Indie Publisher’s Tools for Success

Professionally format and design the interior of your book without having to learn anything new.

The Emper Experience

Writing is a beautiful experience that shouldn’t be ruined by hunting down distributor guidelines, learning to navigate a complicated program, trying to figure out how to set bleeds and layouts, licensing different software programs, and paying hand-over-foot any time an error is detected or a change needs to be made. At this point, we’re no longer the boss, are we?
