We are Dream Builders!
"You can have everything in life you want,
if you will just help other people get what they want."
- Zig Ziglar
We agree with Zig! Although he's no longer with us, Zig Ziglar spent his lifetime helping others make their dreams come true and become successful. He set the stage and raised the bar for personal success like no one else.
At Great Spirit Publishing, we help make dreams come true for writers who have a story to tell and a dream to become published. While we have a general focus for the types of books we publish, we also serve as a catalyst or "middle man" for authors who may be considering "self-publishing" but don't know how to go about it or who don't want to deal with the electronic hassle.
Using the amazing technology now available, we are able to help make your publishing dreams come true! The publication process is reduced from 18-24 months (traditional big name publishing) to 4-8 weeks, more or less, depending on services provided, number of proofs reviewed, etc.
Is it considered "self-publishing" if you publish with us? Are we considered a "vanity publisher"? No. At Great Spirit Publishing, we act as a service agent to accomplish the goal of publication for our clients, and we have professional standards we follow. Generally, a vanity publisher will publish whatever manuscript is paid for with no editing or proofreading provided prior to publication; we don't publish every book queried, but every book we publish will be given our highest level of care because we understand the attachment an author has for his or her work and we work to satisfy our authors.
If you have the time, talent, and energy, you can do this same thing yourself. You can research all the options, the numerous small- and self-publishers who charge hundreds or thousands of dollars. You can deal with the online systems, formatting the files, making adjustments, correcting errors, and everything else needed to get your book ready to publish.
But if you don't have the time, technical talent, or desire to do all this yourself, Great Spirit Publishing can help! We have the know-how to put the book together and, using electronic, print-on-demand technology, the cost and requirement for a large cash outlay or bulky inventory is eliminated.
We help our authors with a variety of services, from typesetting, proofreading and editing, book design, cover design, to complete set-up for the publication process, including a free proof copy of the completed book. Our authors retain copyright ownership of their work, and they exercise complete creative control, approving each step of the process so it meets their expectations. Authors review the final proof edition of their work to make sure it looks like they want it to look, and have options later to correct errors if discovered after publication, an option not available with a big name publisher or when hundreds or thousands of books have to be pre-paid and printed.
As an independent and assistive publisher of quality inspirational materials, our goal is to provide reading material that will inspire and encourage you in your Journey through this Life, giving you Hope along the way as you grow in your relationship with your Creator/Source. Our publications offer encouragement, insight, illumination, and entertainment featuring topics known to many or perhaps new to you. Let us entertain and inspire you! Browse our Book Store to see the kinds of books we've published so far (averaging 1-3 books per year and growing!*) and see what sparks an interest for you!
