We will, wherever possible, promote via our extensive web base (part of Backs epub) your work and profile. Your book will, in addition to Amazon worlwide, be placed on Bookopedia new releases and e books pages.If you have a website, we can also set up a reciprocal link.This arrangement will remain, on the strict understanding that your titles are published solely by Bookopedia.
What will I earn?
Obviously, this is dependent upon actual book sales. The one great advantage of developing your book format in such an inexpensive way is the speed of completion. However, this does come at a cost - unlike the kindle e book royalties, the Amazon platform for the printed book is very complex - we will quote approx earning once we know your exact book details.
For this reason, we recommend you publish an e book alongside your traditional printed work.
What are the financial terms of the agreement ?
Our agency fees are 15% of nett royalties payable + 5% a/c management fees. these are extremely compettive fees, when compared with traditional publishing (15% of book retail and publishers percentage).
Do you promote my work
We are in the unusual position of being both publisher and agent for your work. there is no cost to you for any in-house or connected promotion, although publicity and promotion is not included as part of your agreement. The emphasis for all external promotion is on you. You cannot reasonably expect a publicity campaign at no cost - so the more effort you can put in to pushing your book, the greater the rewards.
How to present your work
Manuscripts must be presented in an electronic format, preferably a word document , A4 and double spaced, if this is a problem we will accept PDF.
