PUBLISHING SERVICES – OVERVIEW

Truly gone are the days when self-publishing was referred to as ‘vanity’ publishing. Today there are two extremely valid reasons to self-publish. First you don’t need to wait 1.5 or 2 years to see your book in print (the usual amount of time it takes to get an agent, sell your proposal to a publishing company, and go through the production process). Second, you keep control over your book and earn the majority of profits. Don’t get us wrong – having a publisher behind you can be a good thing and we can help you get a publisher, but for many authors, it is simply a better decision to self-publish.

If you are uncertain which option right for you, we have all the details to help you make your choice. Contact us to discuss your publishing options.

If you are committed to this path, we have decades of experience to help you. We have worked with dozens of major publishing houses and numerous literary agents. We know what it takes to write a winning book proposal to help you land a literary agent and a major publishing house.

As early as possible in the process of publishing your book, it helps to take stock of your vision, mission, purpose, goals, and skills. Targeting these clearly will help you make better decisions about how you will market your book, who your audience is, what methods you might use to reach them, and what activities you want to prioritize to promote your book and build your reputation. We offer a unique “author branding service” that assists you in creating your brand.
