How does the book publishing process work?
Throughout our AuthorCentricsm publishing process, you collaborate with a personal team of publishing consultants to ensure your vision is translated into a custom-designed book. Our publishing consultants provide advice for you to reach your publishing goals while you maintain creative control. You decide what is best for the project, and we design the book around your ideas and goals.
- Once we have received all of your materials, we learn about your vision for the project before we begin to work on your book. After reviewing your manuscript, the book designer and cover designer will collaborate with you to choose the most attractive and readable design for your genre. We will design your book interior and cover and send you a galley proof to review.
- As soon as you return the galley to us, we'll make any revisions you request and, if necessary, send you a second galley. This process will continue until you approve all content within your book. Once you have approved the galley and cover, we’ll place your book on our printer's production schedule.
- Your book is turned into an electronic computer file that contains all the content - words, pictures, tables, and other elements, including formatting specifications. From this file, we can generate books in a wide range of formats: hardcover and paperback books, downloadable electronic books and eBooks. The entire process is based on new print on demand technology, so every book made with us uses online book printing--every copy is actually an original, with no loss of quality, even after thousands of copies. At every stage in the process, our unique author center allows you to check on the progress of your book by simply visiting our website.
