Ready to Publish?

aSys Publishing strongly believes that every author has the right to have their work published. If you think that your book should be published then we want to hear from you. Our only requirements are that your book content is legal, not of an offensive nature and you have the rights to publish the work."

The Publishing Procedure

Self Publishing with aSys Publishing could not be easier. All you need to do is submit your manuscript in a word processor format and we will do the rest. During the process, you will receive several PDF soft-proofs for you to check. These soft-proofs include the book's interior and cover design.

If you are having a physical book, then aSys Publishing will assign your book an ISBN and then order a physical proof on your behalf which you would need to check carefully. If you are only having an eBook published, you will receive a soft-proof which will need to be approved.

Once checked and approved, we would mutually select a convenient date for publication and you will decide on a selling price. Your book would be available for people to purchase approximately one week after publication.

The following is a short description of the procedure.

  1. We receive your manuscript and conduct some basic format error checking and preparation

  2. If requested, your manuscript would be proofread or edited

  3. Typesetting begins and various soft-proofs are sent to you

  4. Design work on your cover starts and various soft-proofs are sent

  5. An ISBN is assigned to your book

  6. If applicable, a physical paperback or hardback book is printed

  7. You decide on a selling price based on information provided by aSys Publishing

  8. A convenient publication date is chosen

  9. Publication Day. (The book will be available for sale about seven days later)

  10. A date will be agreed to hand over the various publication accounts to you, which will be done over the phone when you have a computer on, in front of you

Payment

aSys Publishing requires a 20% (or £50, whichever the greater) deposit before work can begin. Full payment is then required after you have approved the book for publication and the funds must have cleared in our account before publication.

Our preferred methods of payment are by Credit / Debit Card (taken over the phone) or Bank Transfer. We accept cheques, made payable to aSys IT, however work cannot start until the cheque has cleared.
