First there were independent films. Then music listeners wanted to make their own music under their own labels and we had independent music. But what about authors? They were left with difficult do-it-yourself publishing or vanity presses that didn’t give the professional edge most authors were looking for. Fortunately, technology caught up with what authors were looking for and produced assisted self-publishing using Print-on-Demand technology. Now, the way books are published and get into the marketplace is changing. E-books are becoming more popular and traditional publishing houses are scrambling to make a profit on their books.
If you’re ready to join the publishing revolution and try something different, you’ve come to the right place. Balboa Press, a division of Hay House, is committed to blending the best of traditional and self-publishing models to bring you a high-quality book you can be proud of.
What is Assisted Self-Publishing?
Assisted self-publishing is for authors who are tired of waiting around to get published and are ready to shape their own destiny. If you have tried to get your book published with a traditional publisher, but for whatever reason have been unable to do so, assisted self-publishing may be a great option for you. It is also an affordable, efficient option for authors who want more control over their book publishing process than what a traditional publishing house will give you. You remain in control during the entire publishing process.
When you self-publish with Balboa Press you only pay for the packages and extra services you want – nothing more, nothing less. Another unique thing about self-publishing that is different from traditional publishers is that you retain all the rights to your book. We do not buy the rights to your book so you are free to continue to market your book to other publishers and outlets at your own pace.
Additionally, when you work with Balboa Press you will reap the benefits of our earth friendly and state-of-the-art on demand book printing technology. Print-on-Demand technology ensures that you are not left holding a large inventory of books you cannot distribute. We only print a book when it is ordered which cuts down our costs and yours.
It’s time for you to experience an affordable, efficient and professional way to publish a book. We are here to walk with you every step of the way, ensuring that all your questions are answered, your book is published to your satisfaction and you receive a book you can be proud of for a lifetime.
