Book Packaging

Do you have a manuscript sitting in a drawer gathering dust?

Publishing through traditional channels is a difficult, demanding process. Editors select manuscripts not just for the worthiness of the content but proven salability. Once published, authors are typically expected to do their own publicity. And a book's royalty rates are often less than 10% of the cover price.

Consequently, some authors decide to take their literary fate into their own hands and self-publish rather than enduring the aggravations of traditional publishing. Alcuin Communications can help you self publish.
