Your manuscript should be in one file and not separate files for each chapter or section. Please use Microsoft Word format. By submitting, you agree that you have full rights over the submission. The rights will still remain with the writer. Regrettably, we do not pay for submissions.

The manuscript must be sent to writers@amazwipublishing.co.za – with your name and “Fiction Submission” or “Poetry Submission” in the subject line. You may submit as many articles as you wish, but each submission must contain only one article.

We believe in self publishing!

Why must you self publish:

  1. Follow your own timeline
  2. Control your story
  3. Higher royalties
  4. You control the costs
  5. You have final say on everything (cover, design, print quantities etc)

What do we offer you:

  1. Proof reading and language editing of the book
  2. Obtain ISBN for all versions
  3. Design of the book cover
  4. Typesetting
  5. Website for the book
  6. Kindle publishing
  7. Printing
  8. Social media pages and marketing

What will it cost?

No two pieces of work are exactly the same, so we cannot give a fixed price. However, the guide below will give you an idea of the break down of costs :

For a 200 page novel:

Proof read and language edit the book
Obtain ISBN for all versions
Design book cover and back cover
Kindle publishing (includes formatting into kindle format)                                                  Face book page

The above, excluding printing, will cost R4000. Printing for 100 copies will be approx R65 per copy. We charge a once off print facilitation fee of R500. 

Total cost for a 200 page novel = R11,000
