BOOK EDITING & PUBLISHING


Let Swift House Press publish your book so you can enjoy complete peace of mind knowing your book will have the professional appearance necessary to compete in today’s literary marketplace!

You have invested a significant amount of time, thought, and energy to write your book. You deserve a professional publishing experience that includes an enticing cover that attracts your right audience, a compelling book description that sells, and an ebook and paperback that reflect your commitment to your creative work.

Here’s how Swift House Press can help you:

 

PRE-PUBLISHING:

PRELIMINARY WRITING CONSULTATION

Our Managing Editor, Carolyn V. Hamilton, will read the first 20 pages your manuscript and critique it for you according to:

1)    the power of your concept

2)    how you can strengthen your sentences, and

3)    a line edit (grammar & punctuation)

Why twenty pages? Because reading that much allows us to get a feel for your voice and the direction—or non-direction—of your content.

As an ADDED BONUS we will tell you the one thing most important (based on your work) that you want to do to take your story to the next level.

With just this much, you will learn things that you can apply yourself to the rest of your manuscript.

YOUR PRELIMINARY WRITING CONSULTATION (20 PAGES): $79.

EDITING

There are two kinds of editors who can help you complete your manuscript so that you present a professional book, and your readers will not be disappointed, annoyed and possibly leave bad reviews.

The first kind of editing involves looking at your story itself.

A Developmental or Content Editor—really the same thing—will critique and evaluate your story line itself. He/she will look at the strength of your characters, the flow of the events and scenes, and where and how you might increase emotion—a key element for keeping your readers engaged in your story.

S/he, looking at the big picture, will look for inconsistencies in your story-telling and may suggest possible revisions that will make your story move forward with smoother pacing.

A Copy or Line Editor reads every line with a focused eye on words that are misspelled, names that are inconsistently spelled, punctuation, typos, and glaring grammar errors.

We will provide you with two documents: one showing the edits made in a side column, and a final document with the edits completed.

How to submit your manuscript: All documents must be submitted as Word documents, double-spaced, with Times Roman 12 pt font.

COVER DESIGN 

Your Cover design can be crucial to the success of your book.

Readers do judge a book by its cover. Studies have shown that most communication is 80% visual and your cover provides that all-important first impression. Think of this as wearing your best suit to a job interview.

The design elements of your cover must help the potential reader immediately identify the book’s genre. The sole purpose of the cover is to intrigue the potential reader enough to click on it or turn it over and take the next step, reading your book description.

When you purchase a cover design from Swift House Press, Managing Editor Carolyn V. Hamilton (an award-winning graphic designer) will work with you one-on-one to design a cover that best reflects your genre.

Here’s how OUR COVER DESIGN PROCESS works:

Our first step will be to research the current market for best-selling covers in your genre.

You would provide a synopsis of your story. After reading it Carolyn will create five potential cover mockups using fonts and images appropriate for your genre.

At this preliminary stage we would not expect you to select one as your final. Carolyn would ask you to give feedback on which visual elements, which fonts, which layouts you like best.

From your feedback she will create two final potential cover mockups. She might take a combination of what you like best about each to create a final cover.

Your approved cover will be provided to you in Jpeg and PDF formats, in both high resolution (for printing) and low resolution (for the Internet) formats.
