Digital Publishing Services

Some of the advantages of digital publishing:

  • No printing costs.
  • Minimal distribution costs. Worldwide distribution.
  • Your readers can read your book on a device of their choice - laptop, tablet (iPad) or smartphone (iPhone).
  • Your book adapts to the device it is read on.
  • An affordable option for new authors.
  • A new digital market for authors who already have books in print. Control your own marketing.

Accepted formats from the author

Your manuscript must be in Microsoft Word with appropriate headings for chapters, text divided into paragraphs, and images inserted where they should appear. You may use bullets and numbered lists but avoid tables. You can provide a preface and information about the author. A short title also needs to be given with the author name. Images also need to be provided as separate files.

Get your book published !

We don't accept books in pdf format. If you have converted your book from pdf to Microsoft Word then please rigorously check every detail including extra spaces, odd hyphenations, etc, etc.

Please proof read your book carefully before handing over your copy as we don't proof read and there is a charge for each error correction iteration.
