Are you ready to share your masterpiece with the world?
You had a divinely inspired dream to write a book, and you have made it a reality. You put your heart and soul into every word and achieved an incredible feat. But now what? That’s where we step in. Auraq is here to help bring your book to life with professionalism and excellence. From author registration to printing and marketing, we provide a comprehensive one-window solution for your self-publishing needs. Here is how you can begin your self-publishing journey with Auraq.
Start the process by filling out our Author Registration Form, which can be found here. This form gathers information about your book to get the publishing process started. Upon submitting the form, you will receive an automated email that outlines the next steps.
After registration, the next step is to submit your manuscript for editorial review via email. During review, our editorial board will go through the content to ensure it meets our standard guidelines. This process may take up to 10 working days or more. You will receive feedback on any areas that need improvement. Once approved, we will move on to the next step.
Choose between Bulk Printing or Print-On-Demand (POD) while your manuscript is in review. For bulk printing, you can start with 300–500 copies or more. For POD, start with 30 copies. For a cost estimation, reach out to us via email or WhatsApp. Our representative will provide you estimated cost involved. Upon choosing your preferred self-publishing model, we will proceed with the agreement and invoice.
Book Publishing Agreement
Once your manuscript is reviewed and you have selected your publishing model, we will prepare and send a written Book Publishing Agreement via email. Please review the agreement before signing, and feel free to discuss anything if necessary.
Auraq offers a range of editorial services, including editing, proofreading, formatting, and cover design. Our team of experienced professionals can assist you in making your book look and feel its best. If you have already done your own editing and design work, you can provide the final editable files in accordance with our specifications.
Printing of Copies
Our printing department will handle the printing process and produce a high-quality product, whether it is Paperback, or Hardback with a dust cover. After the agreement is signed, editorial work is completed and the manuscript file is approved by the author, printing will commence. Usually, this process can take up to three weeks or more. An expedited printing service is also available for an additional fee.
Sales and Distribution
Upon the successful completion of printing, you will receive your author copies. Your book will be proudly showcased for purchase on the Auraq Webstore, with convenient countrywide delivery options. It will also be available on the Facebook Shop and Google Products. We also offer localized distribution to bookstores in Islamabad, Lahore, and Karachi (not applicable for all published works), and for the global audience, the option of publishing on Amazon.com.
Our marketing efforts are a source of pride for us, and we are committed to promoting your book through strategic social media posts to reach the maximum audience. Our basic free social media marketing package includes creating a visually appealing 3D poster of your book and promoting it on various social media platforms. We have a range of paid promotional packages for those seeking even greater visibility.
