Special Considerations For Self Publishers

Self publishing can be a fulfilling experience. It can also be extremely profitable. For example, a small 100 page book that might cost $4 -$5 a copy (at The most) to produce can be sold for as much as $15. A profit margin of over 200%. There are, however, some special things you might consider in deciding whether you should self-publish or not:

  • Is your book well written and of the quality that will make it worthy of being printed?
  • Have you studied the craft by attending a Creative Writing workshops, classes and/or seminars?

(If you are in the Detroit Area, I highly recommend that join one or both of the writers groups like the Detroit Writer's Guild ( or The YMCA Writers Voice ( Both organizations have excellent training programs.

  • Has your manuscript been critiqued by a qualified editor?
  • Have you attempted to engage an agent and was rejected?
  • Have you tried submitting your manuscript to a national publisher and was rejected?
  • Are you willing to do your own marketing?
  • Can you afford to self publish a book?

If your answers to all of the above is... Yes, and you still feel strongly about your book, then you are a good candidate for self publishing.


Our prices are more than competitive and our quality exceptional. 

We take special pride in each individual project. Self publishers will benefit because our prices are less than half what is demanded by national subsidy publishers. We, however, do not offer marketing, distribution, or promotional assistance.
