Corrugated Sky's hybrid publishing model combines the control and time to market that self-publishing offers with the high-quality book production, book marketing, and book distribution that’s usually only been available to traditionally published authors. We want our authors to have more control over their own works and be happy with the process.

As a boutique publisher, there are production-related costs each of our authors pay. In exchange, we manage the production process and provide our authors access to distribution channels they would not normally have access to. For sales through Corrugated Sky distribution, authors earn between 10% & 25% of listed retail price. For independent author sales, authors keep 100% of sales.
Production-related costs depend on various factors, including specifications of each book (i.e. hard case versus paperback, page count, trim size, number of physical copies via offset printing or digital printing, eBook, etc.).
Each book is different. We will evaluate each book and follow up with a customized publishing proposal.
Corrugated Sky is a full service independent publishing company that provides services in the areas of book production, book marketing, and book distribution.
Each author retains 100% of the intellectual property rights associated with their book, including any modifications, additions, images, and designs created by Corrugated Sky. At every stage during the book production process, an author has the opportunity to review and approve their work.
Corrugated Sky titles appear at the leading online and physical bookstores, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, independent bookstores, warehouse clubs, airport shops, grocery stores, collegiate bookstores, independent and chain gift stores, hospitals, museums, and more. We work with leading distributors and wholesalers that give our titles national coverage, including Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Partners Book Distributing, ReaderLink, and more.
Many factors regulate how books show up on retailers shelves, and we cannot guarantee that your book will be one of them, but we have the channels and relationships in place to maximize each title’s distribution opportunities.
Generally, our books hit the market between four and six months after first contact, which is at least a year sooner than traditionally published titles.
The creative process is fluid and there are many variables that impact production timelines.
