Our Publishing Service
Welcome to Stone Crest Books, the business book publishing arm of Dinosaur House.
Our publishing program is a premier professional self-publishing program for people who have a completed manuscript.
This service is designed for entrepreneurs, consultants, executives, and other professionals who want to publish a high-level professional book, but need to make sure it is absolutely the best book possible.
What's Included in our Print Publishing Service?
Our Publishing Package is everything you need to get from a finished manuscript to a professionally published book.
We execute a full copyedit and a final proofread on your manuscript to ensure that spelling and grammar mistakes are caught and removed.
BOOK COVER DESIGN
Our designers have trained under Forbes Books bestsellers to deliver to our customers best-in-the-world level designs that sit nicely with the covers of greats like: Can’t Hurt Me; Zero to One; I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell; Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea; Choose Yourself.
At Dinosaur House Publishing, we take our interiors seriously. Your manuscript isn’t just a drag and drop template—it’s a chance to create a cohesive visual experience for your reader, from the cover to the final page.
DISTRIBUTION AND ROYALTY SETUP
We will set up all your distributor and retailer accounts in your name on all major platforms, including Amazon and BarnesandNoble.com. This means you will own all your own content and royalties.
EBOOK CREATION AND DISTRIBUTION
Your eBook/Kindle will be available on all major eBook retailers (Amazon, BarnesandNoble.com) in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, India, Japan, Mexico, and Australia. eBooks include all relevant copy tailored to each retailer, including samples, screenshots, and keywords.
We will ensure your book will be available in paperback print-on-demand format, distributed through both Amazon’s KDP platform and IngramSpark’s wider distribution channels, which assures that your book is available for purchase by physical retailers (Barnes & Noble) and libraries worldwide.
OPTIONAL HARDCOVER PRINTING & MANAGEMENT
You have the option, at no additional charge, to have a hardcover as well. We will design and lay out the hardcover, and manage all printing and distribution. We can also help you set up fulfillment services with Amazon, if necessary.
COPYRIGHTING AND CATALOGING
Once complete, your manuscript will be registered with the United States copyright office. Your book will also be registered in Bowker’s Books In Print database and will be assigned all ISBN, bar, and BISAC codes necessary for retail distribution.
Your book will be eligible to be published under one of our imprints, Big Print or Dinosaur House or it can be published under a custom imprint with a name of your choosing.
A great author photo is a powerful tool. Send us your excellent professional photos and we will help you determine which we think fit best and where.
AUTHOR MARKETING MATERIALS
Our copywriting pros will craft an engaging author bio and book description to ensure your book is interesting and appealing to your ideal readers.
We can design up to 10 graphics for your manuscript and include up to 25 graphics provided you’d like to add some of your own.
100 FREE COPIES
You will receive 100 free copies of your book to use as you like—for keepsakes, gifts, or promotional purposes.
