Publishing Services

Services for Authors and Independent Publishers

Publishing independently makes good sense. We've developed the tools we need to create, publish, distribute, promote and sell our own books, and we offer those same services to other independents. We'll connect you directly to our established professionals and offer competitive prices. Contact Lee at lee@octanepress.com to book services.
