These are services in addition to the publishing packages we offer. The following "extras" are available:
Professional cover: $95 for softcover, $120 hardcover. This includes a fully-designed photo or illustration, synopsis, author bio, etc.
Extra Warehousing: $100. Since we are a Print-on-Demand publisher, we keep only a limited supply of books on hand to reduce inventory costs and keep your prices low. This sometimes causes delays if a book sells a number of copies at once. This package will cover our warehousing costs and keep a minimum of 7-10 copies of your book in stock at all times.
Amazon Marketplace Backups: $75. If (when) your book starts selling well on Amazon, the book at times will appear as out of stock while they are waiting for more copies from Ingram. Using this new program, we will make sure a copy is available, even while Amazon is waiting for a shipment.
Copyediting/Proofing: Starting at $1.50 per 250-word page. Again, we will provide you with a firm quote before work begins.
Press Release Only: $100. This will be professionally written by PRSubmit.com. This is half of their normal price!

We can also design an ad for you in the Radio Television Interview Report Magazine, which goes to major radio and television producers across the U.S. and Canada.
Personal Storefront: In addition to the feature page you receive with most publishing packages, we will design and set up a personal website for you to promote your book (including a Flash intro).

We will take, process and distribute all orders for you. You will also have 20 Megs of webspace, so you are always free to add material.
