Logo EDICONEX
Ediconex is a self-publishing support service for people over 50, from Catalonia and the Balearic Islands.

Ediconex wants to support the talent of large authors, maintaining minimum quality standards. Therefore, Ediconex reserves the right to admit or reject manuscripts for publication. Despite the fact that the book is self-published, we want the Ediconex name to be synonymous with quality. At Ediconex, the author feels accompanied throughout the desktop publishing process. The book is the exclusive property of the author, since Ediconex is a non-profit service.
