Dear Author,

Congratulations on finishing your book!

The choices available to authors in today's publishing world can be overwhelming. It's often difficult to tell the difference between traditional publishers, hybrid publishers, subsidy publishers, and self-publishing companies.

From manuscript to market, 1106 Design provides book design, production, and publishing services for independent authors who seek all the quality of traditional publishing without forfeiting their rights and royalties in return.

1106 Design provides traditional publisher quality with one-stop, end-to-end services from copyediting to worldwide distribution. We operate just like a publisher with one difference: YOU maintain complete control of your book, your schedule, and most importantly, your payments.

Traditional publishers hire experts to produce the book. When a book is sold, the publisher is paid first, keeps some of the money to recoup its investment, and pays the author a small royalty. The publisher controls the entire transaction.

In our model, distribution accounts are set up in your name. When a book is sold, the retailer takes a cut, the printing cost is deducted, and the balance is deposited directly into your bank account, never ours first. The difference can amount to several more dollars per book in net revenue to you.

Our most popular package for non-fiction books, 50,000 words and under, including copyediting, cover design, interior layout, proofreading, eBook formatting, and distribution set up in your name is just $7,353. Fiction titles are slightly lower, $6,488.

Need a different solution? Let's talk! We'll customize our services to your exact needs. Complete information can be found at https://1106design.com.

At 1106 Design, we love helping authors release great books! If all of the above interests you, please respond with your email address and/or telephone and we'll reach out to answer all your questions. We hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,
Michele DeFilippo
