In addition to helping the dreams of aspiring authors come true in the US and Canada, we also offer self-publishing imprints in the UK, Spain, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.

All the services an author would need

Our comprehensive suite services include everything from prepublication services, such as editing and illustrations, to publishing design and formatting, to marketing and publicity, to distribution in all print and digital formats. In fact, we currently have more than 130,000 titles available for all e-book readers.

Hollywood has noticed

Along with helping authors get their books into the hands of readers, we have also helped them get their work into the hands of Hollywood entertainment executives who are looking for new ideas for film and television. Our unique Book-to-Screen services and Book-to-Screen Pitchfest give authors unprecedented access to entertainment executives who want to find new material to adapt for the screen and stage. We have also created a one-of-a-kind database called the Author Solutions Hollywood Database, which can only be accessed by qualified entertainment executives who want to peruse our tagged content to find the next big idea for the big screen or television series.
