All our black and white packages include e-Book and paperback publishing, image insertions (perfect for black and white images of line drawings), and multiple-outlet online distribution. But it doesn't stop there: packages include promotional materials, a book video, and even a publicist. Want a more permanent, library-quality edition of your book? Check out our hardcover options!
