A MANA MONTH Call for Manuscripts on Sports or Outdoor Activities

For the past year, we've had a special day called MANA MONDAY. This was a day when a particular type of theme or genre or writer type would be submitted. We've changed this slightly and now instead of having one special day, we will have 30 days which we call MANA MONTH!

So, for the month of March, MANA is calling for manuscripts dealing with sports or outdoor activities. With MANA MONTH,  you will receive 20% off the cost of any MANA self-publishing plan with only $250 down. MANA's plans include editing, proofreading, an author's web page on MANA's web site, e-commerce services, digital marketing, printing, cover designs and color covers. MANA also offers a Print-On-Demand service. 

MANA can tailor a self-publishing plan that can fit your budget. MANA provides print books or E-books. Take advantage of this opportunity by submitting your manuscript on sports or outdoor activities by March 31 along with a down payment of $250.
