How are we different from a vanity press or traditional publisher? We're a hybrid. We offer the best of both. We're also a writer's professional development & marketing consulting firm. So, you don't have to publish with us to work with us.
The quality of your work reflects on Guest Room, so we have a personal stake in your success. Our goal is high-quality books & excellent stand-alone services every author needs to effectively produce & promote their work. Do you want to develop & deepen your writing? Work with our mentors one-on-one. Do you want to become respected in your genre? Build a network? Win awards? Good. That's what we want, too.
Guest Room is not a vanity press. We accept only quality work we are passionate about bringing into the marketplace. Publishing everyone who pays us isn't our vision.
Guest Room uses a team of only the most talented artists, editors & designers who share your drive to create a high-quality book rivaling that of traditional publishers.
Traditional publishers take a portion of your royalties for the life of your book while often providing only minimal or no marketing & promotional support. With Guest Room, you receive marketing support for the lifespan of your book. With us, you earn a higher % of royalties & retain your rights. You own your work. We work for you, not the other way around. We think that's how publishing should be.
The result is a high-end quality book, new skills to help you promote that book & develop your brand & career over time. We work with you from revision to release with global distribution to over 40,000 retailers & libraries. We continue to offer support post-release. Your success is our success. The outcome?
