Publication Management

Our publication management services provide authors help with the nuts and bolts of self-publishing. We offer two services:  a complete print on demand setup package for authors who want us to take care of the process for them and consultation for those who want to do their own setup but want some guidance.

Print on demand setup

$1,250

 

We take care of setting up your book for sale through print on demand. We start with a one-hour meeting to discuss your options within the setup process. After that, we complete the following tasks on your behalf:

 

  • Purchase and assign your book’s ISBN(s)

  • Register your book with the US Copyright Office

  • Register your book in the Library of Congress’s Preassigned Control Number program

  • Set up your account(s) with IngramSpark and/or Kindle Direct Publishing

  • Set up your book for sale and work with you to refine your book’s metadata (description, key words, BISAC classifications)

  • Set up your Amazon author page

Publication consultation

$100 per hour

For authors who want to do their own publication setup or have questions about the publication process in general, we offer consultation via phone, video chat, or in-person (for those in the Portland, Oregon, area). Authors are asked to prepare a full list of questions they want answered in advance of the meeting to ensure they get the full value of their time.
