Our designers will come up with a number of cover designs for you to choose from. Covers are designed based on ideas from the author, a picture within the book, the plot line or even an illustration.
|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.
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.
|Loose Leaf||Hard Copy||Hard Copy|
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;
