The traditional publishing package is our most comprehensive package designed to produce the highest quality product. You receive the support of a five-person team – a project manager, graphic designer, editor, proofreader, and marketing consultant. We included our full editorial and marketing services to make your book the absolute best it can be. This includes a content edit, copy edit, and final proofread to take place once design is complete. The traditional package also offers the classic marketing bundle designed to generate exposure through traditional media channels, and gain traction with readers using online advertising and promotion on social media. We guarantee one media interview, one editorial review and exposure to tens of thousands of new readers.
