New Age Publishing offers these services separately to our Publishing Programs.
Manuscript Appraisal & Coaching Call....
This comprehensive service includes an in-depth assessment of your manuscript which highlights any issues with Content, Chapter flow, Context, Repetitions and Structure. This is an essential service especially if you are looking to submit to literary agents or if you want to become a professional author in the world of Self-Publishing. In the coaching call we will offer advice and guidance to help you prepare your manuscript to the highest standard.
If you are struggling with your writing, or if you are confused by the minefield of the publishing options available to you, or if you need information on any part of process, then a coaching session is just what you need. During our hour long session we will instruct and guide you in whatever areas you need help with to ensure that you can proceed with confidence and knowledge. Coaching session can be held in person, via video call or phone call.
Manuscript Proofread & Corrections....
This comprehensive service checks and corrects all Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation within your manuscript. This is an essential service especially if you are looking to submit to literary agents or traditional publishers as they will not even read a manuscript full of errors. Readers will not engage with a book if it does not look professional, and therefore whether Self-Publishing or Traditionally Publishing, professional proofreading is an important criteria.

Bespoke Custom Designed Book Cover....
This is the one time the old adage "Never judge a book by it's cover," is obsolete! In the world of publishing all books are judged by their covers, this is the first thing a reader will see, and within three seconds they will decide to look further or not! Our Book Cover Design service is completely unique to each author, and more importantly our authors have complete control and authority on the choice of their image. All our authors work personally with the designers to create a professional and genre relevant cover that will grab readers attention. We are unique as a company in offering this individual service. Many self-publishing platforms use stock images, the downside to this is that there could be other books out there that have the same cover image as you, which is why it is essential to create your own.
Manuscript Comprehensive Structural Editing....
This comprehensive service includes an in-depth assessment of your manuscript which highlights all issues with Narrative, Plot, Characters, Chapter flow, Context, Repetitions and Structure. This is an essential service especially if you are looking to submit to literary agents or if you want to become a professional author in the world of Self-Publishing. Our authors work personally with the editors and all edit suggestions are used with easy to use Track Changes and returned to the author with an advice sheet. All our authors are supported through each stage.

Book Interior Layout, Design & Formatting....
This is one of the most important services in the process of making your book look professional to your readers. Presentation is key to how the pages flow within your book, and to make sure any images you may have are expertly placed to provide the best experience for the reader. Our designers will work with you personally so they can emulate the vision you have for the interior of your book. All typesetting presentation is important, but getting this right is especially essential if your book is a children's book or a book of poetry, or where images represent the essence of your book. The more professional a book is presented, the more credibility the author will receive.
