You’ve written a book. Now what? Meaningful Publishing will guide you through the publishing process by turning your manuscript into an attractive and professional looking book—one we hope you’ll be proud of. From custom interior layout and cover design to printing and global distribution, we offer services to successfully publish your book into a potential bestseller. Publish your book with Meaningful Publications and take advantage of :


You’ll retain complete rights to your work, including US Copyright. You’ll be in control the entire time throughout the production process. Final choices and approvals are yours. Also, your book will remain in print and be available worldwide as long as you want, unlike one a traditional publisher never gave a true chance to flourish before pulling.

Greater Profits

At Meaningful Productions, you will receive as payment for writing and delivering the book a percentage of the coverprice from the book's sales. Our standard percentage is 6%. While traditional publishers pay a small royalty on net income, we pay a standard percentage of the retail amount of your book, which is based upon the cover price. We want to avoid unexpected, undisclosed “expenses” that are subtracted prior to your royalty percentage being calculated. Instead, you’ll know how much profit to expect for every book sold. We believe compensation in your pocket should be based off of retail price and never off of vague net income calculations. If the coverprice is $20 and you sell 10,000 copies, you should earn approximately $12,000.

Interior Layout

We’ll give your manuscript individual attention from start to publication . We don't use generic templates. All elements, including font, font size, leading, margins, titles, headers, footers, endnotes, and gutters will be expertly and individually addressed.

Cover Design

We’ll custom design a cover for you with your input and and offer possible images, blurbs, excerpts, and endorsements that you might want to include. We think people DO judge a book by its cover, so we'll provide you our best!

Comparison to Print On Demand Companies

If you want your book published without regard to profits and without consideration of professional support, use one of those other Print on Demand (POD) companies that will publish anything you send them, while taking a large percentage of the profits. Also, POD companies do have professional support; but, you'll incur more costs. If you want a professional publisher with access to the international market, then Meaningful Publication is what you need.


We use Ingram for our world-wide distribution. They are the world's largest and most trusted distributor of physical and digital content. They provide books to over 38,000 retailers, libraries, schools and distribution partners in almost 200 countries. Through them, we provide maximum exposure to bookstores with a standard 55% discount. As such, almost every bookstore, including and Barnes & Noble, will be able to purchase and sell your book from Meaningful Publications.

Award Competition and Book Reviews

At Meaningful Publications, we believe every book we choose to publish has the potential of being an award-winning book. As such, we'll submit your book competition in the Independent Publisher Book Awards, International Book Awards, and ForeWord Book of the Year Award. If you want to submit your book for other book awards, please let us know and we'll discuss the details and additional costs.

In addition to awards, we'll submit your book for potential book review consideration to the following: ForeWord Review, Library Journal, Booklist Review, Bloomsbury Review, Midwest Book Review, and Choice. Unlike the practices of vanity publishers such as Author House, iUniverse, Tate Publishing, Vantage Press, and Xlibris, we believe that a purchased review has absolutely no credibility; it actually diminishes the reputation of both the book and the author, rather than bolstering it.

Additional Support

Each book we publish will receive the following additional support:

  • Multiple book formats: hardcover, paperback, and electronic books (e.g. ePub, Kindle, Nook).
  • Pursue audiobook contract on behalf of the author.
  • Book preview on Google Books.
  • Unique ISBN (International Standard Book Number) for each book format.

  • Professional copyeditting of your entire manuscript for all typos, spelling errors, punctuation misuse, style inconsistencies, and grammatical/structural issues for books up to 50,000 words. $0.01 per word in excess of this.
