Step-By-Step: Publishing

6 Steps To Publishing with New Dominion Press!

Step One: Select Your Publishing Package

The first step in self-publishing your Christian book with New Dominion Press is selecting one of our Publishing Packages.

Our comprehensive publishing packages come with an extensive collection of features that are essential for any published author, and we are ready to help you build the perfect package for your needs.

Don’t worry if your manuscript isn’t completed. We know that writing your story can take some time. We are ready to help you through the writing process. Our Editorial Services can help you prepare, review, ghostwrite, translate, edit and much more!

Step Two: Submit Your Files

The second step is to submit your manuscript, graphics, author photo, and any other elements you want included in your book. Once you sign up to self-publish with us you will have 24/7 to access to our online Author Center.

NOTE: Before submitting your files, please review our Manuscript Preparation Guidelines and the Submission Checklist. Our publishing guidelines will help you move through our production process with ease!

Questions? Project Coordinators are available during standard business hours to answer any questions you may have.

Step Three: The Production Process

Once you submit your book files, your book officially enters the pre-production process, and we review all of your files to ensure they meet our guidelines. If there are any issues with your files, we will contact you immediately. The production process typically takes about 90 days as long as all your files are submitted correctly and meet our standards.

Once your files are approved in pre-production, we then begin the design process. Your manuscript will be typeset based on traditional typesetting standards and create a custom book cover based on the questionnaire and feedback you have provided. New Dominion Press does not believe in template cover designs. It is important to choose a recognized and respected publishing company.

Step Four: The Book Review Process

Once we have completed the first round of your book interior and cover designs, we will post these to your Author Center for your review. This is where you can catch any last minute spelling errors and dot those I’s and cross those T’s. Once you have reviewed your book and made your corrections, it’s time for you to approve the production process.

Step Five: Completing and Finalizing Your Book

Once your book is approved, we finalize all the parts (interior, cover, spine and back cover) to create one complete book out of its many parts

Step Six: Your Book Goes Live!

New Dominion Press makes your book available to the largest distribution network of 71,000 retail and library customers globally, plus online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble along with many other online bookstores. We will also have our sales & marketing experts available to consult with you on how to sell and market your book.
