When self-publishing your digital book before submitting your manuscript to any publisher you must be sure it is as clean as possible. Make sure it has been edited, proofread, and finalized before surrendering it for design work.

Once the designer starts formatting and placing the text is not the time to start editing and proofing.

It is true that when the designer sends you the draft you may find one or two typos. That is expected. In the trade those are known as “Author’s Alterations” or “AA’s.” However, what we are trying to avoid is adding or deleting full sentences or worse yet full paragraphs. These additions and or deletions can cause three and four times the labor (increased time) for the designer equaling amplified costs for you the author.
