Publishing & Author Services
Much more than just books…
Authors, Audios, Books and Courses to help you to get more of what you want out of life...
Our primary aim is to enable your work to become published, without the cost and disappointment that vanity publishing can produce . To that end, we believe that sanity should stand before vanity, by concentrating upon generating realistic opportunities for your work to become published AND to actually sell!
The world of publishing has changed a great deal over the last ten years, and so has vanity publishing. You will already know that vanity publishing works on the simple principle of authors paying a vanity publisher to publish their work, and whilst there is a place for it, it has, until recent times, been the only other option for first time authors.
Such an agreement did suit some authors for a number of different reasons; including those who were unable to become published through the more traditional publishing route, or whose work was never intended for sale to mass markets, as in the case of very special, small demand books.
Whilst vanity publishing may still suit some authors, it is still the default publishing method for vast numbers of first time authors who simply don’t know otherwise. For many of them, their lack of knowledge, inexperience or know-how about the process of publishing, leaves them prey to a process that can be more about making money from them than actually representing them fairly and responsibly in order to actually sell their work.
Whilst there are some reputable vanity publishers out there, many are not, and authors often only find out the difference months after they have signed a very one sided contract. Many vanity publishers tie authors into lengthy contracts, pay minimal royalties on net profits, and often fail to generate even the most modest level of sales, whilst continuing to charge unnecessary annual fees and hindering the author from going elsewhere. Even some of the most reputable vanity publishers charge authors amounts that will never be returned through meagre royalties.
So what is the solution? Our advice is always to allow sanity to rule over vanity, which means considering the options very carefully. If you have the time and the inclination, you could even learn everything you need to know to publish and promote your own book. If that is your option of choice, we will be happy to show you how to achieve that as well.
If self-publishing your book is not the right option for you, then we can help you to achieve the same goal for a whole lot less, and with our A’ La Carte system, you can select what you need, when you need it, retaining 100% ownership of your own work.
