Indie Publishing Group makes Self Publishing Simple!

Indie Publishing Group is one of the prominent self publishing companies in Canada and your one-on-one publishing solution. We understand that your book is your life. Your book is an investment, many long hours of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears have gone into its creation. We want you to be involved throughout the formatting and layout of your eBook or Paperback. With several years of experience in every aspect of publishing, we understand that there are a lot of questions when it comes to publishing, formatting, layout, and eventually, categories and keywords.

Once you write your book, the next question is “How Can I Publish My Book?” That’s where we can step in and help your dream become a reality!

Indie Publishing Group makes Self Publishing Simple! At Indie Publishing Group we follow the same process as many traditional publishing houses, except for a few small differences.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, we aren’t a book publishing company. What we can do for you though is to help you get your book or manuscript formatted professionally ready for uploading to markets such as Amazon KDP, Ingram Sparks, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iBooks, etc.

We prefer all manuscripts to be submitted in a Microsoft Word document. However, we all accept a wide range of other document types. PDFs, RTFs, ODTs or InDesign files. However, some of these file types may cost an additional fee due to the added work needed to convert them.

Once we receive the finalized version of your book or manuscript, and you have completed the online ordering process, you will receive the first draft of your formatting within approximately 14 days.

We are happy to help with all of these. You must fill out how many of these elements your book contains during the ordering and checkout process or when you are requesting a quote.

Yes, you can! While our illustrators create all their own work, a picture is worth a thousand words in most cases and an example picture can make the initial planning and concept stage of your project much faster and easier.

As a first time author, I had no idea what was involved in publishing a book. I looked around for awhile until I found Chrissy at Indie Publishing group! She was enthusiastic and put me at ease, right from the start. Throughout the process, she was quick to respond to questions, patient, encouraging and very professional. The editor was also very kind and helpful, and the illustrator was fantastic- very skilled and adapted to any small tweaks just beautifully. I am so happy with the end result and will definitely call Chrissy for future projects. Thanks so much!!

As a first-time author, I had no idea what I was doing and Chrissy Hobbs of Indie Publishing Group rescued me! Her support went above and beyond anything that could have been expected. She was professional, patient, and helpful in making what was a potential disaster into a great experience. I highly recommend her company’s work and have referred them to several other authors for a variety of services. I am delighted with the finished product that Indie Publishing Group produced.

I had my book “professionally” formatted and was left disappointed with the results. I think I sent it back about a dozen times to catch glaring errors. Some errors were not caught right away. Chrissy took my book and reformatted both ebook and paperback files and I couldn’t be happier! She did an amazing job and it looks fantastic! If you want someone professional and need your book completed in a timely manner, THIS is the service to use! I will use Chrissy for all upcoming projects and send my clients to her in the future. Thanks, Chrissy! Julie Garber

Working with you has been a joy and an education. You were able to help every step of the way with the right answers and creative solutions. I am thrilled with my first picture book and look forward to working with you on the next one. Any time someone talks about the awful state of mind where that author doesn’t know the next step of the process, I highly recommend they connect with you. Thank you again for helping me find the right direction when I was lost and didn’t know what, where or how to take the next step.

It was such a relief to find someone who could take my ideas and transform them into a beautiful piece of work. I didn’t have to think about the creation, the formatting, or all the technical stuff. It was a breeze to work with you and I’m ecstatic over the finished product. THANK YOU so much!

As a first time ‘indie author’, I thought I had watched enough videos, attended enough webinars and bought enough software to self-publish. Finally, realized that if I wanted to get my several books published, I had to hire a professional formatter. I was so fortunate to find Chrissy. Indie authors have so much to do in addition to the actual writing and there is such a steep learning curve to get it all done correctly look professional.
