The Publishing Process
Authors who work with Hephiklis Publishing gain access to skilled and responsive publishers, editors and designers, and an active marketing team experienced in selling science-based products. We provide a full publishing service and believe that word-of-mouth from satisfied authors is the best advertising.
After your proposal has been accepted, we will offer you a contract for publication. You may be asked to modify your proposal as a result of feedback we have received from referees. Your contract will include an agreed date for delivery of the final manuscript. It is important that you adhere to this date because we often begin marketing your book many months before publication.
Your publisher will provide you with a style guide and instructions to help you to prepare your manuscript to our requirements.
During the writing phase, we will contact you regularly to check on your progress and remind you of the need to deliver your manuscript as agreed. We may ask to view sample chapters or a draft manuscript in order to provide you with feedback on style and content. Where appropriate, we will obtain feedback on draft manuscripts from suitable experts in your field to provide you with suggestions that will improve your manuscript.
Upon delivery and our acceptance of the finished manuscript, we will edit your material and design a publication that will appeal to the intended readership and make the most of your text. Our experienced editorial and production department oversees the copy-editing, text and cover design, typesetting, proofreading and printing of your manuscript, in consultation with you.
As your manuscript goes into production, we begin planning a marketing strategy for your book. We welcome your suggestions for promotion and will ask you to complete a marketing questionnaire.
All our titles are marketed internationally. We make use of a network of international distributors to reach as wide an audience as possible. Our online catalogue delivers product information and online ordering capability to a global audience 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We pride ourselves on our direct-marketing skills to relevant professional organisations and interest groups, and are careful to send information that readers will find relevant and interesting.
We have an excellent customer service team, along with an on-site warehouse, ensuring speedy delivery of our publications to all corners of the globe.

Targeted Advertising That Is Effective
How do you choose where and how to advertise?
We are honored to have been invited to post on the Book Designer on the subject of ebooks — a subject we love talking about, having been designing ebooks since 2010. (In this industry that makes us practically an old-timer.)
There are lots of very complex questions when it comes to ebooks:
- text and image formattingus workflows for creating ebooks,
- and much more.
A kind of digital file that is frequently referred to as an ebook but that isn’t is the PDF — the now-universal Portable Digital File format that Adobe invented as a way of distributing print documents digitally. Not only is it how we share our own personal documents (letters, etc.) through the internet, but it’s how publishers have been transferring print-ready files to commercial printers for decades. How is that not an ebook, you ask?
The PDF isn’t truly an ebook because it retains its format no matter the size of the screen that displays it. It will always be an accurate representation of the paper document that it represents — on a 27″ monitor, on a 13″ laptop display, on an 9.7″ iPad screen, or a 4.8″ Galaxy s3 phone.
The basic unit for a PDF is the page. And so as the screen shrinks, so does the page size, and with it the size of the words, and with them both the readability. Anyone who’s tried to read a PDF on a small screen knows what I mean.
Characteristics of an eBook
What a true ebook, then, does, is to present correctly formatted text and images no matter the size of the screen it’s being displayed on. In order to do this, ebooks get rid of the idea of a page; the text will format to flow properly, and when one screen is full, will flow to the next — that is, they are reflowable.
Images will resize (if the book has been properly designed) to the proportions of the screen. Ideally the book will be attractive and easy to read on any device — and because each software application for reading ebooks has some reader controls, some whose vision is no longer as strong as it once was (like, say, me) can make it larger, while someone who doesn’t like serif fonts can have the book display in sans-serif or, heck, Zapfino (don’t try this at home). And this can all be done without changing the ebook itself — the changes are simply user preferences within the app.
How to write a book by Hephiklis
The hard part of writing a book isn’t getting it published. With more opportunities than ever to become an author, the hard part is the actual writing.
We’ll teach you the fundamental steps you need to write a book. I’ve worked hard to make this easy to digest and super practical, so you can start making progress.
And just a heads up: if you dream of authoring a bestselling book like we have and you’re looking for a structured plan to guide you through the writing process, We have a special opportunity for you at the end of this post where we break the process down.
But first, let’s look at the big picture. What does it take to write a book? It happens in three phases:
- Beginning: You have to start writing. This sounds obvious, but it may be the most overlooked step in the process. You write a book by deciding first what you’re going to write and how you’re going to write it.
- Staying motivated: Once you start writing, you will face self-doubt and overwhelm and a hundred other adversaries. Planning ahead for those obstacles ensures you won’t quit when they come.
- Finishing: Nobody cares about the book that you almost wrote. We want to read the one you actually finished, which means no matter what, the thing that makes you a writer is your ability not to start a project, but to complete one.
. Decide what the book is about
Good writing is always about something. Write the argument of your book in a sentence, then stretch that out to a paragraph, and then to a one-page outline. After that, write a table of contents to help guide you as you write, then break each chapter into a few sections. Think of your book in terms of beginning, middle, and end. Anything more complicated will get you lost.
2. Set a daily word count goal
Many authors began their writing career as a lawyer and new dad — in other words, they were really busy. Nonetheless, they got up an hour or two early every morning and wrote a page a day. After a couple of years, they had a novel. A page a day is only about 300 words. You don’t need to write a lot. You just need to write often. Setting a daily goal will give you something to aim for. Make it small and attainable so that you can hit your goal each day and start building momentum.
3. Have a set time to work on your book every day
Consistency makes creativity easier. You need a daily deadline to do your work — that’s how you’ll finish writing a book. Feel free to take a day off, if you want, but schedule that ahead of time. Never let a deadline pass; don’t let yourself off the hook so easily. Setting a daily deadline and regular writing time will ensure that you don’t have to think about when you will write. When it’s time to write, it’s time to write.
Write in the same place every time
It doesn’t matter if it’s a desk or a restaurant or the kitchen table. It just needs to be different from where you do other activities. Make your writing location a special space, so that when you enter it, you’re ready to work. It should remind you of your commitment to finish this book. Again, the goal here is to not think and just start writing.
