Publishing

Self-Publishing OPTIONS

We help all sorts of authors to self-publish. They have different goals, such as:

  • To sell books for profit as a commercial business venture.
  • To spread important ideas by distributing books widely. To these authors, it is less important if it earns a profit or not.
  • To educate a smaller, select group of people. For example, a corporate history or training book.
  • To produce a special, personal book for family and friends. Many memoirs and family histories are not sold to the public.
  • To produce an eBook either as a single title or as a supplement to a print book

In each of these cases, the publishing strategy differs. Not everyone needs an ISBN, or even to print books! That's why our publishing services can be purchased individually, or in a package. You can purchase just what you need.
