How long does it take?
Generally, it takes about 8 to 12 weeks to see your book in print.
Who holds the rights to my book?
You hold your own rights to your manuscript. Our publishing agreement is author-friendly and allows you to take your book to another publisher if you so desire. The manuscript will always remain your work and will always be in your name and ownership.
What will my book look like?
We will work with you to produce an attractive page layout for your book as well as an inviting cover that will best connect with your readers.

Can I have my book listed on my website and social media?
Yes! You may promote and sell your book on your own website and social media.
Who determines the retail price of my book?
The retail price is determined by your book’s page count. You will set it for your book.
Will my book have an ISBN?
Yes. Your book will be given the International Standard Book Number required by book sales channels to track and order your books. Partnership Publications will put a Bookland/EAN bar code on your book’s cover.
Who owns the copyright to my book?
You do. When you wrote your book, you automatically asserted copyright ownership. You may also register with the U.S. Congress Copyright Office, which records this ownership more formally, gives you better recourse in case of infringement, but it is not required.
Do you offer editorial services?
Yes! We can edit your book. We can correct sentence or paragraph construction, as well as correct spelling and punctuation errors. We won’t change your style of writing or alter your content. We also will give you suggestions for improving your text.
