Welcome to Firewords.


WHERE THE STORIES RUN FREE

Editorial

Developmental and line editing, for a serious narrative power-up. Copyediting and proofreading  to put a little shine on your story. All by dedicated experts, who’ll take your book to the next level.

Design And Layout

Sleek covers that tell a story about your story. Immaculate book interiors that look great in print or any e-reader. After all, your story deserves no less before it meets the world.

Marketing

Coaching, detailed plans and the tools you need to showcase your book to the world. Marketing plans as unique as your story, so it can reach readers awaiting their next favourite book. 

Distribution

Complimentary title setup across major distribution and retail channels (including Amazon) with any editorial or marketing service. You keep the copyright, you keep the royalties: you earned it. 

We Love Stories Too.

For Writers, By Writers.

We’ve worn both the author and editor hats: we understand your needs and concerns as a writer. We’ve walked a mile—or ten—in your shoes, and we understand the pitfalls and opportunities in self-publishing.  To put it simply, we’re your fans. Firewords is helmed by a passion-driven team that puts authors first. Everything you see here is a reflection of our mission to help authors let their stories run free.

Freedom. Flexibility.

Every author’s journey is different. One-size-fits-all packages simply don’t work for everyone. Often, these packages mean that you end up spending more than you need to—or want to. Instead of static packages, we have the powerful, flexible Build Your Own Book feature. This gives you the freedom to select only the services you need, while delivering the savings from bundled packages.

Personal Consultants.

Every author needs support and information throughout their self-publishing journey. We believe that you shouldn’t have to pay a king’s ransom to get dedicated consultant support. That’s why we provide consultant support for all authors: whether you simply need your manuscript proofread or a more complex set of services. For more complex service solutions, we include weekly check-ins with your consultant.

HOW IT WORKS

Find What You Need

Select the services you need using our Build Your Own Book feature. Not sure what you need? Get a free editorial report from us here. We’ll include some service recommendations with your complimentary editorial report.

For more complex service arrays, your consultant will check in with you once a week to update you on the progress of your manuscript, from editing to cover design and layout.

Talk to us.

Tell us more about your manuscript by filling in a quick questionnaire. Before we start, we’ll send you the recommended changes and lead times for your service selection. Once you approve these changes, we’ll get started.

After the editorial changes are complete, you’ll get a digital proof for review and signoff. Then, we’ll set up your book for global print and ebook distribution.

Get published.

Congratulations, your book has been released into the wild! It’s now time for a chat with your consultant. We’ll take you through the basics of managing your title as well as setting up pricing, promotions and giveaways.

If you’ve selected any marketing services, we’ll also walk you through your marketing campaign, teaching you how to use the tools and content platforms in your customized marketing plan.
