Six Easy Publishing Steps
Self publishing is now easier than ever with the internet and advancements in printing technology. Let our Publishing Coordinator, Debbi Wraga, walk you through the simple steps of creating a quality book and becoming an independently published author!
Step 1: Decide on which package is right for you. Prepare your pages and make decisions about interior paper and cover coating.
Step 2: Prepare your cover. Your cover provides the first impression of your book. You may send us a press ready digital file or Shires Press can offer you many options to assist with your cover design.
Step 3: Now submit your files via email, online, mail us a CD or stop in with a jump drive. Your setup fee must be paid in full when you submit your files.
Step 4: If you choose the Publishing or Premier Package, Shires Press will provide you with an ISBN number, and bar code.
Step 5: Let us know the quantity of copies you would like printed and the retail price you have decided on for your book.
Step 6: You will receive a proof copy to review and approve. After any changes are made, we will start printing!
