Getting started and how the initial process works?

Creating your book
1.    We will advise on a size and format for your book and calculate the total number of pages
2.    We will then send you an agreement and an invoice for an initial deposit to start the work
3.    If you agree, please send us back the signed agreement, your initial deposit and your book manuscript
4.    We will proofread your manuscript and send back the master copy to be signed off by you
5.    Upon receipt of your signed off manuscript, we will commence the artwork for your new book and provide a basic cover design
6.    We will provide you the initial proof of your book for approval or comments
7.    Once your book is approved and signed off by you, we will invoice you for the balance
8.    Upon receipt of this final payment, we will send you the print PDFs for your distribution
