Even though RiJan Publishing is a new literary publishing company, it has been in business as a music publishing company since 2003. Rick Sikes and myself established the company to publish music for Indie artists as well as our own music. It advanced to a literary publishing company in 2013 when I self-published my first creative non-fiction novel.
I chose to publish my own work through RiJan due to the current climate in the world of traditional publishing. I had no expertise in this process, but thankfully I was divinely directed to a team of experts who could provide what I needed to successfully publish and it was affordable.
After listening to many authors express their discouragement and disappointment in the struggles they had from getting their manuscript edited, to a poorly designed book cover to struggling with the layout and design to satisfy CreateSpace or whatever format they were uploading to, I decided I needed to share the wonderful experience I had been lucky to find in publishing my own books.
From all of that experience, I decided to create a unique publishing company that could help authors and music artists bring their dream to life.
I have designed unique package options in which you custom design to fit your personal needs. Once you choose your package, then I can provide a cost estimate for the services you desire. In this way, you get to choose exactly what you want and need without getting stuck paying for a service you don’t care to have.
I have also produced music CD’s and have expertise with copyrighting, ISRC’s, listing with BMI or ASCAP and SoundExchange.
