Book Publisher Empowers Writers Through Self-Publishing

Ottawa, ON – is rapidly becoming the ‘go-to’ resource for Canadian and international writers who wish to self-publish. With a wide range of services available, Agora Publishing sees itself as an attractive alternative to online services such as CreateSpace and Lulu.

“We can help your manuscript become a professionally published book,” says company spokesperson Peter Tremblay. “As the writer, you will have full control over what is, after all, your intellectual property. And who knows, maybe you have a bestseller in the works!”

Agora Publishing offers a comprehensive range of services, including:

  • Advice and consultation
  • Manuscript evaluation
  • ISBN registration
  • Books-in-print
  • Book websites and author’s blog design
  • Simple copy editing or substantive editing
  • Professional typesetting and layout (vital to authors to achieve a professional look and mass-marketability)
  • Bilingual and multilingual book self-publishing options
  • Search engine marketing (SEM)
  • Social media marketing (SMM)
  • Search engine optimization (SEO)
  • Book distribution coordination
  • Coordination of author signings at bookstores
  • News release writing and distribution to promote the book
  • And a host of other marketing options.

“We have every possible need covered,” adds Tremblay. “You won’t have to access any other resources – we’ve thought of everything. We provide our writers with the kind of quality control that you wouldn’t be able to get with our competitors, like Create Space or Lulu.”

Agora also welcomes book self-publishing projects proposed by writers who seek an alternative to corporate trade publishing, which nowadays tend not to accept ‘unsolicited manuscripts.’  In fact, writers who seek an alternative to the rejection letters offered by corporate trade publishers and the lack of quality control offered by Agora Publishing’s competitors are strongly encouraged to contact Agora.


“Sad to say, the overwhelming majority of self-published books these days don’t meet the same standards as the major publishing houses.  As a result, the marketing and sales of these books suffer,” Tremblay explains. “At Agora Publishing we offer a wide range of services to writers that, quite frankly, is second to none in the industry.”


Driven by volunteers who have a high level of professional industry experience in book publishing, Agora believes in the vital importance of hands-on customer service. Their mission lies in helping writers achieve the production of a stunning, high quality book which will more than exceed their expectations.


Agora additionally offers free consultation with writers via Skype, as well as free seminars to communities of writers on the topic of book self-publishing.


Agora Publishing is a community service founded in Ottawa and Toronto, Canada, part of a not-for-profit organization founded in 1997 which relies on pledges and other donations from the community.
