Collaborative Publishing

We publish stories that make a difference.

It’s hard to get noticed, to stand out.  You have a positive message that deserves a wider audience.  Yet in today’s crowded, over-saturated marketplace it’s hard to get noticed, to stand out.

Publishing may the answer but HOW you publish can make all the difference between your message hiding in obscurity and transforming the lives of people all over the world.

Simply getting your message listed on Amazon is not enough.

Publishing today isn’t what it used to be – and there are loads of unhappy authors out there to prove it. This doesn’t have to be your experience.  HigherLife authors recommend us over and over and many come back to publish multiple books with us.

Let us help you avoid the publishing landmines that detail and disappoint so may authors.  We want to partner with you to help you determine the publishing process that’s right for you.

Here are two publishing options from which to choose…

#1 Collaborative Publishing

For individuals and organizations who have an audience and a message and want to publish a book that connects the two in a compelling and profitable way.

You want a publishing experience that rivals what the finest traditional New York publishing houses offer in terms of quality, personal attention and distribution while being able to retain all rights to your message and ultimate creative control that self-publishers offer.

  • You retain all your publishing rights
  • You pay no publishing fee, your only cost is to purchase at least 2,500 copies of your book from the initial press run…and this cost typically amounts to a 60%-80% discount off retail
  • You benefit from a full publishing team of experts: editors, designers, publishing and marketing strategists, copyeditors, copywriters, who know how to take your message and craft it as well as any New York Times best-selling publishing house would do.
  • 3 levels of editing (most companies only offer one level of line or copyediting – you deserve more than that!)
  • Multiple custom cover designs
  • Personalized publishing strategy – we come alongside you to understand your unique publishing goals and then work with you to craft just the right book, including title, subtitle, specification to meet those goals
  • Personalized marketing support – helping you know where and how to sell books
  • Customized interior designs
  • World-wide distribution
  • Generous 50% Royalties
  • Author discounts up to 95% off retail
  • Filing all your copyrights for you in your name
  • Assigning proper ISBN, BISAC and bar codes
  • E-Book development and uploading
  • Audio book development and uploading
  • Your book can be published in 6 months or less.  (Some books and resources may take longer depending upon how complex they are.)
  • We pay competitive royalties on the trade sales we deliver; typically 50%-65%.

Since every project is unique, complete our publishing application and questionnaire and after our initial FREE CONSULTATION, we will be able to craft a no-obligation proposal and agreement.

Fees typically vary depending upon the amount of work needed, the number of copies ordered and the specifications of the project.

Don’t have a manuscript?  No problem. We can either assign a writing coach to work with you or we can bring in a professional ghostwriter to interview you and from those conversations create your book manuscript
