Take advantage of LightSpeed’s complete packaging services. We’ll put together your publications from initial concept to delivery of final files. Let us bring new titles and ideas to your publishing program, or we’ll take your own concepts, develop them, find authors, manage, and edit them. We’ll deliver a polished final draft, fully-produced pages, or electronic files.

Our services let you farm out the specific responsibilities normally performed by in-house project editors and production coordinators. We have years of experience at managing authors, and a top-notch group of contracting editors, desktop publishers, designers, artists, photographers, proofreaders and indexers. We'll provide and supervise the services you need to make your publications sparkle! We can give you tighter control of your publications and generally produce them more quickly than is possible inhouse.

Publishers and authors alike appreciate LightSpeed's insightful, helpful, and comprehensive editing. Our editing services span the gamut, including development, content, and copyediting. A tight developmental edit focuses the author, contributes to a strong publication, and prevents problems later on in the production cycle. Our content editors make sure the subject matter is presented in a logical, compelling, and easy-to-follow manner. In the copyediting phase, we assure consistency, adherence to your preferred style guides, and have a sharp eye for typos. Authors enjoy working with us and always view us as advocates and allies.

Writing and Authors

Whether you need a book, an article, back cover copy, press releases, or rewrites, LightSpeed can do it quickly, accurately, and with pizzazz. We’ll follow the tone and style you prefer. Our writers specialize in accessible, easy-to-understand prose, no matter how complicated the topic, including how-to's, music/pop culture, metaphysical/spiritual, technical, investigative journalism, fiction, humor, marketing, or just about anything you need. LightSpeed can also find, screen, develop, and sign authors for you. We can make sure the job will be finished by lining up backup writers or co-authors for large projects or those with tight deadlines.


RoombyRoomKitchens

We provide the look you want or come up with ideas to reflect your own publishing program. Our designers, desktop publishers, and artists are creative, experienced, quick, flexible, and responsive. We work in InDesign, Photoshop, QuarkXPress, Illustrator, and, yes, we have artists capable of hand illustration! We have a network of photographers and we are very familiar with stock houses, if your publications require photos.

Multimedia

Today’s publications go far beyond the printed page. We can create eBooks for the latest platforms and provide Web sites that support your publications, as well as CD/DVD components to offer additional features to your readers. We make sure your multimedia conveys the image you want, and assure that our electronic files will work in the format you need. We are also very experienced in troubleshooting the problems that can hinder the progress of a publication.
