Get Published

Ready for the next step?

Deciding to have a book published is a big deal. Placing your hard work into someone else’s hands is not to be taken lightly. That is why we, at JPV Press, work really hard to be respectful of your feelings and attachment. We believe that building a relationship with you, the author, is crucial, and making sure that your voice is clearly heard throughout the pages is paramount.
In order to smooth the journey from “aspiring author” to “author,” we’ve tried to answer the questions you may have.

Do you accept manuscripts?

Yes, we do. Well, there’s a protocol to follow. The best way to have us take notice is to follow the steps that are listed under “How do I submit my manuscript?” Easy, huh?

Do I need an agent?

No, you do not need an agent. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to have your work published. We work with you one on one.

How do I submit my manuscript?

The best way to get a manuscript to us is to first send us a book proposal. If you notice, there is a link that will take you to our book proposal form. Just fill it out and email it. Or, if you already have a book proposal ready to go, you can just email it to sue@jpvpress.com. We’ll look it over and then, if we like what we see, you’ll submit the whole manuscript to us. We’ll have our team of readers give their input and if they give the nod… it’s time to talk contract!

What services do you offer?

We really do it all, except for writing the book:
• Editing; to make your work the best it can be.
• Graphic design; people DO judge a book by its cover, and our team believes in giving your book the best cover possible.
• Layout; a book should be inviting when you flip through it. A book designed with meticulous attention to detail is more likely to sell.
• Printing; the printer we use is top shelf. We want you to be proud of the book that holds your autograph.
• Marketing; we have distribution, but we are always working to broaden our markets.

Congratulations, you made it all the way to the bottom of the page. We’ve given you a lot of information to process; if you still find it confusing, give us a call or send us an email. We would love to talk to you. 330-763-4097 or sue@jpvpress.com.
