Self-Publish with IngramSpark
and 1106 Design for Quality, Integrity, Transparent Pricing and Personal Customer Service.
1106 Design provides traditional publisher quality for independent authors with one-stop, end-to-end services from manuscript to market. We operate just like a publisher with one critical difference: YOU maintain complete control of your book, your schedule, and most importantly, your payments.
1106 Design knows that IngramSpark authors want real books—not just another “me too” book like the thousands already out there. That’s why we’re proud to offer this publishing package exclusively for IngramSpark authors:
3 Custom Cover Designs.
We research your book’s specific genre, then create 3 unique versions—no templates here!—for you to choose from. Then our design team works with you to go through however many rounds of designs it takes until you’re 100% satisfied.
2 Custom Layout Designs.
Every book has its own voice, and the print layout needs to reflect that. That’s why template layouts don’t work—they can’t capture the author ’s voice like a custom layout does. Again, we work with you through however many design iterations it takes until you’re 100% satisfied.
Complete Book Layout.
We don’t just provide a custom design—we design every single page of your book to make sure it is flawless. From tables to images to side quotes (and whatever else your book has), our artists make sure it looks like art.
A Full Edit by a Professional Editor.
Aren’t sure if your writing skills are quite what they should be? Rest easy, knowing that a professional editor will go over every word of your book to make sure it’s clean, crisp, and clear.
As the final step in the quality control process, we have a separate professional proofreader pore over your completed book to catch the typos that almost got away.
Kindle and ePub Formatting.
Did you know that different e-readers require special formatting? That’s why some eBooks look so unprofessional on your screen: the author didn’t know how to do it. Lucky for you, we at 1106 do it for you.
FREE Title Setup at IngramSpark.
Because we’re an IngramSpark preferred provider, once you set up your IngramSpark account, we’ll set up the complicated title details for you and upload your book’s files. Then we’ll walk you through the proof review and distribution setup process. No muss, no fuss.
But most importantly…
Your Very Own Publishing Professional!
That’s right—at 1106, we assign you your very own publishing professional who will take your calls, answer your questions, and work with you at every step. You’ll work with people who fell in love with books a long time ago, not a telemarketer working from a script. You don’t have to worry about getting lost or something slipping through the cracks—we keep track of all the details for you.
We’ll hold your hand every step of the way!
What does this IngramSpark-exclusive package cost?
Our editorial and design team will turn your words into a work of art. We’ll customize a package to suit your exact needs at affordable prices that range from $4,000 to $10,000, depending on the services ordered, the word count, and the content. Then, we’ll subtract a 10% discount only for authors who find us first at IngramSpark!
New York Times Bestselling Author on 1106Design:
I did three out of four books with ‘traditional’ publishers: Harper Collins, Penguin and Wiley. But when I found 1106 Design, my publishing life changed. I’ve never worked with a more knowledgeable, responsive team. I kept total control of my work, my time and my royalties. We designed and published my best book!
I tell every author I know; I will never do a book with anyone else.
— Bill Schley, NY Times Bestselling Author
