Like many Print On Demand publishers we work with Lightning Source, Inc. a major printer providing a truly remarkable avenue into the publishing world. The product Lightning Source produces is considered a standard in the industry. They provide excellent craftsmanship and perform ten quality control checks on each book shipped so your books go out perfect every time. The quality of your book will compare favorably with commercially published, mainstream books. On-demand printing allows you to avoid the costs of large inventory, storage, order processing and shipping/handling fees associated with vanity presses. You are able to keep your titles in print and before the public so you can focus on generating sales and writing you next bestseller.

Lightning Source handles printing, distribution and order fulfillment and provides a monthly Sales Compensation Report. We convert this sales information along with sales reports from other areas listed below, into one quarterly Authors Compensation Report which is sent to you by email approximately 20 days after the end of the quarter.
Unlike many other Print On Demand companies we are selective about the books we publish. If you've ever queried Random House or any other mainstream publisher, you know they reject more than 80% of the works submitted. Please do not take it personally if we decline to publish your manuscript.
We provide complete editing and page set-up with every publishing package. We want to make your book everything it can be. When the time comes to publish every book should have a professional edit and we give it to you as a part of our publishing packages. No author can be expected to final edit their own book. It takes a fresh eye and a fresh perspective.
Editing services of this quality and scope can cost thousands of dollars on the open market. We encourage you to check.
