The Self Publishing Agency loves storytellers. If you’re a writer who wants to become an author, we’re the agency to make that dream a reality.
Think of us like wedding planners for indie authors. You can plan a wedding on your own, but, if you want to work with someone who understands the indie-industry and the professionals and services to work with, we’re here to help.
Why Chose Us?
Build your own dream team. We believe it’s important for authors to build a team they can connect with. We have a hand-selected, list of professional editors and experienced designers for writers to chose from.
You get what you pay for. We have set up our publishing agency so writers only pay for what they use. We want all authors to get value no matter what their budget or circumstance. (Ex. If you want to illustrate your children’s book, why would you be told you have to for an illustrator?)
No automated processes, all human connection. Sure, some publishing services have efficient automated systems. But that’s not us. We LIKE talking to our clients on the phone. Our Project Managers LOVE to send personalized reminders that a deadline is coming up. Our designers and editors THRIVE when they make your book become the best version of itself. Our team is MOTIVATED by your success. All of the feelings we get when your book goes from page to bookshelf – we can’t get that from a computer, we get that from human connection.
Our authors get into bookstores. Remember that age-old fable that indie-authors can’t get into big box bookstores? While that might be true for some, we work with authors on individual strategies to get your book in the game, on the shelf and playing with the big kids.
We stay involved after your book has launched. Full transparency – book sales and marketing your work is hard. It’s risky, it’s very personalized work and takes more than a “Here’s how you set up your social media” PDF to do it well. Therefore, we understand why some publishing support services wipe their palms after a book is uploaded and printed. We’re not judging.
But, fortunately for our clients, post-launch planning is one of our favourite parts of the business! We love coming up with strategies to keep the sales flame alive – months after your story has launched.
