Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What types of books do you publish?

Q: What format does my collaboration book article submission need to be in?
A: We require your article to be in Microsoft Word format (.doc or .docx). We do not accept .pages or Google Docs. (To minimize any formatting issues you may experience transferring your document to MS Word from a different writing program, we recommend that you write your manuscript in MS Word.)
Q: Should I edit (or have someone edit) my article before submitting it to you for publishing?
A: We recommend that you run your article through Grammarly.com (for free) and fix any errors it finds prior to article submission. We will also copyedit for light grammar and punctuation prior to publishing. If you feel your article needs developmental assistance, we recommend our writer resources.
Q: What if I have changes I want to make to my article? Can I resubmit it?
A: Unfortunately, no. You may only submit your article one time. We have to enforce this strictly to keep things running smoothly. So, make absolutely certain your article is 100% complete before you submit it for publishing. You will have one final opportunity to check for misspellings and typos. But you can't resubmit after you have submitted your work.
Q: What about footnotes or endnotes?
A: We do not allow footnotes and endnotes.
Q: Do you offer wholesale discounts when I order my books?
A: Yes! Your paperback books will cost you approximately $7.50-$9.00 each when you order at wholesale. You may then sell your paperback copies at any price-point you wish, usually between $16.00 and $18.00. Many of our authors make the majority of their profits this way.
Q: How long does it take for the collaboration book to be printed?
A: If we're ordering author copies from our KDP back office, it can take 2-3 weeks for delivery. If you are buying on Amazon, you can get your book in as few as 2 days at retail price.
Q: How many authors give you feedback on what happened after they publish with you?
A: All of them. Everyone has always been completely satisfied. We've never received any negative reviews.
Q: Where are you located? Can I visit your offices?
A: We are an online business only, which means we do not have a physical office you can visit. However, we are happy to answer your questions via email at connect @ asyouwishpublishing.com.
