You have a manuscript and would like help in bringing it out as a book… Read on!
Help needed with the content
- If you would like somebody with a good eye to read through your book and help you with punctuation, spelling, paragraphing and general consistency and flow, you might enjoy working with one of our copy-editors.
- If you would like to work with somebody who can help you bring alive the content of your book, feel free to connect with one of our content editors.
- If you would like to publish your book at Salt River, the keywords of our books are: inspiring, encouraging or entertaining. If your book generally fits SRP parameters – whether it’s a cookbook, a children’s book, a book on education, whatever – email a short description of your book and 5 pages of excerpts to: email@example.com
Help needed with layout and design
- You can print a book direct from a Word document, but it will look like a book printed direct from a Word document. If you’d like your book to look professional, you might be wise to get the help of an experienced book designer. You can choose to go for a simple design package (less expensive) or go all out for something more elaborate, including the publication and distribution of your book at amazon – depending on your needs, your preferences and your budget.
- Do you have an idea for the cover of your book? Again, you can go it alone… or you can ask a cover designer to work with you, providing a couple of alternative sketches for you to select from.
