More about Publishing, Rights, and Marketing
Publishing has two different roads: traditional publishing and self-publishing. Writers who want to become published authors can self-publish with Citi of Books. Self-publishing is a method of distributing media by the creator without the involvement of a traditional publisher. It involves several steps before completion. The first stage is writing the manuscript, followed by editing. The post-publication stage includes book distribution and marketing campaigns. COB provides all these services to authors to ensure the success of a book.
You only need to complete your manuscript, and the rest will be taken care of by COB.
After you submit your manuscript, it will undergo a content evaluation to ensure that it meets the content guidelines for publishing. Our evaluation team will review any materials submitted that may violate the law or human rights, or that are excessively inappropriate or offensive.
