Kharis Publishing Launches Freedom Press, an Innovative Self-Publishing Platform
Maximum author control and flexibility. Professional editing and cover design included. Totally unique approach to self-publishing.

Everyone who has ever written a book knows how difficult it is to get published by one of the traditional publishing houses. Even when you have a good manuscript written, there are the other common hurdles you have to overcome: big platform, national name recognition, and huge following on social media. Many good manuscripts are turned away, not because they are not necessarily good or compelling stories, but because economic considerations are not in their favor. This is the reason self-publishing has become a rather attractive option for many writers. Yet, too many self-published books are poorly edited, with unattractive book covers. If you are going to self-publish your book, you might as well do it professionally. That's exactly what the Publisher hopes to achieve with Freedom Press.

The Publisher hopes to give authors full control and flexibility over their manuscript. For example, not only do Freedom Press authors retain the copyright, they are also paid a whopping 60% royalty on net receipts, with the added option to transfer publishing license to another publisher after two years.
Many analysts believe that this combination of professional editing, cover design, and complete author control and flexibility is likely to separate Freedom Press from the crowded space of self-publishing. One only hopes that their approach succeeds, if only to spur the kind of competition needed to improve the indie book publishing ecosystem.
