SELF-Publishing services

Copyediting This service is for authors who have a finished book and need someone to comb through that manuscript for one or more of the following mistakes: grammar, spelling, syntax, or style guide errors. Copyediting focuses on errors at the sentence level. It is also known as line editing. Copyediting is a critical step to producing a professional self-published book.

Book Design and Layout This service is for authors who have a completed and edited manuscript that needs to be put in book or e-book format. Our designers will work with you to come up with a book cover design that represents your brand and captures the attention of potential customers. We also offer book layout and formatting services for both hardback and paperback books. And we can output your book in digital formats such as Amazon Kindle, EPUB, iBooks, HTML, and so on.

E-Book Conversion – This service is for authors who have a book manuscript in one digital format, but need it converted to another digital format. We work with all major digital formats, including Amazon Kindle (KF8), EPUB (.epub), iBooks (.ibooks), eReader (.pdp), MobiPocket (.mobi or .prc), HTML (.html), Portable Document Format (.pdf), Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx), and so on.

Proofreading – This service is for manuscripts that have already been copyedited and put into a final format, such as the typeset pages of a printed book or the full text of an ebook. It focuses on grammar, spelling, syntax, or style guide errors.

Ghostwriting – This service is for authors who have a good book idea but don't have time to write a full-length manuscript. At Brigid Book Works, we have an award-winning team of ghostwriters versed in a wide range of specialties. We work with celebrities, politicians, health professionals, international businesspeople, tech gurus, fiction writers, memoirists, and so on. We work hard to match you up with exactly the right person to develop your book.

Developmental Editing – This service is for authors who have a completed manuscript and need it edited for plot/structure issues or gaps; character development, point-of-view, language, or dialogue concerns; style, grammar, or syntax errors; or other contextual problems. Developmental editing focuses on the content of the work, the way it should be organized, and other big-picture issues. With this service, the manuscript is turned over to the hands of an experienced editor, who will do the revisions on behalf of the author before it is self-published.

Marketing – This service is for authors nearing the publication phase. Promotion is a necessary part of any self-publishing plan. At Brigid Book Works, we have many different marketing packages to fit your needs. Please visit our marketing page to learn more.
