Amika Press believes in developing new authors.
Everyone has a story, and we are all invigorated by sharing our experiences and worldviews.
Amika Press was founded in 2000 to offer authors professional editing and design services as well as publication management. Additionally, authors receive a more favorable royalty arrangement than is provided by traditional publishers.
We are advocates of print-on-demand, which is faster, more economical, and more environmentally sound than bulk printing. Books are printed by CreateSpace, an Amazon company.
At Amika Press, we offer professional editing and design services as well as management through the print-on-demand process.
Proofreading, copyediting and manuscript critique can be the difference between a draft and a completed manuscript. Authors often struggle to take an objective view of their own work. Professional editing brings out the true voice of your writing, making it strong, clear and consistent. We work with you to carefully craft a final manuscript ready for publication.
Book design is more than simply a clean document. It enhances your story, through typesetting and cover design, to create an appealing product that completely engages readers. You choose from three unique layout styles, personally designed for your book. We typeset the manuscript in the chosen style, and work with you to create or contract cover art.
Amika Press offers you the benefit of a professional imprint plus distribution and royalty management. If you are a Chicago-region author, we can meet with you personally for an initial consultation. We will also provide phone and email communication during the process of preparing your book. Equally important to authors, our unique business model allows for a 50/50 royalty split, which is more favorable than traditional publishers.
