For anyone self publishing, or even just thinking about it, you may find the list of resources we’ve gathered helpful. There are plenty of other companies and options out there, but on the list you’ll find the ones that I can vouch for personally.
You can also download a pdf version of the book we put together on Self Publishing for Profit from Canada. Just click on the cover to download the pdf. The book contains basic information about each stage of the publishing process, and also contains “Your Turn” exercises in each section that help walk you through the process yourself.
One caution: the world of POD and e-publishing changes quickly. Details in those two sections may have changed since we put this together, as this version of the book is from 2010 and not all details have been updated recently. However, I have written a blog post updating the information, so make sure you read that too!
I use these services regularly, so if you have questions or aren’t sure if something is current or not you can just ask me. Use the contact form on this site to get in touch.

Creating Your Content
Editing Your Content
*I work with several really great editors, depending on what genre, timeline and budget the project has. If you’re looking for an editor for your book, get in touch. I can help match you up with someone who will be a good fit for your project.
File Preparation & Cover Design
*I (and my CCS team) do cover design and file prep for clients, but I’m also happy to refer you on to other talented folks if I think someone else’s skills would be a better fit for your project.
