Publish Your Book

Self-Publishing versus
Ithaca Press


You have written a manuscript, and now you are wondering how to get it published.  You could self publish or find a publisher.  That is a big decision. 

Ithaca Press has known many authors who have self published their books only to find errors, omissions and even incorrect grammar.  Yes, it is true that there are many people who self publish and have a wonderful experience.  We know many authors who have been heart broken to have 10,000, even 20,000, copies of their book printed only to realize that there is some part that needs changing after the book is printed.  Often the author has exhausted their funds only to have an inferior product.  By inferior, we mean a book that simply does not meet industry standards to be carried in bookstores or, or other avenues of sale.

Your book can be published the correct way usually for much less than most self-publishing endeavors, and we will not load you down with a large number of copies that may sit in your garage for years to come. 

If you decide to self publish your book, we wish you the best of luck.  But, at Ithaca Press, we can publish your book for a reasonable cost, and you will get the benefit of professional proofreading, copyediting, book design, layout, cover design, copyrighting and licensing.  Your book will be one that meets industry standards and can be sold in bookstores and other avenues of sale. 

There are probably people who would love to read what you have written, so give your book the best chance to be successful.  Ithaca Press will work with you to make your book a book you can sell with pride.

Your manuscript could be the next manuscript that Ithaca Press will send to, or register in Books in Print to be sold in bookstores.

We copyright the book in your name.  You retain rights to your work.  We will provide worldwide marketing for your book.  Your book can be offered through Books in Print,, and other avenues for sales.  We provide many other unique marketing suggestions that will be of great interest to you.
