What published alumni say about Now Novel:

I'm now ready to launch my novel. I got it written and edited inside of six months. We will see how it sells!

Dr Bonnie Traymore

I loved working with Zee. She was extremely helpful and insightful. She genuinely cared about her editing my manuscript and very encouraging. I think her background in French was extremely vital to her work on this particular manuscript

Joe Byrd

When it was suggested I write a work of fiction after years of non-fiction, I didn't know where to start. Now Novel came to the rescue. I used the tools to define my characters and posted excerpts for peer review. Since those first tentative steps I have had three novels (the SimCavalier sci fi series) and four short stories published

Frequently asked questions


FAQ speech bubbles
What types of novels are suitable for your self-publishing packages

»Our packages are designed for novellas, novels, and long novels up to 150K words. Whether you're looking to publish a concise, impactful story or an expansive, detailed narrative, we have the right package for you. Non-fiction books and visual books such as children's books require additional work to convert into an ebook format and may incur extra costs. If you have a non-fiction or visual book, please contact us at [email protected] for a custom quote.

How does the publishing consultation work

» After you have finished with the editing and proofreading processes, you'll be scheduled for a one-on-one session with our publishing expert. He'll discuss your goals, review your materials, and offer tailored advice to maximize your book's potential.

Can I see examples of cover designs before I decide

» Absolutely! Please look above for examples, but we can provide other samples of our previous cover designs so you can gauge our aesthetic quality and creativity.

Can I provide my own image for the cover design

» Absolutely! If you have a specific image in mind that you'd like incorporated into your cover design, you're welcome to send it to us. Make sure you either own the copyright or have obtained a valid license allowing its use for commercial purposes like book cover design.

What if I need more than two rounds of feedback on my cover design

» Our standard package includes two rounds of feedback. However, additional feedback rounds can be arranged for a nominal fee to ensure your cover perfectly captures your book's essence.

How are the editing and proofreading services adapted for different novel lengths

» Editing and proofreading services are scaled according to word count to ensure a thorough review without compromising on quality, no matter the length of your manuscript.

Can you describe the eBook conversion process

» We handle the conversion of your Word document into an ePub format, ensuring that your book is compatible with Kindle and other e-readers, maintaining formatting integrity and readability. Please note that the ePub is uneditable, so the conversion can only take place after you have finished the final proofreading.

What about typesetting for my ebook

» Our ebook conversion process does not include typesetting. The final ebook will reflect the formatting of the Word document provided, so it's important to ensure your manuscript is formatted as you wish it to appear in the final ebook product before submission.

What does the Amazon author page setup include

» We create a professional author page on Amazon to showcase your catalog of works and enhance your visibility and connection with readers. You will provide us with an author bio and profile picture, book blurb, and catalog of works.

What's included in the personalized Amazon handbook

» The handbook is a comprehensive guide to managing your Amazon author profile, uploading future works, tracking sales, and optimizing your presence on the platform.

What if I already have a cover design or don't require all the services listed

» We offer the flexibility to tailor packages to fit your specific needs. If you already have certain elements like a cover design, we can adjust the package accordingly. However, if you already have a cover for your print book, we'll still need to adjust it to meet the cover specifications for Amazon Print on Demand. Please contact us on [email protected] to request a custom quote.

How do the one-on-one coaching calls work

» These calls are scheduled monthly to discuss your progress, address any concerns, and provide expert advice on moving forward effectively. They are included as part of the publishing course, which is included in all the packages.

Will I receive assistance if I encounter issues after the handover

» Our commitment to your success extends beyond the handover. Should any issues arise with the work we have delivered, we're here to provide support and guidance.

Can I pay for services in instalments

» We offer a two-payment instalment plan for author services, available upon request only. If you'd like to take advantage of this option, please send us an email at [email protected].
