This Friday I recommend a post by an author on her experience with assisted publishing. As I wrote about in Do You Need A Publisher, Part 1, these types of publishing services assist with the tasks authors who self-publish do on their own, such as uploading books to different platforms, finding a cover designer, and editing. Some charge a flat up front fee and others get paid through a percentage of royalties.
Author Maggie Cammiss thought this sounded like a reasonable deal when offered by a division of the traditional publisher who'd published the first novel in her series. Some challenges arose, though, with the paperback edition that led her to wonder.
