Legacies & Memories

1)  Traditional Publishing

We publish the book at our expense without requiring an author’s investment. This option is primarily for authors who have previously demonstrated they are capable of selling large quantities of books.

2)  Co-Publishing

Legacies & Memories offers two 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 online entities such as amazon, barnesandnoble.com and many others. Authors receive royalties from online sales.
