Do you have a manuscript that you would like to publish, or create as a keepsake book?

Before thinking about committing your work to a publisher – finish your work! This may seem obvious, but may eager authors jump the gun by trying to discuss publishing options before completing their work.

Send the first chapter and synopsis by email to sales@bookwormretford.co.uk. You will usually receive a reply within two weeks. This letter may be to tell you that further work is required on your manuscript or it may be to tell you that you can proceed to the next stage.

The key advantage of using the Bookworm Publishing Service is that you can talk in person and discuss your requirements; you will find the fee charged exceptional value for money compared with other similar services. You can order as many books as you wish (minimum of 20) and you will be able to re-order at any time.

Here are the main steps to publishing your book:

Step One – Finish your work, revise, re-write, seek opinions, revise again.

Step Two – Discuss your requirements in person and get a quote. Your initial consultation to assess your requirements is free of charge and without obligation.

Step Three – Send the whole manuscript for formatting. If you are including photos in your book, have these ready too.

Step Four – Approve the layout of your book, including the cover.

Step Five –  Approve the printed and bound proof copy of your book.

Step Six – Receive your books and hold a party!
