The cover

Bespoke cover design comes as standard with all our publishing packages.

Our cover designs are created to offer our authors full satisfaction. So, when you publish with Zaccmedia, you will have peace of mind that your finished book will have the look that will please both you the author, and your readers. At a time when thousands of books are being published, having a good looking cover is important – but also important is having the right title and subtitle. Zaccmedia’s one-to-one service means you will receive a type of book consultancy based on our extensive experience. We offer authors the chance to provide their own cover design brief, or we can surprise you with our own interpretation. We encourage authors to write their own back cover blurb, but can help write or edit it as part of the service. Hard cover options are also available at additional cost upon request.

Back Page Design & Blurb

The back page elements of a book are also carefully implemented… sometimes it should be very simple, or other times it should be more complex.

There are numerous things to consider adding to the back page: illustrations, reviews, endorsements and perhaps details and logo of an organisation your book represents. One vital part of the back page is the “blurb”, that piece of crucial text that inspirationally tells the world what your book is about. Authors are free to supply their own blurb, which we can review, or Zaccmedia can help you write it. Either way, the text should be confident of the books contents and promote it to potential readers. The blurb will form the long description that appears on website bookstores, such as Amazon. Zaccmedia provides an ISBN and barcode for our books, which are registered with Nielsen Agency.

Supporting Graphics

Our publishing packages include a selection of supporting graphics for social media, websites and emails.

Once a book is published you will need supporting graphics to help spread the word that it is available to purchase. For our publishing package we include a selection of promotional images that can be shared on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or on personal blog pages.

Page layout

The interior design is as important, if not more so, than the exterior design. It is where the reader will spend most of their time with your words.

We love giving each book a beautiful page layout. We work through the structure of a manuscript to establish typographical styles for headings, sub-headings, bullet lists, quotes, tables, captions, chapter openers and so on. It helps the reader if we make their reading pleasant, both aesthetically and experientially.

Editing

A properly published book is an edited book. Even today’s most accomplished authors are all rigorously edited to optimise and fine tune their book.

The editing we provide as part of our publishing packages offers a balance of budget and thoroughness. Our editing is often a blend of copy-editing and proof editing in a single sweep. This means a general tidying up of a manuscript, the method of which depends upon the submitted quality of writing. For manuscripts that require a heavy edit, our edit will stick to the basics of  making sure all sentences read correctly, that spelling and grammatical errors are fixed. For manuscripts presented with advanced english writing skills, our edit will focus on thoroughly proofing the text, but will also give time to creating more efficient text, tightening up sentences and improving flow further. Both these methods of editing will significantly enhance a manuscript for final publication.

Promotional graphics

Our main publishing packages include the provision of double sides A5 flyers to help promote your book. Like your book, these are individually designed to suit the project.
