My experience in the publishing industry has been very diverse. I have worked as a writer, editor (Senior Editor, Oxford University Press), typesetter and designer (Senior Designer, Reader’s Digest), book production manager (Production Manager, Self-Counsel Press), and publisher (Technical Publisher, InfoMine). I have published hundreds of books in print and digital format (Kindle, Kobo, Smashwords, PDFs, EPUBS, Flipping Books, etc.). Here are just a few of the books I have published in the last five years.
As a skilled editor, writer, and book publisher, I can manage every step of the publication process for you. So if you have a manuscript that you want to get published, I can help you to publish it. Self-publishing offers a way for almost anyone to publish a book. You can very soon have your book available for order as both an electronic book and a printed book, without paying for printing. However, it’s a complex and constantly changing field. I can advise you on the best path for you.
Depending on your needs, this might range from a comprehensive package in which I do everything for you, from editing your manuscript to publishing your book. However, we might decide that all you need is an hour or two of consultation, and you’ll be equipped to publish your book on your own.
I don’t have preset packages; rather, I treat each client as unique, because of course, you are unique.
Just contact me to discuss your needs. I don’t charge for consultations, and you will incur no obligation whatsoever.
Read What Some of My Past and Current Clients Have Said About My Book Publishing Services
“With Joe as my editor I am fortunate indeed, having found the best in the field. He quickly transformed my typescript into a gorgeous book. The page layout and font are so visually satisfying that I often want to cut out pages and frame them. He learned new programs to handle some of the technical aspects of my topic, and he purchased new fonts to enable me to publish text in Greek. He patiently led me through all the steps of publication. Though the publishing world was new and obscure to me, my book turned out so spectacularly beautiful that I have entrusted a second typescript to his expert hands. His advice and his reassurance comforted me. He prepared layouts promptly for the many versions and revisions that I sent him. I felt his warm humanity follow and direct me all throughout the process, and I shall ask Joe Goodwill to oversee the publication of everything that I write in the future.”
John Ibberson, independent scholar and author of Autonomous Reason: A Defense of Rationality Against Naturalistic Materialism
“Joe has worked on my team since the inception of the Conferences division and has managed all our conference publications. He is our trusted expert on all matters to do with publishing, and has edited and published several volumes of technical conference proceedings that meet the highest standards of academic publishing. He was instrumental in growing our social media platforms and has done so with astonishing speed and enthusiasm. Joe is also a great team member, collaborative and fun to work with. I would unhesitatingly recommend Joe to anyone who needs a publishing, communications or social media expert who they can fully trust to handle projects completely on his own, on schedule, and with good spirit and complete professionalism.”
Olga Cherepanova, Manager, Canadian International Resources and Development Institute (CIRDI), Vancouver
“I came across Joe when I was trying to publish my manuscript. I had offers from both traditional publishers and self publishers, but I had concerns about both options. At first, Joe edited a small section of my manuscript to demonstrate his style of editing, and I was very impressed with his work. In our first meeting, Joe described to me in detail the pros and cons of choosing different options on the table. After listening to him, I felt very informed about the entire process. He then offered me a great package that included doing all the necessary work on my manuscript, and preparing it to be published by the world’s most reputable publishing company. He always made sure that I was happy with every aspect of his work, and helped me to make the best decisions along the way. He met his deadlines, and made himself available to me anytime I needed him. He never hesitated to help me with anything I needed, even long after my book was published – a true professional. I found him to be very honest, with a great sense of integrity. I can assure you of one thing, you will not regret hiring Joe!”
Homayoun Amin, author of A Time of Awakening
“I am more than happy to provide a recommendation for Joe Goodwill. He is a consummate publishing professional who deftly manages the production of all of our Conference Proceedings. We always know we will have a beautiful, professional proceedings volume to distribute at our international conferences, and this is a major relief for the whole team. That is in fact something Joe also shines at – he is such a reliable member of the team, a true professional who you can count on all the time, every time. We all rely on him to make sure our communications pieces are 100% professional and correct. I enjoy working with Joe very much.”
Susana Perez, InfoMine, Vancouver
