Books-on-Commission

Are you looking for a creative gift idea for friends or family?

Are you a teacher who wants to give your students the feeling of publication to spark their creative desires?

Are you just a shy writer who wants to put out a limited run of books to "test the waters" of in-person book sales?

Then releasing a Chapbook is the right course of action for you!

For a nominal fee, Writing Knights Press will produce your commissioned manuscript with the same care and attention to detail we show to all of our releases.

Added Benefits:
          Writing Knights Press will give you the option of having your book listed in our online store as a print chapbook and available for Kindle.
          Writing Knights can incorporate our logo on the back of your book for no extra charge.

           This will give your book an extra look of legitimacy when you try to sell it.

          Profits from books sold by Writing Knights in person go to the press.

          Writing Knights Press does NOT publish work condoning: bestiality, child abuse, incest, or hate speech.
