Low Cost Publishing Options with Dog Ear Publishing

Dog Ear is focused on the professional author looking to produce a product to be used for business or marketing purposes. Now there is a low cost publishing solution for entry level authors.

Feedback from a number of authors looking for a more economical way to get a book to market led us to create two new low cost publishing options. Both of our new packages still offer Dog Ear Publishing’s lowest-in-the-industry printing prices and highest-in-the-industry profit levels. We built two low cost publishing options with the entry-level author in mind.

Both of these packages deliver Dog Ear’s design and production expertise, broad market distribution, and high-quality print services. These packages differ from our higher level packages in a number of ways. These are no-frills publishing packages designed to bring a book to market quickly, with a simple design, and minimal hands-on management by the Dog Ear team. They are best for authors comfortable navigating our online systems, with a clean manuscript and a clear-cut cover design idea.

Ray Robinson

When Ray first entered the publishing industry, authors relied on “vanity presses” to produce their work – many of whom would charge $15,000 or more and leave the author’s garage filled with hundreds of books. Ray, along with coworker Alan Harris, joined forces with Miles Nelson to create Dog Ear Publishing to provide the author community a self-publisher with a heart. The group’s application of new technologies and publishing on demand reduced the cost of publishing a book to a fraction of what it had been for previous generations; authors now have the ability to publish a book in as little as six weeks and print as few as a single copy.
