Our Publishing Services
Choose the publishing services package that's right for your book
SilverWood's publishing services packages prepare your work for printing, efficiently taking care of everything from the time we receive your manuscript up to the point of submitting files for print. There’s also added assistance and aftercare when your book has been printed and published. Our services packages aren't 'one size fits all' but include everything we consider to be essential for a high quality, retail-ready book. You can be confident that your book will look and feel as good as anything published by a traditional publishing house.
There are three SilverWood publishing services packages to choose from: Silver (covering all the essentials for a black & white print on demand book, with a colour cover, up to around 80,000 words), Gold (for more complex layouts and for authors who would like added support and marketing tools), and Platinum (our premium package for authors with the potential for high profile). We can also create a bespoke package for a colour interior, and for books that contain more than 80,000-words or images on every page.
The chart below can help you choose the publishing services package which best suits your needs. Alternatively, please drop us a line and tell us more about your publishing project.
