What is the cost of an ISBN?
The PUBLISHER™ offers two options to authors. Which option author selects will be determined by his or her goals for book. The PUBLISHER™ does NOT control cost of ISBNs. An agency charges The PUBLISHER™ for ISBNs per book, per title, per format etc. Each book is assigned a unique number that cannot be used for any other book. Should a book be printed hard bound, softbound and ebook, each requires its own ISBN.
Author has two options to select from:
First is FREE ISBN but the printer will be listed in cataloging as publisher. Some resellers will not carry book with this option limiting potential sell possibilities. However, should author want book published merely for gift giving or premiums to family, friends and colleagues the FREE ISBN is all you need.
Second is PAID ISBN that list The PUBLISHER™ in ALL Books-
Do I need to copyright my book?
With FREE publishing The PUBLISHER™ does NOT include copyright services. Any book published an available to the public should be registered with the copyright office. It is NOT required but does give you some additional legal protections. The Copyright Office does charge a fee for registration and at least two books. There is a time limit after publishing to register with them. You can register yourself or have The PUBLISHER™ register, but The PUBLISHER™ will charge administration processing fee, in addition to cost of registration in, the two require book copies and shipping and handling.
How many FREE copies of book will author receive once published?
None. The PUBLISHER™ uses various book printers throughout the USA and does NOT control cost of book printing. The PUBLISHER™ does NOT require any author to buy copies either. Should any author want copies of their book. Author can order directly through publisher 30% to 40% off suggested retail pricing without book contract and 50% off with book contract. Plus, postage, handling and taxes where applicable. It is important to note that there is a low minimum book order. Each book printer has different cost and The PUBLISHER™ will select the lowest pricing for author.
Will The Publisher give me a book contract?
The PUBLISHER™ is likely to give author a book contract. But this does not translate or guarantee any number of book sells or any earned royalties.
What royalty percentage do I receive with book contract?
Example has been over simplified to simplicity.
Authors under book contract will see any profits from sells divided 50% author, 50% publisher.
Example: Book retails for $20 and profit is $8, Royalty would be divided Author $4/Publisher Royalty $4.
Anyone, offered a book contract must return it to publisher whether signed or not within the scheduled time frame. Author may not maintain any copies of book contract except for the copy provided by The PUBLISHER™ after signing. Author should keep contract with other important documents. When contract terminates for any reason whatsoever AUTHOR must return said contract to The PUBLISHER™.
Author MUST complete ALL information requested when signing. A clear photo (preferably colored) government issued photo ID, driver’s license, or green card is required. It will be imbedded to the book contract. Book contract will NOT be VALID until The PUBLISHER™ has signed, dated and AUTHOR has finalized copy in hand.
Why is the royalty percentage split fifty fifty?
Most authors are not looking to make a career or sells from their books. Self-
their books because author is paying up front for all cost of publishing. Traditional published authors generally receive percentages of 10% to maybe 15% that usually doesn’t start until publisher recoups investment. Established authors with a good track record may see slightly higher percentages. The Publisher™ is giving equal opportunity to all authors whom may not have a chance to see their work published any other way. Should author want to try and earn money from book sells it is only fitting Author and PUBLISHER share returns equally. After all, The PUBLISHER™ has done all the work to see the book published. This allows The PUBLISHER™ to make future offers to other authors.
