In these uncertain economic times, every penny counts. This is why we have decided to meet the needs of authors who wish to invest in their books, and who have chosen to publish with a Print-on-Demand company such as CanisTrigger Publishing.
We believe that we have successfully managed to combine our requirements to produce quality books with the possibility of a more cost-effective investment for our clients. Only until October 28, 2011, authors of unpublished fiction, poetry and short stories can participate in our competition, which offers the winner the chance to get a discount of 30% off the regular price of a paperback publishing package. Not only that. Each category winner will receive 5 complimentary copies of their printed books, as well as an eBook conversion absolutely FREE. In addition, they will also have a special page on our website where their books will be showcased and advertised.
Runners up in each category will save 20% off the original price, and will also receive 3 complimentary copies of their books.
