Your self-published book is your baby; it’s precious to you.
We understand that. Let us help you to deliver it safe and well into the hands of your readers.
Editing and Proofing
If a reader finds your book rife with spelling errors and bad grammar you can expect an immediate negative reaction, and poor reviews. It takes only one or two such poor reviews to badly affect your sales. Don’t take the risk. We carry out professional checking of the spelling, grammar and consistency of your text. Don’t rely on your dumb software-based spell-checker and even dumber grammar-checker if you want a professional result!
Book Design and Publication Services
If you are looking to produce a print version of your book, then you need a professional designer to lay it out with a critical eye, format the text, and implement the myriad of details which are required to make your book a quality production. Selection of fonts; font sizes; headers and footers; page imposition. Getting these details right is very important. Rightword can provide these design services for you. We have worked with CreateSpace, Lightning Source, and Amazon.
If you want to create an ebook version, we can help there as well. Even though there is less control over layout and typography with an ebook, design is still very important. We have considerable experience in generating clean, standards-compliant ebooks from manuscripts, and can help you through submitting your book to Amazon, Kobo or Smashwords.
Whether you want to self-publish your book as an ebook, as a traditional hard-copy printed book, or as both, I can do all of the hard work of preparing, formatting and submitting your manuscript to ensure the best-looking and easiest-to-read result.
Whether in print or in ebook format, your book needs to look professional and attractive. Many readers do in fact judge a book by its cover. An interesting and intriguing cover makes a potential reader stop and consider your book among a host of others. Poor cover design is all too common with self-published works. We can help you find, license or commission a striking image and carry out a complete cover design for you.

The look of the interior of your book is just as important as the cover. It needs to be attractive and above all, easily readable. We can help you choose fonts and decide on margins, header styles and everything else that is required.
