Services for authors

Authors – the route to publishing success is a complex one. There are so many books self-published these days as well as those published traditionally. Ensuring your book is the best it can be and that it is promoted well is where we come in. We offer a multitude of services to ensure that your book reads well and that you are choosing the right niche if self-publishing. We look at the potential of your book and endeavour to place your book so that it takes centre-stage in a crowded marketplace.

So what do we offer?

We provide professional manuscript critiques, editing and proofreading, ghost-writing services, and in-depth book promotion services. We can guide you long before you have even thought about the book marketing aspect. Our services are varied. You can request that we take over the whole publishing process, or, simply select the services you need when you need them. Our aim is to make the route to publication success as seamless as possible.

Book Genius Publishing Services

The Book Genius

When you first start writing and publishing books, you may worry about the costs as editing and proofreading and book marketing can soon lead to the price sky-rocketing. We created our Book Genius service with three levels of service – choose from our Silver, Gold, and Platinum service and each provides a variation of editing and proofreading, manuscript formatting, press releases, descriptive blurb, categories, and keywords and so on. We also provide book marketing to give your book that all-important first push. Take a look here.

All the services are available separately. Just email us if you are unsure as to your needs: contact@creative1publishing.com

Professional Manuscript Evaluation Service

Evaluation
Manuscript Critique

How well-written is your book? Are you confident that your book is ready for publication? While you should have belief in your manuscript, it really does pay to have it evaluated prior to publishing as it is so easy to miss elements that could lead to negative reviews. It is also difficult to spot any errors when you are so focussed on the story-line. We often see character name changes, plot holes or find characters are 2-dimensional. This service is one of our most popular and helps to identify any issues. Want the full manuscript assessed? No problem. However, we are happy to assess the first chapter or you can have chapters 1-3 assessed. Click here to find out more.

Editing and Proofreading Service

Editing Service
Editing

Whether you have written a novel or non-fiction book we can help. Our editing and proofreading service provides an in-depth service and assesses the structure of your writing, line by line correction, or we can provide developmental editing. If you would like to know more, click here for details.

Literary Agency

We operate as a literary agency in the non-fiction SELF-IMPROVEMENT niche. We are happy to receive emails from authors looking to gain traditional publication. If you are looking for representation, please email us and mark the subject line – Literary Agency Request. Provide a brief summary of your book and your intended audience.

Press Release

Book marketing

You probably thought writing your book was difficult but, what you possibly didn’t consider was the agonising pain of book promotion. Rest assured, you are not the only author to find it a daunting task or to ponder the starting point.

With so many books out there, it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd. Never underestimate the power of a professional press release.  Our service is highly-targeted and serves to create a buzz about your book. We take the time to get to know you and to develop a strong angle to ensure your book is in the spotlight. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that press releases are only for the celebrity authors. The media is hungry for new stories and we can help identify vital trends and areas.

Book Proposal

Book Proposal Service

Would you like to have your non-fiction book published traditionally? We can help you to catch the eye of a publishing house or agency if this is the direction you would like to take. We craft tightly-written non-fiction book proposals to help you take that next step. The cost is £95 – usually, £150 Contact us here.

Your book will be seen by over 36,000 book lovers. Send us the details of your book to contact@creative1publishing.com.

Add to Book Promotion Sites

We try to make book promotions as easy as possible. We have listened to authors and work on helping to create an author brand. Books are placed with the book marketing sites that really deliver. There are so many sites providing book marketing opportunities but not all work. We streamline the process saving you time and money. As authors and editors, we know the book promotion and publishing industry inside-out. Yes, we keep our fingers on the pulse of the industry as a whole. As such, we’ve identified what is needed if authors really wish to sell more books.

We know that people do not always have time to search for the best sties and so, we do this for you. We also upload all the details to each of these sites. This saves you 2-3 hours typically. We charge £25 per hour and so, a maximum of £75.

Please note that this does not include the fees that some book promotion sites charge.

We will always discuss this with you prior to starting so that you retain full control. We cannot stress how effective this service is so that you gain many more downloads and this, in turn, leads to coveted book reviews.

Creative1 Publishing Book Promotion Sites

We have also developed our own book promotion websites where you can market your book to a wide number of readers.

Book Backstories

Book marketing

Readers love the inside scoop on a book and what could be better that authors who share the inside workings of their imaginations with those who may wish to purchase their books? Book Backstories is highly visual but we need your words to promote your book, after all, no-one knows your book like you do. Please take a look at the Book Backstories website and follow the guidelines for authors. It is also wise to review the books that are promoted there already so you can know what is needed. Think of it as a sales page for your book.

5 Reasons to Read

Book promotion

Readers need to be convinced that your book is going to be a compelling read before buying it. So, to advertise on this site, you need to think of 5 reasons as to why someone would love it. This may sound difficult but it is not.  After all, you’ve spent so much time laboriously conjuring up those words so to intrigue, inform, and captivate. It’s time to ignite your imagination and set up a book promotion with 5 Reasons to Read. It costs just £5 to promote your book which is a small investment to have your book visible to book lovers. Do a little research on 5 Reasons to Read and see what others have come up with.
