|What you require is a professional publishing consultant.
The OneQuill Project exists solely to provide technical assistance
to writers wishing to self-publish and maintain control of their output.
With our expertise in layout & design,
we can get your book affordably & professionally published,
taking care of the technical work you either can't do or don't have time for.
We're the publishing consultants. YOU are your own "publisher."
You own ALL copyrights to your work, and you own the books themselves ...
maintaining your own inventory, pricing, marketing, etc.
We do the initial setup, pre-print, printing/binding & reprints on request.
You (a) pay us for our service, (b) sell your books, and (c) keep all the profit.
We provide neither literary agent nor marketing/distribution services.
We simply take care of the technical business of
shepherding your words from your pages/files all the way through
pre-press and, finally, printing/binding phases of bookmaking.
We do it all inexpensively.
You can order in any quantity after the first order.
(First order = 50-book minimum required -- at production cost + shipping)
Reprints are a snap, and your book never goes out of print.
Our books are high-quality trade paperbacks with full color gloss covers.
(Hardcover option is available but necessitates a larger press run and a longer turn-around time.)
Contact us about your publishing project.
|DETAILS OF INTEREST ...
If your book has at least 50 pages, it will be perfectbound -- that means the binding will be similar to
any trade paperback that you might purchase in a bookstore.
Your book will probably be either a 6x9 or 5x8 format with a full-color gloss cover
(although other sizes are available).
The press/bindery subcontractor we use does a superb job.
You'll end up with a professionally manufactured book that you and your readers will be proud of.
If your book has fewer than 50 pages, it will have a saddlestitch (stapled) binding.
This is often preferred for short poetry chapbooks.
The OneQuill Project is your consultant, not your publisher.
If you want to include credit/copyright for your own publishing imprint, we'll do that.
YOU own the books and control your literary rights!
That means that you will make all the profit from both wholesale and retail sales
because you are in control of your own distribution process,
rather than having to take a percentage of sales.
Many 'first book' authors like this feature best of all.
(And it helps to recover your production cost faster.)
A full color cover is part of the usual, affordable package.
Bear in mind, however, that using color on inside pages becomes more expensive.
We require a 3/4 deposit of the cost estimate at the beginning of the process,
and the balance is due at time of delivery.
Once the cost of the initial layout/design/editorial work is covered on that first press run,
you can order reprints from us at any time and in any quantity,
paying only for the production cost per number of books ordered, plus shipping/handling.

|Our consulting process is not automated by machines or technology.
You'll be consulting with a human being!
| Sometimes it's just you and your pen.
That's the essence of your writing. It's honorable work. It's legitimate art.
You want to get your work in print ... but getting ripped off by a "vanity press" is the last thing you need.
