CONSULTATIONS

THE PUBLISHER™

The Publisher™ offers consulting and publishing services for those who want to independent-publish. I close the gap between independent-publishing and royalty publishing, working directly with the author to meet his/her publishing aspirations. Each book receives professional and creative custom design. My service is individualized to accommodate each author and book project whether you're looking to print 100 copies or 10,000 copies or more.


eBook services are available for new or previously published books. eBook formats to match your book needs. Your book is produced entirely in the USA of premium quality materials.


Independent-publishing projects are NOT open to the public at large. You must have received a direct mail invitation or been recommended by a past or present author to have your submission considered. If you are submitting an unsolicited manuscript it is required you state the author/publication recommending or sponsoring you.
