How We Work:
The Ingenium Books' Process

Our nonfiction book publishing process is both creative and methodical as we integrate creativity as the foundation of the book publishing process.

The 8 Ps of Our Creative Book Publishing Process

1. Prequalify

Your first step is a discovery call with us so we can assess your book idea. Does it make sense as a book? Is it a fit with Ingenium Books? We do not accept every submission, and we want to ensure the best experience and outcome for the authors we do accept. 

2. Plan

You'll work with us on clarifying your purpose for writing the book, your goals and objectives, and identifying your reader. We build the outline, and together we plan the project's major milestones and chart a clear path to publish.

3. Probe

What are the details in your book? What do you want your readers to think/feel/do/believe/know once they've read your book? What do you know that your reader needs to? This may include a series of recorded interviews with one of our team which allows us to capture your voice and tone.

4. Perfect

Review, restructure (if needed!), revise, edit, review, proofread. Where the rubber hits the road in the editorial process, key for turning your draft manuscript into a great, publish-ready book.

5. Prettify

It's gotta look great, inside and out. Your custom cover design and interior layout for paperback, ebook, and hardcover will help your book both fit in and stand out on the most discerning physical and digital bookshelves.  

6. Prepare

Preparing the groundwork for launch includes securing your ISBN (International Standard Book Number), taking care of copyright and cataloguing and distribution details. ​

7. Push

​Out it goes! Amazon, KDP, Ingram, ebook distributors, and those all-important catalogues that bookstores and libraries go to to select the books they're going to stock or order. 

8. Promote

We educate, collaborate, and promote. Every author gets a free copy of our book, How to Create Your Book Marketing Strategy, as well as access to a free webinar on the same topic. We help you get reviews, and provide a launch-week plan that includes Amazon promotions. 
*Some initiatives contain more aggressive marketing activities than others. Check for details.

The details of each step may vary depending on you and your book.

Working with Ingenium Books was an awesome experience. Ingenium Books offers more value than you can get anywhere. They have a marketing component too. The Ingenium team did it all for me.

The 5-Step Creative Process

Creativity doesn't magically happen.
It's a cognitive process producing new ideas or transforming existing ideas into new constructs.

“Creativity is a lot like looking at the world through a kaleidoscope. You look at a set of elements, the same ones everyone else sees, but then reassemble those floating bits and pieces into an enticing new possibility.”

-  Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Professor Harvard Business School
