Manuscript preparation covers all aspects of the book creation process, to get your words, thoughts and ideas to the stage of print-ready proof or e-book. We work with authors, writers, independent publishers throughout the pre-printing and/or e-book conversion process to transform your manuscript into a quality book.
 
Our abiding aim is to create a finished product that does justice to your literary output and efforts: something that anyone would be proud to have on their bookshelf, coffee table, kindle device or other e-reader; one that you can confidently present to the book-buying public and will not feel let down when it comes to the marketing and selling aspect of the publishing process.
