What Services Are Included In Your Flat
At Whitehallpublishing.com, we provide you with
pre-editing, editing, custom cover design, typesetting,
layout and a college level education in publishing that
you won't get anywhere else!
Among the many steps included in the Premium Level is
a professional pre-publish review of your book. During
this stage of the process, we will read your manuscript
and provide you with "notes" on tone, direction,
characters, marketing strategies and much more. This is
before the formal editing process begins and is designed
to help you take your original manuscript from great idea
to effective, marketable finished work.
This service is just one of several that separates
Whitehallpublishing.com from other companies who offer
'author-assisted' publishing services. Our goal is to help
you create your best work that is also marketable after it
is published. Again, you are in the driver's seat so while
our professionals may provide you with "notes", the final
decision will always be up to you. I can say that without
exception, all of our authors have a "light bulb" moment
when they read the "notes" and realize that their book
could go to the next level of excellence by making some
or all of the changes we recommended.
At Whitehallpublishing.com we are on your side. We
share your dream of creating a great book, and to that
end, we are happy to share with you our years of
publishing and marketing experience to help you create a
finished product that will not only make you proud, but
one that will also have the most impact on your readers
and one that can move your writing career to the next
level. With us, your books will receive:
Complete Professional Editing
Every book at Whitehall Publishing will go through 3 - 4
editing passes before it goes to press. The first two focus
on syntax / grammar / spelling / storylines, etc. The
remaining passes focus on aesthetics (layout).
We will set up your book for the printer with a layout you
will be proud of while we adhere to all the specs required
by the printer.
Professional Cover Design
Complete professional custom book cover design of your
book. We don't use cookie-cutter book covers. Every
book receives a custom-designed cover that is created
from your concept or we can have one of our many cover
designers present conceptual ideas to you for review,
E-mail Support Throughout
Unlimited e-mail access to address any and all questions
you may have about publishing, marketing, sales, book
signings, event planning, book tours, online sales, and
any other questions you may have about the publishing
process. We recommend you invest in a 3-ring binder
and keep all of our e-mail exchanges so you can refer to
that information again and again over the years. That is
why we operate via e-mail, so you have a paper trail and
you don't have to take frantic notes during phone calls.
We will help you obtain pre-publication reviews that will
go on the back cover of your book before it goes to the
printer. This is a great way to encourage sales.

printer and we will shepherd your book through the print
