AUTHOR'S BRIDGE

Assisting novice writers with publishing their work.

WHO AND WHAT IS AUTHOR'S BRIDGE?

MICRO PUBLISHER

Author’s Bridge is a micro-publisher and a division of CyberDiamond LLC. We help novice writers and authors to publish their books and place on Amazon.com© and other distribution channels for sale. We are a complete service solution:

• developing your story, characters, and scenes;
• formatting the manuscript into book format;
• editing, grammar, punctuation, and more;
• choosing the type and size of the book;
• obtaining copyrights, ISBN, barcodes, and QR codes;
• cover design;
• set pricing and royalties level;
• converting to eReader/Kindle; and
• step by step guides from the first draft to publication

WHY USE AUTHOR'S BRIDGE?

Author's Bridge will personally work as a guide. We will work with the author as a self-publisher or publisher of the finished book. We take pride in providing a fun and educational process as you become a published author at a very affordable price. Our pricing is approximately 30% less than Amazon’s Createspace© professional publishing services. Additionally, Createspace© professional services do not provide the author with a one-on-one conversation about the project. Createspace© is online only; whereas, Author’s Bridge provides personal interaction, contact by phone, email, or even in person if desired. Your project becomes our personal interest in your success. We have references we can supply of authors we have helpedpublish or assisted in self-publishing. Many have referred other writers to us to publish their books. We do not advertise. Even after your book is published, we are here to answer questions. We can assist in the creation of a website for your book or author’s website, and encourage you to continue the writing experience with another book.

HOW TO GET STARTED WITH
AUTHOR'S BRIDGE?

As a micro-publisher and assisting on a self-publishing project, we only take on a handful of projects at a given time, this gives you the most personalized service possible. Each and every book is different, we service all genre; fiction, non-fiction and textbooks. Each books timeframe to publication depends on several conditions, for example, the length of book, quality of grammar and writing, development of the story, the number of edits and proofs needed, the design of the cover, pre-readers reviews, and more. It is best to call or email us with a synopsis of your book, a time to publication, an approximate number of pages in your manuscript and we will be able to give you an idea when it can fit into our limited schedule.

WHAT AUTHOR'S BRIDGE
IS NOT?

Author Bridge is not a marketer or publicists of your book. We do not promote or sell your book. However, we may feature your book on our website and link it to your website for sale. Nevertheless, CyberDiamond, LLC, the parent company of Author’s Bridge, can create a website for you as an author or a website focusing on the book.
