Our Services

We offer end-to-end services for authors: Copy Editing, Technical Formatting, Revisions, Proofreading, and Publication!
Copy Editing
Publish a book that you will be proud to say is your own! Our professional editors will make sure your manuscript meets the requirements of Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing and other print on demand publishers. Everyone needs editing whether by us or someone else. No one reads a book that is filled with grammatical errors or poor sentence structure. Even if you do not publish with us, you will need your book edited. Prices start at $500.

Discount Available if you choose a complete publishing package.
Technical Formatting
We publish paperbacks and Kindle through print-on-demand companies like Amazon’s KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing). Technical formatting can be an overwhelming task. Most people do not want to spend the time it takes for continual revisions until it is right. One missing page break or spelling error can take 30 minutes to correct. The wrong size cover or gutter issues can take a couple hours up to a few weeks to address. The service is optional should you want to complete it yourself. Prices start at $400.

Discount Available if you choose a complete publishing package.
All documents undergo some revisions as editing and formatting take place. In addition, editor suggestions may need to be incorporated into the manuscript. This is an iterative process designed to improve the quality of your completed work.
After the manuscript is finalized from the prior activities, proofreading will be done to carefully check for errors, mistakes, typos, and formatting issues before the manuscript is submitted for publishing.
This is where it all comes together! We are a full-service publishing house. As a hybrid publisher, the author pays the cost of preparing the manuscript for publication. Anchor Book Press, Ltd completes editing and formatting, provides an ISBN, and arranges printing and listing on Amazon. Books published by us carry our imprint of Anchor Book Press. Your book will automatically be sold through Amazon. Your published book can be featured on our book page at no additional cost to you.
