Founded in 1997, Infinity Publishing's industry leading, author-originated book publishing model puts authors in control of the publishing process to carry out their vision for their books. The company's unique print on demand book publishing system was designed to support all authors with a story to tell, who have ever thought about writing a book, or who have been on an endless journey to find an agent or publisher.
Pioneer in author-originated book publishing, Infinity is also leading the way when it comes to going green by becoming the first company in the self-publishing category to make available to its authors a program of this nature!
Through the program, authors that publish with Infinity will be able to plant 100 trees for the title they publish. These authors will also have the option to add a special "100 trees planted for this book" logo to their book's design, as a way to showcase their commitment to environmental sustainability.
