Self-Publish Your Book Today


With our self-publishing services, we help you publish a professional, high quality book; our editors dedicate their time to your book and work with you all the way.

Choose the package that suits your book: The prices are based on the minimum number of words 20,000; if your manuscript is less than 20,000 words, the quote will be as indicated. Manuscripts above 20,000 words will be evaluated first based on the number of words. 

NOTE: For manuscripts above the minimum number of words, that’s a ballpark figure to help you estimate how much it will cost. However, we will give you a refined quotation.
