Self-Publishing

We publish your book with the same level of care you took to write it.

You’ve written your manuscript. Now what?

The world of self-publishing is growing rapidly as many authors are choosing to forgo traditional publishers and do it themselves. But “self-publishing” is a complex process and there is a right and a wrong way to do it. We’ll help you cut through all the confusion and work with you every step of the way to create a beautiful, professional-looking book that won’t look self-published.

Cover Design

They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover, but that’s only partially true. Your cover is usually the first element of your book that people will come into contact with, so it’s crucial that your design is clear, compelling, and fits your target audience. We work with you to create a beautiful cover that both reflects your book and appeals to readers, incorporating all the best practices that make covers pop.

 

 

Layout Design

One of the most overlooked aspects of self-publishing is the interior layout. This is essentially how your words will look on the page and includes elements like the font, the chapter titles, the spacing between sections, and the headers. We’ll work with you to create a beautiful layout that brings your words to life on the page. We’ll make a version that works for print and another that’s formatted for ebooks.

Distribution

There are many different platforms you can use to publish the various versions of your book. There are pros and cons for each of them, depending on your publishing goals. We’ll work with you to determine the right platforms for your book and then set you up for publication in a way that maximizes your distribution, revenue, and quality. We’ll cover all the details, from securing ISBNs and Copyrights, to setting you up to receive optimum royalties on all your book sales.

Audiobook Creation

Audiobooks are quickly becoming the most common way people engage with books, allowing them to “read” in the car, on a walk, or while they’re cooking dinner. By creating an audiobook, you’ll expand your market of potential readers. We can help you both create and publish your audiobook so it’s available everywhere online. You can narrate it yourself or we’ll find a good narrator for you.

Editing

All great writers need editors. Editing is often the final piece of the writing puzzle before publication. Whether it’s proofing to catch typos, copyediting to make sure your grammar is correct and language flows clearly, or deeper editing to clarify your ideas, working with an editor can take your manuscript to the next level. We can help you.

What Our Clients Are Saying…

Launch My Book helped me do exactly what the title suggests–launch my series of books with professional titles, covers, and an initial outreach/marketing strategy. These fine individuals provided me (the author) with all the tools needed to carry my project into the market. I was met with care and attentiveness throughout the entire project and truly could not have asked for a better team to work with. If looking for the “human element” in the book marketing/launching process, look no further than Launch My Book!

John Folak
