Legacies & Memories

1)  Traditional Publishing

We publish the book at our expense without requiring an author’s investment.

2)  Traditional-Plus

The author has no investment, but must sell a specified quantity of books within six months. If not, the author then pays $825, which is one-half of the price of The Professional Writer Publishing Package listed in Co-publishing.

3)  Co-Publishing

Legacies & Memories offers four publishing packages in which the author makes an investment and we provide Customized Services to publish the book and make it available for sale at entities such as amazon, barnesandnoble.com and many others.

Customized Services Included in All Co-publishing Packages:

  • A specified quantity of books shipped FREE to the author
  • Custom design and layout of front and back cover and interior pages
  • Choice of numerous page-trim sizes
  • ISBN and barcode
