Parafine Press is a full-service boutique publishing company. We offer authors a suite of comprehensive services to bring books on any topic from the spark of an idea to a bound-and-printed final product. Our experienced team includes editors with a wide range of expertise and backgrounds in developmental and copy editing, proofreaders with eagle eyes for detail, book designers with experience creating clean and sophisticated interior and cover designs, production managers with expertise in handling metadata and publishing databases, and shipping and fulfillment managers.
Prospective clients should contact Parafine Press with a brief outline of their project. We will send you an estimate, as well a contract that stipulates the services we would provide and the expectations and deadlines authors must meet.
Clients may choose the full suite of publishing services, the basic package, or the basic package plus a la carte services. Payments will be scheduled in stages as services are completed. Authors (80%) and Parafine (20%) split the proceeds from sales.
