We'll level with you: book publishing isn't an easy journey to navigate. Even if you've made the trip before. But it's always smoother with a professional guide trekking by your side. Self-publishing is a slightly misleading term. It doesn't mean you walk the path alone—it means you're in control of the journey. And this is where yours begins.

Since 2011 we've helped more than 50,000 independent authors publish their books. Take a look at why your book will be in good hands with BookBaby.

This is my second go-round with BookBaby and my experience with their service is just as good as the first time. My first point of contact at the company, Christina, was there for me once again with my second novel. Her professionalism, kindness, and genial manner must make an immediate favorable impression on anyone she comes into contact with. She is a pro, as are the other staff members I had the pleasure to work with.

In-house premium quality book printing

BookBaby was born from a DIY spirit. We like to do things ourselves, that's why 98% of our orders are made in the USA with 100% toner-based printing. Working with BookBaby means you have an in-house print shop of book publishing specialists, from prepress pros to qualified printing craftsmen.

What does that mean for your book? See for yourself with a final-quality Press Proof. This book sets the quality standard for every copy that follows. Every book you order is made using the same equipment for the entire production run and will exactly match your Press Proof.

I am so happy with the job BookBaby did with my book. The colors are true to my watercolor illustrations, the quality of the book is wonderful. I chose the hardcover book and I am glad I did. Also very nice that they had the option of including the author's pic on back. My grandchildren, friends, and family all loved it. I am happy with the sales.

I have just published my second book with BookBaby. I love them. Everyone is very, very helpful and if anything gets goofed up, they fix it immediately. I intend to use them for more books that I write.
