Self-Publishing Process
After many months, or perhaps years, of writing your manuscript, you are eager to see it in print. SBS Publishing will guide you as your book goes through the many phases of self-publishing. The following overview will give you an idea of the steps involved in self-publishing. Complete information is available by ordering our FREE Publishing Guide. Text Pages The first step in self-publishing your book is to prepare your pages. It will be necessary to have your manuscript proofread, edited, typeset, and proofread again before you send it to us. Book Styles SBS Publishing offers four binding styles so you can choose the one best suited for your book. Perfect binding is the most popular book style we offer. Other available binding styles include 3-Ring, plastic comb, and plastic coil. Cover Design The next step is to develop your cover. SBS Publishing offers several options to help you create a beautiful cover for your book. We can assist you with a cover design, or you may send it to us camera-ready. Optional Features To make your book uniquely your own, choose from our many optional features for your cover, binding, and text pages. In addition, your book may need a few technical aspects, such as a copyright, bar code, or Library of Congress Control Number. SBS Publishing provides services to help you obtain all of these items. Our FREE Publishing Guide includes detailed information on the steps involved in self-publishing your book. After you have selected the options for your book, gather your materials and send your order to SBS Publishing. Upon receipt of your materials, we‘ll prepare the inside pages and cover. You will receive a free proof allowing you to review your book before it‘s printed. After you have approved the proof, your books will be printed, bound, and shipped to you. We‘re here to help you through every step in the self-publishing process. If you ever have questions, our publishing consultants are just a phone call away. 1-888-SBS-888-1
