Tailored to You

529 Publishing is a high-end, author centered, self-publishing company.

We provide top-notch services like editing, cover design and book printing. Our approach is author centered. Your self-publishing experience will be highly tailored to you.

When you call us, you will speak directly with your editor. There are no intermediaries and you will never be passed from one person to the next.

Why Hire 529?

We are the most author centered self-publishing company in the world. We are passionate about the books we edit and design for. We work until it's right and if at any time you're not happy, we'll fix it.

We go the extra mile. If you're having trouble with another vendor, we'll call on your behalf. If you can't understand a complex contract, we'll help you read through it. If we aren't the right company for you, we'll refer you to someone who is.

We listen. Every author we work with is different. They need different things. We tailor our services to you by working with you one-on-one. If you have a specific vision, we will do everything we can to make it come to life. If you're concerned about something, we will walk you through it and answer all your questions. If you're stuck, we'll sit one-on-one with you and brainstorm. We care and our work ethic reflects it.

You keep 100% of your royalties. The cost of our services is a one-time fee. For every book you sell, you will earn every penny. We never take a cut off the top. Our competitors take up to 60% of your royalties — forever.

You keep all rights to your book. Our policy explicitly states that you are the sole owner of your work. You are free to publish and sell your book however and wherever you want. Amazon and other publishers limit the ownership of YOUR book. It limits your options and we believe that's unethical.

You are welcome to work with other vendors. If you'd like 529 to design your book cover but would like another editor to review your manuscript, that's OK with us. We regularly work with other vendors and have great relationships with many editors, designers and printers. Our competitors require you work only with them, which restricts you and taints your experience.

We're a great match if...

  • You have completed a book, are passionate about your work and know you want to self-publish.
  • You're looking for a high-touch self-publishing experience tailored to you and your book.
  • You want high-end cover design, flawless editing and beautifully printed books.
  • You're looking for someone to pick up the phone, answer your questions and provide you with industry advice.

We're not the best choice for you if...

  • You want the cheapest option. We don't produce cheap, low-end books. We don't slap covers together in five minutes and we don't rush the editing process. It's not who we are. We put 100% effort into everything we do. We believe in publishing masterpieces, not adding to the noise.
  • You think publishing your book is going to make you a millionaire. Books don't sell themselves. While a best-selling book can very well make you a lot of money, it shows a lack of commitment and unreasonable expectations if you believe putting a book on Kindle will sell 20,000 copies overnight. We can help you get there, but it takes time and a whole lot of work.
  • You aren't committed to your reputation as an author. We don't accept manuscripts without punctuation and we won't work with authors who don't understand the basics of writing. We will gladly help you with grammar, sentence structure and content, but if you don't understand the difference between past and present tense, we aren't the company for you.
