Writing a book is a long, time-consuming (sometimes soul-consuming) process. And only YOU can do it.
But that's really just the beginning. After you've written it, you still have so much to do - sometimes you need it typed into the computer; you need a cover, you should have a professional edit it, and then the actual process of publishing it - whether it's e-publishing, hard copy publishing, or both.
While our focus is on publicity and marketing your book, Author's Herald has a range of talented, professional staff in other areas, as well - including those who help you get your book ready for publishing. In some cases, even after it's been published, you may decide that it could use some refinement - via some fresh eyes editing your project for a re-print or digital re-release; or perhaps an e-pub expert making cerain that your newest version available is formatted properly, with a TOC or Index that jumps to the right page when a chapter/topic is selected.
For these reasons, we offer our services both for the unpublished work and works that have already been published but you decide they aren't quite up to your standards.
We have experts in the areas you need, whether it's Editing, E-Publishing, Hard Publishing, Cover Design, or even Typing/Transcribing.
Often, the answer is NO - if it's already done, the person/company who did it probably did a fine job. However, one of the biggest comments we see about self-published work isn't the story itself, but the editing and/or formatting. Even if the story is great, bad editing, typographical errors, and bad formatting can jar someone out of the story - and that's annoying to readers.
Finally, it's nice to have a book that is not only the best story you can write, but one which is devoid of small errors - it just FEELS good.
Writing a book is tough enough. I know. I've tried it. It wasn't pretty. But what I CAN do is help those that actually HAVE the talent for writing, I can help them share it with the world. THAT, I can do.
