Meet our publicity and design experts.

The publishing experts are vendors and companies recommended by Köehler Books for authors to consider hiring to promote, market and publicize their work. They have worked directly with some of our authors, earning those authors’ trust and ours. The services they provide are optional for any author and are not offered directly by Köehler Books. The author is responsible for carefully making up their own mind, as well as any business arrangements between the author and the expert, including contracts and payments.
