Why is book publishing so challenging?
As a publisher, you successfully attract book projects, but your staff struggles to manage the workload of processing each manuscript to a finished product in a timely manner. You need an easy and effective solution. Look no further!
Peerwith’s Book Publishing Service
Our Book Publishing Service is a flexible and full-service operation which handles the processing of book projects, from the initial author contract to the finished product. In our full service option we engage with freelance experts on behalf of publishers guaranteeing a high quality of service.
We specialize in connecting the right experts to each publishing process. Moreover, we achieve this by providing a platform which facilitates the process: book project requests are posted, qualified experts respond, and publishers and authors decide on the best possible match.
Let us take a look at a typical book publishing project, focusing on just the editorial step. A book project includes, among others, these two services: Book Indexing and Illustration Services.
These services are totally different and are not typically provided by publisher staff and, therefore, need involvement from a freelance expert. The first step would be to select and hire the experts.
- Every academic book needs a sound index. Professional indexers can compile an analytical index for your book, not just a list of keywords. The author is looking for an indexer with the expertise and subject knowledge best suited for their work.
- Professionalize your illustrations to increase the impact of your research. Peerwith experts can create illustrations from scratch or redraw existing ones.
Both services, book indexing and illustration services, require a true collaboration between the author and – in this case – two different experts. Although it is the responsibility for the publisher to hire the experts, there is not necessarily a direct involvement in the collaboration. Obviously, they do want to be in control, see what is happening and make the decision. This is the exact challenge that has been addressed by Peerwith’s Book Publishing Service.
