GET YOUR BOOK IN PRINT IN 30 DAYS OR LESS

The fastest, most affordable way to get your book published in print and on Kindle.  Just send us your manuscript and we'll do the rest!

WE UNDERSTAND YOUR PAIN

You've got a book inside you. Maybe you've already written it, or almost written it. You've looked into the cost to publish it, and frankly, the cost is so high you wonder if you'll ever be able to! What if you spend five or ten thousand dollars to get your book published, and nobody buys it?

Or maybe you just want to publish a book for your family or for an event you're putting on. You certainly don't want to spend thousands of dollars on that kind of project. But what are your options?

What if I told you that for just a few hundred dollars your book could be published in print and digital Kindle format, and you could have a copy in your hand within 30 days?

That's exactly what we do.

Our mission is to help small independent authors get their message, story or project into print quickly and affordably.

We'll do our best work on your book to give it that professional look and feel that will make you an authority on your book's topic.

DON'T MAKE THIS COMMON MISTAKE!

STOP! Before you take one more step toward getting your book published I need to warn you to avoid this common, costly and painful mistake.

I've spoken to countless self-published authors who have shared with me their painful stories of how they paid thousands of dollars to get a book published from one of those big companies, because they were made all of these great promises that sounded so good, only to end up owning hundreds of copies of their own book. They can't sell them because they have to charge too much money in a desperate attempt to recoup some of the loss.

And sadly, in almost every case, the story ends the same. A garage full of books that the authors don't know what to do with.

Do not, please, do not make that mistake!

Let me share with you what those promises look like, and then I will tell you what the reality is.


The "Big Publishers" Promises

  • First they will sell you on the idea that a "big publisher" will help you sell your book
  • Then you will be offered a whole bunch of overpriced "extra" features
  • You will be left with the impression that your book will be featured in hundreds of bookstores
  • They will show you big numbers of Twitter and Facebook followers who will be told about your book
  • It will sound well worth the high price so you'll give the "big publisher" thousands of dollars to make it happen

The Tragic Reality

  • Once your book is published, the "big publisher" will do little to sell it (you're their customer and they've made their money)
  • A Tweet about your book from the "big publisher" will yield little, if any, results
  • Virtually no bookstore across the country will carry your book (they can't afford to take a risk on self-published authors today)
  • To buy your own book you will have to pay a high price, which means you will have to sell the book at a high price
  • You'll end up with a garage full of books you can't sell because it's overpriced
  • Unnecessary strain is placed on your personal relationships as a result of the expensive investment that yielded little results
  • The "big publisher" is the only one who wins

YOU'RE IN LUCK! THERE'S AN ALTERNATIVE!

  • q-iconDo you offer editing services?

    We don’t edit manuscripts, but if you need an editor on a budget, we recommend outsourcing your work to Fiverr.com. If you choose to go with the Platinum option we will take care of the editing of your manuscript for you by outsourcing the work to editors we are in relationship with.
