Print Formatting Showcase

Publishing in Print?

No matter where you go, you'll read that publishing your book in print is "easy."  That anyone can do it. That all you need is Word, and a freebie PDF-printer, and bob's-yer-uncle, as they say. Or that you can buy a "template" for $49.95 and you're set.  And sure--we'd never claim that it's impossible for someone with a fair amount of skill in their word-processor, and determination, to make a decent book in print.  But there's more to a print book than type on a page. A book isn't just a file in Word; it's layout, typography, font, and feel.  You know as well as we do that you've already seen some doozies on Amazon and other places. Maybe at Goodreads.  What matters is:  you don't want to be one of the folks who gets it wrong.  Wrong formatting can, quite simply, kill your book and kill your sales. after everything you've gone through to get your book to this point, don't settle for second-rate or bad formatting.  Remember: you make money when you are writing. Not when you're formatting! You do your part, and leave the driving to us.


 

 

Remember our Fallen

Memorial Day, originally called "Decoration Day" was created
to honor those who have been slain in defense of the US.

As many of our returning customers know, we close on the holidays to recharge our batteries, as we're normally open 6/days/week.  As a former servicemember, I feel strongly that Memorial Day should be observed--and remembered.  

We'll be closed, administratively, from 5:00 p.m, the night of May 24th 2019 through the morning of May 28th 2019.  Production will be full-tilt boogie while the office is closed, but in Admin, phones will not be answered and emails will only receive auto-replies until we're back on our regular schedule. Books that are in production will be shipped, fear not.  

Thanks, and have a happy and safe--and memorable--Memorial Day.
