We work really hard to make your publishing process with us as easy as possible. The process time is based on several factors:
1. If we can match you with awesome Comp-Authors
2. If payments are received on time and in time for publishing.
3. You getting your contents into our publishing department at a timely manner.
4. You getting your Book Publishing Agreement completed and submitted in a timely manner.
5. Your eagerness to get your writings into print.
The one thing that makes our service so unique is that we not only do all the work putting your compilation materials together, we will also match you up with others who are looking to publish a compilation book as well.
We make your Compilation publishing experience one to be treasured. We connect you with other writers who are searching for Comp-Authors who are writing about the same genres with similar knowledge for the chosen topic.
Would you rather publish your own book, no problem. Visit our "A la carte" for more publishing options.
There are now over 200 titles in the “Chicken Soup” series, each one made up of stories from people that inspire readers globally.

Writing is all about connecting with the one who is reading your book. Before writing your story, consider these three basic questions.
View the list of genres below to find one that will fit your book idea. If you don't see your genre, you can create your own Compilation Table.
We refer to Publishing Clients who are assigned or contracted to a chosen Comp Table as Comp Authors.
Griot Publishing will include a page outlining how other authors can become published, and reserves the right to inform readers of additional products and services in any publication. All authors taking part can promote any product or service they offer in their bio at the end of their chapter, however you cannot do so in the body of your chapter, only at the end. This extra page will not be included as a charge in your package. Griot Publishing reserves the right to reject products and services that are a conflict of interest to the co-Author or book subject.
The book will be priced at $16.95 each and printed in the barcode. We included the price on the back cover to allow you leverage to adjust the price as you wish. We recommend that you sell your book for $12.95 + $2.95 shipping and handling. You can also sell it for $16.95 and offer free shipping. At the end of the day, it is up to you whatever price you choose to sell it for.
Yes. We will perform basic editing on every manuscript being submitted for each Comp Table. If your manuscript requires extensive editing, you will be given the option to purchase our proofreading/editing service that will correct your manuscript and get it print ready. You can also work with your co-Author to help you with your chapter to avoid additional costs.
It is almost impossible for us to reject a chapter. This is because our goal is to connect you with other Authors who would make great co-Authors in a comp book. However, while we believe we can find a place for any Author, we are aware that there may be that one time where we will have to reject a chapter. If WE do not accept your chapter (at the sole discretion of Griot Publishing), we will refund 100% of your down payment, so you have nothing to lose!
Each Comp Table has a set amount of Authors which have deadlines, so once you've committed to be included in a Comp book, we prefer that you follow through with your commitment for that book. Although there are no refunds (except if WE reject your chapter), we do understand things happen. So in some instances we can transfer you to a future book project at a later date if required.
When you want someone to review your work, you should have their undivided attention. The Griot Publishing staff already has their plate full working with other Authors trying to make deadlines, so with that being said, please do NOT send us any manuscripts/books or ask us to read any at this time. We do offer an Assessment service if you desire professionals to proofread your work.
Because others are on the same project and deadlines have to be made, we do not offer payment plans that will exceed past 6 months. Because we do not offer refunds, we have made our payment plans under $100 to assist in making it easier for you to make your payments. Please make sure that this is something that you can commit to before making your down payment and sending in your manuscript.
Griot Publishing owns the copyright to the actual book, however, YOU (Author) retain full copyright for your own contributed chapter. Since you are the owner of your chapter within the book, you can use it as an article, expand on it to write a complete book or record it for a bonus mp3 audio. You do not have the right to use your co-Author’s chapters outside of the contract without the written permission from him/her for any reason.
Of Course! There will be room for you at the end of your chapter to include your name, your business name, your web address, phone, an offer to encourage people to visit your BookSite. The idea of the book is to showcase you to the world, so we make it easy for the media and potential clients and customers to contact you.
