0. Unleashing your soulful expression

We are here to listen to your Soul and how it wants to create in the manifest world. That you are true to yourself and we together are listening to your highest expression into the manifest is key to us. That is why we always create a space for deep listening into the field of possibilities and create a process together that fits our journey as cocreators.

The below are some milestones on the way although everyone’s journey is different. We are not a traditional publishing house which goes without say. We are here to support messages of the light come into form.

1. Getting your book written and edited

Writing your book

It goes without say that your book should manifest in the highest frquency possible, which means that it will hold a high quality in all aspects. Your writing as a first priority, then book layout, design and of course the cover. And then the process to reach out. We will cocreate all along the process to see what you need support with. It is in our joint interest that the quality of the production is as light and professional as possible.

Editing

To edit a book means to go through the content in a lot of aspects ─ the story, easiness to read, consistency etc.  If you need support with editorial services,  ask us for a quote.

Proof Reading

Proof reading means to check that everything is correct with regards to spelling and grammatical usage and rules. Ask for a quote.

2. Book & Cover Design

Book Interior Design

The book design can be done when the manuscript has been checked and checked again! As few errors as possible is the idea as it will otherwise cost more in the process along the way.

There is a wide variety of book sizes you can choose from; the preparation cost is the same. LightSpira books are professional in their design and we do not publish directly from the output of word-processing documents. We use professional programs (such as InDesign).  If you have someone that will help you with that then we are happy to provide guidelines how the interior and the cover need to be set up.

Price: Starting fee 500 SEK + 0,1 SEK per word and 100 SEK per picture (excluding VAT).
For more complex projects and for e-book projects that are not converted from a printed original, ask for a quote.

Cover Design

When you have an idea about the design and you can provide us with high resolution pictures to work with then we will take that design and put it into the right format.

Price: 1500 SEK excl VAT

Cover Design – Advanced

If you need a little more support for your cover then we are happy to provide that at an hourly rate of 500 SEK. We can search picture databases and provide you with suggestions how to design your cover. Ask us for a quote based on your idea.

Price: 500 SEK/hour excl VAT

Sample book & final check

A sample book will be printed and now it is time to really scrutinise so that there are as few errors as possible. Maybe we will print several books so that you can ask friends to also have a very close look. As a result from this process we will make the necessary changes and upload the files once more to the printer. Important is that this step is taken at the very last moment in order to avoid extra costs – ie the manuscript and design will have to be ready before uploading and ordering the sample book. We will also check that the colours look nice and that everything is in order.
