Partnership model: The author contributes to the cost of services and receives 50% royalties. If the author buys copies at a discounted price, they may sell these and keep 100%. We contribute our time and expertise to create the best work possible, both in terms of content and graphic presentation, publishing and promotion. Occasionally, on acceptance of a manuscript, we provide free services if the work appears to have unique sales potential.
