We’re changing publishing – and putting the crowd in control.

We ensure quality editing, cover design, marketing strategy, and distribution at no cost to the author, thanks to the crowdfunding model, which helps you learn from the promotional side.

Crowdfunding: a financial model to make your book a reality

Crowdfunding is a collective financial system in which a group of people financially supports a book project on its road to becoming a reality. In Isabella Media’s case, we only work with book projects. Based on the financial support each reader gives, they can elect to receive as a reward, a paperback copy with their name mentioned on the acknowledgment page and different services the author offers, always related to the book currently being published. This helps to evangelize the reader to your cause and turn them into a “Super Fan”.
