Starting with

Self-Publishing

Self-publishing in a sense can serve as a great launching pad. Many notable authors have published their own books- just to name a few:

  • Andy Weir (The Martian)
  • John Grisham (The Firm, A Time to Kill, The Client)
  • E.L James (Fifty Shades of Gray)
  • Lisa Genova (Still Alice)
  • Amanda Hocking (the Trylle Trilogy)
  • James Redfield (The Celestine Prophecy)

The Power of

The Author

The Author
Self-publishing, coupled with Print On Demand (POD), is quickly becoming an industry standard for getting published.  It allows you, the author complete control over publishing your own book.

With many large publishing companies, you have to submit your manuscript and wait for a response.  This can be very time-consuming and it can also be very difficult finding the appropriate publisher. You can face the probability of it not being accepted; this is not to say the manuscript is not worthy of publication, it simply means you don’t have the backing to get your book noticed.

Print on demand (POD) is simply a method of book production used as an alternative to, and increasingly in conjunction with the more traditional offset printing methods. Print on demand books are stored electronically and individually printed as they are ordered. Because print on demand books can be produced quickly and inexpensively, with little discernible difference in appearance from that of the offset printed book, its use has gained wide acceptance among publishers and self-published authors.

WE CAN HELP

Aventine Press, the author friendly self-publishing company is a relatively small publishing company but because we partner with Lightning Source Inc., a subsidiary of Ingram Industries Inc., we can offer our authors delivery channels to more than 90% of all retail bookstore outlets in the USA.

Our print on demand titles are listed on Ingram databases and are ordered by booksellers through the same methods they usually use – electronic ordering, telephone, fax, and mail.

 

FLEXIBILITY & QUALITY

Our standard paperback trim size is 5.5″x 8.5″ but we can produce trade paperbacks and jacketed hardcovers with 4-color covers in two trim sizes, 5.5″x8.5″ and 6″x9″. Books that are virtually identical to offset-printed originals. In fact, you would be hard-pressed to tell the difference. We produce clean graphics, vibrant 4-color covers, and easy-to-read text.

QUIET PROFESSIONALISM

Most of our clientele come to us as referrals from authors we have worked for in the past. Our reputation for excellence in customer service, book cover designs, interior layout and author web page design is second to none in the industry.

PEOPLE MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

Many self-publishing companies today use automated processes for page layout and even copy-editing which can lead to undesired results. At Aventine Press, we employ talented people to perform these tasks, not machines.
