One of the biggest mistakes you can make as an author is foregoing a professional edit of your manuscript. Whether you're shopping for an agent or preparing to publish your work, your writing is expected to be flawless. And while you may have extraordinary confidence in your work, you'll be amazed at how many mistakes go unnoticed once a trained editor gets ahold of it. With that said, there are many forms of editing, each designed to help your manuscript improve in a specific way, at a specific stage in its development.

Nothing kills book sales like a bad cover. You've seen them around, I'm sure. And if you're like most readers, you probably haven't bothered to read them. Your first opportunity to catch a reader's interest in your book is the cover; don't let it be your last. There are many steps in the publication process that an author can take on without killing their book; cover design is not one of them. Let's face it--not everyone is a graphic designer. And not every graphic designer is plugged into the publishing industry. Even a beautiful design will fail if it doesn't appeal to your target genre. Don't let your sales flatline with a subpar cover. Let us design a cover that will give you a competitive edge in your genre.
Design Vault Press treats each book as a unique work of art. Our typesetting and formatting services are designed to get your book looking its best in print and all the latest e-book formats.
A lot goes into publishing a book these days, even after the final product is ready to go. Do you have a publishing strategy? There are different types of ISBNs to consider, each with pros and cons. There are copyrighting procedures. Marketplace options (going 'wide' or exclusive to Kindle) that will shape your ability to market down the road. There are aggregate and niche platforms, pricing requirements and file specifications that must be met precisely. To add insult to injury, even when you do everything right, things still go haywire on ocassion. It's no wonder many indie authors find the process so daunting. Design Vault Press makes it easy to get your book off your computer and into the hands of readers worldwide. No stress, just results.
Audiobooks are a great way to reach a new audience. Let us produce an audiobook that will both wow your listeners and establish a whole new stream of revenue from your book.
BOOK TRAILER PRODUCTION
Video is one of the most powerful tools available to authors today (especially where social media is concerned), yet it remains one of the least exploited in the author community. Book trailers are a great way to get a buzz going for your new book, to reach a new audience for existing books, or to cultivate reader interest in you as an author. A quality book trailer can be used in so many marketing capacities that it ought to be a no brainer. So why aren't more authors putting trailers out? Because producing a quality video isn't for the faint of heart. You need someone with audio/video expertize and an intimate understanding of the message you want to convey. Let us produce a video trailer that will properly showcase your book in all its glory.
AUTHOR WEBSITE DESIGN
Whether you're an established writer or just starting out, an author website can give you a leg up in the industry. A good website will give your readers a place to learn about you and your work, as well as provide a home for your blog, newsletter signup forms and giveaways.
So your book is finally in print and available on the internet. Congratulations! But... now what? Alas, books don't sell themselves. Once your friends and family have bought their share, sales are likely to stagnate. Let us help you develop a promotional plan that will generate sales and reader reviews. We leverage a variety of promotional services to get your book in front of new readers.
Social media is one of the most important marketing tools available today. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time or savvy to keep up with it all. Let us help you find the right audience through target social media campaigns. These campaigns can be customized to reach or even define your reading audience to increase sales and keep your readers engaged.
