There are only 51 days until Christmas. That’s 36 business days. Most full-service print on demand/publishing services firms take around 4-6 months to get a book to market. Some offer rush services but NONE of them offers a 2-week publishing program…except BookLocker.
The regular BookLocker publishing program (called “At Your Service“) gets a book to market within a month. However, that would make your book available around the first week of December. That’s far too late.
BookLocker has an EXPEDITED PUBLISHING OPTION (currently $1,199) that gets a print book to market within just two weeks. If you are interested in that option, you need to SIGN UP RIGHT NOW. We work on books in the order files are received so we recommend getting in the door now. We always receive a huge influx of new authors the first two weeks of November.
Please don’t wait until even next week. Why stress yourself out this close to the holidays? Sign up RIGHT AWAY and we’ll get right to work for you. 🙂
THE FINE PRINT
BookLocker’s Expedited Publishing Program is only available for black-and-white-interior books. Color-interior books take longer. The Expedited option gets a book to market two weeks after an author sends their final file to us. If an author waits until the very last minute to make edits to the formatted file we send to them to check, that will cause delays, of course. Please don’t stress yourself (and us!) out by doing that. 😉
BookLocker’s Books on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Walmart.com, Chapters.ca, Overdrive, Kobo, Target.com, and BooksAMillion. BookLocker’s books are also available from Apple (search through your device), and are available from numerous other retailers worldwide as well!

Angela Hoy is the publisher of WritersWeekly.com, the author of 19 books, and the co-owner of BookLocker.com (one of the original POD publishers that still gets books to market in less than a month), PubPreppers.com (print and ebook design for authors who truly want to self-publish), and Abuzz Press (the publishing co-op that charges no setup fees).
Angela has lived and traveled across the U.S. with her kids in an RV, settled in a river-side home in Bradenton, FL, and lived on a 52 ft Irwin sailboat.

WritersWeekly.com - the free marketing ezine for writers, which features new paying markets and freelance job listings every Wednesday.
BookLocker.com - According to attorney Mark Levine, author of The Fine Print, BookLocker is: "As close to perfection as you're going to find in the world of ebook and POD publishing. The ebook royalties are the highest I've ever seen, and the print royalties are better than average. BookLocker understands what new authors experience, and have put together a package that is the best in the business. You can't go wrong here. Plus, they're selective and won't publish any manuscript just because it's accompanied by a check. Also, the web site is well trafficked. If you can find a POD or epublisher with as much integrity and dedication to selling authors' books, but with lower POD publishing fees, please let me know."
Abuzz Press offers FAST and FREE book publication, but only accepts a small percentage of submissions, and only works with U.S. authors.
PubPreppers.com - "We Prep, You Publish!" Print and ebook design for authors who truly want to self-publish. Offers formatting and design services only, and then provides simple instructions for authors on where to sign up to have the print and ebook editions printed/listed/sold. Cut out the middle man. Keep 100% of what bookstores pay for your book!

How Many Copies Of Your Book Would You Have To Sell In Order To Break Even?
