How to Publish an e-Chapbook on This Site
A payment of $50 is all that is needed to start production. See Cost page to place the order.
In addition to the writing itself, each e-chapbook includes a cover page and author bio page with contact information, previous publications and author photo, if you wish, so email these as well. If you have a photo or artwork you like for the cover page, please send that, too. Otherwise, Chapbooks Online will find something appropriate to your piece. Background and other colors will vary, depending on the cover art.
Editing and proofing. Consider hiring someone for an objective edit and proofreading. Ask for input on which poem, story or essay should go first, which one last, and whether the title invites the reader into the work. Also ask if the chapbook would be better if a few pieces were eliminated and strongly consider the advice. Chapbooks Online can arrange this service for you.
The intention is to establish a network of links to the writing community and plenty of traffic to the site. This is a work in progress, stay tuned!
