How It Works

What to Expect from Genius Book Services.

Book Production

Your Book Should Be as Beautiful as Your Message.

You have put a lot of work into your expertise, your message, your story. Whether that investment can be measured in months or years, we understand the dedication that went into your creation. Our editors, proofreaders, formatters, layout artists, and cover artists have put years into learning their discipline as well.

Once your manuscript is in hand, it will be edited thoroughly (and we will keep you in the loop every step of the way), proofread carefully, formatted and laid out for paperback and ebook use, and a cover will be created that matches your messaging and will allow for exceptional marketing of the book.

Finally, your book will be printed for inventory as well as uploaded to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes, and IngramSpark for broad distribution and availability.

Ghostwriting

Use your time efficiently.

If you’re an entrepreneur, public speaker, or subject matter expert, your time may be best used practicing your expertise and not writing. The mechanics of putting words on a page doesn’t necessarily require your hand on the pen or your fingers on the keyboard for your message to shine through.

Our expert writers will interview you, get to know your voice and message, consult with you throughout the writing process, and get your approval on the final product. It’s always easier to edit than it is to write, and your investment of time will be, on average, less than 10 hours. Compare that to hundreds or thousands of hours mastering the art of writing to the level our ghostwriters have.

A Note: Genius Book Services is only able to help write non-fiction works (and some fictionalized subjects like allegories). If you are looking for someone to write the next Lord of the Rings on your behalf, we know there are services who can do that. We prefer to stay with our core competencies and write non-fiction.

You Are The Publisher

Your message, your rights, your profits.

There are many options for publishing a book, including traditional publishing, hybrid publishing, and self-publishing. The one rule of thumb to keep in mind is that whoever pays the bills is the publisher.

A traditional publisher will pay you. For a limited amount of time, you grant them the right to use your manuscript to produce a high quality book, make the book for sale, and market the book to one degree or another. For this effort, they take a portion of the royalties (sometimes a large portion). And in many cases, that’s a good deal for you and your book.

A hybrid publisher is more like a business partner than a traditional publisher. You invest some of your money to get the process started, and the press still produces the book, makes it available, and sometimes does some marketing. For this, the press will often take a smaller portion of the royalties, and you have more control over your book. But please be aware that there are also publishers called Vanity Presses, which will take your rights and your money, profit off of selling you your own book as inventory, and charge you a hefty sum to get the rights back. If you go this route, please do your due diligence and research them before signing anything that requires you to pay to publish.

Self-publishing is where you retain all the rights and all the profits. The truth is, self-publishers are actually one-author small presses, businesses in their own right. As a small press, you are responsbile for all the steps that a traditional or hybrid press would perform, including production and marketing. This is a great option for those authors with a niche message, including entrepreneurs, public speakers, and subject matter experts. It’s also a great choice for many authors who simply want to retain control over their book(s).

Genius Book Services offers publishers of all sizes, from one-author small presses to large traditional presses, the support they need to get their books produced professionally, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
