- Mary Beth Gaertner of Way to Go

More than a Publisher

AuthorHouse is the largest self-publisher committed to creating an amazing publishing experience. Here is what's included in the Rapid package:


  • Paperback Publishing:  Your book will be available in the most popular format, made of quality, perfect binding, and acid-free library stock paper.
  • Digital Formatting and Distribution:  Your book will be distributed online as an e-Book and available through significant resellers like Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Production and Post-Production Features

  • Rapid Release Service: Transform your manuscript into a professionally-published book in as fast as two weeks!
  • Worldwide Online Distribution: Your book will be available for sale online through external retailers such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other resellers that may pick up your book from the Ingram and Baker & Taylor distribution networks.
  • 20 Image Insertions: You may provide imagery for your book's interior pages, which will be printed either in grayscale or full colour (for Full-Colour Books).
  • Standard Cover Design: A cover designer is assigned to your manuscript and, with some consultation and direction, designs a few cover options based on your vision and lets you pick which one best fits your book.
  • Standard Page Design: You will have a say in creating visually appealing page designs bringing your story to life, and building your book's layout that fits your needs.
  • Electronic Galley: Also referred to as “galley proof,” this is your cover and manuscript in a book layout with chapters and pagination. To ensure the final book design is 100% to your liking, galleys are e-mailed to you for review and approval before the book is ready for purchase.
  • One round of Interior Revisions: You may want to change your manuscript after proofreading your galley. Each block of revisions allows you to submit up to 50 corrections. Publisher errors such as hyphenation, formatting issues, or misplaced graphics, which occurred during production, must also be noted on the proof form but will not count against the first 50 corrections.
  • One Round of Cover Revisions: Do you want to make any tweaks to your cover? You have the option to make changes at no additional cost.
  • Amazon "Look Inside", Google, and Barnes & Noble "Read Instantly" Previews: Allow readers to take a peek inside your book creating interest online before purchasing it. Preview available on Amazon, Google, Barnes & Noble, etc.


  • ISBN AssignmentA 13-digit identifier is unique to your book and an industry requirement for distribution and retail sales. It allows distributors, retailers, printers, and readers to find and order your book easily.
  • UK Legal Deposit: The legal deposit is a system that helps ensure that the nation’s published output is preserved and available for future generations of readers.
