Manuscript review/analysis

Authors can submit their manuscripts for third-party review and analysis by Augusta Free Press. Your friends and family are bound to tell you that your manuscript is good and should be published. We can be your unbiased set of eyes.



We make sure your manuscript is as clean as possible. Spellcheck can only go so far.


Manuscript layout/cover design

We take your manuscript from Word to the page, including integrating pictures as you desire into the layout. We can also put together cover design for the front cover and back cover based on what you want them to look like.


Project management

We have existing relationships with printers, so there’s no need for you to worry about the details. We work with printers to schedule printing and delivery and also obtain the ISBN number for your book.


Marketing and Internet marketing

We can help you get your book in front of readers by designing a media-relations campaign and making contacts with newspapers, magazines and TV stations to get you free media attention and building a website for your book and integrating social media networks and e-mail newsletters into an organized Internet marketing campaign.
