Custom Books & eBooks

Custom books and eBooks published by LeadingEdge Press featuring custom cover, fonts, interior layout, dimensions, and/or page counts.

Creating custom printed promotional books and eBooks is a tremendous way to generate leads and build thought leadership at the same time. Printed books attract lots of traffic at trade show booths. Sales people love to hand them out to customers and partners during sales calls and regional seminars. Our eBooks are frequently cited as the most successful call-to-action for email, social media, and pay-per-click campaigns.

LeadingEdge’s award-winning custom books and eBooks are a refreshing, cost-effective alternative to national brands. They’re basically just like our Definitive Guides, but with a custom cover to promote your own company’s branding. And you have complete control over the print size, page count, and content.

LeadingEdge’s custom books and eBooks are typically created in about 4-5 months. They’re equally as professional and attractive as their national brand counterparts. In some instances, our books are even nicer as we print on brighter, higher-quality paper. But there are several other reasons why technology vendors are choosing LeadingEdge’s custom books and eBooks over national brands.

Unsurpassed Subject Matter Expertise

Some national brands contract with authors who are inexperienced in the IT industry segment that is the focus of the book. By the time you edit their manuscript drafts, you could have authored the book yourself! LeadingEdge is different. We only provide authors who have extensive technical subject matter expertise in your IT industry segment. Our authors average 15-20 years of experience.

Get More, Pay Less

Some national brands charge an arm and a leg for their 1-3 year eBook licenses. Some force you to host your eBook on their website and redirect traffic to their site for downloads. LeadingEdge is different. Our eBook licenses are a fraction of the cost, and our perpetual eBook licenses never expire. And you have the freedom to host your eBook on your website or any website you please.

Optional Self-Authoring

Approximately one in five LeadingEdge custom book and eBook customers author their manuscript in-house. In this instance, LeadingEdge provides a “Managing Consultant” to work with the customer to organize their manuscript, provide manuscript templates, and interface with our talented editor and graphic designer behind the scenes. We want to make the overall process as seamless as possible, whether you author the manuscript yourself or work with an experienced LeadingEdge author or co-authors.
