then we suggest writing between 500 and 2,000 words per day, depending on how much energy and inspiration you have.
Set yourself weekly milestones! This is the best way forward. If you don't like writing, but still want to have your own book, then we do offer ghost writing services (others write the content for you). Send us a message to learn more about this...
BOOK EDITING & PROOFREADING
After writing your book, you are ready to polish your masterpiece. This is a three-stage transformation process where your book can go from "good" to amazing. By getting feedback on the structure, flow, and overall impression, you can fine tune your content into an even better piece of work.
During our three-pass editing process which involves content/structure editing, copyediting, and proofreading/grammar, your book goes through a transformation process similar to that of a caterpillar turning into a beautiful butterfly.
It's essential to have someone other than yourself look over your book before moving onto the next step for the best outcome possible.
Once your book is edited, the next step is formatting. This is a step many amateur writers leave out but is a very important part to the overall presentation of your book.
Formatting involves making sure your titles, headings, fonts, images, and any other elements look good and flow seamlessly, regardless of the page size or device your book is being read on (for e-books).
You can choose from a range of professional book design templates that will leave an impactful first impression for your readers.

BOOK COVER DESIGN & 3D MOCKUPS
You're almost done! Now you need a cover worthy of your masterpiece! This can either make or break your book. The truth is people do judge a book by its cover - mostly within milliseconds of seeing it.
You want to be able to stand out from your competition and grab attention. Once you have attention, you've bought yourself a few more seconds of your potential reader's time to convince them your book is worth buying and reading.
We can help you to design an attention-grabbing and professional cover that looks great and fits your book title, content, and audience. We also offer 3D book cover mockups that can help you pre-launch your book as well.
Have a look at our library to see some of the covers we've designed so far.
Your book is now published! Congrats! Now what? Without visibility, you don't have a chance to get people to even read it. That's why you need effective marketing to get it in front of the right audience.
Digital marketing is our most preferred way to market you book. We use a combination of marketing channels such as Amazon ads, Facebook ads, and Google ads. We help you choose the right one for you and your budget as well as set up a campaign that will get you book sales.
Lack of a good marketing strategy is one of the biggest pitfalls that stops new authors from getting their book out in the market.
The Next Steps...
The next logical step is to decide whether you'd like to publish a print book, e-book, or both! There's virtually little additional work required to publish both, so we recommend doing both. If you're unsure which one is better, or how to get started, feel free to contact us for more information.
