Book Launchers helps entrepreneurs and professionals publish high-quality non-fiction books. But, this is not a traditional publishing company. Our authors retain all control and ownership over the content and keep all royalties. We provide the team and the guidance to help our authors not only write and publish, but also to achieve their business objectives through their book. It’s not just about selling books (although we help guide them through how to sell books too!). It’s about using a book to build a business, boost a brand, become a recognized expert all while sharing valuable expertise and experience with others.
You will be an external and independent contractor – one of our proofreaders on call.
Your primary point of contact will be our Client Care Manager, but your ultimate job is to delight our customers by making their ideal readers buy their book with your brilliant copy!
Your role is important because you’ll be helping us ensure our authors are publishing a book a polished book. In fact, our clients actually hold our proofreading to a higher standard than a traditional publisher because they never want to look self-published!
Our process has five phases:
Pen to Paper (Writing Your Book)
Publishing (Design, Layout, & Set Up with Printing and Distribution)
Platform (Building the business around the book including website, social media,and other services offered around the book)
Promote (Selling the book).
You’ll play a very important role in the Process phase if you’re the first proofread, and if you’re doing the final proofread in Publishing (layout) before it goes to print, you are the final eyes that need to spot any other little typos or issues that have crept in during layout.
Every project has a timeline so we will have a rough idea of when we’ll need you, so you can plan your schedule accordingly, but as our proofreader on call, we do have tight turnaround deadlines (usually less than 6-10 business days) and ask if you can’t fit it into your schedule, you’ll notify us immediately so we can send it to another copy editor.
