 Your book’s waiting for you

Your path to publishing starts here.

Writing a book is not an easy feat. Pat yourself on the back: you’ve done it! You’ve closed the writing door and entered the publishing world. You want to have the right tools to make informed decisions and create a book you’re truly proud of. We want to help you get there.

The experienced team at Mill City Press put together Plan to Publish to help you get a good handle on expectations, timelines, and budget. It'll also prepare you for the bigger editing, design, distribution, and marketing decisions you'll need to make. And we've included some truths about self-publishing we think you deserve to know.
