* Author Hands-on refers to the author's participation in decision making about their work.
** Personal touch refers to our help with marketing, author's access to the publisher, easily reaching a human instead of an auto-responder.

Note- These are major companies. These are all exclusive agreements except company 2. You cannot publish your book elsewhere. With Company 2, many services you might wish to add on (such as marketing help) are offered for a fee of $50 and up.
Under Sirius Publications non-exclusive agreement, you pay some extra fees but then you can publish anywhere else you choose (of course that would be anywhere else that offers a nonexclusive contract).
