cover of your book is how shoppers, either online or browsing
in a brick and mortar store, will decide if they want to

As a response to the growing Print on Demand market, and
it's growing respectability, we have changed the way we
meet your publishing needs. Previously, we brokered the
printing services, and split the profits with you to recoup

and CreateSpace) or Lulu supply a book as a Print on Demand
product. In response to this changing market, we offer complete
design services, on a personal basis, at a lower cost. If
you don't buy design services to design your book from us,
or someone else, your book will not stand out.If you opt
to have us handle the design and submission of your book
to a POD system, you will be listed as author, you will
retain copyright, you will receive all the profits as "publisher"
and you will never need to pay us another dime.
