The Superior publishing package is one of our high-end publishing packages, aimed at those authors seeking to give their writing career 100% dedication and commitment, looking to optimise their sales through establishing a good online presence and holding a number of books ‘in stock’ ready for sale.
The Superior publication process involves making the book available as an e-book—through Amazon’s Kindle format—as well as in paperback and hardback format, which will be made available to hundreds of distributors, retailers and wholesalers across the globe, including through Ingram’s Distribution channels, Books In Print1, as well as in the Ingram Advance Catalogue, which targets 13,000 individual book sellers.
One of the most exciting aspects of this package is the completely customised and unique book cover design. You will have direct correspondence with our Design team, who will work with you when developing the most apt and visually appealing cover for your book; you can have as much creative input as you would like or otherwise leave it entirely up to our professional staff. Whichever option you prefer, your book cover will be exactly as you desire3.
Whilst book cover design is in-process, our skilled and competent editors will proofread and copy edit your manuscript (up to 75,000 words) to confirm it goes to print error-free and fulfils your objectives. Typesetting will also be completed, ensuring your book looks professional and will be aesthetically pleasing to your readers.
Upon the compilation of the cover and manuscript into print-ready format by our dedicated team, electronic and hard-copy galleys, as well as a proof copy (paperback), of the book will be generated and sent to you for approval. Upon your confirmation, the work will be documented with the UK Copyright Registration Office; you will be sent a link to your copyright certificate.
At this point, you simply set your retail price and wholesale discount (if applicable), and we do the rest. The book will be assigned two ISBNs (one for paperback, one for hardback), a barcode will be generated, and the book made available for print.
Once officially published, we will then have 25 copies of your book printed and shipped to you in paperback format and 15 in hardback format, along with 150 bookmarks.
Upon the availability of your book, we will give you the option of including your book in Google and Amazon searches—a service that can help readers and prospective customers to find your book, and help to improve your online presence as an author. Subsequently, we will write a unique and targeted Online Press Release, utilising SEO, which will be submitted to 200 different sources through our marketing department.
Finally, as a way of helping to establish an online presence for yourself as an author and for your newly published book, we will create both a video (to be made available through Notebook Publishing’s YouTube™ channel) and pen a Blog entry (to be made available through Notebook Publishing’s official blog) highlighting the release of your book, thus helping to improve exposure for your book. We will then create and maintain an individual author page on the Notebook Publishing website, providing a biography, contact details, a portfolio of published works, and links to where readers can purchase your book(s).
All Superior authors receive royalties due every month2.
All Superior publishing package elements to be fulfilled within 7 working days (excluding manuscript copy editing/proofreading and book cover design).
Purchasing the Superior Publishing Package?
1Timescales will differ in terms of when the book becomes available through Ingram’s partners and/or Books In Print. In the days and weeks following publication, more and more distributors, retailers and wholesalers will make the book available through their own channels/outlets. Notebook Publishing has no direct control of this.
2All royalties to be paid every month, 3 months after sales. For example, earnings from January sales to be paid in April. A minimum of £5.00 royalties to be earned before payment is submitted. A 5% charge for the payment of all royalties is applicable, i.e. for every £1.00, Notebook Publishing reserves £0.10 to cover administration and the processing of payments.
3Once a customised book cover concept has been chosen, three rounds of revisions/changes can be made to the design before subsequent charges apply. Each additional round of amendments will incur a fee of £25.00.
