Do not live with fear of “what if?” Or what could have happened instead embrace what life has to offer with vitality. Live without fear of failure because you only fail when you do not attempt to succeed. Failure is a learning experience; without failure you have learned nothing. Take a deep breath, inhale slowly, and exhale slowly. Take charge of your manuscript and tell your story. Show the world who you are supposed to be with pride.
My mission is to aid novice writers see their lifelong dream come true. Helping them along their creative journey each step of the way, advocating on authors’ behalf that the masses can have access to their fresh genuine talented literature. Don’t shy away from your dreams of being published due to fear. Make contact and experience the personal attention you and your manuscript deserve.
Take that first baby step, seize your old manuscript off the shelf. Give a solid hardy puff and blow plethora years of dust off. Freeing your creative muse now permeating the room and send it my way. It will cost you nothing but manual time and a bit of postage to have it evaluated for possible publication. Whatever you do, don’t live with the regret of “What ifs” when your manuscript can be read for consideration.
You have a wealth of first-
I began offering these services when noticing how difficult it was for people to see their life-
The individuals seeking me out are not vain, not seeking fame and not blinded by devil’s fortune. These authors are people just like you wanting to share themselves, their experiences, their creativity with others. One author dying of cancer wanted published book of his poem collection for gifts at a 40th wedding anniversary. Others have had a dream since teen years of having their own published book. Some individuals have come to me because they want the last word with family and friends when they die. The request has been myriad and reasoning’s behind their decision as varied.
I permit authors use of my own imprints to give their books a more finished and professional look. Library of Congress Numbers, ISBN and bar codes can to included should author want their book ready for resell.
A traditional publisher’s investment would be $80,000 to ready a single author’s book. Authors looking to self-
I do everything myself to ready an author’s book including: editing, grammar, typesetting, proofing, galley proofs, author correction and or changes, front and rear cover design, shipping to author. I farm out printing of books a cost I have no control over. I use my own funds to cover general expenses such as ISBN numbers, Barcodes etc.… then invoice author to recoup. I am NOT providing a loan to any author as they are given an estimate of their book cost with printing prior to initiating book project. I work as closely with their budget to see author’s book to fruition.
I cannot take on more than ten individuals a year as time does not permit it. But the ones I can help realize their ambitions. They won’t see cost anywhere near those stated above as most of the expensive is handled by me for free. On my fees page (fees page is available for you to compare your savings when receiving a quote) you can easily calculate how pricey your book could be to see it published elsewhere.
Unfortunately, I have had a few authors leave me bearing cost as they refuse to pay for expenses I incurred from their book project. This clearly demonstrates to me their lack of Christianity toward my generosity to aid them recognize a dream. They are nothing more than dishonorable deadbeat thieves in which litigation must ensue. I will not be able to take on ten people this year due to non-
