Gonic, NH, May 08, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Self Publishing Press, a company designed to help authors easily publish their own books, recently launched its newly redesigned Web site at www.selfpublishingpress.com.
Self Publishing Press relies on digital technology to print books, allowing authors to control the number of books printed and the timing of that publication. It is headquartered in New Hampshire.
The new venture’s aim is to provide a cost effective way for authors to self publish their books without waiting months or years trying to get the attention of a large publisher, explained Kevin E. Pirkey, publisher of Self Publishing Press.
Pirkey, who has spent the last 25 years in the printing and publishing industry, said today’s technologies enable authors to do for themselves that which took entire staffs just a few years ago.
“With Self Publishing Press’s support, authors can match the services of large commercial publishers and publish their books the way they want,” he said. “But with the quality and professionalism their creative works deserve. Just because they have never written a book before or don’t have the name recognition of a Stephen King doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get the same access to readers and all over the country.”
The Web site gives authors clear details about book publishing, including an Author’s Bill of Rights and an explanation of services. Also featured is the Editor’s Notebook, a posting by Teresa M. Melcher; information on book marketing; and a glossary designed to help authors traverse the self-publishing landscape.
Pirkey explained he was motivated to begin Self Publishing Press by his love of books and publishing. “I love to share in and encourage the passion of a new author for their work and the subject that they are interested in,” he said. “There is great satisfaction in seeing an author receive the first copy of their newly published work.”
Self Publishing Press offers its authors several publishing packages from which to choose. Writers can select services from its Gold Deluxe, Silver Premier or Bronze packages, which include editorial and marketing services. Also available is a Family Memories plan, which is designed for those publishing family genealogy books, cookbooks or similar works with limited distribution.
Additional copies always can be ordered from Self Publishing Press. The packages include an author web site to more easily allow for ordering reprint, and a variety of a la carte services also are available to our authors.
Melcher joins Pirkey at Self Publishing Press. She will help edit and serve as a guide for authors in the publishing process. Melcher has been writing and editing professionally for 26 years, including seven years as an editor of several newspapers in Ohio. Her mother introduced her to a love of reading and she’s hooked.
“I love books. This is a great opportunity to help authors publish their books, to share their stories,” she said. “I’m looking forward to reading a lot of great books and meeting interesting people along the way.”
