Crave Press Publishing Process-The One-Stop Solution For Serious Authors
This stage consists of transforming a rough and potentially unpolished manuscript into a clean, presentation-worthy book that is ready for sale in stores and via online platforms. Your manuscript will proceed through various stages of editing, layout design, and graphics until itís ready for professional publication. This involves the following major steps:
Every author thinks that his/her manuscript is free of errors and ready to print, but this is rarely the case. Even the writings of the most accomplished author are filled with small errors. Nothing can take the place of a professional editing of your work. We review your manuscript to identify grammatical, typographical, and syntax errors. All suggested revisions require your consent before they are implemented.
Based on your ideas, our graphic designers will create a full-color custom cover design for your book. Since it is the very first and sometimes only thing many potential book purchasers will see of your work, the cover design needs to quickly convince potential readers and shoppers to buy your book. We need your book to stand out among the many other books on the shelves, and an extraordinary cover is the only way to accomplish that. Sometimes, you can judge a book by its cover!
In addition to a print edition, your book can be made available as an eBook available for digital reader devices like the Amazon Kindle, the Apple iPad and iPhone, and the Barnes & Noble Nook. We will handle the process of converting your print book into an eBook.
