If you’ve finished your self-published book, congratulations!
You've written, edited, rewritten, second-guessed and finally ended that final sentence, completing a fully-formed work of art born from your own words and ideas.
As a self-published author, it’s in your DNA to be a book nerd. But don’t worry — we love book nerds at Steuben Press. That’s why we became book printers, after all.
Steuben Press was founded on our absolute love of literature. And one of our favorite parts of being a book printer is having the pleasure of working with a myriad of talented writers and new voices.
Nothing beats the feeling of holding your self-published book in your hands for the first time.
As a self-published author, being a blogger is second nature.
Being a self-published author means embracing the DIY mindset when it comes to producing and selling your book.
You've finally made the commitment to be a self-published author. Your book's printed, you made an amazing author website, and you can’t wait to share your work with the world.
Don't believe the hype about the internet killing books. Research shows that book readers have stayed true to their favorite hobby.
The myth of “writer’s block” can be a dangerous one for self-published writers. Just using the term as a self-diagnosis for your creative block can make the challenge seem insurmountable.
Being a self-published author means you get to enjoy the creative freedom you always desired. You work on your own deadlines, and decide exactly how your book budget is spent. You’re even getting good at marketing yourself and your creative projects in the process!
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.
