Editing

There are three main stages of editing:
structural editing, copy-editing, and proofreading.

Cover Design

The main purpose of a book cover is to sell the book!
Its design should inform as well as attract a reader.

Typesetting

Typesetting is the process of converting a
copy-edited manuscript to a printed book.

Self-publication

Self-publication is the act of independently publishing a book, generally using an online platform.
No social media! No pop-ups, ads, or 'before you go' ploys!
