    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.

    Proof Process

    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)
