If you want to print your book yourself rather than have it printed through Amazon, Kelly Andersson can help you select the best printing company or print-on-demand (POD) service for your book. No matter which option you choose, she will ensure that your interior and cover files meet the specific requirements of your printer.

Though the creative part of writing a book can be both laborious and exhilarating, getting that manuscript into an actual printed book for sale can be enormously frustrating for self-published authors. Kelly Andersson can help you with parts of it or all of it, taking your work from the rough manuscript stage to a published book for sale on Amazon and in bookstores.

Publications include full-length non-fiction works, novels, cookbooks, how-to eguides, and short ebooks. Request an estimate and find out what Kelly Andersson can do for you.
