Taking in New Authors

Pay it
Forward

200 value - Virtual OK - Posted Jun 30, 2017

4 Paws Games and Publishing is taking in new authors at no charge. We do need to look at the manuscript first (3 chapters is usually enough) to determine if we will take it or not. If we do, there is a contract with you keeping all rights to your book, control over stages of the book setup. Formatting and publishing is free. You need to have it edited and if it needs illustrations, that is your responsibility. Those are the only catches. If you want to leave, a month's notice is all that is required. If the book cover can be done with images, I can do this myself.
We aren't for everyone. We help those who can't afford thousands of dollars to get their books out there and we are a self-publishing company (means you need to do some of the work selling your books yourself) and we do try to help sell books by bringing them to events, etc. Want to know more? Just ask. No pressure sales. Just contact for info and don't worry about paying the 1s because it made me list an amount.

Training & Qualifications


I've been publishing and selling my own books for over 5 years now. I've been publishing other people's works for 2 years now. All of our authors are coming back for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, etc. books to be published. Visit our website and see some of our authors.

Availability & Preferences


I go by order of the work coming in. Work times vary, but I'm usually done within a week or less.

Trading Preference: Pay it forward – pass on the good deed!

Vickianne did a great job at creating the perfect E-Book cover I needed. She made it and themed it accordingly to look and fit the storyline/theming o...f my story. If I need and E-Book cover done again I will be sure to get it done by her!show more

About Vickianne Caswell

I am the owner-operator of 4 Paws Games and Publishing. I have been publishing my own books for 5 years now, and first opened my business 2 years ago. 4 Paws Games and Publishing is a family-run c...ompany. We publish books, e-books, and visual novel games. The owner has been publishing since 2012 but did not officially launch a business until 2015. The company offers two forms of book/e-book publishing. These are sent out to different printing and distribution companies. Each has their own unique benefits. The owner wants to help people who can't afford the higher costs of publishing. To do this, we've minimized our costs by doing much of the work for less, finding lower cost printing companies, working online only rather than through a building, hiring freelancers and no staff. We specialize in publishing and offer a variety of help from beginning to end (as in, when you end your contract). You do need to sign a contract, but you can give us a month's notice to pull out of it at any time. You retain the rights and have the majority of say from beginning to end. Royalties are at least equal to any other company out there, if not more. We keep a 30% markup on the books we directly sell and 10% of online sales. Our books are being listed in many stores throughout Canada, and can be ordered in-store. 4 Paws Games and Publishing is located outside of Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Canada. We have clients from the Philippines, South Africa, U.S.A and Canada, and we would love the opportunity to help you!show more
