Stepping into the world of digital publishing can be daunting.
At Heddon Publishing we offer a range of author services to reduce the strain of producing your book, articles, essays or journals, making your written work stand out so that people will notice it and, more importantly, want to read it!
Although we generally take on the full lifecycle of a book, from editing to publishing, we are also happy to offer any of the below services to authors who wish to go on to publish their work themselves.
Developmental editing. Hand-in-hand with proofreading, professional editing will ensure that your work looks and feels right to the reader. We may suggest ways in which your work can be changed; from the order of contents to possible additions or deletions. This will always be in conjunction with you as the author so that you remain in control of your work.
Copy-editing. We can provide expert, tight editing of your text to ensure that it flows smoothly and consistently, ensuring the best possible experience for your readers.
Proofreading. No matter how many times you have read over your own work, you can be sure that it will still benefit from proofreading. Far more than checking for spelling and grammar errors, a thorough proofread will also ensure formatting and content consistency. Trained by the Publishing Training Centre in the UK, we are able to offer qualified proofreading assessments of your work. We will create a style sheet for you and query anything and everything so that you are aware of any alterations made.
Formatting. There are numerous e-readers and tablets out there, and numerous device-specific requirements for formatting. At Heddon Publishing we can take your Word document(s) and transform your work to be e-reader friendly. You may choose to publish solely on Kindle or on a range of devices. We are happy to work with you on this.
Cover Design. We can create your cover for you, to the required technical specifications, whether you are looking for a simple design or something a bit flash – whatever suits your needs.
Publishing. Taking the final step, and putting your writing out there in the reading world! Let Heddon Publishing take this responsibility on your behalf, dealing with distribution agents and all necessary formalities.
Managed services. If you wish to publish using your own imprint but don’t have the time, know-how, or inclination to deal with the practical side of publishing, we can manage this on your behalf.
