If your manuscript is selected for publishing, Hawes & Jenkins will guide you through the following steps to becoming published:
Publication Advisors to Guide You: On day one, you will be paired with an experienced Publication Advisor (PA) who will explain all the details of the publication process, answer questions, give you expert advice, and lead you through the entire journey to becoming a published author.
Comprehensive Book Editing to Fine-Tune Your Work: Our skilled editors go through our manuscripts line-by-line to ensure the sentence components are not only correct, but also engaging for the reader. We do not change your story—we act as an extra pair of skilled eyes to produce a top-quality product.
Page Layouts That Keep Readers Captivated: A graphic page designer will create a page layout unique to your book so that the text, images, tables/charts, and illustrations display on the page in a precise format to skillfully communicate your message. Our goal is to make each page turned a pleasing reading experience.
A Cover That Pulls Booklovers In: A book is often judged by its cover—don’t settle for a template-based jacket for your distinctive story. Our staff of talented and passionate designers will ensure that your book has a one-of-a-kind cover that speaks to the reader.
Illustrations That Tell a Story: We believe that children’s books play a crucial role in the development of a child. Our award-winning illustration team creates colorful, expressive illustrations to enthrall readers of all ages.
Top-quality Book Printing and Binding: We offer hundreds of combinations of book sizes, paper types, and covers for our publications. We believe it’s important to not only have great content, but present it in a format that readers want to hold in their hands. All our printed book editions—softcover, cloth bound/dust jacket, and casebound—are printed on high-quality, acid-free archival paper with crisp ink application that holds up for years to come.
Mobile Device Integration for the On-The-Go Reader: eBooks are here to stay, and for good reason—they provide a tremendous reading experience. We convert all our printed books into responsive, digital eBook editions that look great on any mobile device, tablet, computer, or eReader. Your book will be available in various digital formats on all major platforms such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Apple iTunes.
ISBN and Barcode for Easy Stocking by Retailers: Assigning a unique ISBN number ensures that any retailer can easily order the book to place on their shelves. We will obtain an ISBN and barcodes to allow the book be stocked by both brick-and-mortar and eBook retailers.
Your Story Remains Yours: Hawes & Jenkins guarantees that 100% of the ownership and rights will stay with the author. Our authors retain complete ownership of their original work and all parts that we create during the publication process.
Author-Focused Royalty Structure: It’s no mistake that we purposely structure the royalty output to be author-centric. It’s the right thing to do. The percentage of royalties earned by our authors is amongst the highest in the publishing industry.
