     Publishing, Printing and More

    Our publishing services are for authors who seek a traditional publisher or those who intend to self publish. We are NOT vanity publishers and do not recommend the use of these "self publishing companies".  Vanity publishers often mislead authors by promising commercial success – buyers should beware of expensive “publishing packages”.  In contrast, we provide only the services you need. We do NOT contract your book; you own all the rights to your title. Independent authors who truly self publish can keep all of their profits from book sales by using our editing, design and publishing services.
