Our Services

There are many publishing options now available to you. With the development of eBooks and eReaders, the opportunity to double your audience (readers preferring print and those preferring digital) is available. As such you may wish to release an eBook as a companion piece to your print release or you may decide just to publish as an eBook. Whatever you decide, YPS can help.

Printed books

Copy Edit Proof Read

Editing, design and page layout
Our publishing services include copy-editing, proofreading, page and cover design, page by page layout and printing proofs. If you decide to publish just as an eBook, you will still need to edit and design your book.

Printing and binding
We will advise you on the appropriate paper and cover materials, formats and binding styles. We use both digital and traditional print facilities and will advise you on which is best for you. It is very important to make your book look the same as those produced by mainstream publishers.

Promotion and marketing
Once your book is printed, the work really starts. You need to make sure as many people as possible are aware of your book, and convert that awareness into sales. YPS can help you with the promotion and marketing by giving you advice, suggestions and the tools for you to do it yourself.

The YPD Bookshop – The YPD Bookshop
YPS has an internet bookshop, www.ypdbooks.com, where you can sell your books. Your customers can order your publications from YPS 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from anywhere in the world. This service is now available to independent publishers who wish to distribute with YPS.

Amazon
As you have an ISBN you are automatically listed on Amazon. But selling on Amazon can become complex.
YPS has accounts with Amazon Marketplace and Amazon Advantage.
We can talk you through the various discounts ranging from 20% to 60%.

Distribution
When you start to receive orders you will need to issue invoices, pick the order, pack it carefully to protect the books in transit, and finally organise despatch to your customer. When the payments come in they need to be processed and paid into the bank. There is always the problem of chasing for payment from customers who do not pay promptly. The more successful you are, the more you will have to do!
