Digital Bestseller

Are you writing a book, or have you already written one? Tell us about it, and learn if your book has what it takes to be a May Design Press author. Let us know about yourself and your book.

Are you eager to get your book out into the world? Then the digital bestseller package is the smart choice.

With a digital bestseller campaign you can release your book quickly. And if your ultimate goal is to have a print book as well, then having a digital bestseller will be the first step in attracting and building a larger audience.

Publishing digitally is faster than any other publishing option (unless you decide to self-publish, which means you're on your own).

By Design Press can publish your e-book and bring it to market just six weeks after its completion.

What's more, there are no printing costs, so you can start growing your platform at a fraction of the price of a printed-book campaign.

Below you'll see details of our campaigns for e-book bestsellers.

We will work with you to decide which one will best serve your needs and your goals.
