What's the Trafford Difference? Comprehensive Service.

With a full range of affordable fee-based professional quality publishing services—including editorial, marketing, publicity and distribution, Trafford is the clear choice for self-publishing your next book.

Editorial, Design, and Marketing Support

Trafford offers all of the professional services you would expect from any traditional publishing house: editorial, design, and marketing. What sets us apart from other self-publishing companies is that our range of services are comprehensive---an author can publish, promote and sell his or her book with Trafford services.

Editorial Services

Typos and grammatical errors are not the only mistakes that can keep your manuscript from being a quality publication. Our editorial lineup includes more than a dozen services to lift the quality of your book to professional, marketable standards.

Design Services

The Trafford team will work with you—incorporating your photos, graphics, sketches and ideas—to create a professional book cover that beautifully represents your book's contents.

Marketing Services

If you want your book to sell, you’ll want to do more than just hope for the best. Our selection of promotional products and services allows authors to build a dynamic platform to effectively promote and sell their books. Create your marketing plan and materials with our simple step-by-step tools.

Book Sales and Distribution Support

Once your book is published, we will make your book available for order in the Trafford bookstore, from Barnes & Noble.com, Amazon.com, and online retail outlets worldwide. Our bookselling offerings also include special author-only volume book discounts and a Booksellers Return program that alleviates risk and allows bookstores to return unsold copies of your book.

You Own and Control the Copyright

Since we offer nonexclusive contracts, we do not own your copyright—you do! We don't tie up your rights so, once you give us a short notice, you can self-publish on your own or acquire a deal with another publisher.
