    • Academic publishing can be a lengthy process, slowed by internal politics, and fraught with rejection. Do you want to see your work in print?
    • Do you have a dissertation, project proposal, set of articles, or some other academic work that deserves to see the light of day?
    • Do you own full copyright to your work?
    • Are you frustrated by the hoops that you have to jump through to be peer-review published?
    • Do you have a job interview coming up, or an academic application to make, that you’d like to enhance?

    This service is ideal for:

    • Graduates who want to demonstrate their expertise and gain recognition.
    • Academics who want to be in control of the publication of their intellectual property.
    • People who want to disseminate information for any reason.

    This package puts you in total control of your copyright and publishing rights:

    • You chose the selling price – from minimum production cost to whatever retail price you want to set.
    • You receive 75% of nett royalties.
    • Your work is made widely available in print format.
    • You do not have to buy a minimum amount of stock.
    • Your work will remain available for as long as you want.
    • No annual charges, this is a one-off cost.

    What we do for you:

    • Turn your finished work into a format suitable for print.
    • Make it widely available in print format in multiple channels (including, but not limited to, Amazon’s global network).
    • We do not proofread or edit your work, our role is to professionally format, publish, and distribute your work.

    Everyone judges a book by its cover and getting it right is essential. Octavo works with professional designers that know exactly what is right and on trend with the market. They understand the need to target the cover to readers of your genre and know what the booksellers expect and demand. With the right cover your book has the chance to soar so it is worth making an investment and getting it right from the start.

    This package includes:

    • Consultancy to determine the correct style and images for your target market and genre.
    • Two initial design concepts based on your specifications – if you reject them both we’ll do a third one!
    • Unlimited revisions to refine the design of your choice.
    • eBook cover file – front cover only.
    • Full wrap-around cover for your specified size of book for print edition.
    • Use of stock images from our extensive library.
    • You own full copyright on your cover so you can use it on marketing and merchandise as required.

     

     

     

    PLEASE NOTE THAT WE CANNOT SUPPLY THE STOCK IMAGES USED IN YOUR COVER AS THIS IS A BREACH OF OUR LICENCE WITH THE LIBRARY. YOU CAN, HOWEVER, PURCHASE A LICENCE OF YOUR OWN, AND WE CAN ASSIST WITH THIS, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO USE THE STOCK IMAGES IN OTHER PROJECTS OF YOUR OWN.

    We have spoken to authors at all stages in the book writing process. We know what it’s like to be on your journey – all of our coaches and mentors are published authors with experience of the process of getting from an idea to a finished book.

    This initial consultation session can be undertaken over the phone, on Skype, or in person at our offices in Cardiff. In it you can talk with someone who is knowledgeable, approachable, and understanding of your situation.

    The process is as follows:

    1. We will conduct a short questionnaire with you to identify your specific needs, and what you want to achieve from a consultation.
    2. We match your needs with a suitably experienced coach or mentor, so you can ask questions and discuss ideas with someone who has relevant experience.
    3. We arrange a mutually convenient time for you to meet, either in person or virtually as you prefer.
    4. You send any materials, web links, or other references that will provide background to your conversation at least 2 working days prior.
    5. Your coach or mentor will review your needs in advance.
    6. You meet for 90 minutes for a laser-targeted discussion.

    What happens next?

    For some people this one-off consultation is enough to answer your questions, or to develop an idea.

    For others more coaching may be requested, or there may be a need for additional training or information. If your coach or mentor is unable to immediately answer a question they will follow up with the information you want.

    This service offers the opportunity to have your complete manuscript reviewed by a professional editor.  While this is not a detailed edit it will provide a comprehensive report about the structure, plot, characters and commercial potential for your work. The feedback can help with honing your work and increase your opportunities of either acquiring an agent, a publishing deal or deciding to invest in becoming an independent author.

    Having ready your report you may wish to take up the opportunity of booking one to one mentoring with the editor at the discounted rate of £45 an hour.
