I will also include an example of a completed metadata sheet, so you can see what information we need. Don’t worry about providing all of this information right away; we won’t need it until it’s time to upload the files to the printers (i.e. once you have approved the text and cover file).
This is the information we require:
These should be terms and phrases that potential buyers may search for, including things such as:
BIC code (This will be the same/similar to the BISAC/genre code you picked when preparing material for the cover. On this website, you can search for terms related to your book and then just send me the code for your chosen category (for example: FHD – Espionage and spy thriller): https://ns.editeur.org/bic_categories/344
Information on the primary geographic location of the book. Select the most accurate relevant region. It is better to select a broader, more inclusive region if the book covers multiple locales. For example, for a book about a backpacking trip through Central America, select Central America rather than one particular country or city. However, if the content is very focused on just one city, state/province, or other sub‐region, then select that.
Similar to BISAC and BIC, Thema is a classification scheme to identify the major categories for a work, including genre(s), topic(s), and theme(s). Thema is used internationally by global distributors, aggregators and retailers. We recommend clicking on the link below and using the search bar to search for key terms related to your book (for example, “Fantasy” or “Dystopia”); this will then bring up every Thema Subject connected to those terms: https://ns.editeur.org/thema/en/.
