Publishing Services for Authors and Artists

Book Publishing
The Total Package

Traditional book publishing with a modern twist. We handle all aspects of book design, production, printing, and p-book and e-book distribution. Books are sold on our website and through several online book retailers. Titles become part of the catalogs of Ingram and Baker & Taylor, making them available to brick-and-mortar retailers and libraries.  

Zero upfront cost. Authors and artists are paid a royalty on sales. Proposals should be sent through Submittable.

Book Design
Your Words and Images -

Cost to design a book interior starts at $250 and depends upon content, number of images, and length. We will review your files and provide you with a price. Cost to design a book cover is $100 for front only, and $150 for front and back.

E-Book Conversion
Prepare Your Book for
Digital Distribution 

If you self-published a print book that you would like to make available in electronic formats (pdf and epub), or if you had a book published by a publisher and you still hold rights to its digital edition, we can do the conversion for you. With the availability of both fixed layout and reflowable epub formats, it's possible to offer image-intensive art books and children's books in digital formats on Amazon and other sites that require epub.

Conversion fees vary based on the complexity of the book and condition of the files. Cost starts at $65.
