EBOOK CREATION AND DISTRIBUTION

Your eBook/Kindle will be available on all major eBook retailers (Amazon, BarnesandNoble.com) in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, India, Japan, Mexico, and Australia. eBooks include all relevant copy tailored to each retailer, including samples, screenshots, and keywords.

PAPERBACK DISTRIBUTION

Pinnacle Point Publishing will ensure your book will be available in paperback print-on-demand format, distributed through the CreateSpace retail channels. CreateSpace distribution assures that your book is available for purchase at physical retailers (Barnes & Noble) and libraries worldwide.

OPTIONAL HARDCOVER PRINTING & MANAGEMENT

You also have the option, at no additional charge, to have a hardcover as well. We will design and layout the hardcover, and manage all printing and distribution. We can also provide fulfillment services if necessary.

COPYRIGHTING AND CATALOGING

Once complete, your manuscript will be registered with the United States copyright office. Your book will also be registered in Bowker’s Books In Print database and will be assigned all ISBN, bar, and BISAC codes necessary for retail distribution.

PUBLISHING IMPRINT CREATION

Your book can be published under a custom imprint with a name of your choosing, or if you apply, it can be published under the Pinnacle Point Publishing imprint.

AUTHOR PHOTO

A great author photo is a powerful tool. We can recommend a professional photographer to take your headshot. If you already have excellent professional photos, we will happily use them instead.

AUTHOR MARKETING MATERIALS

Our copywriting pros will craft an engaging author bio and book description to ensure your book is interesting and appealing to your ideal readers.

GRAPHIC INCLUSION

We can include up to 25 graphics in your manuscript, which you provide us. Additional graphics can be added for an extra cost.

50 FREE COPIES

You will receive 50 free copies of your book to use as you like—for keepsakes, gifts, or promotional purposes.

MARKETING CONSULT

Our Author Marketing team will get on the phone with you and help you lay out a step-by-step marketing plan that will ensure you successfully launch your book and achieve your goals.

MARKETING COURSE

As part of this consult, we will also provide you with free access to the Pinnacle Write Publish & Profit Video Course. This includes detailed instructions and templates to help you through every part of your book marketing, including generating media attention, leads, and raising your visibility with potential clients.

Optional Add-Ons

EDITING

Depending on your editing needs, we’re happy to help. Our editing team, who’ve spent decades in book publishing, edited thousands of books and written several of their own, can do any of three different edits.

The “Structure & Evaluation Edit” ($3k) includes a full read and an editorial overview with global structure and overall manuscript evaluation notes.

The editor reads the manuscript through once, assessing structure, flow, completeness, and overall quality. The editor makes notes of all problems or areas of concern. Valid for manuscripts up to 50k words. Above 50k, add $100 per 5k words.

The “Flow & Content Edit” ($6k) In addition to evaluating the structure, the editor reads and carefully edits the manuscript with an eye on the completeness, flow, and construction of ideas and stories, working paragraph by paragraph and chapter by chapter. Valid for manuscripts up to 50k words. Above 50k, add $600 per 5k words.

 

The “Complete Editing Package” (custom quote) In addition to reading the manuscript with an eye on the completeness, flow, and construction of ideas and stories, the editor will read each line and provide suggestions and edits on each line in the book.

For all three edits, we say that “we will hurt your feelings before we let you publish a bad book.” You will get a fair but an honest evaluation of your work and how it can improve so that you can have the best possible book.

AUDIOBOOK — $6,000

Pinnacle Point Publishing can facilitate the creation and publication of an audiobook version of your book. The audiobook will be recorded by a voice actor at a professional studio and available for purchase on Audible.com, Amazon.com, and iTunes.

BOOK LAUNCH — $12,000

We can work with you to create an end-to-end marketing campaign for your book, that will include publishing content, generating media attention, booking you on podcasts, managing ads, and organizing all the details to ensure your book reaches your target audience and positions you as the authority in your field. Full details upon request.

How the Pinnacle Point Publishing Process Works

These are the steps we use to publish your book:

Who Should Use Pinnacle Point Publishing?

WHO SHOULD
  • People with a finished manuscript

  • People writing non-fiction books (or possibly business parables)

  • People who want a high-quality book

  • People who are willing to invest the time and money necessary into quality

1. Consultation call with your Publishing Manager

You will be paired with a Publishing Manager, who will be your main point of contact throughout all aspects of our process.

Once you’re ready to get started, you’ll consult with your Publishing Manager. Typically, this call will last about an hour, and you’ll answer questions like these:

Q. What are your goals for your book?
Q. Who is your audience?
Q. What do you envision your book cover will look like?
Q. What type of interior layout would you like for your book?

Your information will be assembled into what we call a “North Star” for your book, that will be used to guide all of the creative decisions throughout the process.

2. Manuscript Review

Once you submit your manuscript to your Publishing Manager, we’ll review it to ensure we have everything we need to get started:

  • Final locked title and subtitle

  • Final locked manuscript (including foreword, dedication, and acknowledgments if desired)

  • Any graphics, illustrations, or photos

  • Draft book description

  • Draft author biography

  • Author photo

We’ll review the manuscript looking for formatting issues, like misidentified chapter headings.

3. Cover Design

Everyone says that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but that’s not realistic. As an author, you should absolutely judge your book by its cover, because your audience will.

Cover design starts with a call with our Creative Director, specifically to discuss your book cover. She will help you refine your thinking and get clear on a few ideas for your cover.

The designers will then develop a series of cover designs. These will be initial concepts so that we can understand your direction more clearly.

We will schedule a phone call with you to review the designs and understand what you do and do not like about them. Based on your feedback, we’ll iterate on the design until we land on the perfect cover for your book.

Once you love the front cover design, your publishing team will create the spine and back, which includes your book description, author biography, and author photo, if you like

4. Copywriting & Proofreading

Back covers and book descriptions matter! A good book description and author bio are powerful tools. Our copywriting team will revise yours to maximize their marketing impact.

We will also proofread your manuscript to ensure there are no spelling or grammar errors.

5. Interior Layout Design

Please do not underestimate the importance of a great interior design. At Pinnacle Point Publishing we’ve seen many books with great manuscripts and amazing covers that suffered from a horrible interior. Your interior defines the reading experience for your audience.

As with the cover design process, we welcome your feedback on the interior you envision. Your book’s design can be modeled on any other book’s font choices or graphic styling—even the margins, page numbers, and sidebars, which will be blended by your designer with your book’s cover styling to create a cohesive reading experience from start to finish.

6. Final Review of All Content

Our promise to you is that we will never publish a book that you are not 100% satisfied with.

At this point, you will have already locked your content and your layout will be ready for final review.

 

We’ll share a PDF of your book’s interior, which will be exactly how your book will appear in print. You’ll be able to make adjustments to the layout, such as page breaks and graphic placement.

We will have a final review phone call where you sign off on everything before we move onto the next step of publishing and distribution.

7. Marketing Consult

Our Author Marketing team will get on the phone with you and help determine the exact best way you can ensure your book gets in front of the readers you want. We will help you lay out a step-by-step marketing plan that you can then execute.

As part of this consult, we will also provide you with free access to the Scribe Marketing Course. This includes detailed instructions and templates to help you through every part of your book marketing, including generating media attention, leads, and raising your visibility with potential clients.

8. Publishing and Distribution of Your Book

Your publishing team will work with you to determine your distribution goals and retail channels—whether you want to be exclusively on Amazon or available on as many international platforms as possible, they will provide the best options for you, handle all account and file creation, and upload your book in preparation for your launch.

You will get a proof copy of your book to make sure it’s printing beautifully, and on your say-so, we’ll send your 50 free copies to you. You’ll also get all of the electronic source files for your book.
