The image on the first page-from left to right-will include the Outside Back Cover (OBC), followed by the spine, followed by the Outside Front Cover (OFC). The image on the second page will include the Inside Front Cover (IFC), followed by the spine, followed by the Inside back Cover (IBC). The inside spine should be left completely blank. If there is a printed image on the inside spine, the glue used to bind the publication will not properly adhere to the paper and the pages will eventually loosen and fall out. A blank inside spine allows the glue to better adhere to the paper.
A book is simply more than the sum of its parts. It is its own entity. To fashion a great book one must make sure all of the individual elements work together in a synergy of words and emotions, painting pictures and evoking senses in order to put the reader right into the story. To accomplish this, a writer must first create, then rewrite, then revise. And nothing in the world helps a writer do that better than working with a developmental editor — one who knows the pitfalls and problems and can help writers navigate around them. With our Simple Editing and Editing Plus Packages, we will provide editing services focused on strengthening both the content and technical elements of your manuscript.

The very best editors can not only pinpoint the problems in all areas but most importantly, be able to show you how to fix those problems. No writer wants an editor to rewrite his or her book; that’s not an editor’s job. An editor’s job is to help a writer to fashion the very best book his or hers can be. To bring out the gem from under whatever is burying its shine. To make sure the arc of the story contains all of the elements that bring forth a great read. An editor’s real job is to teach the elements of great fiction and nonfiction, while doing all of the above. And it takes a very fine touch to be able to accomplish this while maintaining the integrity of the writer’s own voice. That’s what makes for great editing for your book.

Also, the third round of editing, a professional proofreader will provide a line edit that corrects typos and ensures consistency.Simply upload your manuscript in Microsoft word.
