The Basics

Aventine Press is a service organization. We provide the author who has decided to invest in his or her own work, the tools to bring it to fruition quickly, expertly and economically. Our services encompass everything you’ll need, start to finish, in the book publishing process while making it an easy, step-by-step experience. It’s both an extremely practical and efficient method for today’s author to get into print with the best possible results.



We Are Unable to Publish

  •  Manuscripts with more than 50 interior graphics.
  •  Manuscripts with embedded images.
  •  Manuscripts in languages other than English.
  •  Manuscripts with manual footnotes, manual headers/footers, or manual page numbering.
  •  Manuscripts containing color interior images.

Aventine Press self-publishing is committed to providing the highest quality product available and this commitment extends to the projects we accept. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse any submission or publish any works containing in our judgment; pornographic material, racist or sexist opinions, or material deemed hateful or injurious toward various cultures, groups, religions or persons. Further, it is our policy to screen submissions that are to carry our ISBN and imprint for basic quality standards.

A Note About Interior Formatting: Manuscripts that require extensive formatting may require extra work on our part. Manuscripts should be provided as single documents (files). If your book is divided into multiple documents and we are required to combine them, this will again require extra work on our part. In which case, you will be notified and we will provide you with an estimate to complete the work as prescribed, or suggest alternative formatting. Examples of these types of books may include poetry books, cookbooks, how-to books, and workbooks. Unfortunately, we may not be able to publish your manuscript with our basic service package if it doesn’t fit within our formatting guidelines.
