Palmetto Publishing FAQs

1. Why should I work with Palmetto vs. other self-publishers?

+

Because at Palmetto, we care about the authors we work with, and we want to see them succeed. Our competitors can’t match our personal customer service, plus a 100% satisfaction guarantee. While our competitors are taking a cut of your profits, we never take any royalties. We also offer payment plans for our services and bundles, so you don’t have to pay everything at once. We tailor the services around each author’s project as opposed to trying to fit them into a blanket package that might not be a good fit for the author. We simply love the publishing industry. We’re here to help real authors who have had difficulty with traditional publishing houses or who have always wanted to self-publish.

2. How long does self-publishing take?
