The A to Z guide on how to publish your book and sell it on Amazon, Smashwords, Apple and others
Paperback Book Publishing:
We take your Word document, format it for publication as a soft cover paper book (6x9 US Trade paperback or other standard size), set up an account for you on the publication site, add default front & back covers, publish the book on the site and arrange for distribution. Includes cost of one 'proof copy' for your review. Once you accept the proof, the finished book is turned over to you so you can manage it yourself, including selecting distribution levels and collecting revenue from book sales. Detailed management instructions are supplied and you can email us for support for six months after final publication. Distribution includes Amazon US, UK and European markets. Great for small runs for your own use and even better for long term commercial sales. You provide your manuscript in Word .doc or .docx format.
(paper book production fee: $ 500)
Paper Book Custom Cover Creation:
Want to use your own photograph to create a custom cover? We take your original photograph, in .jpg format, and use it to create a customized cover for your paper book. This is an add-on to the above 'Paper Book Publishing' service.
(custom cover fee: $ 250)
Add Photos to your book interior:
Want to enhance your memoir by including your own archival photographs? You send us the scanned image in .jpg format, preferably at 300 dpi or better. We'll format the pictures for publication and insert them into your text wherever you want. This is an add-on to the above 'Paper Book Publishing' service.
