Service Packages


The Service Packages We Offer

The first step is to choose the package that best suits your project and then contact us.

 We are not a book publisher. The services we offer are book design and publishing consultation.

Essentially, we help you to become your own publisher. Our packages include:

Feel like you’re going to need more consultation time with our staff than your chosen package allots? You can add on a few sessions and ask questions to your heart’s content.

 

Need a Website?

A professional online platform is more than desirable, it is a necessity. Every author has a different vision for their website. Our web designers are here to help you fulfill that vision. We have basic web design packages starting at $800.
