About the author

I was born and raised in Rhode Island where I began my journey as a writer. I am now a third year student at the University of New Hampshire majoring in English as well as minoring in Education. I have a passion for writing and continuously explore different avenues to further my experience.
I completed an advanced fiction writing workshop in my sophomore year of college. I enjoyed the environment of a workshop and working together with fellow writers. Reading and writing are my main outlets and I would love to share my work to the world.

Sector 831

T​he Sectors were created as the ideal form of quarantine. Each Sector occupied by one family, prepared to live the rest of their lives in isolation. The government hoped to give the earth enough time to heal for the next generation to return to normalcy. Now, the next generation is here, but they were promised a lie.

Synopsis

Adira Vos has lived her entire life in quarantine. Her parent’s generation were the first to test out the idea of Sector’s – small, bubble-like isolation units that were built to house one family. The Sector System is supposed to give the earth time to heal from the damage of civilization. Adira’s generation was promised a world healed from pollution, but in her 20 years of life she has yet to see this new world with her own eyes. It is not until she meets a group of people who grew up outside of the Sector’s that her perception of the world is shattered completely.

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.

Need a different solution? Let's talk! We'll customize our services to your exact needs. 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.

Ingram is a rather large company with several different divisions and supplies books to bookstores and libraries in over 200 countries around the world. Ingram also has a print on demand digital printing company, Lightning Source. IngramSpark is the platform that combines those two services together. At IngramSpark, we work with authors and independent publishers to print their books for orders they need (no minimum order) and we have a way to list the books as available for sale to all of Ingram’s 39,000+ customers- distributors, bookstores, retail outlets, libraries, etc., so you never miss a sale. You would provide us with the print-ready digital files (one for the cover and one for the interior) and we print the books as they are sold through our distribution partner’s websites. We pay you for those sales approximately 90 days later. The compensation you earn is based on the retail price you set, minus the wholesale discount you offer our distribution partners, minus the print cost.
