Publishing. It’s time to publish a guide book.
We pride ourselves in not being a huge ad agency serving the world’s biggest budgets. We serve the little guy.
We serve the small businesses. The nonprofit organizations. The authors. The artists and musicians. The dreamers and the doers.
Personal and professional customer service is alive and well at Hibard Group.
E-books are easy to create, design and publish, and will give your book legs to run and wings to fly.
You and your project are up against the same challenges as everybody else, but we hope, for your sake, you won’t let fear keep your book unwritten, your song un sung, or your project just an idea you had back when you were younger.
An experienced narrator can read a 250-word page in 5-10 minutes.
If you’re an author, you might not necessarily have the personality or the skill to narrate your book. Maybe you do. Narrating an audiobook is like acting, and you’ve got to be ready to perform every sentence, every word, every pause, from beginning to end.
After we’ve recorded your book, it gets sent to post production. Post production takes somewhere between 2-3 times as long as the recording. This is where we take out the mistakes, make you sound like a professional audiobook narrator, and add the magic, like sound effects.

Every book needs editing. The question is: what type of editing do you need for your book?
Well, it depends.
It gets confusing because there are many different types of editing, but no agreed-upon definitions for those different types in the editing process.
I’m going to fix that for you. I’ll lay out the common definitions of all the different types of editing, then explain when it’s appropriate to use each one.
Like most things in life, literary publishing is a journey. Here are the 6 steps to get your book over the finish line.
