The Shakespeare Plan


Young Authors'



 The Young Authors' Publishing Program is designed to take a teen's or child's written words and turn them into a physical book with cover art and the whole nine yards. What better motivation for kids to write than to see their words turned into an actual book that can be purchased by grandparents and friends?

 Turn the work of your heart

into a work of art

to be shared with your family and friends.

 Until recently, having a book published was a dream for all but a select few writers who managed to navigate the tricky waters of traditional publishing houses, and books published by children and teens were completely nonexistent. All that has changed with the onslaught of print-on-demand, vanity, and hybrid publishers. While we promise not be part of the shark pool, we readily admit to being part of the print-on-demand pod.

 Our goal is for kids (and we mean to include teens in this broad category) to be encouraged to keep expressing themselves through the written word. We want to make the dream of publishing a book attainable for every teen/child author.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
