|Editing & Proof Reading
Editing & Proof Reading
Occasionally we find that a book needs more than just a proof-reader, it needs an editor. The difference is that proofreading normally focuses on spelling, punctuation and grammar alone, whereas an editor will look out for sentence structure, continuity, repetition, plot holes etc. It focuses much more on the content of the book.
|Choice of Book Size
Choice of Book Size
Allowing you to pick their book size is essential - at Spiderwize the following book sizes are available.

|ISBN & Barcode x2
ISBN & Barcode
It is a legal requirement that all publications that are going on general sale have their own unique ISBN number, the International Standard Book Number is a unique numeric commercial book identifier based upon a 13 digit code, each format of a book needs a separate ISBN e.g. Paperback, Hardback and E-Book of the same title would all need separate ISBNs. At Spiderwize we take care of assigning your title an ISBN and we also allocate the correct bar code to your ISBN number.
|Hard Copy Proof
The proof stage of self publishing is extremely important - it allows the author to check the work that has been carried out by the team at Spiderwize and come back to us with any suggestions, alterations or general comments. We value the proofing process highly and this is the stage that can take some time, we do not want anyone to feel rushed at this point. Depending on the package you have chosen the following types of proof are available.
Handing our promotional material for your book is paramount - at Spiderwize we can design and print marketing material for you specifically for your new book - available marketing material;
100 A5 flyers
If marketing materials are not included in your self publishing package they can be bought at a later stage as a package extra.
