We can help you with that. As we are a professional publishing house, we have the skills and experience that we can share with you. You can choose from different self-publishing bundles, or you can contact us via the link at the bottom of the page for any customized orders.

Can you help me with structural editing, copy-editing and/or line editing?

Of course we can. However, none of these self-publishing bundles includes editorial handling. You can order our editing services by adding it to your bundle of choice. Read more about our editing services here.

Can you help with distribution?

Of course, we can help you get connected and set up through self-publishing distribution channels. Once you have ordered a bundle, you can contact your Author Support Officer via email to ask about this.

We will not maintain your distribution accounts, but we can certainly help you get set up.

How long does it take to fulfill the services?

In general, you can expect your work to be ready for your approval and publication within the time frame of 3 weeks from the time editing is completed. Of course, it also depends on the number of authors with whom our team works at any given time, although we guarantee your work to be publishable within two months (unless author-specific wishes demand more time).

What if I am not happy with the finished product or service?

All our services are performed at industry-standard. If we fail to provide that level of quality, we will work on getting it up to scratch at no extra cost to you. However, we do work with your initial wishes. If your wishes change mid-process, or at the end, we can help by trying to accommodate it. This may incur extra costs if it requires more of our resources.
