I’m currently designing my latest book. It’s non-fiction, and let me tell you, designing a non-fiction book takes days and often weeks to get right. Novels, fairly easy, but if there’s special formatting, that takes a long time too.
I’m not complaining, far from it. I’m making a point about using a publisher such as us rather than self-publishing. For a lot of writers, the written word is their strength, layout and design, not so much. Covers! Oh, my, there is so much that goes into that!
It doesn’t matter what publisher you have, traditional, independent, or self, marketing and publicity is going to be on you. Publishers help, but platform building is a writer’s job. Layout and design? ISBN, registering, loading and categorizing to Amazon the most effective way… these are where 90% of writers need help.
If you’re a designer and writer, and you’re confident you can do it alone, good luck and best wishes. Not sure about all that? Want a little help and fellowship along the path? That’s what Prevail Press is about.
If you’re not a Lone Wolf, join our band of merry writers. We want to help.
Small Print: We don’t take everyone. You have to have a quality book that fits our profile. But I’ll talk to everyone.
