Welcome to Authors Publishing With Us!

Congratulations for taking this important step in your author’s life, and welcome to authors publishing with us!

We are pleased to count you among our soon-published authors!

In order to make the publication of your book as seamless as possible, we will ask you to provide us all of the following elements. Please make sure you send them all together (and not separately) and double check them all to make sure they have no mistake of any sort.

  • Your complete manuscript (in word format – .doc – please do not format your text with bold, italic, tabs, colors or anything like that. We need to remove all formatting before we can start publishing and reformatting it in our system. Make sure you have your text checked again for typos, grammar, style, spelling, punctuation. Your minimum word count should be 20,000 or above. The best size for eBooks is around 100,000 to 120,000 words. Please note that we publish only text, so don’t send photos to illustrate your pages!)
  • A photo of you (it could be a drawing, an illustration, a picture. Just make sure it is high resolution, clear, and clean)
  • Your biography (in about half a page, tell us about you as an author, your background and inspiration, if you have published books already, etc)
  • A short description of your work (It will be used to market your book on our site, and shared with some retailers. Please no email, hyperlink, or promotion. Your description should be a single paragraph in complete sentences, limited to 400 characters or less)
  • A long presentation of your work (An extended version of the above, needed for promotion purpose. Again, no email, hyperlink, or promotion. Try to raise the curiosity of the reader and want to learn more about your book. Minimum 600 characters, maximum 4,000)
  • Your Paypal email and Skype contact (We need to update our files with your payment info. Also you will be automatically opted in to our Authors newsletter to keep you in the loop about what is going on on our side. Please do not opt out as this method will be used to send you important information)

Once you have all these files ready, please do double check them again for typos, grammar, style, spelling, punctuation… The better the files you send, the better your final book will be. If you are 100% confident that they are OK, click on the button below to start the submission of your files (this will first take you to our Paypal payment platform, then redirect you to our file submission form once your payment complete):

Once we received the file, usually within 3 working days, we will inform you if they passed our quality control. If not, we will let you know what are the issues so that you can correct them. If they are fine, you will immediately receive your contract to sign via our partner Echosign.

Once all the files we receive are correct, it will take us between 1 to 2 weeks to complete your book, depending on our workload. You will be immediately informed as soon as it is finished.

Until then, we strongly advise you to start preparing the promotion of your title by checking our promotion tips.

Thank you, and see you soon on the bookshelves of the major online distributors!
