You will also receive audio of True Vine University Tele-seminars that help give you a headstart on the publishing process.
Manuscript Coaching: Writing a book can be a difficult and intimidating process. With True Vine Manuscript Coaching, a professional will consult with the author once per week for up to 10 weeks via direct communication, telecommunication, or electronic communication. The coach will review that week’s writing, give input, and assign changes and/or additions. This service will allow the writer to be informed of structural problems, congruency, and other major problems that may exist during the development of the book. In most cases, manuscript coaching reduces the time and expense spent on editing.
Publishing Coaching: This service provides a year of coaching and assistance at your disposal from a team of Publishing and PR professionals. True Vine Publishing Coaching is perfect for:
Marketing and Promotion Consultation: With this service, a team of industry professionals will work with the author to open new markets for the author to sell books; bookstore placement, book tours, radio and television exposure, and more. This is a great service for serious “Authorpreneurs”. The author will have the choice of a regional or national plan. The True Vine team has combined 60 years in book publishing, bookselling, and Marketing experience.
ISBN: The ISBN provides a standard way to identify your book. All bookstores require your book to have an ISBN and bar code. The ISBN number ties into a catalog of all (registered) books in print. This catalog lists the publisher, access and purchasing information, and descriptive data about each book. True Vine’s ISBN is not a required service although highly recommended.
Copyright: Copyright is a form of protection grounded in the U.S. Constitution and granted by law for original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression. Copyright covers both published and unpublished works. True Vine will handle the registration of your work with the Library of Congress. True Vine will also register copyrights separately.
Barcode: Barcode allows retailers to measure retail activity at each point in the merchandising cycle – when receiving items into stock, when they are transferred between locations, and when they’re sold. Some retailers uniquely identify each individual item with a barcoded serial number. Large retailers will require your barcodes to have integrity – these will be exclusive identifiers for your product items so your item doesn’t get mixed up with any other item. ISBNs are required to get barcodes.
All registration services are provided for True Vine writers as a bundle package for $150.00
