Please note that your manuscript must be edited in MS Word format. Once we receive your completed manuscript
and payment, we will put it into page layout and mail it back to you for proofing, at which stage only minor editing
and corrections can be made. Once your manuscript is ready to submit, choose your Publishing Package and follow
the instructions and Submit Your Manuscript & Payment. All payments go as follows, half up front and the balance is
due upon completion of your book. There is a cost increase for hardcover or larger size books.

After you submit your book, we go to work designing and formatting your book for press. You can typically expect
to receive cover and text proof 30-45 days from the time you submit your manuscript. This is your last chance to
check your proofs and make any minor, last-minute corrections. Remember, your manuscript should already be
proofread before you submit it. Any revisions to your book at this stage will incur additional fees and slow up the
process. The faster you return your proof, the sooner your book will be ready for distribution.

As soon as you sign-off on your book cover design and text proof, we will start the production on your book. In 14
to 21 days your books will be on their way to you. At this point you're ready to start promoting your book! When
you receive your books, you can begin book signings at local book stores, have book parties and more. Be sure you
have enough on hand so that supply can meet demand! We will begin notifying bookstores, wholesalers and web
sites about your book.

If you are new to publishing there are a few items you need to assist you in marketing your book: an ISBN number; bar code;
and copyright. In addition, you may wish to obtain a Library of Congress Catalog Control Number (LCCN) or their Cataloging in
Publication (CIP).

ISBN -International Standard Book Number
A book identification system has been devised to help merchants, wholesalers, distributors, individuals, and libraries locate the
publisher for the books they wish to purchase. The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) system is administered by the
ISBN Agency, which assigns publisher's prefix numbers that are unique to each company. The ISBN number consists of ten digits,
which are separated into four parts of variable length. There is a fee to apply for a set of ISBN numbers, and it typically takes 10
business days for processing an application. The ISBN Agency has helpful information on their site and an electronic application
form for your use. The form can also be downloaded for non-electronic submission.

Please note: when you use one of your ISBN numbers you must report the assignment to R.R. Bowker to be eligible for a free
listing in various directories. This will assist people in finding your company in order to purchase the title. To register your title
with R.R. Bowker's Books In Print, go to

Bar Codes
Bar codes - such as those used in supermarkets - are now used throughout the publishing industry and the ISBN number is the
basis for the bar coding system. In publishing, the coding system is called the European Article Number (EAN) bar code. Bar codes
are generated by computer software using the ISBN and the retail price of the book. Bar code artwork is placed in the lower
right hand corner of the book's outside back cover.
