INTERIOR BOOK DESIGN
The interior layout of a manuscript, for print or eBook, is critical to your book. A first time author or self-published one may not know about some of the pitfalls in their layout. Do you know about widows and orphans and how they affect the look of your book? It may not seem significant, however, it makes for a messy layout and can interfere with the pleasure your reader takes in reading. The Traveling Soul Press Team will ensure your book looks professional, well-ordered and easy on the eye.

Well-ordered layout Table of Contents

CUSTOM BOOK COVER DESIGN
The cover of your book is the first interaction you have with your readers. It needs to be original and customized to your work and it needs to catch the reader’s eye. Every book produced by The Traveling Soul Press has a custom cover design that reflects and captures the essence of your book. We know book covers sell books and we will design yours to sell.

The Traveling Soul Press designs book covers for ebooks as well as printed books. For printed books we will create a front, back and spine of your cover formatted to your printer’s specifications. For ebooks the cover will be designed to meet popular ereader standards. For all books we provide you with the image of your cover for use in your marketing efforts.

EDITING SERVICES
If you are self-publishing your book you’ll want to ensure your book looks like it was published by a traditional publisher. Once you have completed your work the most important step to take is having your work professionally edited and proofread.

Copyediting:
A basic edit includes one read of content with tracked changes and comments accordingly.  The editor will be responsible for Spelling, Grammar, Capitalization and Punctuation

Proofreading:
An intermediate edit includes two reads of content. The editor will first be responsible for copyediting. After author review, the editor will then compare revised content against original document to ensure revisions and accuracy. The editor is also responsible for the correction of any outstanding typos and will ensure clarity and consistency.

Content Editing:
An advance edit includes copyediting and proofreading plus goes beyond to ensure content is well-organized. The editor is responsible for rearranging paragraphs, light rewriting and the removal of awkward transitions.
