Papertrue! True! True! True!
My experience with papertrue.com was great. I came across their site from the high ratings. And the high ratings proved to be true. Once I got onto their site, I was immediately helped by a papertrue.com Rep, a live person, who helped answer my questions and walked me through the process. That was a big plus! And as a first timer, I got a discount or free edit. That was another plus! And the transaction was quick and easy. The turnaround time was also fast, delivery was on schedule and on time as specified. Another plus! My editor was also great and very helpful with comments, notes and suggestions. And when my document was completed and I had to ask a question to my editor, the Customer Service Rep was quick to respond. They escalated the matter so that my question would reach my editor and my editor would give me a reply directly and quickly. And my editor did just that. That was a major plus! Overall, thumbs up on great Customer Service and Editorial service. I would recommend them and look forward to working with them again. Thank you papertrue.com!
More than I had hoped for!
Did two jobs with PaperTrue and I'm highly satisfied. In one of the jobs I had some questions regarding their proposed changes and they immediately dug into it and explained why they had chosen certain expressions instead of others and what the differences were. That's really more than I had hoped for! And their chat-people are very alert - and good fun, too!
Very trustworthy and extremely efficient
I had an academic document proofread by the papertrue team. They not only corrected numerous grammar and spelling issues, they also advised on certain expressions according to my target audience. And the best, they did so over night... extremely fast, extremely good, and trustworthy service. Will be coming here again for the next publication.
Even my tutor can not find these errors
Thank you for editing my document on time. The editor pointed my attention to my commonly made mistakes; missing words, incorrect spelling and grammatical inconsistencies throughout the document.
I was happy to receive both a tracked and a clean version of the edited document.
I will happily recommend PaperTrue to my friends, and I will myself come back on a later occasion.
Excellent Service, Highly Recommended
I have used PaperTrue for several editing projects for my website. They have edited small and large projects for me. PaperTrue offers great pricing with no hidden fees, they always deliver on time and I love the fact that they provide a clean version and a corrected version showing the recommend changes. I highly recommend this company for anyone looking for quality editing services. They have great communications, project completion dates are given when ordered and they have consistently met the deadline. I am extremely satisfied and I will remain a loyal customer.
Great service, great company!
We are a Spanish advertising agency that work for international companies. Usually we need our copies to be reviewed. We trust Papertrue for doing this, they are always super-professional and always deliver the documents on time. I recommend them 100%
Improvement in structure, language and formatting
My cover letter was corrected very professionally, with very detailed comments and explanation. Smaller issues like my unclear description were changed shortly in a revision version, with a very smooth communication. I have learned also from the formating. For further CVs I will still consider their service, because the cover letter has to be formulated for specific job description. I don't do massive job application.
Quick 24 hour turnaround
Paper True was quick and effective. I needed a 24 hr turnaround and they provided me edits to my resume that became the talk of the town among my team. Everyone loved how thorough the edits were. Thank you Paper True for helping me so quickly and effectively.
Aaron is the best editor!
I live in Zürich and needed to have my cooking book "The Food Is Ready" , edited in english before I publish it. So I decided to sent the manuscript to Paper True and I can only tell that I was really impress when I saw the work they did. Aaron my Editor has correct the language and grammar errors. He has done a terrific work improving phrasing and consistency of my book. If you are looking for a serious company I can really recommend Paper True. And "they are allways there available if you have any questions"
An amazing job!
As a sixteen years old Danish girl I must admit finding the right editor was hard, but I found THE one ;)
Amazing service and a welcoming chat on the website! I love the detailed comments and feedback on the tracked document :) They really did a good job at making my debut novel a lot better while still keeping my style of writing!
Much love from Denmark <3

        Book Cover Design: An Introduction

        • calenderMar 11, 2021
        • calender 5 min read

        ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’. This is a saying that we’ve heard umpteenth number of times, and we take it to mean ‘don’t be shallow’. But for actual books, this is a matter of concern, because a good book cover is the thin line between buying the book and not buying the book. 

        The cover of your book is crucial to help the reader get a faint idea of what the central idea of your book is. An attractive book cover design will help it fly off the shelf in a jiffy!

         

        • Anatomy of a book cover design

        If you think that your book cover is only all about the graphics, think again! These elements go into making one:

        1. Title: Your title should be the core of your book. Try to keep it short and simple, instead of aiming for a clever title, because remember, you’re thinking like a reader and not an author. 
        2. Author’s name: Very obvious. And if it’s your first book, a matter of pride. But it should not overpower the title in font and size. 
        3. Front cover: Your front cover is the main hook of the book cover design. Along with the title, it should conjure up what you want the reader to experience.
        4. Subtitle: Add a subtitle only if necessary. Most romance or thriller novels have subtitles which are two lines, a pinch of vague, and enough to intrigue the reader about the book. 
        5. Back Cover: The back cover offers a short summary of the book, the author’s photo and details. 

         

        • Things to keep in mind before giving your book for cover design.  
        1. Thoroughly understand what your book is about. Try and make a short summary of the book to get a clearer idea. Another thing that might work for you is listing down words that immediately remind you of your book, which indirectly means that you want the reader to feel the same way. For example, the cover design for ‘A Girl on the Train’ immediately invokes thrill and mystery, along with the subtitle.
        2. Finalize the title and the subtitle (if there is one). The title is the identity of your book for a reader who is going to pick it up for the first time. Make sure you discuss with hundreds of people, take criticism and feedback from your editors and closest friends, and carefully contemplate about what exactly will the title be.
        3. Decide a budget. Cover design depends on the level of complexity and at a later stage, on the material to be used for the book cover. If you want to be a little flexible to ensure a stunning cover, decide a price bracket instead of a fixed budget. 

         

        1. How does good cover design help your book reach a larger audience? (Why do you need a good book cover?)

         

        Think of your book cover as a movie’s trailer. If the trailer is good, packs a punch, and tells what to expect without revealing what the whole movie is, bingo! You have yourself an exciting wait. The same applies for book cover design. A good book cover catches the eye of the reader almost immediately, it’s like their peripheral vision is keeping an eye out for it. 

        Sometimes, a good book cover design becomes the identity of your book, and can remain the same for multiple editions as opposed to a new cover for an anniversary edition, or 10th edition. Read about some iconic book cover designs here. 

        1. Why should you take help of a professional cover design service instead of doing it yourself? (Designing a book cover yourself vs sending it to a professional)

        Your book’s cover design is very important, as we’ve established in the earlier sections. A lot of authors who want to know how to design a book cover themselves. And while designing one might save you money, it will most certainly eat up time; time that you could’ve used to do what you do best: write. 

        Another important factor is the insight that a creative mind brings to the desk. When you approach a professional book cover designer, they will dedicate their entire time to your cover, give you a variety of options, and also provide another perspective if you already know what you want your design to be. They are more skilled and trained in identifying how the visual really works for the story and the audience. 

        If you think that you will be wasting money by hiring a professional cover designer, think again and think of it as an investment on a good book which will immortalise itself in the eyes of your readers. Money is always secondary.
