Val Waldeck, Self-Publishing Specialist
 It is absolutely essential for books to be well-written and edited before presenting them for publishing. Authors tend to fall in love with their own words and badly-written books invite negative reviews, which will cost you sales.

Important: Contact me first to discuss your project.

Manuscripts: If accepted: pay the required fee and send me your book in digital format (i.e. Word or Text).
I work with business, secular, and Christian publications that instruct, inform and enhance the lifestyle of people. I do not publish religious books that fail to adhere to conservative Biblical standards, nor books containing sexual, swearing, blasphemous, alternative lifestyle, New Age, or occult content.  I reserve the right to be selective about the kind of material I help to publish with the Amazon Publishing Service.

Highly Recommended: Discover how to publish your Kindle and Print Books yourself and save lots of money. This is a skill worth learning at the Global Publishing Academy.

Thank you for your extremely helpful training programme on Global Publishing Academy. Yesterday my granddaughter Rachel, with minimal help from me, managed to upload the kindle version of the new Growing up in White SA. She followed the course step by step and found the information clear and instructive. The book is presently sitting in review, so I hope to see it on display within a day or so. Neville Herrington.
