RiverRun, the independently owned bookstore in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is also the home of the independent publisher Piscataqua Press. Using the latest print-on-demand publishing technology, Piscataqua Press produces high-quality hardcovers and trade paperbacks. Books can also be available as ebooks through Amazon (Kindle) and Barnes and Noble (Nook). The physical books are available through Ingram Book Group, the largest book distributor in the country. The books are also, of course, sold at RiverRun Bookstore.
I offer editorial services at a 15% discount to authors who have contracted to publish with Piscataqua Press. These services include content editing, in which I review a complete manuscript with an eye toward necessary revisions; line and copy editing, which entails working on the actual text to make sure the writing is clean and sharp, as well as grammatically correct, and fact checking; and proofreading, either of the manuscript before it is typeset or after, prior to publication. I also provide cover consultation and will write or edit back-cover copy.
If you are thinking of self-publishing, I highly recommend contacting the excellent team at Piscataqua Press. Tell them you heard about the Press from me.
