Custom options

Full-color printing

Our full-color printing option is ideally suited for children’s or artist’s books, cookbooks, portfolios or photography books—any type of book that lends itself to a large format and full color.

Submitting a color manuscript for publication is just as easy as submitting a manuscript for a black and white paperback—you’ll just need to collect and prepare your image files. See our Preparing Graphics or the Author Guide for the requirements for graphics files.

Custom editing

Get the assistance of an experienced professional editor—before your manuscript is submitted for publishing—to help you make your writing polished and professional. We’ll do a thorough proofreading and copy-editing, checking spelling, punctuation, grammar and usage. We’ll also evaluate structure and flow, and make suggestions for rewriting, tightening or expanding passages, even adding or deleting sections to strengthen the impact of your work. You’re still in control—you decide which changes you want to accept.

Author’s website

Promote your book with your own website. We’ll register a domain name for you, using either your author name or your book’s title (or any other name you prefer), and provide one year of web hosting. Your website will be five to seven pages, designed to match your book(s). Pages include a home page with promotional copy, a book page linking directly to your book’s page on Amazon.com, a book excerpt, an author bio (About page), a contact page and an optional blog. We’ll enroll your site in Amazon’s Associates program so that all sales that originate from your site’s direct links will earn an additional percentage. Your site comes with email address, webmail access, and many more features.
