Our ServicesAnd How We're Different
You're The Publisher!
We never take a cut of your royalties. You own all the rights. All the contracts are in your name, you get all the royalties directly, and you can always see how your sales are going.
We provide a money-back guarantee, no questions asked. Just a simple contract in plain language. We designed Pedernales to be the most author-friendly company in the business.
A Whole New Approach to Self Publishing
We only service exceptional writers with well-written, well-edited manuscripts, and we charge a reasonable flat, fixed fee to produce your paperback, hardcover and all forms of the ebooks.
We Make it Really Simple
Get your paperback, hardcover, and ebooks for one flat fee. We acquire your LCCN and Copyright, design your cover and interior, produce ARCs if needed, order galley proofs for your review, perform expert upload, and release your books and ebooks for distribution.
You Won't Get Lost in the Crowd
Pedernales only accepts a small, select group of clients at a time, so that we can provide the personal touch and intense customer service you deserve–at no extra cost.
You Own the Design, And You Get the Files!
At the end of the project, we give you all the design files for your book and a fresh, clean current MS Word version of your updated manuscript. It’s all included in our low flat fixed fee.
Need It Really Really Really Fast?
Pedernales has the best expedite service in the business: from manuscript submission to proof stage in two weeks or less.
We Can Help You Launch Your Book
We can setup a Mailchimp Book Launch campaign, plus design and launch your website linked to Facebook, Twitter, and anything else you need to integrate your social media and market your book.
