Digital and Print-On-Demand Publishing
For independent authors who wish to maintain complete control of their work to include the rights, marketing, and distribution, we offer the option to digitally upload their story for publication. What this includes is that upon submission we review the manuscript to ensure it is formatted correctly for digital upload and that it conforms to the requirements of the independent digital publishing platforms. We design and develop a quality, eye-catching book cover, place all the necessary hyperlinks, and author profile information, as well as an author account to which the author would have complete control over and exclusive access. Currently we operate with Kindle/Amazon and Smashwords for digital publication. Once the manuscript with the book cover are uploaded and published the story is made available through Amazon, Barnesandnoble.com, the Apple Store, Sony, and several other ebook retailers world-wide. Additionally, if requested we also upload and format the manuscript so that it conforms with the requirements to make the book available for print-on-demand paperback through Amazon.com, as well as for purchase by the author for independent distribution/sale. Phantazie Publications will provide our house label for the author, however, the author maintains complete control over the rights to the story and is responsible for brick-and-mortar retail bookstore distribution and sales. Contact us via the Contact/Submissions Page for details, as well as pricing that is tailored to your specific needs. firstname.lastname@example.org
