Have you dreamed of publishing your own book? Do you have a story in you waiting to make its way into the world? Self-publishing is easier than you would think. CaryPress International has a mission to help writers metamorphose into published authors and get their books in their fans' hands and hearts.

CaryPress offers self-publishing packages, author website set up, and book marketing services. You can actually self-publish your book in two weeks or less! What else makes CaryPress different?
  • One project manager for each client: from start to finish
  • Being personable: no canned responses/emails
  • Reasonable prices
  • Giving authors an option to take over the reigns of their marketing: by coaching them on how to do this on their own. Authors love control over their creative work, so they should be allowed to make a decision to outsource 100% of their book marketing to a company like ours, do it 100% on their own or any other ratio of outsourcing in between.
  • Diverse book marketing options: from bookmarks, author websites to book signing event scheduling
