The book business has changed profoundly since Origin Press was launched over 15 years ago as a traditional book publisher. Because of today’s explosion of self-publishing, we have diversified into third-party services for aspiring authors or small presses. These services are detailed in the links provided under the Author Services menu, but are summarized briefly below.
Byron Belitsos, founder of OMI, has extensive experience in all aspects of the editorial development of promising manuscripts, including the preparation of book proposals. He also provides referrals (as may be needed) to manuscript readers, ghost writers, copy editors, and proofreaders.
GENERAL CONSULTING SERVICES
We also extensively consult to authors, self-publishers, e-publishers, and other small presses. After our hard-won experience of publishing or managing dozens of new titles, it is a great pleasure to assist those seeking advice in the difficult terrain of today’s publishing world. Consultations can range from manuscript evaluation to marketing and publicity strategy, or anything in between.
If you are a previously published author with a high quality manuscript and a strong “platform” of recognition in your field, please consider sending a query to our literary agency (see the link under the “Author Services” menu).
