This project covers steps and completion status for the very core book preparation, printing & publishing process and related approvals. Please track this page to see % completion of your book publishing process and visualize overall progress. This drastically eliminates thousands of email chains we will be involving letting all authors know their project status. And, finally, our associates can concentrate more on working on your project.
Please understand, we do our best to ensure we can send your book to printing ASAP and once we receive approval from you (the author) regarding the final manuscript and the book cover, it will be printed and ready for shipping within a maximum of 14 days.
But, this is very important for you to understand that, UNLESS we receive APPROVALS from you, for any simplest change, we cannot start counting the 14 – day timer. Why? Because we value you and we strive to make you 100% satisfied. How? Imagine, on the very first day of the month you paid us for full and uploaded the manuscript. Now, after we implement the layout settings and do the promised proofreading and editing (as per the package you have paid for) if we do not ask for your approvals, will you be really happy for those unnoticed changes? Even if, one of our most creative senior book cover designer does his very best assignment by delivering a stunning design, you may still choose to pay extra for additional revisions or even complete design changes. How can we send it for printing without YOUR APPROVAL? Now imagine, in case one of our clients is very passionate regarding perfection and has a decent amount of budget fulfilling his/her dream, there can be multiple numbers of payment, approval and change cycles which is undetermined and not easy to predict. So, the urge of having complete satisfaction overrides the project deadline, which is perfectly alright as in the real world, everything is not perfect but some are – like our final delivery and your happiness.
