In a world full of systems, outsourced services, and automated responses, we aim to make your self-publishing journey more about your needs and less about conveyor-belt publishing.
We work hard to deliver as much value as possible to you. Whether we’re helping you with a part of the publishing process or providing educational content on our blog, we always strive to be useful.
We love what we do, and the people we’re lucky enough to work with. Our work is what gets us up in the morning.
A lot of people ask us why we bothered to start Standout Books. It’s a good question. After all, there are plenty of companies out there for self-publishing authors. But the problem was that no one seemed to really (really) put the author first. Sure, there was a lot about sales figures, big-ticket authors, and even some fancy advertising, but nothing about helping normal people navigate the murky waters of self-publishing.
Self-publishing a book is thrilling, and satisfying, and rewarding, and maybe even life-changing. But sometimes all the things that need to be considered and the decisions that need to be made can be overwhelming.
That’s why we started Standout Books.
Standout Books started as a simple two-man blog in 2013. With $700 in our pocket and a deep desire to help authors reach their goals in a meaningful and enriching way, we started writing.
And we haven’t stopped since.
Today, Standout Books brings you original, relevant content every week, and we provide exceptional products and services.
The majority of our clients are repeat or word-of-mouth, and there’s a reason for that. Our mission is simple: We’ll do whatever it takes to help you write and publish a book you can be proud of. You’ll also learn more about your craft, and you’ll understand all the facets of self-publishing so you can confidently do it on your own (if you choose to).
Whether you’re ready to publish your book, or if you’re fed up with conveyor-belt publishing, get in touch here.
