Self-publishing is becoming the way of the industry, and it's a movement that we at EPOCH firmly believe in. The option is an invaluable one. In fact, self-publishing had its part in EPOCH's conception. Your book is your brand, and your brand is a business. The market is riddled with imperfection—and that's where we come in. We're here to help new authors produce their dreams in a beautiful, above-standard way by offering great services. We'll use our publishing experience to get your project there with style!
Get started by filling out our project form. We'll be in touch soon after.
Your idea has gotten you to this point, but now it's time to take your work to the next level. There are a lot of pieces to the puzzle when it comes to publishing, especially if it's your first work. You might be wondering, 'How possible it is to get my project to publisher-quality on my own?' The answer is: very possible. Being proactive in this process is something you can be proud of in hindsight. It is no simple feat to pry your story from the realm of private manuscripts and into the light. Bringing your work to the vast bookseller market is the first step to your big success. And we're here to help you with just that.
We can’t wait to work with you. This isn’t an automated service, by any means. We’re going to build a sultry love-triangle with you and your project. That way we get a ground-level feel for your work and can make our sessions that much more productive. If we know what makes you tick, we’ll know what makes your project tick, too.
We’ll work in sessions. Don’t worry about trying to get it all done at once. Most rush-jobs turn out badly, and that’s not how we want to go about your masterpiece. We’ll keep these sessions centered on your project as we go forward toward completion. And don't hesitate to reach out. Your input helps us to help you.
We can handle your peripherals, too! Once you're done with your project we can take care of the promotional material you need to take with you on your campaign. Because you've gotta' campaign ( ya' just gotta' ). From bookmarks to posters, to postcards, to sell sheets, you name it and we've got you covered. Selling your book is the ultimate goal, right? Our promotional products will be perfectly tailored to leave a lasting mark that's unique to your project and your project alone. So, let us handle that while you go and tote a victory cigar.
Having trouble writing your book? Need professional assistance creating a full movement? Sometimes it’s a challenge just to figure out where to start, but fret not. This is what we do. We can help you organize your thoughts and get them on paper so that you can start writing your masterpiece.

You have the ideal artwork for your title, but need it to fit the dimensions of your desired book size. You also need it to be coherent. That's what we're here for!

You know what they say about first impressions, right? It almost discredits what they say about judging a book by its cover. Premium: exterior layout is included for an additional $75. You'll be ready to go once we're done!
