A Unique and Complete Approach to Independent Publishing

As one of the pioneers in the self-publishing industry, Trafford Publishing is proud to have helped ignite a revolution to give voice to thousands of aspiring authors. Inspired by a genuine belief in our authors, our goal is to provide the ultimate publishing experience producing a literary work born of a vivid imagination. This author-centered motivation means that we are continually evaluating, adapting and developing our services, fueled by author feedback.

Our publishing experts and production team can help you with whatever your book needs - from editing, cover and text design support, registration, worldwide online distribution. We can also help you build up your marketing plan with bundled services created with your aspirations and needs in mind. With Black and White and Full-Color options, produce your book in various formats: paperback, hardcover, leather-bound, and electronic. We will send you one printed and bound proof and one electronic galley of every book, for your final approval prior to printing. Best of all, enjoy a non-exclusive contract: you are free to sign on with a traditional publisher, or sell your rights for film or television at any time.

We recognize the value of validation for you as a writer, and the best validation that can be received is a positive book review. Manuscripts of authors who purchase our Gold Seal Premium service will be submitted to a highly respected independent book review company. Those that will receive a favorable feedback will be given the “Gold Seal of Literary Excellence.” This prestige carries with it a host of complimentary services.
