Indie-publishing services (book production management)
Transforming your manuscript into a published book
My job is to take the stress out of independent (indie) publishing by providing you with professional author-assisted publishing services. It’s very likely that you feel confused about the steps you need to take to typeset and self-publish your book. This is understandable because you are a writer, not a publisher, and self-publishing platforms and manuscript guidelines can be quite complex.
Book production management and publishing services
I assist indie authors to self-publish via Amazon CreateSpace and KDP as well as IngramSpark. For Australian authors especially, publishing via IngramSpark provides additional printing, distribution and royalty payment benefits not available through CreateSpace.
Book design and layout
I can help you with book design, layout, typesetting and image insertion. I use state-of-the-art templates and design techniques to produce your book to industry-publishing standards. I collaborate with you during this creative process, but you retain ultimate control of the publication.
I can also refer you to expert cover designers familiar with CreateSpace and IngramSpark cover specifications.
ISBN, Legal deposit, W8BENand US tax-exemption certificates
Indie publishing involves many legalities that authors are often not aware of. I can confidently guide you in obtaining and completing this information.
Print on demand (POD) publishing set-up
I will set up your author account on Amazon CreateSpace and/or IngramSpark and upload all interior pages and book cover PDF files in preparation for POD book sales. This service also includes uploading your author taxation forms, inputting your book’s description, metadata, BISAC codes, relevant keywords and author bio.
