Developmental Editing

Editing is an involved and many layered procedure, but usually, the first step is Developmental Editing. This is the process where we focus on the big picture.

The purpose of developmental editing is to improve the structure, content, and overall effectiveness of your manuscript. The DE’s job is to help you craft a clear and engaging narrative that organizes and presents your material in the most logical way for readers.

This is significant because it can take a good book to the next level and facilitate a deeper connection between the author and reader.

 

Some common issues that developmental editing can address are:

•effective manuscript structure

•premise gaps

•enhanced readability and flow

•ensured consistency

•refining unclear or ineffective writing style

•maximizing reader engagement

 

Tashai and her team will examine your entire manuscript, considering all aspects of the book, including its narrative and flow. They will also consider readability, plot, and structure. Her team will make the editing suggestions, and you are free to implement any and all that resonate with you.

 

(Note: If the manuscript is in need of line-editing, such as sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, and spelling, this is not included with the developmental editing. Typically, line-editing  and copy editing occur later in the process and are their own separate services. Although, Tashai will make you aware if your manuscript is in need of these types of edits.)

Professional Book Interior Layout & Formatting

Why does your book needs this?

Book layout and formatting is the art of arranging and structuring the visual elements of a book to enhance its readability, aesthetics, and overall impact. A well-designed interior layout eliminates distractions and allows the reader to enjoy every word of the prose. 

The design of a book interior goes beyond just choosing fonts and margins. It encompasses the thoughtful arrangement of chapters, headings, images, and whitespace. Effective book layout and formatting play a crucial role in providing a seamless reading experience and conveying the author’s message with clarity and professionalism.

 

To get started, schedule a free no-obligation discovery call to discuss your project. If we’re a good fit for you, we’ll have you submit your completed manuscript in a Word doc. See details below.

 

Price determination:
In order to provide you with an accurate quote for your book layout, Tashai and her team will need to see the entire manuscript to determine the length and complexity of the formatting. If there are images, photos, graphics or tables, they’ll need these as well. If you have any special formatting requirements such as specialized chapter pages, deviations from the standard book page headers, unusual spacing, or other atypical  formatting concepts, now is the time to let us know.

Professional Custom Book Cover Design

Why a custom book cover?

A crucial yet often overlooked key to the success of your book is the cover. The importance of a modern, professional thumbnail image cannot be overstated when it comes to getting online scrollers to stop and click on your title.

It is what potential customers see first. A book cover serves as the gateway to your story, enticing the perfect readers to purchase your work. First impressions matter and a dynamic cover layout provides an immediate signal of quality. It is more than a mere decorative feature, your cover is a powerful marketing tool that will draw readers into your world and elevate your chances of success.
 
This package is for you if all of the following are true:
•You know a custom cover design is important and you want it for your book. 
•Your title and subtitle are finalized and locked.
•You know the final page count of your formatted book (this determines the spine width).

Upload to Amazon

Why have us upload your book to Amazon?

Amazon.com is the top bookseller marketplace in the world. If you have a book, it makes wise sense to have it available on this site.

Yet, do you find yourself daunted by the technicalities of the actual upload process? Or perhaps your busy schedule leaves you with little time to spare. Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered.
 
Our hassle-free service is designed to take the this burden off your shoulders. We specialize in professionally uploading self-published books to the Amazon platform, allowing you to focus on what you do best, writing.
 
Uploads can include hardcovers, softcovers, ebooks, audiobooks, your author page, and additional publisher A+ content.
 
This service is ideal for you if:
•You have a completed book.
•It has been professionally formatted.
•You have a book cover.
•You want it available to as many potential buyers as possible.
•You want someone else (Amazon) to handle the actual production, packaging, and shipment of your books after they sell.
 
We offer you time-saving convenience, a seamless stress-free experience, and expert assistance navigating the intricacies of Amazon’s publishing requirements. In addition to uploading your book and cover, we fill in the all-important category and keyword info that you provide, set up your author page, and offer the option of adding A+ content to your Amazon book listing page (which makes your book stand out from the crowd).
