Why publish with Delirium? 10 good reasons

Why do I need a publisher?
Publishers are companies who choose, publish and promote books. As a digital publisher, we are interested in ebooks in all their possibilities and differences. An author may decide to contact a publisher for many reasons; since culture can’t be separated from quality, the advantage of a choosing publisher, compared to self-publishing, lies in the relationship the author has with the different professionals of the publishing industry. An editor’s advice, the attention of a proof-reader, the skill of a designer in creating the digital product and the aesthetic views of an art director can’t be simulated by a machine.

Why do I need an editor?
The editor is the professional that chooses, considers and empowers a script. A different and skilled eye sees all the potential of a book: an editor is like an athlete’s coach before a race.

Why do I need a Proof-Reader?
Just like the author’s eye might need an editor’s advice, proof-readers check there are no technical errors or typos in the ultimate file that will generate both the ebook and the print version. Proof-readers are important because people who already know the book tend not to notice typos – simply because they already know what the sentence wants to say.

Why do I need a professional designer to create my ebook
Currently, the most popular ebook format is the epub, but there are many other standards around. Many readers use their own format, so not all ebooks are necessarily visible and readable on all readers. An ebook, that is ready to go on all distribution platforms, is no simple pdf. A professional approach to the problem of compatibility ensures diffusion and distribution, not only quality. Besides, we believe that ebooks are a medium with their own aethetic experience and a great deal of unexplored potential – that’s why Delirium is strongly experimenting in the field of the ebook intended also as an Application for mobile devices (iPhone, Android).
