If you’ve written a book on your own, congratulations — that’s a huge accomplishment! We can help you get it in front of the right audience with our self-publishing services.
StoryTerrace writers are recruited from leading newspapers, magazines and publishing houses around the world. They include experts in many fields and are often graduates of prestigious journalism and creative writing programs. No matter how technical the topic, we have a writer who’s perfect for the job.
"The book has helped my business
grow and has helped me gain credibility
as a thought leader in this industry."
We start with a strategy session to understand your business and your goals for your book, and we'll recommend a professional writer who suits your project perfectly. They'll conduct in-depth interviews - often face-to-face - to understand your angle and capture your unique voice.
Your writer and our experienced in-house editorial team will present a detailed book plan for your approval. While they write and edit the book with your feedback, our graphic designers will help you customize the cover art and add images, charts and other important graphics throughout the book.
You'll work with our publishing expert to learn the ins and outs of publishing your book with Amazon and other online sellers that target your intended audience. You're in control of all publishing decisions and earn full royalties from every sale.
We work with you to create the most effective marketing strategy to reach your specific audience. From traditional advertising and press releases to social media marketing, podcasts and blogging, you'll learn everything you need to know to get your book noticed.

On Amazon, you set the price you want to charge customers and Amazon calculates the rate you will be paid (the royalties) after printing costs, distribution costs, download costs for e-books, and Amazon’s fees.
Please note that the final price depends on the printing costs and you may have to set a higher price to cover printing and distribution costs.
Amazon KDP offers print-on-demand, which means that the book is only printed as and when a customer orders it. Their offering is “cheap and cheerful”, so the print quality isn’t amazing, but it is for a low cost and therefore means you can increase your royalties or offer books at a lower price. However, please note that the quality will not be as good as the books printed by Story Terrace. There is also very little we can do about printing quality issues with Amazon (such as alignment issues or inconsistent colours on the cover).
Customers can order your book as soon as it’s live in Amazon’s system and you’ve had the approval email. However, you may wish to order a “proof copy”, which Amazon will send you, and check you’re happy with it before you tell people to start ordering. If there are any issues with the proof copy formatting, please let us know and we will look into this for you. As such, it’s better to leave 1-2 weeks after your book has been approved by Amazon before you start informing people that it’s available. Any changes will have to go through Amazon’s approval process again, and will be subject to a 24-72 turnaround by them.
