Author Services

Each book project is as unique as you, the author. We are proud of the personalized services we provide our authors. Depending on your needs, we offer a wide range of the expert services.

The first step: Simply contact us for a free 30-minute consultation.

Where are you in your book-writing process?

If you have an idea for a book but haven't yet written anything down:

If you've written your manuscript but know it needs some polishing:
  • Contact Goblin Fern Press for a FREE 30-minute consultation
  • Submit a book proposal and three chapters for a FREE 3-chapter read
  • Submit your entire manuscript for:
    • A one-time manuscript review to see if your book is ready for publishing (we'll provide a written analysis that points out strengths and weaknesses, market opportunities, etc. for a fee)
  • Editing (level of editing needs to be determined on the basis of your FREE 3-chapter review

If your manuscript has already been edited and polished and you're ready to move forward to publish your book, or if your book is out of print and your current publisher doesn't want to reprint, contact us to review your publishing options:

Publishing Options:

  • Self-publishing - You obtain ISBNs, copyright, work with designers, typesetters, etc. (see publishing process). (The Publishing Institute is available for self-publisher consulting)
  • Custom publishing with Goblin Fern Press under one of our imprints (CLICK TO imprints). Together, we'll create a customized publishing agreement for your book, audio book, or e-book (or all three).
  • Publishing with large publisher- You're ready to submit your manuscript to a large publisher. You'd like some help with a proposal or query letter. Goblin Fern Press can help here, too.

Distribution and Fulfillment:

To ensure that you--the author--receive the highest returns on your investment, Goblin Fern Press does not provide distribution or fulfillment services. (Booksellers, wholesalers, and distributors require discounts of up to 70% of your book's retail price). We would be happy to provide you with the names and contact information for reliable distribution and fulfillment services. As part of the publishing process, we will also show you how to get your book on Amazon.com, into bookstores, and into the hands of your reader.

Book Marketing:

Whether you publish your book yourself, work with a custom publisher, or become published by a larger publisher, you – the author – are responsible for marketing your book. The Publishing Institute offers teleseminars and individualized book coaching and consulting services to help you maximize your marketing efforts.

Goblin Fern Press is a member of the Publishers Marketing Association and can also provide you with creative ways to get the word out about your book.
