How We Can Help

Our core principle of publishing in the way you desire means that we offer self-publishing, hybrid-publishing, and traditional publishing options.

Self-Publishing Or Hybrid-Publishing?
- Complete control over the book and the publishing process, including creative control, marketing, and pricing
- Faster time-to-market, with the ability to publish and distribute a book within a matter of weeks
- Higher royalty rates, with the ability to earn up to 70% of the book’s sales price
- No need to go through a traditional publisher or agent, making it easier for first-time authors to get published
- No support or guidance from a traditional publisher, meaning the author is responsible for all aspects of the publishing process
- Higher upfront costs for services like editing, cover design, and distribution
- Limited access to traditional distribution channels like bookstores and libraries, which can limit the book’s reach and sales potential
- Stigma associated with self-publishing, which can make it harder to gain recognition and respect in the publishing industry
- Offers a mix of traditional and self-publishing models, providing authors with more control over the publishing process while also providing some support and guidance from a traditional publisher
- Access to traditional distribution channels, including bookstores and libraries, which can increase the book’s visibility and sales potential
- Ability to choose from a variety of publishing packages, with different levels of support and services to meet the author’s needs and budget
- Higher royalty rates than traditional publishing, with the ability to earn up to 60% of the book’s sales price
- Higher upfront costs than self-publishing
- Collaborative creative control, while it’s important that we honor your vision, we reserve the right to make editorial and design decisions and will inform you about why a such decision is made
Overall, self-publishing offers complete control and higher royalties but requires more work and investment from the author. Hybrid-publishing offers a middle ground between traditional and self-publishing, with access to traditional distribution channels and support from a publisher, but at a higher cost and shared creative control. Ultimately, the choice between the two depends on the author’s goals, budget, and willingness to take on the responsibilities of self-publishing versus the support and guidance offered by hybrid publishing.
