6 Simple Steps to Finally Finish Your First Draft

a book coach's secrets to generating ideas, organizing chapters, & writing productively


You want a pro publisher
on a budget and a timeline.

You’re on the brink of finishing your manuscript, and you know how powerful this book is. You don’t want to spend years building up your author platform and pitching to traditional publishers, but you also want to put out a high-quality, professionally published book, without drying up your bank account.

How can you find a publishing option that’s
the real deal?

You’ve looked into some of those publishing services, where you buy a package, and they say they’ll publish your book for you. But you have to do all the hard work of getting the book ready, and then they just slap a cover on it and upload it for ebook and print-on-demand.

What if you need help with editing before publishing the book? And what if you need help with a launch plan? I hate to say it, but you’re going to pay them thousands of dollars, and they’re not going to be there for you.

And what about those “hybrid” publishers, who publish your book but want you to invest upfront and share profits with them? And how do you know which of these online hybrid publishers is legitimate and which ones are a scam?

All of these questions circling in your mind is enough to make you procrastinate on putting your book out for another year.

What if you could find a publishing company that could help you self-publish on a reasonable budget and a quick timeline?

What if the publishing company would let you have full say in your book’s content and style?

What if the publishing company would let you would keep 100% of the profits of your book?

What does it look like to
publish with Paper Raven Books?

When we bring in your manuscript for publishing, we have a publishing planning session on the phone. We talk through the vision of your book, how our team will work with you throughout the publication process, and what the timeline will look like, so that you feel comfortable and fully informed from Day One. After you send us your manuscript, we’ll progress through these milestones:


In our Starter Publishing package, we go straight to copyediting, which looks closely at every sentence. We want your voice and style to stand out and be consistent, from introduction to conclusion. We examine each sentence for clarity, consistency, and flow within the broader context.

The next phase of editing is proofreading, which looks at every word and punctuation mark. We create a style sheet, especially for your book, so that all of the capitalizations, abbreviations, and spellings are perfectly consistent, throughout your book. And, of course, we’re catching every grammar error and typo, along the way.


The first part of a book’s design is the cover. You know that a good cover is absolutely crucial to your book becoming a bestseller and having the impact you know it could have. We believe that every book has a different visual style and vibe, so we ask a pool of designers to submit their cover concepts, we offer our advice on which covers adhere to classic design principles, and you pick the cover that best represents your vision.

After your manuscript has been fully edited and proofread, we begin the interior design process. We create a typographical style that suits your book’s character, and we make sure that every page looks good. Then, we look at each element of every page, from chapter headings to page numbers and paragraph spacing to bullet points, in a final proof. When we finalize your book’s files, you’ll know that it’s publishable perfect.


We manage publishing your book to Amazon Kindle as an ebook, Amazon CreateSpace as a paperback, and IngramSpark as a hardback. You’ll have one, consolidated Amazon page, where any reader in the world can buy all three versions of your book. You’ll also have an IngramSpark account, which allows any library or bookstore to order and stock your book on their shelves.


You’re publishing like a pro, so let’s launch your book like a pro, too. We help you create a launch strategy that’ll optimize your book’s launch on the Amazon platform. We’ll craft a strategy to help you get reviews ahead of the book’s launch and enough promotion during the launch to snag a best seller spot in your Amazon category. Sound overwhelming? You’ll have a project manager by your side, helping you to make sure the first full week of your launch rolls out smoothly.


Throughout all of this, from editing to launching, your book will have a dedicated project manager who will be in constant contact with you and your book’s team. Your project manager will make sure all your questions are answered, that your book stays on schedule, that every file is uploaded correctly and on time for your publication date, and that your launch is smooth. Don’t worry, we’ll be there with you, every step of the way. Because we’ve got your back, you can use all your energy and excitement to promote the heck out of your beautiful book.
