What Others Have Asked
Before Applying to Be Published
(For Solo Book Authors Only)
Q: Do I really get to keep 100% royalties to my book?
A: Yes! When you publish with us, you keep ALL of your book's earnings forever.
Q: Do I get to keep the copyright to my book?
A: Yes! When you publish with us, you keep your book's full copyright.
Q: Do you offer wholesale discounts when I order my books?
A: Yes! Your paperback books will cost you approximately $3.00–$4.50 each when you order at wholesale. You may then sell your paperback copies at any pricepoint you wish. Many of our authors make the majority of their profits this way.
Q: What types of books do you publish?
A: We publish only non-fiction books. (No adult coloring books, children's books, cookbooks, or fiction.)
Q: How long will it take to publish my book?
A: It takes approximately 3 months to produce your book once we have your final manuscript, plus 1 month for you to order your wholesale books. If you choose us to help launch your book, we will coordinate with you to schedule it, which may take place anytime after the initial 4 months.
Q: Do you offer support for authors during the publishing process?
A: Yes! We will provide you with access to our library of writers' training videos which can help polish your manuscript. We additionally provide email support for general inquiries.
Q: Do you promote or develop your authors?
A: Yes! We will spotlight your success along the publishing journey, interview you to promote your book, as well as coordinate your book's launch efforts in tandem with you. We provide all the education you need to rank your book on Amazon as well.
Q: What type of publisher are you?
A: We are an Independent/Hybrid publisher. Unlike traditional publishers, we allow our authors to retain full control of their work. You keep your copyright. You keep 100% of your book's royalties. All of your book's financial earnings go directly to you. When you work with us, you are paying for our publishing service to produce, publish and/or help you rank your book.
Q: Why should I pay for publishing?
A: Because if you don't, you may lose ownership of your book and most of its royalties. Traditional publishers who pay an advance to publish a book may seem glamorous, but they come with a hefty price—they will own your book's copyright and a majority percentage of your book's earning power (royalties) forever. Your book becomes their asset, and you get a small cut (usually $1 per book sale). On the other hand, when you invest with us, you are paying not only for book production but for the opportunity to make better money with your book (100% royalties, large wholesale discount prices).
Q: Aren't publishers supposed to pay me an advance to publish my book?
A: Traditional publishers may give you an advance for your book (usually between $1,000–$5,000), however, you are required to pay the advance back through your book's royalties before you will start to see any royalties come in (usually $1 per book). If you don't make up the difference in the advance through book royalties, then the traditional publisher will take that remaining amount out of your next book they produce for you or they will not hire you back for another book.
Q: Why don't more authors choose traditional publishers?
A: To make more money and to be in control of their work. Competition is fierce with traditional publishing, demanding considerable mastery of the politics of understanding the industry and crafting a book (which many authors don't have). The once-coveted and unparalleled distribution systems that traditional publishers have controlled for decades have since been dwarfed by the advent of the Internet. The trending movement for savvy authors is to publish with an independent or hybrid publisher or even self-publish their book so that they can retain their full copyright and full royalties forever while building an online following and platform to increase their book's earning power.
Q: If I share my manuscript with you to be considered for publishing, does that waive any of my rights or copyright?
A: Absolutely not. We treat your manuscript with complete confidentiality. We only read and evaluate your manuscript to discuss the possibility of working with you.
