Not Ready to Have a Full Publishing Plan? Try The MANA Partial

Do you want your manuscript prepared for publishing but are not quite ready for a full publishing plan?  Then, consider "The MANA PARTIAL."

MANA's service will save you money! The greatest cost is the initial preparation of turning a manuscript into a book. That cost involves layout and artwork and cover designs.
