Author Publishing and Production Services

Bard and Book Publishing is designed with both the publisher and the authors in mind.  The era of authors selling their copyright off to publishers without restrictions is fading fast as more and more avenues of distribution open up to diligent researchers.  Thus, Bard and Book's authors lease their content to Bard and Book, with certain provisions, described here.  However if even those modest provisions are too much, this page describes services that we offer with no strings attached whatsoever.   Do you need book covers designed?  Do you need a manuscript prepared to a printer's specifications?  Do you need Ebooks versions created?  Do you need multiple formats generated?  Bard and Book can do that for you.

No strings attached.  We work with you to create the files and then you are free to do with them as you please.  The distribution is all in your court.   Bard and Book can be your full service manuscript preparation service while you publish under your own label to your heart's content!
