    Free Evaluation

    Our free evaluation is tailored to help authors establish what stage their book is at and which of our publishing packages would be most suitable for them.

Contained on the feedback form is the following information;

    • An overview of the plot
    • The book is given a ‘Mood’ describing how it makes the reader feel
    • Where the book is set
    • Who are the main characters
    • A description of the books target audience
    • Further notes on grammar, editing tips and much more

    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.

    ISBN & Barcode

    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

    Proof Type

    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.

    • PDF email proof (several of these can be exchanged while we iron out corrections and edits)
    • Loose leaf proof (an unbound version of your book)
    • Hard copy proof (a fully bound and printed copy of your book)
    • Final ready for publication proof (a copy of the signed off text and cover, as the book would be sold)
