Below is a list of frequently asked questions about our company and services. Do you have a question not covered here? Please reach out by completing our contact form.
We assist authors with self-publishing their books, from writing, coaching, editing, book design, cover design, eBook conversion, consulting, and project management to developing strategic marketing plans. Depending on your needs, we can do everything as a fixed fee project or a-la-carte.
We meet clients via Skype, Zoom or by phone.
No. We help authors successfully self-publish their books, which means they will be the publisher.
Yes, you retain 100% of your book’s rights and royalties when you work with Publish and Promote.
Our turnaround time depends on many factors, including:
If you would like an estimate of our turnaround time for your book, please contact us and we will be happy to get you an estimate. In addition, if you have a very tight deadline, we can often work with you on options to meet that deadline.
We prefer you send your book’s manuscript to us as a Microsoft Word file, double-spaced, 12- or 13-point font size. If possible, all material should be in a single Word document (introduction, body, author bio, source references, etc.).
You can send your files as an email attachment to authorservices AT publishandpromote DOT ca, or we can provide you with a DROPBOX link for larger files.
As a self-publisher, you are responsible for obtaining the ISBN for your book, but we can help guide you through that process! Depending on your country, ISBNs can be obtained or purchased through a national ISBN registry service.
We are not printers. Most authors we work with use Print-On-Demand printers, such as IngramSpark or Amazon KDP. A few use offset printers. We can assist you in finding a North American-based printer based on your needs. We can also help you get the book set to their specifications and submitted to them.
