We take care of everything from start to finish: we set the budget, select the right editor for the job and then manage the full production and printing process ensuring that all deliverables are met within deadline and to budget. We deliver your books to the national distribution warehouse and upload your ebook and print-on-demand files for international distribution. We also offer full author support and coaching for the duration of the project.
With Quickfox Pro Publishing your book will meet the trade quality standards required for media reviews, as well as bookstore and library distribution locally and internationally. Your book will reflect well on you within your industry, and among clients and peers.
Are you a good Quickfox Pro Publishing candidate?
The Quickfox Pro Publishing solution requires a budget that typically covers the professional services required, so this option would not suit authors who are looking for a cheap publishing solution. Having said this, we are well aware of the economic realities of publishing and selling books, so our focus is on keeping costs as low as realistically possible without compromising on quality.
Good candidates are those who have relatively easy or direct access to their potential readers; authors for whom a quality product is important; authors and companies who are using the book to promote their business or brand; professional writers or journalists who want to publish independently yet require traditional publishing quality.

What kinds of books do we publish?
Our projects have been varied, and we’ve helped publish everything from poetry, fiction and autobiographies, to full colour coffee table books, business books, magazines and quarterly journals. We have even produced academic and educational books! Thanks to our extensive network of affiliates and suppliers, we are able to tackle most projects – whether for personal or bookstore distribution.
You like what you see, so how do you get started?
We strongly support responsible publishing. We believe in educating our clients about what they’re in for when they choose to go the independent route – before they commit financially. We therefore recommend starting with a publishing consultation in which we chat about your specific project and needs. We’ll look at your publishing vision, target market and budget. We’ll also give you an introduction to independent publishing – the challenges and benefits – so that you can see whether an independent option is going to work for you.
Our consultations are not designed to sell you our services but rather to point you in the right direction and pair you up with a publishing solution or partner that will best suit your needs. Should that happen to be us, your consultation fee is refunded by way of a credit towards your publishing costs.
We also highly recommend a manuscript evaluation. Traditional publishers won’t consider a publishing deal without first assessing the manuscript and its viability in the market. As a self-publishing author or company, you’re not required to sell the same volume of books that a mainstream publisher would, but you would still need a good, solid manuscript to sell your book at all. An evaluation can provide the objective feedback you need to achieve this.
