And at this point, it`s actually the same equation I`d use for any other small press. Is it likely that the marketing effort the company puts into each book will generate enough revenue that is higher than what I would sell alone to make up for the percentage of profit I give? A few small print shops consistently place each post in the top 20k kindle, and most of their posts reach the top 5k – these numbers usually mean solid sales. Other small printing machines are scattershot, some books breaking the top 20k and others never sell more than a few copies. What I would be looking for is a publishing house with a very good record of excellent sales in its books. And now, in the world of e-books, we can really see in real time how a publishing house is doing. Thank you – I will provide you with an update when I have the proposal (and have it verified). I think distribution and sales would be too difficult, especially considering that I want to reach the school market, and I already know how they work, which is difficult for me to access (even if I was not really “self-publishing”, before I had the responsibility to place a book on how to place the policewoman in Australia in secondary and tertiary schools, and it wasn`t just hard work, but incredibly expensive in time and money Also, if someone can make this page for me at a reasonable price, I`d always prefer.) Dave, thank you for this very informative article. For me, it`s quite topical. I recently finished a book and sent it to a few agencies. The first answer I was given actually presented with a multifaceted scenario of decisions and options for action. Since the agency liked the book, but claimed that there were only a handful of “remarkable” publishers interested in the topic and genre I chose (but one in which I am an expert), he talked about the possibility of looking for a co-publication situation.
I had just started reading what they are and the services they offer, and I struggled to really find the line that separates these services from self-publishing/vanity press situations. In fact, they are distribution links. Either my full-time efforts or their reputation with bricks, mortars and other delivery routes. You have really helped to justify what I might find useful in my meetings with some of these companies and companies. As a TV writer/producer with a lot of credits produced, I always thought that checking a company`s past successes and failures was as important as checking mine. I think it`s the same here.
