Mainstream publishing has always been an exclusive affair. But these days the publishing opportunities for authors and writers willing to explore the independent route have never been more plentiful. A new enterprise, The Manuscript Publisher offers professional and affordable services that assist in the goal of getting your books into the public domain. And while the venture may be new, the personnel behind it have a wealth of experience in publishing, marketing, editorial services and design.
According to Oscar Duggan, the group's founder and General Manager: "We have worked with dozens of authors, writers, independent publishers from Ireland and further afield, helping to produce quality self-published titles which have been well received by the book-buying public. We work with clients on a one-to-one basis and offer a level of personal support that is unrivalled and unsurpassed. We are literally never more than a phone call away and when you do call it is a real person, not a machine, who you are talking to."
The Manuscript Publisher offers the full range of assisted publishing services. These include manuscript preparation and book-setting to output a print-ready PDF or ebook. They provide a print brokering service that helps you to match print runs to anticipated demand. The net result is that you get more books for your money without having to print more books than you need. Advice is available on all your publishing options and digital printing techniques. They also offer assistance, services and support to those interested in the non-printed route to getting published. And whatever publishing route you choose The Manuscript Publisher can help you to market and sell your book, availing of both traditional and online channels
The aim of The Manuscript Publisher is to be author-centred in its approach to publishing. "We would like to see a lot more investigation and debate as to how present and future trends in the publishing, including but not limited to advances in technology, can be harnessed to support authors and writers who choose the independent publishing route," says Oscar Duggan. "In industry terms 'the publisher' is the person who puts up the investment capital and incurs the financial risk if the venture doesn't succeed. Where the author is also the publisher, it stands to reason that he or she should reap the dividends of success. Independent publishing is not something you need feel daunted by if you have the benefit of the best possible, as well as practical, assistance and advice."
According to The Manuscript Publisher's website we don't offer 'publishing package deals' because we don't believe that these models are fair to authors; nor do they reflect the reality of publishing today. The services which are offered are designed to assist rather than unduly complicate an already complex undertaking. You pick and choose those services which you require. Because book production doesn't lend itself to a 'one size fits all' approach the packages which The Manuscript Publisher offer are those which are tailored to your real and present needs, ambitions, budget, etc.
