Girls, I still have questions:

Who will be on my team?

This is one of the most critical functions we provide. Depending on the package you choose, your production editor will select the perfect writer, image researcher, cover designer, interior designer, web designer, developmental editor, copyeditor, proofreader, and marketing strategist for you. 

How long will it take?

Production schedules are flexible, but standard print-on-demand schedules take five to six months from the date we receive your manuscript to the publication of your finished book. For offset printing, we estimate about twelve months from editorial concept to printed copies.
