PUBLISHING

Become a Published Author!

We offer a couple of publishing packages for your book, whether you are writing non-fiction, fiction, or even for a particular niche such as business, “how-to,” faith, or self-help.

  • INDIE PUBLISHING — We set you up as the Publisher and you receive 250 copies of your book up-front, while your book is also available on Amazon, etc.

  • PLATFORM TO PAGE — We start with your audio files and notes from your presentation and develop your book.

INDIE PUBLISHING

This program assumes you have finished your book and all it needs is some light editing. But you want to own it all—as author AND publisher. With this program—our most popular package—your book can pay for itself!

In many cases, we can take your project from edited manuscript to fully-published book in less than 30 days. You pay one flat fee (based on factors such as word count, page numbers, trim size, etc.). You receive 250 copies of your new book up front, the sale of which will more than cover the flat fee. In other words, your book pays for itself.

INDIE PROGRAM INCLUDES:

  • 250 print copies of the published book.

  • Title Creation

  • Cover Design (print & e-book)

  • Interior Design & Layout (print & e-book)

  • Editing (one round included standard)

  • ISBN and Bar Code

  • Personalized Publisher Imprint

  • Print & E-Book Publication (AUTHOR RETAINS ALL RIGHTS)

  • Distribution (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-million, etc.)

  • Includes set up of all author and book pages needed to be a presence in the publishing world and on the internet

  • AUTHOR earns 100% OF ALL ROYALTIES

  • Purchase Additional Author Copies of the Book at Discounts of More than 50% as Long as Your Book is in Print

  • Your Book will be Immediately Available at Amazon and Other Outlets, Earning Great Royalties.

You can sell your 250 copies of the book to more than cover the up front fee. These copies are yours to sell, promote, or give away, based on your needs. Send us a note about your project via the contact page on this site and we’ll give you a quote.

PLATFORM TO PAGE

(For Members of the Clergy or Other Public Speakers & Teachers )

You speak. The words flow. The people listen. Then you do it all again a week later. Sometimes you feel good about the message. Sometimes you want to hide out for a few days.

Most preachers accept the fact that not all sermons are "keepers." In fact, some may be quite forgettable. Then there are some wonderful moments. Maybe you experience what the great preacher D. Martin Lloyd-Jones characterized as "unction." You come up with something special, maybe a single message, maybe an extended series. But once delivered, that's that.

However, that doesn't have to be the end of your sermon’s story.

Speaking of D. Martin Lloyd-Jones, who preached for 30 years at historic Westminster Chapel in London, did you know that most of his books, the ones regularly seen on a pastor's shelves, came almost verbatim from sermon transcripts?  That's right, his words went from PULPIT to PAGE.

This is the ultimate publishing program for first time ministry-related authors. It includes everything “from soup to nuts.” All it takes is audio of your spoken message(s). We create transcripts.We then take the “DNA” of your spoken words and, using the developmental tools and expertise of experienced editors and published authors, work closely with you crafting your book. This package includes an element of ghost-writing, but the book still represents your words and thoughts. It is a labor-intensive process, but well worth the price.

Whether your book is 10,000 words or 50,000 words, we bring your ideas forward from your audio files into something ready to be published in print or digitally. The price we quote for your unique project includes all of the costs of transcription and editing.

The price we quote includes the following:

  • 300 Print Copies of the Published book

  • Transcription of Audio Files

  • Shaping the Text Using “ghostwriting” Skills

  • Title Creation

  • Cover Design (print & e-book)

  • Interior Design & Layout (print & e-book)

  • Editing (one round included standard)

  • ISBN and Bar Code

  • Personalized Publisher Imprint

  • Print & E-Book Publication (AUTHOR RETAINS ALL RIGHTS)

  • Distribution (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-million, etc.)

  • Includes set up of all author and book pages needed to be a presence in the publishing world and on the internet

  • AUTHOR earns 100% OF ALL ROYALTIES

  • Purchase Additional Author Copies of the Book at Discounts of More than 50% as Long as Your Book is in Print

  • Your Book will be Immediately Available at Amazon and Other Outlets, Earning Great Royalties

Of course, you could choose to take your completed manuscript anywhere else to be published—even submitting it to a traditional publisher. In other words, using CMP to develop your project from audio to completed manuscript does not obligate you to use us to publish your book. In such a case, we would provide a quote for transcribing and “ghosting” the book. When completed, you would receive all the files, sufficient to take to any other publisher. But please remember that most companies that offer self-publishing services for completed manuscripts will only provide 10-20 author copies as part of their package. We give you 300 copies that can be sold to cover most or all of the costs of your package. Send us a note about your project via the contact page on this site and we’ll give you a quote.

[NOTE: A typical four-part sermon series would translate into a book of approximately 20,000-28,000 words, give or take.]
