Publishing Your Book Yourself?

There are many reasons that you may want to publish your book yourself. More control, fewer expenses, and if your book is successful, more return on your investment. But it’s not as simple as it seems.

If you aren’t going the full-service route like WingSpan Press, your major options are Amazon Createspace and Kindle, Ingram Spark, or Lightning Source, or even Smashwords, Bookbaby or Lulu. There are a lot of options out there for those who choose to go it alone.

BUT, the do-it-yourself sites require you to do it yourself, i.e. they expect you to do all of the layout, design, and all the technical file preparation. You can’t just send them your Word document and expect a book in return. All of their detailed specifications can present a daunting hurdle even to authors with experience in Adobe Indesign or Photoshop.

Here’s where we can help.

Let us handle as much or as little of the setup as you need. Already have a cover design, but need it set up for Spark? We can help. Need a professional looking layout? We can help. We can even manage the entire process, from editing to final print-ready files, but instead of publishing under the WingSpan imprint, we’ll return the files to you so that you can publish them yourself.

Print or ebook. We do it all. WingSpan Press is the only publishing services company in the industry to offer this feature. In fact, we are the ‘production department’ for more than a dozen small publishing houses. We do the work, they publish the books.
