Author ServicesSolutions for Today's Author
At Bottom of the Hill our main focus is publishing. We strive to produce high quality books edited by humans (something of a novelty today when dealing with classics) with unique and engaging cover design. Whether we are dealing with new authors, established authors or classic works great effort is given to give the creator and the reader a pleasurable experience.
Our services include;
- Proofreading & Editing – Proofreaders will find misplaced apostrophes, misspellings and misuse of words. Every author needs at least a book proofreader. Editors will look for accuracy and consistency throughout a book as well as misspellings and misuse of words, etc. Deep Editing involves plot refinement, character development and logical flow.
- ISBNs – If all an author needs is an ISBN we can provide one at a fraction of the cost available from Bowker. Currently one (1) ISBN costs $125 from Bowker, the official ISBN distributor. Ten ISBNs are $295. We offer our ISBNs on a limited basis at lower prices.
- Interior Formatting and Cover Design – You provide us with a desired ‘feel’ we provide you with a well formatted interior and cover design.
We offer complete manuscript proofreading and editing to prepare your book for print or electronic publishing. Proofreading involves reading the entire manuscript correcting spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Editing involves these as well as checking for plot & character consistency and providing more in-depth feedback. Every author needs at least a book proofreader.
Interior book formatting and cover design can be worlds unfamiliar to authors. Word processing software are writing tools we are familiar with but when it comes to InDesign, Photoshop and other publishing and graphic suits it becomes overwhelming what to learn and what to contract out. We offer both interior and cover design for authors on a budget and those with deep pockets.
