How Free Publishing Works

With Light Switch Press, the free publisher, your book can be ready in as little as ten days!

The Free Publishing Process

Start by creating your free user profile with your basic information. Second, enter your book information, book description and upload your manuscript. Our design team gets to work with your free cover design, then they format your e-book for popular e-readers like Nook and Kindle. Once your e-book sales totals reach just 100 copies, your book will then be available in Print and placed in Expanded Distribution… for free! Download our Publishing Checklist and make sure you have all the necessary information to publish your book for free.


If you’re an author who can’t wait to have your printed book in-hand, upgrade to Expanded Distribution at any time, and your book will be available in both paperback and e-book, right away. Take advantage of our low print-on-demand prices. Sell your book yourself and keep 100% of the profit.

Submit Your Manuscript

The hardest part: letting your baby go! Don’t worry; even though we’re a free publisher, you own the rights to your book. Sit back, relax, and let our design team work their magic.
