How We Work

HOW WE WORK

We’ve done it before, and it works. Our Plan, Pick and Publish service is a proven process that
empowers every author, making their dream of creating and publishing their own book a reality.

PLAN

Izzard Ink offers a detailed manuscript assessment from expert editors, to help authors understand what kind of editing their manuscript needs, how it could be improved, where it fits into the marketplace, and whether or not it’s ready for the larger investment of publishing.  

For just $500, two independent editors, with years of experience in major publishing houses, will review up to 7,000 words and answer that burning question, ‘is it ready to be published?’.

You get:

  1. An in-depth, written manuscript assessment
  2. A one-on-one meeting with an editor
  3. An editing Action Plan document

After the assessment, you can be confident that you will have a clear direction for the next steps on your manuscript, whether that means refining it on your own or with an Izzard editor.

PICK

For each step of the process, from editing to design, Izzard will offer a selection of expert professionals with years (and often decades) of experience working on bestsellers from major publishers in your genre.

Izzard will do the legwork of researching and curating a selection of experts who are right for your book, presenting a proposal with each expert’s experience, background, and why we believe they’d be a good choice for your book.

PUBLISH

We coordinate the entire publishing process, from editing to design, distribution, and marketing. We manage communication between you, your editors, your designers, and we handle the distribution process. We manage the details while leaving the author in control of every decision. With a team of experts working for you, you can focus on what authors do best—writing.

Unlike publishing on your own, you don’t need to be an expert on design, editing, and distribution to publish a quality book, and you don’t need to leave time for a full-time job self-publishing your book. But you’ll still enjoy the ease and control of self-publishing that’s made it such a popular option. It’s the best of both worlds.

Why you should choose Izzard Ink

We’re not the only way to publish a book. And we’re not the only hybrid publishing company out there. But at Izzard, our collaborative process puts major publishing talent onto your team, tailored to your book’s genre and your needs as an author. We know there’s no one-size-fits-all plan, and just like traditional publishers, we rely on top-tier talent who know how to make your book stand out in a crowded marketplace.

Working With Us

With our assessment, we take steps to make sure a book has a path to meet our design and editing standards. If it does, you’ll gain access to Izzard’s professional networks, bookstore buyers, distribution services, and expertise.

Ease and Peace of Mind

Izzard’s experienced team handles project management and the many details of book publishing, letting you stay focused on the big picture direction of your project.
