Hello and welcome to the Jelly Bean Partnership Publishing Programme.

We offer a bespoke service tailored to your work's particular requirements. When you click the button below, you will be asked a series of questions regarding what services you will require. Don't worry, you can always change your mind later in the process.
Ready? Let's begin...
 
Firstly, what is your full name?

 
What is your email address?

 
And a contact number?

 
What is the title of the work you are submitting?

 
Where are you based? If the UK, please specify which county. If elsewhere, just the country will do.

 
Is your book fiction or non-fiction?


 
Is it aimed primarily at...


 
Studies have shown that the average reader will decide whether to buy your book within eight seconds of first seeing its cover. All of our covers are bespoke, entirely unique and created in conjunction with our team of artists. As part of this service, we also would write you an engaging, professional blurb. Would you require our Original Cover Design Service?

     
 
Things like missing page numbers, inconsistent line spacing, irregularly spaced chapter headings, or margins shifting from page to page are easy to miss but impossible to remedy once your work has been sent to the printers. Our experienced typesetters will ensure the highest standards of formatting and typography are maintained throughout your book. Would you like our Professional Typesetting Service?

     
 
A copy editor scours a manuscript for the minutiae: errors of grammar, punctuation and spelling. A line editor focuses on the bigger picture: issues of style and structure; for a novel questions of plotting and characterisation; for a work of non-fiction questions of tone and clarity. Simply put, a copy editor ensures your work reads properly, while a line editor ensures your work reads well.

Many partnership or self-publishing schemes offer copy editing and line editing as seperate services, charging for each individually. At Jelly Bean, we believe this is unfair; an experienced line editor will be able to spot a grammatical error, just as a copy editor will have thoughts on narrative structure or voice. Instead, we take a more holistic approach to editing, looking at the work as a whole, ensuring you do not pay for a service you do not require. Would you like our Comprehensive Editing Service?

     
 
A proofreader conducts the final quality control on a book, checking for anything that might have been missed. Throughout the publishing process, you will have opportunities to proof the document yourself, but at the crucial final stages, the advantage of a fresh pair of eyes (our proofreaders are never involved in the earlier phases of a book's production) cannot be overstated. Would you require our Proofreading Service?

     
 
An ISBN number is required for your book to be sold in retailers and through online outlets. It also ensures that your book is preserved forever in the British Library archives. Would you like ISBN Assignment?

     
 
E-books are predicted to account for one in four of all global book sales by 2018. They provide higher royalty rates than physical books and allow you to reach a global market instantly. Our industry professionals will provide you with a fully formatted e-reader compatible version of your book in two different formats (mobi and epub). At no extra cost, they will also upload it to Amazon, the platform responsible for ninety-five percent of e-book sales in the UK. Would you like our E-book Formatting service?

     
 
Our team of trusted illustrators all have multiple book credits to their name and, following your instructions, will create original artwork tailored to capture the essence of your work. Would you require our Professional Illustration service?

     
 
So you've got your new book in your hands... Now what? To get it to readers of course. But this can be easier said than done. Luckily our industry veterans can provide you with all the material necessary to garner media coverage, as well as helping you to connect directly to your readers. They will write you a press release that will catch the attention of newspapers, magazines, websites and broadcasters; an AI, which provides key bibliographical information for bookshops and libraries; and they will set you up social media accounts on the three most important platforms for a modern-day author: Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads. Would you require our Marketing Package?
