Our staff are experienced, mature people who know what is involved in researching and writing a book, and the excitement of working towards its publication. We see this relationship as a team combining a range of complementary skills to produce a really good-looking book.
We know that some authors will have self published before and 'know the ropes' whilst others will be new to the business. Your editor will listen carefully to your requirements and, where appropriate, offer advice. This will cover suggestions on format, design of the book, typefaces, paper quality, and whether the book should be hardback or paperback.
Once you have decided to self publish and wish to consider The Better Book Company to manage the production of your book, we will turn your requirements into a specification for your book and provide you with a fully costed estimate.
Your editor will explain the value of having your own imprint and the use of an ISBN and bar code. Any problems of copyright and other relevant legal points will be dealt with at the outset. Your marketing plan will be discussed in detail and a cover price for your book agreed.
We work as a team to ensure consistently high standards.
