Publication and Royalties F.A.Q


Please review the section of our website dedicated to discussing this- there you will find three different ways in which we work with authors to get their work published.
No.  We would never ask you to pay for the privilege of publishing your work.  As a rule, you should be wary of any company who requires you to pay for the publication of your manuscript or requires you to purchase an expensive copy of a publication in order to reserve a spot in it.  

We take the cost of the publication up front and the better your book does, the more we both earn!
The short answer is- we work in a profit share method, no advances are given and in exchange the authors are awarded a larger percent of the total profit on the book.  

Here is a closer look of how it might* break down in a few different scenarios

  • Paperback book: Royalties on retail of 10% paid to author until earning of $400 for publisher is reached, shifting to a 55% royalty after that point
  • Hardback book: Royalties on retail of 10% paid to author until the earning of $450 for publisher is reached, shifting to a 55% royalty after that point
  • Full color books: Royalties on retail of 10% paid to author until the earning of $500 for publisher is reached, shifting to a 55% royalty after that point
*this is for example only, and while it demonstrates the guidelines we attempt to operate by, it is not representative of every situation or scenario
Authors do keep the copy rights to their materials- ie: poems, short stories, manuscripts, artwork...
As a publishing company we own the ISBN of the book as well as the rights to the book itself.  If you (as the author) choose to publish elsewhere, you may take your words but not the book as a whole or the ISBN that belongs to it.
In the case of submitted manuscripts- we expect that books will come to us completed and (mostly) ready for publication.  If you are in need of editing services we can provide them, such service would be negotiated into your contract.

For our invitation only anthologies, we are the editors and will be listed as such on the cover.
