Assisted Self Publishing

Assisted Self Publishing is a unique method where I will take care of all the complex technicalities of publishing your book globally for a one-time fee. What this means is I will do the MS-Word Manuscript Formatting, Create the Paperback/eBook Interiors and Covers to publishing standards, and guide you to Upload, Configure, and Publish them worldwide on the distribution network below. For new authors learning all these tasks can be overwhelming and confusing. But with my assisted method, you don't have to worry about it.

       

     

Distribution

Platform-1 - Amazon International (12 Countries) - Paperback and Kindle.

Platform-2 - eBook on Apple, Kobo, B&N, Other Retailers, and Libraries.

Platform-3 - Google Play eBooks (60+ Countries) - For Android Tablets/Phones


How it Works?

Author to just provide the FINAL raw manuscript in a single MS-Word or Google Docs file. Initial chapters like Preface, Dedication, Acknowledgements, Foreword, Reviews & Praise, About the Author, etc., must also be in the same file. Then, I will handle all technical aspects like creating the correct sized interiors/covers, format them to book standards, uploading, and publishing everywhere. Your job is only to create your publishing accounts (I will guide how). Once they are created I will guide/publish your book from your* publishing accounts and you will get all royalties directly into your bank account for all sales.

Note – I won’t do any Editing, Proofreading, or Corrections to the contents. Book will be published with the exact text/image content provided by the author. But don't worry. Any text mistakes noticed after publishing can be corrected by uploading revised book files.

*Why can't you use your Publishing Account?

There are a few reasons why I don't.

First - I am not a commercial publisher. I am just a self-published author coaching other writers to self-publish their own books.

Second - Though technically I can publish your book quickly from my own publishing accounts the problem is about finance and tax hassles. If I publish your book from my accounts, then your royalty amounts will first come to my bank account (minus tax). From that amount I have to pay you by retaining my percentage and also maintain your financial paperwork for royalties. Secondly, sending money to you within India or to other countries involves various banking paperwork, commissions, minimum send limits, and annual tax forms. All these mutual activities are neither practical nor possible in the long run as I am an individual and not a company with finance staff to manage them.

Third - Instead, if I teach/guide you to publish your book from your accounts you will have 100% ownership of your account, content, and also get all royalties (30% to 70%) directly from Amazon, Google, and Non-Amazon into your bank account without my deductions. Isn't that great?

Note - After the publishing is over you can change your publishing account passwords and keep them safely.


My Esteemed Customers


Every author should begin their writing career self-publishing, even if their dream is to be with a large publisher. The key to making it as a writer is to write a lot, write great stories, publish them yourself, spend more time writing, study the industry, act like a pro, network, be nice, invest in yourself and your craft, and be patient - Hugh Howey
