Getting Started

Congratulations on your journey to becoming a self-published author, and considering our self-publishing service!

Here are the steps to get started as you consider the possibility of working with us:

  1. Schedule a free self-publishing consultation.

During your consultation, we will discuss your book project, answer any questions you have and prepare a custom price quote. We will also help you to understand the self-publishing process and how we can help you to achieve your publishing goals.

  1. Review our Creative Services/Publishing Consulting Agreement.

Our CSPC agreement outlines the terms of our work together. Once you have reviewed and accepted the terms, submit your initial 50% deposit to secure your book project in our production schedule.

  1. Submit your finished manuscript.

Once you have completed and submitted your manuscript to us, your book will move into the production phase. We will then work with you to edit, proofread, (if required,) format and prepare your book files to print-ready specifications.

Here is what we will do once we receive your finished manuscript:

  • Edit and proofread your book. (Optional)
  • Format your book’s interior for publication.
  • Create a cover design for your book.
  • Prepare your book for print-on-demand, worldwide distribution.

You will work with a personal project manager from start to finish.

Your personal project manager will be your point of contact throughout the self-publishing process. They will answer your questions, keep you updated on the progress of your book, and help you to achieve your publishing goals.

We’re excited to work with you on your self-publishing journey!

With us, you can become a published author within weeks.
