PROSPECTIVE AUTHORS and CONSULTING SERVICES
Need help in completing your manuscript? We can do that as well. Mr. Linscott offers book editing services, proofreading, research, etc., for an hourly fee.
In order to get your manuscript published you need it to be formatted properly for the desired book size. If you need help, I can do that.
FORMATTING: I have experience in formatting manuscripts, in Microsoft Word format, to fit any size book, with multitudes of formatting sequences, to include inserting photo images, working with tables, bullets, numbering, and paragraph formatting. I have 21 years of experience using MS Word.
PROOFREADING: Have a manuscript all ready (or so you think) but just can't look at it one more time. Perhaps you need an outside eye to go over it as well. I have 7 years' experience in proofreading documents, so if you need the help, I can do it.
INDEXING: I have been indexing books for 24 years now, and still going strong. My largest family history is 2,500 pages in size and includes a 335-page multi-layered index. I can index Word documents directly, or, if your manuscript is in paper, I can still index it in Word (manually; no tagging), and format the index to match your prepared manuscript.
BOOK COVERS: For my own book covers I use BookCover Pro software (http://www.bookcoverpro.com) and enjoy it a lot. All of Sam Teddy Publishing's books were created using Book Cover Pro software. I am not familiar with, nor can I use, the sophisticated programs like Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Adobe InDesign CSx, QuarkExpress, or anything like those software programs. If you want your cover done using something like those software packages, may I suggest you contact Todd Engel at Engel Creative (http://www.engelcreative.com/). Simple book covers, and I can help.
My rates for the aforementioned consulting services are very reasonable, but please do not send me any manuscript without first contacting me regarding the work. The going market rate for these services is $35-$50 per hour (my rates are quite a bit less than that), so go ahead, check around. You'll be back.
We are a small company and have a small marketing target. All of the books published by Sam Teddy Publishing are published in softcover, perfectbound.
Note: Please do not send your manuscript without first contacting us. Unsolicited manuscripts may not be returned. Sam Teddy Publishing does reserve the right to reject any manuscript. Please, drop me a note before sending anything.
