David J Publishing is presently closed for any submissions.
What does David J Publishing offer?
We design the book lay out and create the cover artwork, edit, proofread and prepare your book for publishing in both paperback and e-book format.
If you have artistic skills, or have a designer in mind for your book cover, we are happy to work with you on this option, so long as it is in line with our design standards and vision for your book.
We also provide an ISBN number.
What does David J Publishing require?
In the first instance, we require a brief synopsis, together with the first three chapters – you can make initial enquiry via the Contact Us page on this website with a brief outline. We will respond within 48hrs and advise if we are interested, and what you should do next.
Once we have received your initial submission, it may take up to 90 days for us to respond further.
What happens if we accept your manuscript?
A standard publishing contract will be forwarded for your consideration. It will outline conditions, terms and royalty rates for both paperback and e-book formats.
If you find the contract acceptable, sign and return to us and we will then place your manuscript on our production schedule.
How long from signing contract to publication?
This can take anything up to four months, during which time your manuscript will be edited and formatted to our printer's specifications. Your will then have the opportunity to final proof your manuscript.
Our design team will also produce several cover options. Work will also commence on e-book formatting.
You will then receive a printed proof copy of the book for final approval before going to press.
Once published, where will my book be available?
On publication day your book will be uploaded onto Amazon sites worldwide where it will be available in both paperback and e-book formats.
Although not held in stock by traditional book stores, your book will be available for order on customer request.
Copies for your own personal use will also be available at a substantial discount to the cover price.

With so much competition in the book publishing industry these days you will also need to have a plan to promote your book, tell us how you will promote and market your book, include details of any past marketing / promotions of your materials you may have done.
Do you have a current author website? If you do, please include the web address, along with any social media sites that you can use to market your work.
