Editing and Design Services
We help self-publishing authors prepare their books and
upload them for print-on-demand (POD) for sale online as trade paper books and Kindle e-books.
There are many self-publishing, POD services such as
X-libris, Author House, Lulu, CreateSpace and others. The
service we generally use is CreateSpace, an Amazon company.
With most POD services you can publish your book at no
cost to you if you prepare the book yourself, meaning all
of the editing, interior and cover design. Or you can pay
additional fees to have their professional editors and
designers do the work for you.
Mud Flat Press will
edit and lay out your book interior, design the front and
back covers, and help you set up your own account with
a POD service. We will consult with
you once without charge, and together we will decide how much
of the work you want to do yourself and how much we should
do for you. Prices are negotiable but generally comparable
or much cheaper than POD companies charge.
not offer distribution services but many POD companies do.
Mud Flat Press is

I heartily recommend the folks at Mud Flat Press. Alec
and Gabi Clayton combine an invaluable set of
publishing skills from multiple perspectives: author,
editor, graphic designer, computer skills and literary
insights. It has been a great pleasure to have their
gentle guidance through the publication process of my
first book." -- John Knold, PhD
