Steps for making a book

      "Open Christianity"

      From manuscript to book

      We can help organize your thoughts, pinpoint your focus, and break down the various sections of your manuscript with a brainstorming session.

      We will determine if your book needs a written analysis, developmental editing, and/or copyediting. This process will continue until you have approved the interior text.

      We will create interior and cover design samples for your review. It is always helpful if you have design ideas; if not, we can design your book for you. Please view our portfolio

      We will analyze text and graphics. We will discuss any special concerns, such as quality of art or missing files. Graphics assistance is available (including scanning).

      After you have approved the design samples, we will lay out the entire interior and cover of your book. You will then decide whether you want us to either reread or scan all of the pages (proofread) as a final quality check.

      If you have no more changes to the interior and cover pages, you may send us your final approval via e-mail.

      We will work directly with the selected printing vendor to submit files to their specifications. If you have chosen to produce an e-book, we will either refer you to an e-book conversion vendor or handle the process for you.

      Would you like us to train you?

      We encourage you to participate in the process and can provide training, if you decide to do any of the work yourself.
