Self-Publishing, Book Covers and Interior Formatting
Become a Self-Published Author with All the Support You Need
While there are many hybrid publishers out there and freelancers who can help with the technical aspects of publishing your book, they may not offer the one-on-one support you’re looking for. If you need help creating your metadata, navigating your Amazon or Ingram dashboards, researching comp titles, researching keywords, developing pricing strategies, interior formatting and cover design, we can help.
The best part, unlike working with a publisher, you remain in full control. You will always have access to your dashboards. We will even provide training videos so you can refer back to the self-publishing support and consulting provided. And royalties are sent directly to you, not to us.
Plan on Self-Publishing Your Book? We Can Assist You Through the Process
Self-Publishing may seem daunting in the beginning, but with our guidance and support through it will get you there. You will work one-on-one with our self-publishing expert, or you can take a hands-off approach and let us handle it all. Our custom plans are adjustable to suit your preference.
What Interior Formatting Services Are Available from Black Château?
Black Château offers book cover and interior formatting services as part of the self-publishing support.

How Can Black Château Help with My Book Cover Design?

Your advertising plan is then developed based on that data, as well as by determining the best advertising methods and platforms for your book. We create an ideation using a mix of social media, PPC, Google, Amazon, email, remarketing, and third-party platforms as advertisers.
