3 Easy Steps to Having Your Book Published by Advantage
Publishing a high quality book that engages your reader requires considerable expertise. The first step of Launch Your Book® is The Book Righter™, where our acclaimed Editorial Director will read and review your manuscript. We deliver an actionable plan with suggestions for editorial refinement to create a book that enhances your credibility as a professional with your target reader.
Once you submit your manuscript for publishing, Advantage provides developmental, line and copyediting services. Our seasoned team has a lifetime of experience in traditional book editing to provide you with the best possible end product. We also provide title consultation and engaging, inviting cover copy so your book can put its best page forward. As an Advantage author, you can look forward to regular, personal collaboration with your editorial team, as the book’s message is fine- tuned.
Creative & Design
Advantage has a team of seasoned designers ready to go to work for you. Our designers will create an original cover and interior to suit your book, based on your input and ideas. Special design and printing requests can always be accommodated. Advantage’s creative team will also create custom illustrations, charts, and graphics for the interior of your book, if appropriate for the subject matter. Authors have the added benefit of ongoing access to the design team throughout the creative and collaborative process.
Printing & Distribution
Like any traditional publisher, we will handle all printing, distribution, and sales to retail outlets on your behalf. Advantage provides distribution services through to more than 25,000 bookstores including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Target.com, Walmart.com, and airport bookstores.

Launch Your Book Success Stories
Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our clients have to say:
Every staff person I worked with—sales, editing, cover design, publicity—was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and wonderfully creative. They worked WITH me and FOR me in crafting a book that I am very proud of. They kept me informed and in the loop on every step of the process—from title selection to final printing.
Anytime I meet someone new and they find out that I have a published book, it changes the conversation. From a personal point of view, and a business point of view, having a book has been extremely positive.
To me, the book is for giving some insight to grow and be better. Whether I’m speaking to hundreds of dentists or dealing with my patients in my practice, that’s the benefit of my book.
A book fits into everything. It fits into your internal systems and your external systems. It fits into your offline or direct mail systems. It fits into your online systems. There’s virtually no place where it doesn’t have an effect. And it helps referrals. It helps you get publicity. There’s virtually no area where it doesn’t help you.
I’ve had the book in local press and national press in the UK. I’ve also had it mentioned on BBC TV. It’s been very positive.
