We work with experienced and first-time authors to help them self-publish their books professionally.
Our teams have been in the business of book publishing for almost two decades and we follow a process similar to traditional publishers – our authors consider us their publishing team and feel assured with us supporting them through the book publishing process.
But the support does not stop there…authors become part of our family and we are there for them with ongoing assistance. Even those working with us years ago feel comfortable emailing or calling with a new question or about their next book.
And, when more help is required to such as implement marketing strategies, work on administration activities, consulting on approaches, or creating support materials – help, at extremely reasonable rates, is just a click away. Here are some examples but feel free to email us if you want help with something else and let’s discuss.
Pricing here is just to give you an idea of average costs. Specific pricing will be communicated to clients, once actual work requirements have been discussed. Rates are subject to change without notice.

Consulting – brainstorming ideas and discussing strategies for marketing, guiding you on making your custom plan for implementation, offering instruction, information and tools and templates.
Support – research, preparing contact lists; assistance with communication development and dissemination, e.g., posting on blog, website, emailing based on research.
