So, what exactly happens behind the scenes for Broken Publications?
Once editing is finished, the document must be formatted for print and the Table of Contents, copyright page, page numbers, and other elements should be added. After that, the spine width is calculated and the book cover is designed and finalized for print while the author takes another look at the book's interior file. Once these are finished, the book files are uploaded to CreateSpace and submitted for approval. Once approved, the proof is ordered - in PDF or print forms, the print version's cost being covered by the publisher. Once the proof is approved by the author, the book is published and expanded distribution purchased, also at the expense of the publisher.
Then the eBook process begins. The original source file is converted to html and cleaned up, formatted, and perfected in DreamWeaver. Quality testing takes place: conversion and html coding until the book appears perfect in the Kindle eReader. Once complete, the book is then published through Kindle Direct Publishing and, if requested by the author, on PubIt! for the Nook.

The ideas don't cost a thing and the work itself is a passion, but outsourcing even two or three tasks would slingshot the company forward toward its amazingly bright future!
Each year, more projects and programs will begin to take shape as scholarship funds, domestic violence prevention initiatives, and quality literary publications are developed and executed.
