Here's Some Fast Facts on Saloff Enterprises and What We Do:
(Please contact us for additional information...)

Print on Demand (POD) is a type of book printing that many have heard about, but with all the myths and Internet vanity presses vying for your dollars, how do you know if you're making the right choice? The right choice can put money in the bank while the wrong one will leave you with a gaping hole in your pocket.

Jamie Saloff, of Saloff Enterprises, has been helping professionals such as yourself for nearly two decades. She can show you how to avoid the vanity presses and how to keep more profit for yourself—all while you gain global distribution and without stockpiling books in your garage. In fact, you never have to ship a book yourself, ever—unless you want to. Your book will automatically appear for sale on Amazon.com and other online bookselling sites, as well as being available for order from the major book store chains.

You have never done this before, so, of course, you have a lot of questions. We expect you to ask them and will do our best to answer them— honestly, putting the information in your hands you need to succeed. Read through the testimonials. You'll see that our work doesn't end with putting your book into the proper format for POD. We will guide you through all the necessary steps to become a small, independent publisher and published author.

After publication, Saloff Enterprises offers continued support. Clients continue to check back with questions, even years later.

JamieSince Jamie is also an author who has written seven books, she knows the intricacies of the writing process. She has been a long time member, former board member, and Meritoious Service winner, of Pennwriters, a writer's organization based in Pennsylvania. She has been traditionally published as well as a supporter of self publishing. As a former web designer, Jamie understands how to navigate the Internet, and as a Dale Carnegie graduate, she knows how to treat people right. If you're looking for quality and integrity, you've come to the right place.

Although Jamie's talents have led her in designing all types of books from novels to childrens picture books, photo essays to poetry, and many more, her specialties include: spirituality, inspirational, health and wellness, nutrition, popular psychology, self-help, business, memoir, and other non-fiction books.

Jamie Saloff has been designing books for over two decades and is a self-publishing specialist who creates custom, unique-to-you, InDesign layouts, formatted to the specifications of Lightning Source, IngramSpark, CreateSpace (or other printer of your choice). She creates covers for her clients, if needed, or can coordinate with your graphic designer. As part of her design process, she also:

• Offers advice for creating a high quality, marketable book

• Guides authors successfully through the self-publishing maze

• Shows them how to keep as much profit as possible

• Is very quality and customer service oriented

• Is skilled in creating print books and ebooks

• Is experienced and professional

Jamie specializes in designing books in the following categories: spirituality, metaphysics, inspirational, health and wellness, alternative and holistic health, business, marketing, popular psychology, self-help, memoir, and other non-fiction books. While she does occasionally do fiction and childrens books, the aforementioned categories represent the types of books she is most passionate and knowledgable about.

There are some things Jamie doesn't do:

She does not edit PDFs or fix PDFs from previous publishing companies, except in rare cases.

She does not "fix" Word documents for use with Lightning Source. (She creates custom layouts from Word using professional desktop publishing software.)

**If you're shopping around to get a "ball park" price, note that Jamie isn't likely going to be the least expensive. Check Guru.com or Upwork.com for inexpensive alternatives. Experience, talent, customer service, and quality, come at a price. If these values are important to you, here are some services Jamie offers:


Your First Call is Free:

Take advantage of Jamie's no-obligation self-publishing call to ask questions and learn more. You will not be pressured to buy anything and Jamie will answer, to the best of her years of experience, any publishing question you want to throw at her—with the exception of how to use any particular software or its settings. Whether you're interested in traditional or self-publishing, Jamie can help you better understand which route is best for you and your book.


Book Design and Personalized Guidance:
Jamie creates unique designs in keeping with your author's vision for the book, its audience, available sizes, and today's technology, all the while keeping your budget in mind. She shows clients how to create a quality, highly-marketable product, while keeping more profit in their pocket.

Note: There are other, non-designer fees associated with the self-publishing process (ISBNs, printing costs, copyright filings, copyediting, etc.). Schedule a free, no-obligation consultation call with Jamie to discuss all the details.


Cover Design:
Since many talented authors have often employed a graphic designer for websites, marketing, and other projects, cover design is offered as an add-on for those who need it. Cover design rates are hourly and these prices are estimates. Costs can vary widely depending on graphics used and the amount of final editing required.


Ebooks and Apple iBooks:
E-books are typcially generated from the print book and can be added to a print book package at a discounted rate. An ebook-only design will be considered, if that's all you need. Apple iBooks display on-screen books in a beautiful presentation unlike typical ebooks. However, they require a specialized, unique file type.

Childrens Picture Books:
These books are an entirely different breed being mostly images and a few, well-chosen and crafted words. If you'd like a quote for a children's book, please take advantage of the free, no-obligation call mentioned above, or contact Jamie by email to learn more.

Project Management:
If you're a busy entrepreneur or professional practitioner who's looking for someone with experience in all aspects self-publishing to handle all the details and to coordinate multiple service providers, design elements, and logistics, this is the option for you. Use this as a stand-alone feature or in conjunction with Jamie's design and consulting packages. Pricing is hourly.

Jamie also works with authors who want to "Do it Yourself." Inexpensive call packages are available for those who need additional advice in traveling the road of self-publishing.
