New Ways to Fund Your Book

As more and more authors choose the control and profit margin of self-publishing, one of the first questions they, or perhaps other more financially-oriented friends, will ask is, “How much does it cost and how the heck am I going to pay for it?”

The Great 48

Steuben Press had the opportunity to work with Josh Sanders on a really fun book project recently. Josh and his sister Lindsay set out to break the High Pointing world record and they accomplished just that on July 12th 2015. With a limited budget and a small support crew, Josh and Lindsay set out on an adventure of a lifetime. They documented their amazing trip in a photobook, which we at Steuben Press had the pleasure of printing for them.

Montez Self-Publishes as a Nonagenarian

C.S. Lewis, a man probably much wiser than the rest of us, once said “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” Our client and good friend, Montez Roller Smith, has proved Mr. Lewis to be correct time and again over the past four years. Still publishing books well into her nineties, new books by Montez have become a regularity at Steuben Press.

We Help to Make Memories!

We just completed a relatively small order for one of our clients. Generally, small orders move through our production process quickly and frankly, without much fanfare. This particular project, however, caught my attention. The job was basically a photo journal that was compiled by our client during a recent trip with a close friend to the Appalachian Mountains. Many of her photos were exceptionally beautiful, most were your typical “tourist” photos. What struck me the most was the fact that, despite the variations in their aesthetic appeal, all of those photos were especially meaningful to her, and to the friend for whom we were printing the 72 page hard cover book.

Flight cover

After a disappointing proof of my labor-intensive and much loved manuscript from another printer, I decided to try Steuben Press. Based on recommendations from many of my publishing team who are all members of the Colorado Independent Publishers Association (CIPA), I submitted my book to Adam and his staff.

Their proof was perfect! The illustrations were crisp, the print clear, and the construction high quality. But the cover! Absolutely beautiful and softly glossed, Steuben's production added depth to the colors and popped the fine design by my cover artist. My book shimmers on the shelf!

Now I sell only Steuben's copies by hand and feel confident that my readers are receiving the best product reflecting my years of effort and passion for my subject."
