Imagine how your book could turn out if you work side by side with the very best people in publishing, the same professionals that help put traditionally published bestsellers on bookstore shelves. With Izzard Ink, you pick your team and make sure they share your vision. That is what the Get Ink’d package is all about. You remain in control while we help build a team to make your publishing vision a reality. A publishing consultant acts as your main contact, providing personalized attention and managing the project, allowing you to make creative decisions while the team turns that vision into reality. The package can be customized to meet the needs of each author, but the pricing below gives you a general idea of what the package covers. Keep in mind, we need to see every manuscript before providing a firm, custom quote.
