You did a great a job on it now that I got to see your editing work closely and the notes you suggested…

We can develop your texts into an easy-to-read book with clear visual information categories and stylish diagrams that can also be repurposed for presentations and other uses.

Create a Visually Engaging Book

Visual information categories add value to books, because buyers can quickly see that they can get information quickly and find their way back to it without having to read the whole book.

Publish to advance your business goals. We can help you develop an effective publishing strategy. Whether you have finished a draft manuscript or are looking to create a manuscript from multiple company documents, we can help you take it to the next level with our developmental editing services. We can develop your texts into a clear and easy-to-read manuscript with helpful visual information categories such as tip boxes, checklists, and diagrams that can also be repurposed for presentations and other uses.

With our industry knowledge we can also help you with planning decisions such as whether it is best to publish as one book or multiple volumes, the best trim size and design approach for your point of purchase, how to plan for color and B&W economically, and how to incorporate ebooks or eguides.

In this example, the book is created in color, the first print edition is in B&W to save costs, the ebook editions are color (color doesn't effect ebook costs), and book diagrams and tables are repurposed for slide presentations. Throughout the process we can give you cost-cutting tips and publishing best practices for saving time and reducing errors.
