"The Passion Translation was launched by the skill of the Sanders. We will be forever grateful for the years we spent with their publishing company. 5 Fold Media is one of the best; you can trust them to lead you on the right path."
The world we live in as authors today is diverse; publishing is diverse and can be complex. In order to meet the growing changes and demands of authors worldwide, 5 Fold Media specializes in co-publishing, self-publishing, and other publishing services. From design and manufacturing all the way to distribution, marketing, and fulfillment, our professional team is ready to work with you, the author, on your project. Sometimes authors just need a little coaching and training through the publishing process, or they may simply need individual publishing services (such as graphic design, interior design/layout, editing, printing, etc.). We are also prepared and ready to supply our clients with what they need to get them to the next level of their writing goals.
Our Professional Publishing Options include:
This program is designed for authors, first-time or previously published, who need to order a larger quantity of books because of the scope of their ministry or business. The author will purchase a significant quantity of books at a very large discount at the first print run. With this program, 5 Fold Media will cover the manufacturing cost for the book project, which includes everything from editing to distribution.
This program is for the avid writer who is called to be an author and is ready to be propelled to the next level of business or ministry. You may already travel and/or have an authority in the field that you wish to write about, but your current publishing needs do not require you to purchase a large quantity of books up front. The author will pay for the manufacturing cost of the book and purchase a smaller quantity of books. This program is similar to a self-publishing model, however, it offers a higher quality of product and service with greater standards in the industry.

Other Publishing Services:
The services listed below are for authors and clients who are self-publishing and need a service we provide, have previously published a book and need some additional work, or are starting the process for the first time and want individual services like those listed below. In this scenario, we offer the same high quality service and skill, but with individual prices based on what each author needs. For example, an author may choose to publish their book through CreateSpace, but want us to handle editing and layout. We are happy to assist in whatever area is needed.
