Find your appropriate Expert

tredition does not offer editing or illustration services to authors directly. The reason for that is simple. We want our authors to have a choice of who they work with and not to buy a pig in a poke when ordering all-inclusive packages from other self-publishing companies. However, we are happy to recommend experts for editing, proofreading, typesetting and illustration. These selected and accredited experts have helped thousands of self-publishers to bring their books to a professional level.
Authors and experts agree on the terms and conditions directly. tredition has not stake in this. If you choose to work together on a royalty-share basis, authors can have a share of their royalty be paid out to the expert directly by tredition. The information is provided during the publication process. All of the experts below look forward to your inquiries.
