          Typesetting, work title, cover design

          In most cases, non-fiction books and scientific specialist literature are published by AKRES Publishing without the need for printing cost subsidies. After reviewing the manuscript, in the case of a complex design, it may be that the publisher will ask you to participate in making up the costs of the text typesetting (does not apply to fiction).

          In consultation with you, we will decide on a title for the work and create a concept for the cover design. We are happy to take your ideas into account and incorporate any graphics or fonts you may have.

          Authors of the publishing house receive a discount on the retail price for orders from the AKRES Publishing programme. If you would like to place an author order in our bookshop, please create a user account and then contact us by email so that we can apply the discount to your user account.

          You will receive an attractive personal discount on your own works. We will give you more details in the course of preparing the contract for publication.
