You will receive one cover design proof, and may make unlimited corrections to that design. A premium cover service is available at an additional cost of €200. This gives you three different cover design options (proofs). You select one of these options to be fully developed as your book cover. You may propose unlimited corrections to your selected proof.

Copyright is retained by you

Should you require a print-only package for a book that is simply for your personal enjoyment, or that you wish to produce as a family memento, please contact us for print-only prices.

However, the huge growth in eBooks and digital readers offers unprecedented sales opportunities for independent authors and we recommend that all books produced for print are also released as eBooks. We will help you produce your eBook to the highest possible standard and we will distribute it to the widest possible readership. Publishing digitally is essential for every author in today’s marketplace.
