“Why do people assume I have to be famous in order to be considered a legitimate author? Who asks the neighborhood basketball player, ‘What NBA team do you play for?’ or someone who loves to paint, ‘What museum are you in?’ I write and publish because I love to.” – M. George

 

 

 

 

 

Inkwater offers a basic package that includes book design, distribution options, a marketing consultation, and copies of the book. We also have a series of packages with a complement of marketing and publicity features, including press releases, website development, review submissions, and YouTube book trailers. Each package can be customized to fit the author’s specific needs.
