The five major phases of our ebook publishing services are described below.
You’ll start in the preparation phase with a pre-publishing consultation of your proposal with publisher David Mason. HMG ePublishing has several packages and paid services you can choose from, independent of any package. After a pre-publishing consultation, you can partner with HMG ePublishing to publish your ebook. If your manuscript isn’t quite ready, we’re available on a consulting basis to help you get it ready for publication. When you partner with HMG ePublishing, you will advance to the next phase.
The production phase usually starts within a month of receiving a full proposal, often much sooner. Our decisions are based mainly on the freshness of the topic, how well it fits in with our list, how thoroughly and authoritatively you cover it, the quality of the research and writing, and the likely marketability of the ebook.
The promotion phase generally starts three or four months before the release date and continues for a short period thereafter. It includes giveaways, advertising, content creation through blogging, author interviews, author events, direct mail marketing, email marketing, pre-order announcements, and other marketing strategies. The goal is to create as much anticipation as possible for the release of your ebook.
Every ebook needs distributors. The distribution phase of ebooks and paperback books is usually handled together through Print-on-Demand or Digital-first publishing. We partner with Ingramspark and other major aggregators. In the case of print versions of your, they will contract with a printer first, who will then coordinate with a warehouse distributor. In either case, the digital files of the cover and interior will be uploaded to the distributor/printer, who then prepares the files for printing and distribution to numerous online retailers.
Every ebook must fulfill the reasons for its preparation. The fulfillment phase of our republishing process is usually handled by evaluating the total epublishing process to assess whether the deliverable fulfilled the author's objectives and service expectations. We partner with Ingramspark and other major aggregators. In the case of print versions, they will contract with a printer first, who will then coordinate with a warehouse distributor.
