02.

Who do you work with?

We enjoy working with a diverse range of non-fiction authors, organizations, and independent presses. Our primary topics include: science, technology, policy, anthrozoology, environmentalism, ethics and welfare, health, human performance, psychology, education, memoirs, business, and history.

03.

How long does this take?

Our full-service book packages tend to take about 12-16 weeks. Services for shorter projects—such as workbooks, reports, booklets, magazines, and marketing materials—will take less time. For all service offerings, you receive a production schedule to help you with planning.

04.

Are you a vanity press?

No. We work with select authors and organizational presses, and support works we believe merit publication. Authors who use our services maintain their own imprint and accounts, and retain copyright, creative and licensing control, and royalties for their work.

05.

Do you ghostwrite?

We do not staff ghostwriters, but we can suggest resources for providers that help with manuscript writing.

06.

Should I self-publish or publish traditionally?

There are many reasons authors choose to self-publish, such as shortening the production timeline, maintaining creative freedom, and retaining publication rights and royalties. Many organizations run their own, independent publishing divisions to support their missions. We are happy to chat with you about whether self-publishing or traditional publishing is right for you.
