CSP - Traditional Publishing

Go traditional: the all-inclusive publishing journey

We edit your book, provide a book cover, and take care of the tedious but oh-so-rewarding process of book page composition before we publish your book to various platforms.

Because we at City Stone Publishing put authors at the heart of all we do, we will do this all in close consultation with our authors. Their voice as the creative owner of the story will be heard and weighs heavily with all the decisions we have to make.

Also part of traditional publishing: regular updates about books, and quarterly royalty reports and payments.

Is it because we love words that we believe in communication? Even if we have nothing to say (as if…), we will still be in touch on a regular basis. Just to check in with our authors. We are approachable and you can reach out to us whenever it’s needed. We believe in our authors. For them, we go the full nine yards.
