Glorybound Publishing is dynamic with their professional services.
We assist authors (who are in any stage of the writing-publishing-printing process) to get to their goals. Since 2005, Glorybound has been helping to publish, print and release books of many types. We have published children’s books, family history, historical novels, text books and much more. We offer a unique opportunity when an author or artist works with us because, not only do we work on releasing the best professionally done book possible, but we have options to print and bind sample copies on-site immediately. This gives authors ready opportunity to edit and inspect their books prior to expanded printing and release to public sales. Books are printed a variety of ways. Recently, we were printing and binding all of our own books, however, recently we have changed to upload books for printing by an arm of Amazon called KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing). Using the KDP option coupled with Amazon, our authors are able to release their books very quickly into the world-wide market as well as order copies for themselves at reduced prices (below what we can print them for in our office).
We assist with KDP (formerly Create Space) to put your books directly on Amazon. Authors have maximum exposure and make more money on their books than conventional printing. On average our authors are receiving a royalty of $7 per book on sales. Print on demand is the way to go! Glorybound Publishing can help you, no matter what stage your book is in. Use the contact page, email or phone our office to get started on enabling your dream to come true.

BRAIN-E-BOOKS ACROBAT AND SCAN OPTIONS
Authors type using Word, but the book becomes published using a program called Acrobat which produces a ‘frozen’ document. This way the text and pictures don’t move about when the book is released as a digital book (such as Kindle) or printed. The best way to make books is to type the words into Word and add them with the pictures into software called In Design. Then the files are compressed at a high resolution to produce the most vibrant pictures and text. If anyone has attempted to put pictures into Word, he knows that is difficult to control them. Word is not meant to be used for building books. Another problem with using Word to build books is that, although the files can be converted to PDF, the pictures become de-graded and are not as vibrant. In Design retains the original picture as an attachment to the document, so the best possible book is produced. In Design is the dominate pagination software—hands down. At Glorybound Publishing, we build books using In Design and then convert the files to high-resolution PDF files for upload to KDP or Printing Companies (when the author desires printed copies only) for the best result. If you already have a PDF, then we can increase its security and visibility to be found on the web. Here are some of the options we offer. Expanded definitions are below the price list.
