You’ve been writing for a long while. Your book has been edited professionally. You are ready to get your independently-published book into your readers’ hands. Let’s explore and execute options for packaging and printing your self-published memoir.
Since I have no experience with a commercial publishing house and almost none of the writers I have worked with since 1988 have gone to one, I do not include information here about publishing your memoir via a publishing house as an option—although much of the information here may be indirectly useful to you if you go the commercial route.
Your Story + Our Production Expertise = A Real Book
We offer a full menu of Book Production Services for the first-time, one-time, or experienced author. We have the technical expertise needed to design and prepare your book for printing.
Publishing your own book allows you to:
• retain full control of the text, the design and the illustrations,
• act immediately on your goal of completing your project,
• make a book that reflects your taste, budget & dream.
Call 207-353-5454, M-F, 9-5 ET, or email us to set up an appointment.

In this video, Sending Your Independently-Published Book Out Into the World, we’ll discuss the benefits of self-publication, not the least of which are that you can control production decisions—design, schedule, launch—and can often generate (for the unknown writer) more income than in the commercial route. Of course, learning what you need to know about production, marketing strategy, and regular execution can be a steep learning curve.
