Self-Funded Publishing and Book Distribution Packages

Writing a book is a dream for many people. But for entrepreneurs, speakers, coaches, public figures and many other talented people with knowledge, experiences and skills to share, this is fast becoming a requirement.

The nature of publishing is such that, one needs to release a new title every quarter or every year if you want the big commercial publishing companies to even consider your work. For entrepreneurs, speakers and the many other talented people we cater for, this may not be feasible.

We understand that, for you, publishing a book provides a tool to expand your brand, to showcase your knowledge or to impart a skill. And this will happen maybe once or twice in your lifetime. That’s the reason why commercial publishing may not be a viable option. The BIG question is, ‘What options do you have?

Self Funded Publishing!

Essentially this is what self-publishing is, making an investment in yourself to have your knowledge, skills and talents authored, documented, print and bound, and ready for distribution to your clients, fans, and readers.

Our self-publishing packages offer more than just a collation of ideas, editing, and printing. As an investment, we’ll give you the best return by ensuring that your book actually sells. We offer a comprehensive and professional self-publishing solution with access to a global network of book distributors including Amazon, Barns & Noble, and 36 other retail outlets.

Made my publishing process easy...

When I was running for Mrs South Africa in 2018, I had the opportunity to pen my thoughts of quotes I found inspirational through the journey. RedOystor made the process seamless and possibly with ease.
