Frequently asked questions

General Queries

Can I learn a little more about the design support?


When it comes to formatting a book, Authors can choose their book sizes..From here, all the formatting and structuring of the book is done using advanced technology -- the same technology that we use to publish and print industry standard books.




I have a friend... he knows what he wants to write, and has the first 4 chapters but no longer has access to a computer or Microsoft. He wants to know if there is someone he can tell what to type down for his ideas (not a ghostwriter, someone he can call and tell them what to write word for word). Is this possible? What are his options?


His only options would be to either take the ghost writing plan. Or, he can handwrite the rest and send it in to us. We can't do much more than that!




The work does not contain any material of a libelous or obscene nature. How obscene is "too obscene?"


As long as the book isn't a pornographic book (About porn), the author can write as they wish. We publish erotic books, but nothing about porn.




Where is our physical Main office located?


Our main office is in PA. We have 30+ offices nationwide. They're all closed due to Covid-19.
