Your manuscript! Reach out via text at +1 (978) 312-2324. We will send along information to share your work.  Your manuscript should be digital and typed. 

Pumpkin Vines can hook you up with an editor.  Editors charge by the page, word or hour depending on the type of editing required.  

Pumpkin Vines expects that files will not come to us press ready.  That is fine.  We will discuss your hopes and vision for the project and then work up a price for the required services. 

Depending on style you can work with an inhouse illustrator or we can broker a deal for your illustrations. 

Pumpkin Vines does not work with previously purchased ISBN numbers.  All books published with our help must use one of our numbers.  The fee for an ISBN through Pumpkin Vines is $295 for up to 3 ISBN numbers - One for the hardcover, paperback and e-book.  Our fee includes uploading your cover and your book's information.  This information will be stored in the 'Books in Print' database which is consulted by publishers, retailers and libraries around the world. 
We work directly with the official ISBN Agency for publishers physically located in the United States and its territories. If an ISBN is obtained from a source other than the official ISBN Agency, it might not identify the publisher of the title accurately. This can have implications for doing business in the publishing industry supply chain.

Depending on the package that you choose there are a range of options for promotion of your new book.
