No!  Do your homework here when shopping around.
At Thirsty Camel, we NEVER take ownership to the rights of your manuscript. At no point in time, are you ever without having the ability of fully owning all rights to your work.

Many, many places will hold the rights for a year or more before you can even access the files to your work. Only then are you charged another fee to regain access to the rights to your book.

We create the book for you, and delivered it in several formats back.
No hidden scenerios here. 
We are in the relationship business. Our names are read all over the world publicly; without our reputations, we would not have the successes realized from a lifetime of interacting with customers and delivering quality work. We stand by our principles of honesty and integrity in all we do.
There are many layers to delivering comprehensive work regarding book design. Though we cannot guarantee a set delivery date, we believe a reasonable timetable is 60-90 days on average. We want your book to see the world as much as we do, but not at the expense of quality, ever!
At Thirsty Camel, we do our best to deliver a seamless and hassle-free experience for you in terms of seeing your book become a reality. Though we do not create any marketing campaigns per se, we showcase our authors on our website, newsletter, sponsored book signing events, and other avenues we have available at the time of release.
We can create an author website for an additional fee to allow our authors to shine on their own too!
To possibly do it cheaper, you have two options:
You certainly can take time learning, making mistakes, and gambling on the outcome to be the highest class and quality to meet your expectations. You are on your own.

Another option for you is to parcel out several chunks of the book publishing process. With each entity that touches your project, you are at the mercy of their quality, work ethic, and dependability. There is also hardly any time to establish a relationship of trust.

At Thirsty Camel, we make it easy for you to focus your energies on selling rather than creating. We believe in continuity from start to finish. One company, one set of expectations, one business to meet your expectations, and one heck of a fun experience!

Here, you become an integral part of the process and, subsequently, part of our long-term community.

Without you, there is no us. Period.
Absolutely! Once you become a part of our community, you are entitled to discounted services in the future.
Reach out to us via telephone or e-mail. From there, we schedule an informal no-cost meeting to discuss your project, needs, and timing.

We can produce whatever you need to market and promote your book. There is separate fee for this, but know we are professional design company.
