We Make a Beautiful Book Together

Let's get started!

Our standard publishing contract is $5500. Most authors invest $2000 up front, which is the threshold at which editorial and cover design work begins. The next payment of $2000 is then due before interior design work, and the remainder before the first copy is printed. We are also amenable to payment plans, with services starting at $2000 invested. 

Once you complete a transaction, we’ll send you a personalized contract to sign, if you haven’t received one from us already. If you change your mind within 24 hours of our sending you the contract, we’ll refund you. As we’re a selective publisher, if we find that your work isn’t a good fit for us, we’ll refund you. No sweat.

Select from the dropdown below the payment amount that suits you. If you’ve been given a special investment amount not listed here, select the “Choose Your Own Partial Payment” option and proceed accordingly.
