Polished Publishing Group (PPG) is a new supportive self-publishing house, designed specifically for Canadian authors, that combines the quality of traditional (trade) publishing with the flexibility and control of vanity publishing. PPG’s primary mandate is to make the dream of publishing a book more accessible to mainstream Canadians while producing professional-quality results that emulate the books created by trade publishers.
PPG operates in a paperless, virtual office environment. The company's publishing processes are completely electronic which boosts productivity and makes information sharing much easier from any location anywhere in the country with Internet access.
Because PPG utilizes the latest technological advances to communicate and share information with its authors, editors, designers, and printers, etc. (such as Skype™, email, and online forms), the company can effectively operate from the comfort and convenience of home offices and avoid the high costs associated with leasing expensive office space. This eco-friendly business practice allows PPG to keep its prices down while still providing proper customer service to authors. It also allows the company to work with contracted vendors from all around the country, wherever authors are located.
PPG produces both eBooks and paperback books for Canadian authors. Because PPG employs modern print-on-demand (POD) printing processes, authors can print paperback books as needed thereby avoiding unnecessary printing/warehousing costs. These are two more ways PPG is helping the environment while helping clients realize the dream of publishing a book.
PPG’s Publisher and Founder, a Canadian author known as Kim S., has firsthand experience working with a traditional literary book publisher (a.k.a. trade book publisher), a book printer, and a modern supportive self-publishing house. Each position has allowed her to view this industry from a different vantage point and, consequently, given her a well-rounded understanding of their respective pros and cons. This puts her in a unique position to provide others with valuable insight into the world of book publishing and help aspiring Canadian authors to realize their dreams.
