We have learned writing and publishing from the ground up, from outlining, drafting, editing, design, publishing and promotion for success.  This site is meant to encapsulate our learnings to share with you. We provide free resources so you can learn along the way and completely Do-It-Yourself (DIY) as an indie author.  That is how we learned and make those resources available to you.  We focus and help you at the intersection of writing, design and technology.

 

The Meaning Behind the Brand

inkit_final_logo_no_artboard_jpgThe creative writing process starts with an idea and concepts.  These have historically been recorded using pen (Ink!) and many creative artists still use ink instead of technology for their creative beginning.  It was often a solitary effort done by yourself.

Things are far different today.  Computers, and now the cloud, provide sophisticated apps and capabilities to draw upon resources never before possible.  With the right tools and IT (Information Technology) you get get the job of writing and publishing done much, much faster and with higher quality than ever before.  We want to help you take your creative writing start (Ink) and leverage the tools (IT) available today to be able to publish the highest quality material in the most efficient manner of work.  Therefore InkIT Publishing is what we call ourselves!

Our Goal

Our goal is simple: it is to provide a platform for you to become a successful writer.  The principles to support that goal are clear:

  • Help you understand and be able to able to perform all activities required for writing and publishing
  • Provide resources, control and confidence to do what you can do yourself and only involve us when necessary – we only do what you ask us to do and do not want to do yourself
  • Constantly focus on improving writing and publishing quality and efficiency.  We are continually dissecting and optimizing the writing and publishing processes
  • Be your partner, customer and service provider.  While we will charge for some services, our greatest reward is curating our knowledge and providing that to the broader writing community
  • Share and broker information and relationships to help you build your publishing and promotion street team

Ultimately, we want you to be equipped as well as possible to become the best writer you can, regardless if you go the traditional publishing route or want to be an indie author.  We help get you published quickly and inexpensively.

Policies

Affiliation Policy

We do not believe in making money off of others, nor being swayed to recommend products or courses where we would earn a sales commission. We have tried it previously and, frankly, dislike it! Every recommendation we make is based solely on our belief you are reviewing the best product or training courses available. We do not accept any sales commission on our recommendations.

Sourcing and Citing

This website provides many free resources.  Many of those resources we have built ourselves over time and through proven experience; others have been curated from centuries of efforts by others.  The resources are free for you to use and share.  However, we ask that proper sourcing of credit is provided, either to us or the original creator of the material.  We always try to citate and provide proper credit and ask you to do the same.

    We would always strike an arrangement that provided you control over the future choices you make regarding how you decide to publish. However, at this time we are not taking on any new authors as we are focused on developing a series of online training courses for author for the mass market.
