I have to sell 100 copies of my book pre order before it goes to print but its proving harder than I thought... any suggestions???
Exactly...since from her bio I assume she's sold in print before. It seems she has opted for self publishing (risky at best) her latest romance.
I have self-pubbed books. There is no risk beyond your outlay for cover art and formatting help, editing, etc. Not through legitimate channels--and there is certainly NO outlay for legitimate legacy publishing.
That's why I'm wondering who is requiring anything from her. I don't have the details but my first instinct is someone is trying to rip her off.
In this case it sounds like a risk. Self publishing means more work as well as the responsiblilty if the book succeeds or fails. As a self published author you understand this, but many don't.
In this article she should pay close attention to the buisness side of writing which has always baffled me.
I read the article and found it interesting. However I wont have to do any of those things as The Publishing company are taking care of all of that including editing. I understand it is not a traditional way of publishing but its def no self published.
Hi - for a start I contacted a publishing company and they offered me a publishing deal sort of! If I sell 100 books on pre order they publish my book for free no outlay on my Part! Then from there I get 30% for the first 1000 sold and 50% thereafter.
It is my responsibility to sell the first 100 - which will obviously go towards the cost of publishing the book. After the 100 sell they will promote my book through Amazon.com, barnes and noble and traditional book shops.
So, are you saying the publisher/printer is getting 100% of the first 100 books, 70% of the next 1000 and 50% thereafter? You can do better. What's the name of this company, if I may ask? I can name at least 3 companies that will give you 30% of the first 100 and if you sell 1000 books you'll get your 50%. If you have to do the work of preselling anyway, why not just use that money to pay for the printing and keep 30%?
Yes I suppose its to cover costs! SBPRA is the name of the company they are based in America! Ive sold 27 so far and have 6 months to make it 100. I didnt really want to self publish and was trying to get published traditionally but when I got this offer it just seemed so easy to let them do all the work
