Experienced Publishing Professionals Help You Achieve High Quality Results
Publishing a book can be a life-changing experience. After working so hard to develop your manuscript, your book should be an accurate reflection of your hard work. It should look like it was produced by a big New York publishing house, yet many self-published authors make the mistake of cutting corners and skipping over critical steps in the publishing process.
Your book deserves professional editing, eye-catching cover design, and the highest quality production services available.
In addition to our exceptional production and personalized service, we put books into distribution with online retailers including Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. Books are also distributed to Ingram, the world’s largest supplier of books to bookstores. This means that readers can walk into bookstores all over the world and order your book.

We Are Committed to Your Success
Authority Publishing is not an author factory. We are a custom publishing company and take pride in every title we produce. While some companies will gladly publish any book in exchange for your signature on a check, we are selective about the books we publish.
When your book is published with Authority Publishing, you can be confident that you are in good company. Your book will be published alongside other authors who take their work seriously and who have written compelling nonfiction books.
Our authors are valued clients, not commodities. You can and should expect to work with an experienced project manager who will answer your questions and assist you through the entire process of publishing your book. We aim to provide the highest level of service and make it easy for you to achieve your publishing goals.
If your goal is to get your book done fast and in the cheapest way possible, we are NOT the firm for you.
We are Not a DIY, Cut-the-Corners Option
Authority Publishing is a boutique firm run by experienced publishing industry professionals. This is not a DIY service where you upload files on a website and hope all goes well.
We don’t have a call center staffed by college students with no publishing experience. Instead, you will work with a dedicated project manager with many years of publishing experience who will be available to answer any questions you have along the way.
And we’ll even give you some marketing advice and help you develop your plan for a successful book launch and beyond. We promise you, the big box firms can’t do this.
Two Key Elements Set Us Apart:
Service – We care about our clients so much that many ultimately become our personal friends. We also hold your hand through the entire process, offer expert advice on how to get the most professional results possible for your book, and we deliver on our promises. We truly care about making our customers happy.
Quality – You might be surprised to learn that many of our “big box” competitors outsource design and even editing to freelancers in countries outside the U.S. Our team is comprised of talented professionals who are well compensated for their work, and all are based here in the good old USA.
We Know You’re Busy – Let Us Handle the Details
Authority Publishing was founded by Stephanie Chandler. When it came time to self-publish her book, she realized she was too busy to locate and hire contractors and manage all the details. And quite frankly, she didn’t want to oversee the details.
She needed a one-stop shop where she could be assured her book would be professionally produced while she focused on running her business. To meet this challenge for busy professionals like herself, Authority Publishing was born in 2008.
From the time we receive your completed manuscript, publishing projects typically take around 60 days to complete. This includes proofreading, cover design, typesetting, ebook formatting and a physical proof of your book in hand. Though we manage the many details and make suggestions along the way, it is still your book and you maintain total control over the final product. You also retain all of your rights, so if Random House comes calling after your book is released, we will wish you well and send you on your way (believe it or not, not all custom publishers will do this, even if you’ve paid them for their services).
Get Ready to Invest in Your Success
Our services aren’t the cheapest available, but we’re also far from the most expensive. Our all-inclusive publishing packages start at $7,000 and include proofreading, interior design, cover design, printed copies of your books and major distribution to Amazon, BarnesandNoble.com and other outlets. Producing a high quality book involves an investment, and it’s one we’re confident you will be glad you made.
We are committed to publishing high-quality books while assisting authors on a rewarding journey. Together we can change the world one reader at a time. Call or E-mail Authority Publishing today to discuss your publishing project and receive a custom quote: 877-800-1097.
