PRE-PRODUCTION SERVICES

We don't mind sharing our acquired industry knowledge or trade secrets to ensure you don't get entangled in paying overpriced publishing or marketing fees, be left alone and still get insignificant author royalties. We now have helped a number of authors at various stages in their publishing journey, so go ahead and benefit from our experience, because your book deserves everything it would get at a traditional house; the expertise, the attention, and the sincere dedication. Our services are developed by industry pundits and seasoned veterans. We always take into account and consideration what the publishing industry requires and what the readers seek in a well-published book.

​​

From Cover Design to Interior Layout

We know how it is to pour your heart and soul into your book, page by page, and  'words' are not that easy to conceive. We believe, after the many hours you put into your book, you wouldn't want to just dump it into a book factory that will churn your masterpiece out into another 'look-alike' book like that of the many that are already out there. We believe that every book is a work of art, and each page contains words from the heart. It should look like one! Every book is unique and has a voice of its own. You owe it to yourself, to your book,  and to your readers. Give your book the individuality and personality it so deserved.

Your readers and book retailers would want to see a 'real' book and not just another replica like that of the many other replicas out there. Stand Out. Be unique.

 

Illustration

We have in-house studio artists and professionals in our network who are talented, skilled and seasoned publishing people to capture your vision fully, and together with your guidance create illustrations that reflect your books' unique voice and style.

Editing

Regardless of your publishing goals, the quality of your work matters—no one wants to read a book that is riddled with typos and grammatical errors. Regardless of your book's content and message, simple errors in punctuation and grammar will cause the reading community to lose trust and respect for your book.  Your gift is to write, and ours is to polish your book.

PLEASE NOTE: We stand as your support crew, and as your guide, if during the design process we notice multitude of errors, we will let you know of our findings and give you the needed time to rectify. The books you see on the shelves of bookstores published by trade publishers have undergone a minimum of three levels of edit. An extra TLC wouldn't sink the boat, so every book that we work with undergoes PROOF READ without any extra cost to our authors. Fifth Pillar Books will always put your best foot forward. As a company, we feel the responsibility to guide our authors to succeed. If the recommendation is for core edit e.g. line edit, and you decide to hire our in-house editors, we prefer to discuss the process with you before any decisions be made.

 

PLEASE NOTE: A virtual assistant for authors (VAFA) is already assigned to your book project when you select the package option during the publishing stage. Please see the list of work items of VAFA  and inclusions of your package.

Our cover designs are rendered to life by a professional  digital studio/book artist who understands the basic elements of a great cover design; relevant, unique and a ‘cover that speaks.’ Stand Out. Be unique. No cookie cutter.

When you submit your manuscript to us for publication, we provide  PROOF READING without any cost. If during the design process we notice multitude of errors, we will let you know of our findings to give you the needed time to correct or to have the manuscript edited.

A reader can discern between a book’s interior ‘designed’ with a word processor and those done by a professional layout artist & typesetter. A professionally designed interior gives your book the instant credibility.

We pride ourselves that you are always first and always guided with us. From curated publishing to assisted marketing, our packages are designed to offer authors the support, solutions, expertise, and tools they need to  maximize their book's potential.
