PREP

Media Assets/Manuscript

You send your manuscript (as word doc or pdf) to our secure Dropbox. We check the manuscript to make sure it’s complete, reformat it if it’s double-spaced, and import it into InDesign, the book designing software.

You send all your media assets (video, audio, photos, graphics, drawings, illustrations) in their clearest (highest quality) format to our secure Dropbox. We also analyze all your media assets, improve them as needed for clarity and quality, and import them into InDesign. If needed, we will create videos, audio narration, and any other assets that you and we discuss and agree upon.

DESIGN

The Look & Layout

We will design 2-3 sample chapters of your enhanced eBook so you can envision all its elements: book cover, title page, icons, fonts, style, A/V, graphics, animations, etc. You will review and approve the design.
