Easy steps to self publishing your book

To find out more about our simple steps to getting published, please click on the formats below.

Paperback and Kindle (ebook) formats:

  1. We format your paperback book to the standard style.
  2. You are emailed the first drafts in Word format, allowing you to make changes, if required. Once you have completed your edits, you email this file back to us.
  3. We design the front cover and send you a draft (unless you are providing this yourself).
  4. We design the spine and back cover and convert the Word file to ready the book for printing.
  5. Final drafts are emailed to you showing the entire book – all the internal pages and the covers. This is how the book will look when it is printed.
  6. You are also emailed three suggested retail prices for your paperback book, plus advice on pricing for the Kindle version.
  7. Once you are happy with these final drafts and choose your retail prices, we finish a few things and then you can decide if you’d like to order a proof copy of your book and have it posted to your home.
  8. After receiving your proof copy or emailed final drafts, check it to see if you are happy with the book, or if you require more changes.
  9. If changes are required, we will email you back the most up-to-date Word version of your manuscript for you to make those alterations. You then email these back to us and Steps 5 and 7 are repeated.
  10. However, if you are satisfied with the proof copy or emailed final drafts, let us know and we will complete the publishing and distribution of the paperback and the Kindle ebook onto Amazon.
  11. Both formats should appear on Amazon within 48 hours, although there can be a delay if their system is busy. With Total Distribution, the process usually takes around a month or so to complete.
  12. We email you the invoice and you can pay by credit card, PayPal, bank transfer, or cheque.

Kindle (Ebook) publishing only:

  1. We format your ebook to the standard style.
  2. You are emailed the first drafts in Word format, allowing you to make changes, if required. Once you have completed your edits, you email this file back to us.
  3. We design the front cover (unless you are providing this yourself). A back cover and spine is not required.
  4. You choose a retail price with the help of information that we provide to you.
  5. Once you are satisfied with the draft of your book and choose a retail price, we publish onto Amazon.
  6. Your book should appear there within 24 hours.
  7. We email you the invoice and you can pay by credit card, PayPal, bank transfer or cheque.
