Book Publishing Services

Book publishing services for self-publishers with Izzard Ink offers options and expertise while providing you, the author, the royalties and involvement that you only get with self-publishing. Our services are provided à la Carte to allow you to call the shots.

From a custom cover to the complete package of copy and content editing, cover design and layout, to distribution and marketing, we have you covered.

Collaborative Publishing

In today’s do-it-yourself publishing world many authors are asking, “I’ve got all these software tools, why I can’t do it myself?” That’s like saying “I just bought a scalpel, let’s see what I can do about this headache.”

Specialized help makes all the difference.

The best books come from collaboration—by assembling the best talent to handle your book’s presentation needs so you are free to focus on your writing.

Writers are a jealous, fickle bunch. Find in them the most gracious, passionate people on earth, but try meddling in their vision and beware the mamma bear coming for her cub!

That’s why collaboration works so well. While Izzard’s team of experts can deal with the extras that detract from research and creativity, the authors are left free to guide, direct and approve rather than invent those things from scratch.

MARKETING

Most authors don’t understand the power of on-line and other book-marketing techniques and strategies. Today, it’s much more than just emailing your friends, it’s accessing millions of readers.

3 Keys To Publishing Success – Find, Pick, Execute

The Izzard process is an eye-opener for self-publishers. “I’m just a writer,” most of them tell us. That’s a valid claim, but the innovator (you) knows when your dream is finished, and if it looks right, feels right, and reads right.

Our writers often pick up their first copy of a completed book with a sense of awe—they’ll thumb through the pages, flip it over, turn it back, and then we see it form on their faces: That great grand smile of relief, peace and satisfaction—and then those validating words: “Yes, that’s what I was looking for.”
