Enjoy the freedom of an independently published author, but have the quality reputation and resellers network of a traditional publishing house. That is what Gold-Crested Press is all about.
Gold-Crested Press seeks to inspire authors to inspire others to become their very best.
Gold-Crested Press is an imprint of Cardinia Ranges Publishing House specially for independent authors. Under this imprint we want to enable authors, who otherwise would not be published via traditional channels, to still make their work available with the same guaranteed quality and network available to large publishing houses.
As the author you retain the copyright. You decide what happens with your work and you receive the profits of every sale.
How does it work?
1 Step 1 – Write
Simply create your best work of art that inspires people to fulfill their full potential. Whether it is fiction or non-fiction, religious or secular, young adult or trade, science or culinary… It doesn’t matter. Just write your best. Just write that you want to share with the world.
2 Step 2 – Edit
Edit, edit and edit your work. It is the hardest and often least fun part of the process. However, it probably is the most important. Editing your work is more than just checking your grammar and spelling through your word processor. It is about checking the flow of the text, of individual sentences and thoughts. It is about the length of sentences, paragraphs and chapters. It is about consistency and logic, whether it all makes sense, not just to you as the author.
As part of Gold-Crested Press your work will need to be edited up to a professional standard. You can do this yourself and a third-party editing service, or you can opt for the Advanced Editing service available through us.
3 Step 3 – Choose your Bundle
Gold-Crested Press is all about quality and providing your work with the best head start possible. For this you’ll need an appealing and well-designed cover, a clear and attractive interior layout, and effective and professional marketing tools. Your work will always be unique, but you can choose how much it reflects your ideas by adding further customization.
You can choose which bundle suits your needs. Do you want to publish only in print, or do you want to add an ebook (EPUB and Kindle) edition, too? Do you want additional customization, or are you happy to choose from 10 free interior design templates? Are you happy with the advertising tools provided, or do you want advanced advertising opportunities with more exposure? Simply choose your bundle and place your order.
4 Step 4 – Join the Inspiring Authors community
Join our social community of Inspiring Authors as you place your Gold-Crested Press bundle order. Share your work with fellow writers and receive constructive feedback. Share your thoughts on the writing process and find great support or constructive dialogue.
You can use your profile as a personal page, or even as an online gateway to all your works, your blog and your social media presence. As we work on making your dream come true, you can start profiling and marketing yourself as part of a supportive online social community of Inspiring Authors.
5 Step 5 – Approve and Publish
Our team works with you to bring your work to industry-standard level of quality in all aspects. In the case it needs further editing we will let you know which options can work for you and guide you through that process.
When all is ready – cover design, book interior template and advertising pack – it will only be published when you approve it. Once approved, we will make your work available for distribution through Ingram Content Group and Amazon, and we will advertise it as part of the Cardinia Ranges Publishing House’s catalogue to resellers and libraries. From that moment, your work is ready to be ordered and you can start earning on your work.
