Izzard Ink is giving self-publishinga good name.
You may think of self-publishing as synonymous with vanity presses, but we have proven it doesn’t have to be. To be sure, helping authors publish their books can be a truly valuable service. But in the absence of professional guidance, many otherwise talented authors suffer the fate of seeing their name on a book of substandard quality.
That’s not how Izzard Ink does self-publishing.
Self-Publishing at Izzard Ink
It can be hard for authors to get the attention of major publishing houses such as Random House or Simon & Schuster. It can be a little like breaking into show business — you need talent, but you also need luck. You need a hand up so you can get to the right place at the right time. And if you never get that hand up, you might be relegated to an undeserved lifetime of obscurity.
Here at Izzard Ink, we give authors that hand up. Whether our authors go on to sign contracts with big publishing houses or they opt to retain more control — and keep more of the profits — by staying with a self-publishing firm, the bottom line is that working with us gives them more choices.
We don’t merely take your money in exchange for printing your words on a page (although we do offer print broker services). We provide collaborative publishing services through editing, design, marketing, distribution and more in order to help ensure your success.
Our Self-Publishing Company Works for You
One major benefit of self-publishing is that the author always remains in control, calling the shots. This is not something you will find at a major publishing house. When you sign a book contract with them, you sign away a lot of your rights. That’s why you see so many disgruntled authors (and musicians). Lawsuits are rampant.
A major publishing house makes an investment in its authors, and it wants its money back, plus a profit. They decide how to accomplish this, not the author.
At Izzard Ink, our revenue comes from our customers, and they are the authors.
