Book Packaging You Say?
That’s right, we’re a book publishing / packaging company. That means we handle the book publishing process from beginning to end. We take great story ideas and collaborate with talented writers to bring them to life.
These story ideas and concepts are created by our in-house team, which are then fleshed out into detailed character profiles and outlines (30-40 pages).
We then work closely with one of our writers to bring these outlines to life. The focus throughout is on quality, and the writer works closely with an editor to ensure the reader will be blown away by both the story and the prose.
Depending on the word count, the process from idea creation to finished product is 2-4 months.
Then the book enters the marketing phase where the cover and blurb are optimized to sell, and various advertisements are set up to promote the book. Every book is made with the target of hitting the bestseller list.

It’s always a pleasure writing on projects for Relay Publishing. I love the Teamwork application which makes finding out all the pertinent facts and communicating with team members so easy and efficient.

“So far my time working for Relay has been great. The projects are fun, and it’s an interesting new way to look at constructing a book. I’m learning a lot!”Jeff
I’ve worked with Relay for more than four years and in that time, I’ve been increasingly impressed with the growth of the company and the projects completed. As a 20+ year veteran of the publishing industry, watching Relay’s transition from novice to expert has been nothing short of phenomenal and it’s been my pleasure to help be a part of the growth.Leslie
I’m liking the practice writing in a different mode for Relay and it really seems like you guys are interested in helping people try new things. Overall very happy! It’s also a weight off my mind with how volatile publishing can be in general.Anna
I want to tell you that you’ve got a good thing going (which I’m sure you already know). I came to Relay Publishing after editing for several difficult authors in a row, and I had almost forgotten how it felt to work together to make a stronger book. But Relay Publishing has reminded me why I have so enjoyed editing fiction.Editor
