Dark Harbor Publishing is a service… Not a book publisher


You’ve done it! You poured your heart and soul into your work and now you are ready for the world to see it. But, is it really ready to be seen? And how will readers find it in today’s flooded book market?


We offer everything the indie writer needs to self-publish their work: editing, formatting, and book cover-design for print or eBook. We will walk you through the maze of services like amazon’s publishing portal. Along with creative content writing, we also offer Indie Authors website-design & hosting. We work with most genres’ including children’s books


One of the biggest mistakes you can make as a author is not getting your book edited properly. Sure, we’ve all seen books on the market with poor editing, some by best selling authors. If you’ve noticed these errors, so has everyone else. What this means is that if you expect your work of art to stand above the rest it needs to be edited professionally.
