Start Your Own Press
If you intend to publish a book under any name that is not your own legal name, you will need to start a self-publishing company. For many people this can be a daunting task. The Self-Publishing Guide is a concise, step-by-step playbook that will lead you through the process of starting your own print-on-demand press — covering things like local business regulations, ISBNs, and registering with the Library of Congress. The Guide includes 1 hour live Q&A with a publishing specialist, and up to 3 hours of problem-solving support via email.
Branding and Marketing Services
Special pricing for self-publishers
Give your press a professional edge with a custom imprint logo. An imprint is the name and symbol you publish under. Even if this is your own name, it's a good idea to create a signature look that will build recognition among your readers.

Get started with a 5-page WordPress website tailored to your publishing company. This is a great way to publicize your book and yourself as an author.

Add a personalized and fully functional online bookstore for $200.
