The She Publishes package includes a custom cover design and a custom interior design, as well as full file preparation, both for e-publication and for POD (print-on-demand) or print. The production process begins the moment you submit a manuscript that we have deemed ready for publication.
You will fill out a cover memo to help our designers understand your sensibilities, as well as give examples of other book covers that appeal to you. You will initially receive a pdf file of five rough design concepts and choose the one which most resonates with you, which a SWP designer will then polish for your final book jacket.
Once you choose the general cover concept, you will receive two sample interior layouts to choose from. Once you decide on your preference, your entire manuscript will be laid out and a pdf of the interior pages will be sent to you for review. It’s at this point that we recommend you hire a proofreader to review your pages.
Once you and your proofreader have reviewed your changes and conflated them into one document, you will send your corrections to your SWP project manager. Once these changes are implemented, you will receive a second and final pdf file of your designed book.
You will supply us with back cover content and blurbs to edit. The She Publishes package includes an editorial review of your back cover.
Once both files are approved and to your liking, your book will be uploaded and made ready and available for POD (print-on-demand), or it will be prepped for printing.
