What is a Partnership/Royalty Press?

As an author who wants to be published, you are faced with a few options.

Partnership/Royalty Press…Though we are a royalty press, I prefer to call it a partnership. As a royalty press, our authors have two options for publishing their book. The cost and benefits of both are outlined below.

Option one: The author only pays for the books he or she purchases. On average, the minimum purchase for the author is 500 or more books. The contract includes the editing and pagination of the book and the design of the cover.

Option two: The author only pays for the editing of the book, the design of the book, the placing of the book with distributor, a marketing campaign, and, social media placement along with a micro website

Our continuing partnership includes getting your book and the digital version of your book placed on, the largest bookseller in the world and listed at Ingram, the largest distributor in the world. We also have a distributor that will call on Christian retailers across the country.

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.

Investment…Most authors are able to recoup their investment in the publishing process after the sale of 250 books.
