Scrivener Books

Getty Images (US), Inc.Tired of playing the odds to find a publisher? Want to maintain all your book rights and make more money per copy sold?

You could self-publish on your own, but there’s a learning curve! You have to set up your publishing imprint, get your ISBN and bar code, coordinate printing and shipping, deal with eBook technology, and get any and all versions of your book listed for sale on Amazon and beyond.

Why not let an expert handle these details for you? Scrivener Books takes care of all the unknowns and transforms your finished book into a published paperback, eBook, audiobook, and/or hardcover. Once we get you set up, you keep all the profit and all the control.

Paperback and Hardback Services

For printed books, we will coordinate with your book editor and designer so we can do the following for you:

  • Create your book’s interior and cover
  • Provide galley proofing
  • Assign your book the required ISBN and bar code. (If you’re arranging your own printing and all you need is an ISBN and bar code, please contact us.)
  • Help you determine the best cover price for your book, so you can control how much profit you make on each copy sold.
  • Set up your masterpiece for on-demand printing. Our books come in a variety of trim sizes, with glossy or matte full-color covers and your choice of white or cream paper inside. Whenever you want, you can order your book at cost, from one copy to one thousand copies or more.
  • Get your book live on Amazon.com, and all other major online retailers, so people can buy it! We will then turn the reins of your online publishing account over to you, so you can check your sales reports whenever you want and collect all the profits. (We also offer the option of account management so there’s less hassle for you.)
  • Input your title into the worldwide “Books In Print” database. Information about your book will then become visible to thousands of retailers, libraries, and online services.
  • And much more!
