Is whitefox a publishing house or a self-publishing company?
We’re somewhere in–between
You’ll have noticed that there has been a huge increase recently in the number of companies that can help you publish your book, offering a range of services and commercial terms. We define ourselves as a publishing services company – there are very few companies like us.
Still confused? We work with publishers, brands and writers, and can provide any publishing services required. Whether that is the entire publishing package – from copyedit through to typesetting, proofread and publication – or a one-off cover design, we’re here. And because we don’t finance publication ourselves, we don’t take a royalty – so any money you make is yours alone.
We’ve been doing this for some time now – just look at our endorsements page!
How long will it take to finish my book?
It’s up to you! When we first discuss your project, we will ask you about your timeline and when you want your project to be completed. After that we will do our best to match you with the right publishing professionals to meet your expectations – and deadlines.
