Before receiving your manuscript we will exchange copies of our standard Self-Publishing Agreement. The Author shall retain full ownership of the book copyright. It is the Author's responsibility to ensure he or she has ownership or appropriate permission regarding copyright of any images or extensive text quotations used.
To ensure you prepare your manuscript and artwork correctly please refer to our Author Briefing Guide which you can download here.
Manuscripts should ideally be submitted as a single Microsoft Word document, with a clearly recognisable file name (usually the book title). Any accompanying artwork or illustrations should be supplied separately as print-ready JPGs at a minimum of 300dpi, and suitably labelled to clearly identify their order and position in the book.
Once proofreading or copy-editing has been done, the files will be sent to you for approval, with corrections and amendments shown as Track Changes.
We will always keep back-up copies of the files but, needless to say, we strongly advise you to do the same!
