At Tucker Publishing House LLC, we assist you with most of the legwork for your self-publishing needs. We will edit, proofread, format for E-book and print, design your spine, front and back cover, assist with your book blurb, and other related tasks in self-publishing.
People underestimate how much work goes into the book before it is ever published. It is a tedious process, and we’ve found that most writers just want to write, and rarely want to edit and format. Tara Tucker, owner of Tucker Publishing House LLC understands this all too well, and is passionate about helping her fellow writers and self-publishers with their book at affordable costs.
When you are self-publishing, you want to get great service without breaking the bank. You’ve come to the right place. Complete our contact form with details of your request and someone will respond within 48 hours.
A good editor is an honest editor. We will not just say your work is great, if it isn’t. That doesn’t help you. We must also be a good fit. We do not accept every client. Email us your manuscript or a synopsis of your book and we will see if it’s something that we are interested in. Likewise, we will offer you a free 5 page edit, and you will see if we are a good fit for you. Your free edit will be returned to you within 4 days (excluding Sundays and holidays)
An edit is not a rewrite. It’s an edit. You will have to approve all changes. All editing is done with the Microsoft track change feature. After editing and formatting it is not unusual to have a change in your page count, so don’t be alarmed if that is the case.
Email your manuscript to us in MS word .doc or .docx format. No other formats will be accepted. We edit fiction*, non-fiction and self-help books.
Your manuscript should be 8 and ½ by 11 with 1 inch margins all round. Also, 12-point Arial or New Times Roman font. The pages should be numbered and double spaced.
Copy/Line and Developmental editing gives input on the actual contents and helps the author with the flow of content. We may have sweeping observations to specific comments. It may require a rewrite of passages and or chapters. Copyediting requires us going through line by line, correcting grammar, spelling, punctuation, flow, clarity, theme, structure, proper word choice, transitions and styling corrections. It may require some rewriting to make it clear or improve organization without alternating the voice of the author. We offer clarity and cohesiveness to the overall project.
Proofreading involves correcting mistakes and inconsistencies only. We review your manuscript to correct errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, and misspellings. We ensure a consistent style is applied in areas such as capitalization, italicization, bullets/lists, abbreviations, hyphenation/dashes, table, boxes and figures, punctuation, and spelling consistency.
Blurb writing (A blurb is a short description of a book, movie, or other product written for promotional purposes and appearing on the cover of a book or in an advertisement.)
Formatting Digital and Print (All editing must be complete before formatting) Formatting includes your table of contents and copyright pages.
Book Cover Design (for Ebook and Print)
ISBN number (An ISBN is essentially a product identifier used by publishers, booksellers, libraries, internet retailers and other supply chain participants for ordering, listing, sales records and stock control purposes. The ISBN identifies the registrant as well as the specific title, edition and format)
