OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH YOU
Royalty/Subsidy Press...Though we are a royalty/subsidy press, I prefer to call it a partnership. As a royalty/subsidy press, the author only pays the up-front costs for publishing the book. The price in the contract includes the editing, and pagination of the book and the design of the cover. The author has a say in every step of the process. Depending on how clean the manuscript is this process can last 30 days up to six months. Your only expense after the pre-press process is the books you purchase for your personal sales. We recommend 100 or more books to begin with. Our continuing partnership includes getting your book and the digital version of your book placed on Amazon.com, the largest bookseller in the world and listed at Ingram, the largest distributor in the world.
Investment...Most authors are able to recoup their investment in the publishing process after the sale of 250 books.
Royalties...Our authors receive a 20% royalty on the books sold through the marketplace. We are giving a 40% royalty on the sale of digital books.
Print on Demand... Print on demand gives you the ability to cost effectively print one book at a time, but it's the vertical integration of printing and distribution that makes it a viable model. Currently, the best option for authors wanting print on demand is 21st Century Press. We can print a minimum of 1 to 100 books up to 500 print on demand, and after that it is best to print traditional. Your book will be placed on Amazon.com and will be made available to Ingram Distributors. With Ingram, someone can walk into Barnes and Noble and order the book, or, for that matter, any bookstore in the country that orders from Ingram.
We are here to serve you: For over 16 years we have been publishing books for authors; some first time and some veteran authors. Wherever you are as an author, we are sure you will find a home with us. Our publishing group currently has three imprints, 21st Century Press, 21c Publishers, and Sonship Press.
21st Century Press: We currently are accepting scholarly works, Christian living, personal growth, finances, leadership, prophecy, fiction, devotional, critical church issues, commentaries, under 21st Century Press.
21c Publishers: is an imprint for health related books.
Sonship Books: is a children and youth publishing house.
