Icarus, the Moon and Sun

Out of the Darkness

In Icarus, the Moon and Sun, four uniquely global characters with one all-knowing deity, manifest magic and discover their path. A rule-abiding girl from East Berlin, a well-off girl from SoHo New York, a happy boy from India discovering his sexuality, and a selfless boy from North Korea who doesn't know there's a word for what he's looking for: transgender.

1106 Design, LLC logo 1106 Design, LLC

500 copies • Completed manuscript.
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.

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.
