Pricing and guaranteed delivery deadlines for final upload-ready files are the only differences between ZEN and CLASSIC options. The quality of the files and the support provided along the way are exactly the same. Whichever option you prefer, if you want to meet a specific publishing date, please let us know, and we will confirm whether we can guarantee it.
1 ZEN: We will create first cover options within 4 weeks. As long as you submit your final manuscript by September 1st, we will deliver all upload-ready files no later than by October 30th. This deadline is guaranteed only for two authors who express their interest in booking the remaining spots. After these guaranteed spots are booked, new ZEN spots will be opened for February 2021 (only CLASSIC spots will be guaranteed in the last two months of the year).
2 CLASSIC: We will create first cover options within 2 weeks. Once you send us your final manuscript, we will start work on the interior of your book no later than on September 14th; and the print-ready interior PDF file for your novel will be completed within 2-3 weeks. This includes the time needed to create a layout sample for your approval and then apply the approved design to the rest of the book. When the print version is finished and you wait for your physical proof copy to arrive, we work on eBook files.
These availability limitations do not apply to illustrated children's books. If you wish to publish a different type of book before these deadlines, we can still create a great cover design for you (see pricing below).
