In addition to our publishing packages we offer the following services:

Editing

We offer a comprehensive and competitively priced editorial service, including manuscript appraisal, structural editing and copy-editing. Every manuscript is different, and some need more editorial input than others, so we will need to see your work before we can quote for editorial services.

Premium cover design

With each of our packages, your cover design is included. You will work directly with one of our designers to create an eye-catching and attractive cover. You will receive one worked-up cover proof and you can make unlimited corrections to that design.

If you opt for our premium cover service you will receive three different cover proofs. You select one of these proofs to be fully developed and you may propose unlimited corrections to the selected proof. Our premium cover service adds €200 to the standard package price and must be opted for when contracts are signed in order that the extra time involved can be worked into the publishing schedule.

All design files will be supplied to print and digital specification, and you will also receive a web-optimised image and a 3D render of the book cover.
