We’re no longer accepting submissions for 2021. We will announce if and when the program is reopened by the 4th quarter of 2021.
Publisher Lite Program:
We call it Publisher-Lite because we’ve pared back the most wasteful segments of publishing expense in favor of a quality product. It allows authors without much money to produce a quality product.
We’ll pay for the following:
|*||Professional custom book covers for ebook, paperback, and hardback distributions|
|*||Professional structural and copy editing|
|*||Professional book interior formatting for print|
|*||One round of paid literary reviews|
|*||Ongoing participation in the Amazon KDP platform|
|*||Print distribution within Amazon as well as separate world-wide availability through IngramSpark|
|*||Ongoing hosting of product pages within our catalog, with links to your author site|
|*||A small advance payment against future royalties, plus a 30% split of downstream profits once the contract expense reimbursement threshold is reached|
|*||One free author’s copy in each format (ebook, paperback, hardback if applicable)|
|*||Reduced cost print copies for author’s promotional activities|
We don’t pay for:
|*||Advertising or promotion|
|*||Book signings or travel|
|*||Book fairs and conventions|
If this is something you might be interested in, complete the contact form referenced here. Please note you should provide a good well-written synopsis of your book on the form, because we will be using it to decide if we want to know more. Assuming we do, we’ll hold a telephone interview. If there is compatibility on both sides, we’ll then enter into contract negotiations.
