Self-publishing Packages

Self-publishing a book needn’t be a headache. My professional self-publishing packages are designed to take your manuscript from draft to publication via a series of structured steps, with elements such as the editing, design and production (digital and print) all taken care of under one roof, with one-to-one support throughout. Download my Free Self-Publishing Guide to read about each stage of my unique process in more detail. (Please note: my pricing system is based on common word counts, but let me know if your book is longer or shorter than the ones provided here and I will give you an alternative quote.)
