Many authors have experienced frustration in getting their work accepted by national publishers. At Cincinnati Book Publishing, we believe in empowering authors with an entrepreneurial approach to publishing. We provide assistance with editing, art and design, print production, marketing, bookstore sales, direct mail and fulfillment, and securing funding for non-profit ventures, allowing authors to successfully and knowledgeably self-publish their work.

As a Cincinnati, Ohio firm, we partner with the best local creators that the community has to offer. With impeccable craftsmanship and affordable prices, working with local talent allows authors to create a high-quality product while also remaining heavily involved in the publishing process.

Cincinnati Book Publishing is a motivated publisher. We are willing and able to move quickly and take advantage of opportunities in the marketplace. We’ll provide prompt feedback and analysis about your manuscript. 


If you have a manuscript or an idea for a book, we’d like to hear about it.
