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. It is always helpful if you have design ideas; if not, we can design them for you. We will work together to get the look and feel you want for your book. 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 your book has been designed, you will decide whether you want us to either reread or scan all of the pages (proofread) as a final quality check.

      Once 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.
