We Offer a Standard, Premium and Children's Picture Book Option

The selection criteria for our hybrid program is identical to our traditional publishing platform, with the only exception being that we require authors in our traditional program to have an existing and sizable platform. Hybrid authors contribute to the costs of production but retain a majority of the royalties. Evaluation of your manuscript is free and if selected for publication there is no obligation to accept.
