….

  2. Paperback Book “Publishing-only” on Amazon.com. (Print-ready PDFs supplied by you).

I work with business, secular and Christian publications that instruct, inform and enhance the lifestyle of people. I reserve the right to be selective about the kind of material I help to publish with the Amazon Publishing Service. Click HERE for more information.

Payment is required with the order.


ManyAmazon Publishing Service writers are technologically-challenged or do not have the time to learn how to publish books on Amazon. I can help you with my “done-for-you” service.

Amazon publishing is a superb revenue source, giving you access to Amazon’s online bookshops in every country they have a footprint, including the USA, UK, Europe, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and India. You receive between 35/70 % royalties and Amazon takes care of all the sales and delivery processes. There are no further publishing costs involved.

Properly formatted Kindle books may be read on any digital device… including computers, Kindle Readers, smartphones, tablets, iPads, etc., giving you a very wide readership and access to literally millions of people. I do not use automatic software to produce the kindle book (which tends to give some “interesting” outcomes!), but hand-code each book so it looks professional on any device the reader may use.

Why shouldn’t you become the next Amazon Best  Seller?

I highly recommend authors use the CreateSpace facility.
