Parafine Press offers boutique self-publishing services. Founded by the staff behind Belt Publishing, Parafine Press creates beautifully designed, professionally edited books, and offers shipping and handling services as well.
For all our clients we design the book cover, lay out the interior, proofread the text, and list your title so it can be ordered anywhere (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, independent bookstores, etc). We also offer optional editing, storage, and shipping and handling services.
When a traditional publisher contracts an author, the publisher pays for all production expenses, and authors receive a modest royalty of 5-10% of sales. With Parafine Press, authors pay production costs, but retain as much as 80% of sales. For most clients, if they sell 100-200 books at full price they will recoup their initial investment.
