... now Natural-Earth Publishing makes it EASY and AFFORDABLE
THANK YOU for inquiring about publishing
your book. Please allow me to give you a brief explanation of what
is involved in this process- a process that may save you thousands
Move beyond Rejection
Very few new authors -- and especially those with books for which
there is a limited, niche or untested market -- will be able to
get a contract from a conventional publishing house. Conventional
publishers rarely take risks on an unproven author, no matter how
'good' the work is. Many publishers do not accept unsolicited manuscripts,
and those who do reject thousands for every manuscript they accept.
Clearly this is not a solution for most aspiring authors.
There has to be a Better Way
Until recently, the determined author was faced with only a few
* do-it-yourself (imagine the complications of ISBNs, copyright,
trade deposits, barcodes, editing, layout, designing a cover, tendering
the printing, paying for a press run, layout, artwork, editing etc.,
* use a "vanity publisher" and pay $10,000 to $20,000
or more, or...
* give up.
At last a breakthrough process lets you have your book
published fast and affordably!
name is Alex Telman. I developed Natural-Earth Publishing because
I got tired of printing companies insisting on a minimum 1,000
books printed before they took me seriously as a self-publisher.
So I developed a network of industry professionals who were willing
to create high quality small lot projects at a very reasonable price.
Now you can publish your book from as few as 25 COPIES.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS
Natural-Earth Publishing will look after all the artistic, administrative
and quality control tasks in the preparation and printing process.
Your total investment will be from as little as $525.00 AUD. Depending
on the service you require you will receive between 25 and 1000
books. If you need more than 1000 copies let us know and we will
forward you a special quote. If you need to re-order, let us know
and we will organize a re-print at a discounted price at any time.
All manuscripts are saved on disc.
Our normal size book is 64pp plus front and back cover. Experience
has shown that most text type books can be edited to that size.
Internal font is best at 7 or 8 for 57pp of text (the balance includes
contents, title page, dedication, copyright page). At 57pp you'd
fit 20,000 to 25,000 words comfortably. How long to print? If we
receive your MS (including cover) as a Word.doc with no editing
you'd receive the completed product within 4 weeks.
