CHOOSE YOUR METHOD...
Method A : We do it all for you!
Most authors prefer to have us do it all for them. They are off writing their next book and prefer to have us take it off their hands and return to them with a crafted proof for their approval. This is actually the method we recommend for all our users. Give us a word document, a text file... we'll make a book of it! We can edit, design and craft your book to fit your needs.
At no extra cost, your account representative takes you by the hand. You will e-mail/upload your manuscript and/or images for your cover, and your account representative will return to you with a design for your approval.
Have a word, pdf, ocx, txt, openOffice, indd document? Whatever format your manuscript is in, we'll take charge and return to you with a professionally crafted and designed book to fit your specifications.
We design your book cover with or without your own images!
Method B: Download / Upload via our templates
SOME of our authors like to work on their own. They have their own way of doing things. They have meticulously selected their font, looked at margin structures and page layouts. They have designed their chapter headings and had a colleague or friend design the book cover for them. They have done all the requisite spelling and fact checks. Copyedits are done and their manuscript has been professionally edited.
These authors will prefer using Method B - Download / Upload your Book via our Templates.

Make sure you've reviewed the Quick Step Guide, How To: Working with your Interior File and How To: Working with your cover template file. Refer to the Tutorials section or contact us for any questions you may have.
1 - Choose the sort of book you want (Hardcover / Softcover / Color Interior, etc.). For more information on our book offerings, please go here.
2 - Download the template package specific to your book choice. Your template package will contain templates for the cover and the interior of your book.
3 - Prepare your cover template and interior template until you are satisfied. Make sure you've followed the guidelines and that you are happy with the way you're book looks. (It's often helpful to print a couple of pages out and crop them to size to see how the pages would look in your book. See Tutorials Section for other tips.) Check for spelling and grammar errors. Make sure all images used are 300 DPI.
