Interview with Diamond Tip Publishing, LLC

How do you approach cover design?
We take into consideration the author's ideas and go with it. We have amazing design specialists as well as artists who create a unique cover our authors are proud to display.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Diamond Tip Publishing has just released several wonderful new books by C.L. Colletto, Dylan Adams, Marie King, DT Jones, Kathryn Lusty, and Dr. C.A. Kes.
Who are your eBook publishers?
We love Smashwords for their unique quality and diversified partners, but we also use Amazon, Nook, as well as many other websites.
What is the greatest joy you receive from publishing?
I love to see the face of the author when they hold their books for the first time. It's heartwarming to know their long journey has come so far.
How do perspective authors get their books published with you?
We accept all manuscripts for submission, except those with explicit rape or incest, no bomb or drug recipes and no racism. Anyone can submit their book to us via our webpage at, or by emailing them directly to us at
How can you help new authors?
We help authors, new or experienced, with a unique editing process that consists of 4 editors per submission. We then help the author polish their manuscript until it's ready for publication. We print and distribute their books across the web in both eBook format as well as physical books (for those of us who love to hold a real book!).
How much does it cost to publish with your company?
We do not charge for our services, unless the author wants to go it alone. Then we will charge based on the length and style of the book, and what the author wants done. For example, if the author wants us to edit and create a book cover, we will charge for those services. Otherwise we work off of commission for all books sold, regardless if it's one copy or a million.
Do you remember the first story you ever published?
Our first author was, and still is, DT Jones. She is an amazing Erotic/Romance author who spices things up with a bit of mystery and murder. She's an incredible woman who has written twelve books with Diamond Tip Publishing to date, and we're looking forward to many more to come.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your desire to publish?
We are based in Utah, but publish for any author around the globe. We got into publishing because of a need for authors who have been rejected by the "Big Boys" of publishing. They needed someone to help them overcome their challenges of grammar and editing, and just wanted a publisher to back them up. We specialize in the frustrated author who needs help and wants to see their hard work become a masterpiece they can proudly displace. We also accept the seasoned author who just doesn't want to publish on their own anymore.
When did you first start publishing?
Diamond Tip Publishing become fully operational in September of 2013. We started out with 3 published authors and now represent twelve in just 1 year. We are going strong and are always looking for more writers who want to be published.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has been a wonderful addition to our eBook publishing family. We love their style and their ability to work with all authors.
