APP operates a straight forward commercial model, pricing each element of the publishing process separately for you to understand and agree.
Our publishing process covers:
Editing: We strongly believe that an author’s writing benefits from independent editing and proof reading. We use a number of qualified editors/proofers to ensure your manuscript achieves its full potential.
You may also wish to use our Literary Critique service to have your manuscript professionally assessed for strengths and weaknesses within your genre.
Design & Production: APP offers a bespoke design service for the cover of your book where three designs are created for your approval. We also design posters and invites for book launches, producing original and eye-catching publicity material.
Through our international printers Ingram Lightning Source we publish paperbacks in industry standard sizes. We also publish in e format for Kindle and other readers.
ISBN Registration: We discuss and agree the category under which your publication will be registered. It is then listed with Nielsen for wholesalers, and retailers as well as Amazon for online sellers.
Promotion and Marketing: Our talented digital marketing team design campaigns across social media and the web to achieve what matters to you most - growing audiences, engaging with readers and generating book sales. We understand the importance of metadata and discuss key words and phrases that help to identify your book to a potential audience.
Contracts: We offer a complete and transparent service so that all negotiations on publishing and subsidiary rights are easy to understand and the level of royalty paid is fair to both author and publisher.
Private Publishing: You may just wish to print your manuscript for private distribution. We are very happy to assist in this way and have successfully helped with the publication of a book that served as a memorial project.
“There is no friend as loyal as a book.”
