What will it take to publish my book?
How long will it take to publish my book?
From the time we receive your press-ready files, it can take up to 90 days to print your book. There are a number of variables to consider when estimating the time it takes to produce your book. Pre-press or the preparation of the typography, page layouts, illustrations, cover and bindery method selected all play a part. Depending on format choices and the kind of manuscript you provide, we may need a week or two to prepare an electronic proof for you to review and approve. Other considerations that may delay or accelerate publication dates include proofreading, editing, illustration and book design. Special requirements such as finished size, paper stock, and bindery methods can also impact the delivery schedule.
After my book has been published, what will I need to do?
We encourage authors to develop a personal marketing plan to supplement publicity efforts once the book hits the market. A successful book marketing plan can include, but is not limited to: holding book signings at bookstores and other venues, coordinating speaking events, distributing marketing materials, creating a book-focused website, sending out a newsletter and writing contributed articles for local news publications. Coupled with your book’s publicity campaign, your personal marketing efforts can play a major role in establishing your credibility as an author and spreading the message about your book. A New Day Publishing offers general consulting with marketing which includes an additional charge.
