Why Choose Superior Book Productions
When you choose Superior Book Productions, you can be sure you are working with people who are knowledgeable about all aspects of producing a high quality book. From writing to editing and from layout to printing, we will help you produce a professional and marketable book.
Tyler, our senior editor and founder, has a Ph.D. in English, has published fifteen of his own books, both through traditional and self-publishing, since 2006. Prior to that, he taught writing and English at the university level. Larry, our junior editor and layout artist, has an M.A. in English and has been a professional web designer, corporate writer, and editor/proofreader since 1996. Tyler and Larry met in 1993, when they shared an office at Northern Michigan University as teaching assistants in the English Department while earning their master’s degrees. Their longtime friendship ensures that they work well together. After Tyler published his first book, he hired Larry to design his website, and later, Larry began doing the layout for all of Tyler’s books. When Tyler began helping other authors by editing books for them, he enlisted Larry in assisting authors with their websites and book layout needs, and so Superior Book Productions was born in 2008.
Because Tyler and Larry work well together, Tyler has come to know a lot about the layout process and can guide you as an author in preparing a layout-ready manuscript. Similarly, Larry’s Master’s in English, corporate writing experience, and editing/proofreading work with Tyler means he is more knowledgeable than most layout people about writing. Many editors know little about layout, while most layout people know little about the niceties of grammar and punctuation. With Superior Book Productions, you get a team that is truly cross-trained to understand all aspects of your book’s production.
How the Process Works:
(Read our article on Offset Printing vs. Print-On-Demand for the pros and cons of these decisions)
1If you decide to add content/requirements to the project after the initial quote, it will entail additional costs above the quoted price. We will then either give you an additional quote for the extra work requested or bill you hourly, depending on the nature of the request.
2After the third attempt at an acceptable cover design, you will be billed at our current hourly rate for each new cover design.
3After the third revision, you will be charged at our hourly rate for all additional changes. We will, of course, correct errors at no cost.
