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 June 10th, we will deliver all upload-ready files no later than by August 30th. This deadline, at the price listed above, is guaranteed for the first two authors who express their interest in this option. After these guaranteed spots are booked, the deadlines, availability and pricing may change for new clients.
2 CLASSIC: We will create first cover options within 2 weeks. Once you send us your final manuscript, we will create print-ready interior PDF file for your novel 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. The whole process takes about 3-4 weeks from start to finish. Currently, we schedule new projects for the first week of August, so as long as you submit your final manuscript by then, you will be able to publish your book by the end of August. To make sure we can work on your book in August when your manuscript is ready, let us know soon, so we can keep the spot reserved for you. If you wish to publish before then, we can add your project to our waitlist and we will let you know as soon as an earlier spot for CLASSIC option frees up.
If you wish to publish your book before those deadlines, we can still create a great cover design for you (see pricing below).
