The world of publishing has done a 180 in just the past few years. More than ever, the legacy publishing route is difficult to break into for the vast majority of authors. Self-publishing is being adopted by many authors at their cost.

Laskin is in the middle field helping selected authors bring their works to the market. If you have a professional manuscript to be published and are willing to work on your social media platform (web, blog, Facebook, etc.), we can help you.
