The Publishing Process

Typically, within three to four months from beginning to end, your book will be available for purchase by the consumer, through the following steps:

The author
  1. Selects Reveille Press service
  2. Completes an author questionnaire
  3. Submits manuscript, typescript or digital file
  4. Decides if any options are required
  5. Helps define format and approves layout
  6. Works with the publishing team to complete the finished product
  7. Approves final proofs and book jacket
The publisher
  1. Prints the book
  2. Activates promotion and distribution to maximise book sales potential
Quality is vital to us and all titles are produced to professional industry standards by our print partners, who work with all the main publishing houses.

Page layout, font selection and jacket design are selected to enhance the presentation of your content and each title is developed on a bespoke basis, rather than from a series of templates.

All our books are printed on quality paper which comes from well-managed forests. All covers are produced in full colour, often benefiting from a gloss or matt laminate.

Most of the material submitted to us is black-and-white, including photographs, tables, maps, graphics or other illustrations. We can accept colour, but as part of our standard service would normally convert to black-and-white or greyscale for reproduction.

If you wish to have colour included inside your book we would be pleased to discuss this separately as part of the pre-production process.

Our default size for WFA members using Reveille Press services is 152x229mm or approx 6x9 inches, which suits the majority of our authors, but for some titles we can offer larger sizes of 170x245mm or 210x297 (A4). There are also options for hardback or a simultaneous hardback and paperback editions.

After publication, as a WFA member author you are free to order further copies of your book to sell or distribute to friends, colleagues etc., as you wish.

All books are available at our generous trade terms of 50% off the recommended retail price (RRP). For example, a book with RRP of £12.99 will cost £6.49. 

Naturally, no royalties are paid on titles purchased directly by authors.
