About the project
In 2013, Warren came to us with a 10,000 word manuscript to be converted into ebook for distribution.

Wedesigned the front cover and completed the ebook conversion, then distrubuted it to our usual vendors.

Some time after the ebook conversion process, Warren asked us to create a print layout for his book to be distributed via print-on-demand. We then readied the book for print-on-demand. We used the style and design that had already been established in the ebook and adjusted the front cover for print. Then wecreated and laid out the interior pages to suit the cover. During the print layout process, care was taken to ensure styles of headings and font choice was consistent with the genre of the book and style of the cover.

There were no images in the content which made both the print and ebook projects a very simple and straightforward process.

About six months after the print book was completed Warren came to us with an updated manuscript with an additional 20-30,000 words. His short story had been developed in a novella. We provided a thorough line edit in tracked changes. Once the edit was complete we then undertook a proofread to tidy up the manuscript. the next step was to re-do the ebook and print editions.

The next step was to re-do the ebook and print editions. Warren had a new size in mind for his print book so we re-laid it out for print at a smaller book size. We adjusted the design to better suit a novel and the sci-fi genre. The ebook conversion followed smoothly on from that and both ebook and print book were re-distributed with updated metadata.
