e are often confused as being a subsidiary publisher or vanity publisher - which we are neither. We actually don't fit any publishing model so we created our own and called it "Partnership Publishing" We don't buy the authors manuscript therefore we don't own any of the rights to the authors work. Authors keep their copyright, subsidiary rights, derivative rights (film rights), etc. There is no contact - just a business agreement so that each party agrees on fees and terms. We charge our authors up-front to produce their publication. There are no hidden fees. We custom design each publication and the author is kept fully informed of every stage. We then digitally distribute the book in over 30,000 wholesalers and distributors in 100 countries worldwide so that your book digitally available (can be ordered in) worldwide.
YOU DON'T PAY US ANY ROYALTIES
You don't pay us any royalties at all. All you pay is the cost for us to setup your publication and then fulfill your orders. We handle sales, credit card processing, affiliates, distribution, shipping, returns, customers service, help them sell and distribute the book and we fulfill all the orders. We charge a fee to process your orders and this fee is "built in" to the book cost. You pay us noting - we subtract costs from profit and then send you the remainder as a PayPal™ payment.
Although your work is advertised as being published by Life Skills Australia since we distribute your book, supply your ISBN, barcode, etc, in a way you are self-publishing your book. We're just helping you to do that and "get your book out there".
WHY WOULD YOU PAY US TO SELF-PUBLISH? Self publishing is a mine-field of skill sets and technical wizardry that I don't think any "normal person" should attempt. We're "not normal" and love the geeky arty stuff. We have a broad range of skills and decades of experience, yet it takes us about 50-60 hours to transform a Word document into a professional looking printed work! Click here to see what we do.
WHAT'S THE CATCH? The catch is that you have to do the much of the selling work. We'll help you and we do have our own sales and marketing channels. However, the Internet now makes it possible for you to market and sell your book to a massive worldwide audience. That's why we set up the distribution network, so when that happens your book is available worldwide.
In fact, we give the "loins share" of book profit to whoever is doing most of the selling work, whether that's you, us, a wholesale distributor (Amazon, Borders Books, Baker and Taylor, etc) or an affiliate.
