Authors Press has compiled series of frequently asked questions from authors, both published and aspiring ones as well as readers and anyone interested in books.
Should I consider self-publishing my book?
If you have written or currently writing a story you wish to share and tell to others, there is no reason why you should not consider self-publishing your book.
If you are concerned about the technicalities and steps involved in self-publication, Authors Press is here to provide assistance. Our team is composed of proofreaders, editors, and designers who will proofread and edit your work as well as provide cover layout, among others.
How will I know that my book is good enough for publishing?
Authors Press conducts a manuscript evaluation to help you evaluate the quality of your manuscript. Through the evaluation, we will know the level of editing that your manuscript may require.
Should I follow the level of editing recommended by the manuscript evaluation?
While we advise you to follow the recommended level of editing, you are actually free to choose any other level you please. However, if the level you have chosen does not get things done, we may offer an alternate solution.
Will someone provide updates on the progress of the work being published?
Yes. Our team conducts a private and direct two-way communication with you, the Author. If you wish to make changes or have questions and clarifications, you can always directly get in touch with our team.
Do I have the final say in regards to what my book’s content and/or layout should be?
Absolutely! After all, you spent countless hours in writing it.
Where will you sell my book?

Will you also be marketing my book?
