FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How long does it take to get a finished copy in my hands?
A: Once Author/Publisher decides to accept our book publishing consulting and project management services, we send you a chapter development outline and an interior development outline to begin your project. Once you complete the interior content, you will email it to your client services rep to review. Once we confirm that we have received the complete interior content from Author/Publisher from that day you are looking at 30 to 90 days depending on the edits and changes requested by the Author/Publisher.
Q: How long does it take to design my book cover?
A: It takes approximately 5 – 10 days depending on the changes requested by Author/Publisher.
Q: Do I have ownership of my interior content?
A: Yes, we provide the Author/Publisher, Book Publishing Consulting and Self Publishing Project Management.
Q: Who will distribute my book?
A: We optional distribution services to Author/Publisher through our distribution deal with Ingram Distribution. Ingram distributes most of the Publishing Houses in the United States and United Kingdom.
****Please Note: We highly recommend that Author/Publisher does self distribution to control pricing, orders and fees from returns and other fees related to distribution services that are difficult to track. Most Booksellers like Barnes and Noble and Amazon.com will accept your book when submitted by Author/Publisher.
With the internet the playing field has been leveled. Author/Publisher will receive a higher profit by selling from your own website. With distribution the Author/Publisher has to market their title so why not send your prospects to purchase your title from your own website when using your own marketing dollars. Why drive your customers to Amazon.com com, when you can drive your customer to yoursite.com.

A: No, since we are only providing Book Publishing Consulting and Project Management we are not entering into an agreement with Author/Publisher to receive royalty payments.

A: Yes, we do not pay for this service. Author/Publisher pre-edits the content and we post-edit the content to save money. Before book goes to print, Author/Publisher will do a final content review.
