Who are you?

We recommend checking the “About Us” page but the TL;DR: we’re a creative dynamic duo passionate about putting art into the world. We believe that creators shouldn’t have to give up on their dreams of holding their own books in their hands because of the frustrations of self-publishing.

What services do you provide?

Our current focus is on getting authors through the self-publishing process.

Need advice on which self-publishing service to use? We can answer that.
Need help formatting a manuscript or creating a book cover? We’ve got you.
Proofreading? Editing? Illustration? Yep. Yep. Yep.
Need a shoulder to cry on because the process is so damned confusing? Maybe when we get to know you better.

What services do you NOT provide?

The main service we do not provide is the distribution and marketing of your books under the Vulgar Scullery Maid Publishing umbrella – the stuff that comes after you hit “Print.” While we hope to expand into this down the road, we’re not going to jump straight into the deep end!

How much does this all cost?

We provide a quote and service description on a case-by-case basis. Being completely transparent, we want to provide services that creators can actually afford but we also need to buy groceries. We love what we do and will try to work within your allotted budget!

How do we get in touch?

You can get in touch with us by leveraging the form on our Contact page. We will make every effort to respond to your requests within 48-72 hours unless holidays or vacation gets in the way.

What should I expect working with you?

We are detail-oriented and hard working. We pride ourselves on being responsive, honest, and encouraging. We want to help your book be the best it can be. You can expect truthful feedback and timely responses. We are not a “vanity press.” We are consultants.

The Shop

Can you explain the shipping costs in your shop?

There are lots of options we could have employed here but there’s one reality: shipping gets paid somewhere. The general consensus is that you should build shipping costs into your product pricing in order to offer free shipping. So, we take this approach for art prints, stickers, and other things where we have that level of control.

For our books, though, these have a fixed list price often contained in the barcode. As a result, shipping costs are additional. We keep these to a minimum and will occasionally try to offer discounts to offset this cost.

What is your return policy?

Return policies will vary slightly by fulfillment vendor and product but for most there is a 30 day return policy. See more here.

In-Person Purchases

I bought from you in person and would like more. Are the items in your shop the same as what I bought in person?

Apparel: Yes
Books: Yes
Stickers: Yes
Sticker Sheets: No
Art Prints: Yes

We generally do not sell sticker sheets in person but offer these online through our third party fulfillment provider. We may eventually change how this works so just keep an eye on the product description which will state if the product is made on demand or shipped directly from us.

If you’re looking for something specific, feel free to reach out and we can point you in the right direction.
