As a complete book editing service, HyperEdits offers help beyond the basic steps of proofreading and copyediting. You can get consultation and critique for your work in progress and choose the level of copyediting you need. When your book is ready to be published, I can format your manuscript to meet the requirements of Kindle or Smashwords, for ebook distribution. If you choose print publication, I recommend the free print-on-demand (POD) service offered by Amazon CreateSpace. The CreateSpace publication process has specific requirements different from the layout and formatting choices made for ebook publication.
Any of these steps you can do yourself, and I will provide you with some free guidelines to help you format correctly if you choose. Or you may find it more efficient to let me use my time and experience to prepare your book for submission to Amazon or Smashwords. If you have another printer or publisher in mind, I can use their guidelines to format your book or ebook for you. If you choose to go the route of traditional publishing, the formatting of your manuscript is more straightforward. You might need extra help in crafting a query letter or book proposal, however. In this ultra-competitive arena, pleasing these gatekeepers is critical to your success. The same challenge applies after publication, when it comes to convincing readers to buy on the basis of your “killer blurb” – an apt phrase since it will kill or pique the reader’s interest. This book description of one or two paragraphs, online or on the book’s back cover, can also benefit from the expertise of HyperEdits to hone and polish your wording. The following menu will guide you to the most appropriate information and resources for your writing project. You can always email with any questions you may have.
