Are you ready to publish your book? While there are dozens of platforms available to self-publish your book, it is easy to get lost. What we provide is coaching you along the way, helping you to convert your Word file, Google Doc, HTML document, LaTeX document, or (with some editing) even your text document to publish it as a paperback, hardcover, or ebook on Amazon, Google, and Leanpub. If your book fits into our general selection of topics, we can even manage all the paperwork for you and publish it under the LODE Publishing label.
The ideal time for a writer to work with a publisher is at the very beginning to specify the goals, target audience, scope, etc. of your book. This is ensures consistent quality of writing and prevents costly restructuring at the end of the process.
Of course, we offer technical services for publishing finished manuscripts. If your manuscript still needs work, we will suggest copy-editing, consistency checking, and proofreading services. If you are still missing a book description or outline, it might be worthwhile to discuss the underlying ideas of your book before moving forward. If you do not already have a cover, we can offer you a cover creation service.
If your text meets these basic prerequisites (spelling, grammar, etc.), we need to gather the following items:
- Book description
- Publication date (if published elsewhere)
- Book size (for printed books), quality (for images), and type (e-book, softcover, hardcover)
With these items, we can execute the technical conversion of your existing text into the right format.
