What makes Front Edge competitive in today’s publishing industry? How do you track revisions when there are so many publishing platforms? What’s your secret?Front Edge Publishing’s internal book creation software, combined with the publishing expertise of our team of editors, marketers and developers allows us to quickly and flexibly respond to new changes in the publishing industry. Our proprietary software significantly reduces the time required to create different versions of each book by treating the book as an adaptable source of content. Instead of locking a book into a static printed version, Front Edge Publishing software maintains manuscripts in an XML form, which allows them to quickly turn into various versions, including print layout and all eBook types. This technology is not used in traditional publishing, which is why other publishers need to devote hours (or days) to the creation of each individual book version, whether it’s a printed book or Kindle.
Does my book need copy editing?Even the best writers need copy editing. Front Edge Publishing provides copy editing as part of production. During the copy editing process, our editors apply formatting that prepare your manuscript for production using Front Edge Publishing software. Front Edge Publishing copy editors are trained in a variety of styles, prioritize the author’s voice and will consult with you on difficult editorial questions.
As our partner publisher, you are also welcome to handle copy editing yourself. If you decide to manage copy editing, the Front Edge formatting process will be significantly faster and you may qualify for a production discount.
