Self-Publishing

We’ll help you take your manuscript to print

You’ve written your manuscript and you don’t want to go with a traditional publisher, now what?

The world of self-publishing is growing rapidly as many authors are choosing to forgo traditional publishers and do it themselves.

We provide a suite of services to bring your manuscript to print: copyediting, cover design, interior formatting, and self-publishing platform set-up. We can even help you create an audiobook.

Cover Design

They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover, but that’s only partially true. Your cover is usually the first element of your book that people will come into contact with, so it’s crucial that your design is clear, compelling, and fits your target audience. We work with you to create a beautiful cover that both reflects your book and appeals to readers, incorporating all the best practices that make covers pop.

 

 

Layout Design

One of the most overlooked aspects of self-publishing is the interior layout. This is essentially how your words will look on the page and includes elements like the font, the chapter titles, the spacing between sections, and the headers. We’ll work with you to create a beautiful layout that brings your words to life on the page. We’ll make a version that works for print and another that looks great on all types of e-reading devices.

Self-Publishing

There are many different platforms you can use to publish the various versions of your book. There are pros and cons for each of them, depending on your publishing goals. We’ll work with you to find the right platforms for your book and set you up for publication in a way that maximizes your distribution, revenue, and quality.

Audiobooks

Audiobooks are quickly becoming the most common way people engage with books, allowing them “read” in the car, on a walk, or while they’re cooking dinner. By creating an audiobook, you’ll expand your market of potential readers. We can help you both create and publish your audiobook. You can narrate it yourself or we’ll find a good narrator for you.

Case Study:

(Step)Mom: A Dual Memoir 

We worked closely with authors Erin Gipford and Tina Gipford to publish their book, (Step)Mom — A Dual Memoir: How We Navigated Divorce, Remarriage & Co-Parenting With The Same Goal. . . Happy Children. We conceived of and designed their cover, formatted the interior of the book, and published it in paperback and ebook formats so readers could buy it anywhere books are sold online.

Author of Looking Out From Within

Without the fateful recommendation of Launch My Book, I would never have been able to navigate the truly complicated world of book launching. Joel and Laura served not just as my right hand people, but my left hand and two feet as well. They helped me more than I ever envisioned. I honestly could not have accomplished what I have without his help.
