There are a multitude of companies and services to choose from that do amazing job with book projects. Milk & Honey Books is a valuable resource to those who have a book on their heart but might now know the next step to take, need a more cost effective way to release their book, don't have a platform large enough for a traditional publisher, or just need someone to give an encouraging and personal touch to their project. Milk & Honey Books may not be a good fit for everyone, but we hope it is a good fit for you.
Once you have emailed us and/or scheduled a free consultation, you will receive a proposal that will detail the timeline. After that is agreed upon, you will sign an official agreement and then receive a PayPal invoice for the deposit and or full amount, which can be paid online.
Because of our missional focus, work is done between ministry and roles in Iceland, therefore there may be limited availability when booking or longer turn around time. The average turn around time for most services after receiving a fully edited manuscript (excluding publishing and creative book creation) is one month. Once a proposal from us is accepted by you, Milk & Honey Books will do its best to adhere to the deadlines agreed upon. However, any delays on the author's end will affect the final timeline.
Our experience with Fiction books is limited. For examples of current cover designs check out our books.
Print on Demand technology makes it easier and more affordable for books to be published, especially if you can't afford a large print run. We use Amazon (paperback only), Ingram Spark (paperback, Hardback/Hardcover), and Vervante (mostly for Spiral Bound/Wire-O options). Keep in mind that printing books is a separate cost and service that we do not cover.
We want to keep it real with ourselves and you, our potential clients. Since Milk and Honey Books is just starting out with limited experience, we understand that although we do produce professional and high-quality products, we may not be able to do complicated formatting and design. If you are looking for affordable, simple, creative and appealing designs that express your vision, this is the right place for you.
We currently use Microsoft Word, Affinity Publisher, Scrivener and Canva, for editing, formatting, design and layout. Our design is simple but professional, which keeps your costs lower. We will be incorporating other types of software soon.
Because of our mission and beliefs, we do not work with books containing excessive profanity, sexually explicit scenes, occultish themes, extreme political agendas, or promoting lifestyles that don't adhere to our Vision/Mission to release Christ-Centered resources.
