Our Publishing Services

Choose the publishing service that's right for your book

SilverWood's complete 'done for you' publishing services 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.

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), Gold (for a higher word count, proofreading, more help with marketing, or complex layouts such as those with a high number of images, footnotes, endnotes), and Platinum service with copy-editing, proofreading, and a higher level of marketing support.

We also offer a Children's Book Publishing (for colour picture books up to 48 pages), or will create a bespoke package for a colour interior, and for books that contain images on every page. Please email the team to tell us more about your work, and request an estimate.

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 or book a complimentary Discovery Call to chat with an expert publishing assistant.
