We can guarantee that, forever, and we think that’s important for professional writers and we know that’s one reason writers choose us over a plethora of online options.  We charge a one-time fee for all of the publishing services we offer. And no more. Ever

Why we will never take a percentage: We want to empower you, the author, to stay in charge of your writing business, and the first step to that goal? Hold on to your future profits. Invest now, and not for the rest of the life of your book.
