Discover what flat-fee publishing assistance is and how it can help you become a published author

What Is Flat-Fee Publishing Assistance?

Trying to navigate the self-publishing market can often feel like you’re drinking from a fire hose. There are so many steps and decisions to make, and it can get overwhelming quickly. While some experienced independent authors love handling all the myriad tasks needed to prepare their manuscripts for publishing, others either consider the process mind-boggling or don’t have the time, experience or desire to take on the extra work. Publish Pros can help. Let our experienced team of editors and designers at Publish Pros show you how easy self-publishing can be, thanks to our flat-fee publishing assistance program.

What is publishing assistance?

Unlike signing a contract with a traditional publisher or book agent, publishing assistance is a fee-based publishing service that allows you to retain the rights to your book and full royalties for each book you sell.

At Publish Pros, this means you pay a one-time, upfront flat fee for our professional editing, design and distribution services. That’s it. No strings attached, no obligations, no complicated contracts. We proudly serve as your reliable, one-stop partner for everything from manuscript editing, cover design, and interior layout, all the way through delivery of your final book files for printing or distribution. We can also help you with all the promotional and marketing tools you may need to sell your book – from an author website to mugs, T-shirts, and more!

The choice is up to you

Unless you have years of traditional publishing experience or have deep connections in the publishing world, chances are you’ll need at least some professional help along your self-publication journey. Publish Pros helps you invest in your career as an independent author by partnering with you to provide the comprehensive, yet affordable, publishing services you need to make your book a reality.

Unlike other self-publishing platforms or vanity publishers that overcharge authors, provide less-than-stellar service, or try to convince you to print books you don’t need, we strive to help both new and seasoned authors maximize their greatest potential for success, in a way that fits your particular budget and needs. We believe in developing sincere, personal relationships with our authors, providing honest feedback and recommendations for only those services that help our authors publish their best work and achieve their specific goals.

At Publish Pros, we follow seven simple steps to get your book published and in front of your readers. The best part is – you choose how much or how little assistance you need! Manuscript already edited, or you have a cover design already done? No problem. Use our book production cost estimator to determine how much it will cost to get the assistance you need. We also offer several flexible payment options to make self-publishing your book affordable.
