Details: For authors who prefer to handle the printing and distribution of their books or eBooks on their own, we can help with that process. We can assist in the setup of an author’s accounts with the printer and online bookstores. We can assist the author in purchasing ISBN’s for his or her book(s). We will upload the book/eBook files for the author to ensure the proofing process goes smoothly with the printer.*
The author retains the rights to all the design work.**
Once the accounts are set up and the files uploaded, the author will work directly with the printer’s customer service representative to order books, confirm sales and royalties, pay renewal fees, and any updates.
This service can be added to any publication package.
Inkwater can also help the author with marketing and promotion of his or her book once it is released. For more information, see Marketing and Publicity.
* This service includes up to two hours of the designer’s time in assisting with the process. Additional time will be charged at our hourly rate.
**Inkwater retains the right to use the design to promote and market Inkwater services.
