Mill City Press

Mill City Press is one of the better self-publishing services companies. Their website reflects the company business practices - clean and direct without a lot of fluff and hard sell. Generally, we have been favorably impressed with the quality of the books we have seen from Mill City.

 A couple of caveats if you work with Mill City Press.
  • Some of their marketing services are priced pretty high for the work involved. For example, an author should set-up and work on their own Facebook page and Goodreads author profile or use a Social Media specialist.
  • A new author should be careful before committing to printing a large quantity of books. If a book is selling well, then printing larger quantities of books for traditional distribution is better than using POD. Their Expanded Distribution should be used cautiously by a new author
  • The Manuscript Evaluation seems to be priced a little high, but in general, it is a service that we value.
