As with all publishing preparations, it is essential you plan and book ahead. We'll need to secure dates and organise workable timelines with you to ensure we are able to meet your upload and publishing date(s).

The whole process takes approximately three months. 

 

We work from the following timeline:

 

STEP 1

  • You contact us to secure your dates. Depending on the availability of our editors, we may be able to fit you in with two-to-four weeks' notice.

  • Contract signed and deposit paid

  • Secure pre-edit beta read ASAP. This will help to identify possible content issues or conflicts in your novel, and also gives you the opportunity to receive unbiased, constructive reader support and feedback.
