Make a Pre-Publishing Review Submission

What you will receive

The Pre-Publishing Review will provide you with a report detailing the suitability of your current manuscript for publishing. You will receive guidance around editing requirements, book design options, and community connections that you can make to establish an audience for your book. This review will allow you to confidently take the next step to having your work published.
You can be a published author and we will help you create a beautiful book that stands apart on the shelf.

Editing is one of those tedious but required tasks for any published work. With the Pre-Publishing Review, we will provide an independant overview of the editing needed to make your work publication ready.
Every book needs good book design to make it stand apart from the crowd and ensure that none of those little errors make it to your final printed book. This includes formatting for e-publication to open up a new sales avenue for you.
Creating a connection with the community who will read your story is the first step to a great marketing plan. From your draft manuscript we will identify those communities who would be interested in your story and suggest ways for you to connect directly with these groups pre-publication.
