PublishingGurus was started in 2009 by designer Sunny Kapoor, also known as Wicked Sunny, and Editor Betsy Gordon.
Within just one year, we have designed, edited, and formatted more than 70 books, and have helped authors to publish their books.
Now, as PublishingGurus moves into our next stage of growth as a publishing company, we are proud to offer new services for our prospective clients. We can now provide them with all the necessary help required in publishing their books, as well as in promoting them.
We have also begun offering tutorials and workshops, through which we can share our knowledge by teaching various software programs and art techniques.
Whether you're planning to publish your book or submit your manuscript to a publishing company, or if you're thinking of "print on demand" or electronic downloading for your work, we can provide the expertise and the services you need to get your book out in the world.
Our Focus is on QUALITY.
A book from PublishingGurus is a GOOD BOOK, no matter what its genre - a readable book, well-edited and beautifully designed. You won't find our name on an inferior, disorganized, worthless document in a pretty cover. If your manuscript requires editing to be as good as it can be, we'll let you know, and we'll offer you an affordable editing package. Your editor will work closely with you to perfect your book, while always preserving your unique "voice."
PublishingGurus is not another print-on-demand company that's ready to publish any book without proper editing or formatting. Our goal is not to print many thousands of books, as boasted by other publishing houses. We concentrate on producing only high-quality books, even though that means publishing a smaller number of books.
