QUALITY BOOKS WITHOUT THE EXPENSE
Monk beanblossom and Tub Turnipseed by Julian Anderson Williams
For only $199 you can get a quality book self published! And you don't have to buy hundreds of books all at once because this is print on demand. You (or your fans) buy only the number of books you want printed, when you demand them.
Your self published book will also be distributed through Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and others, so it will be available online.
You can also create your own royalties, which will be sent to you quarterly, based on the price of your self published book that YOU decide. For example, if you self publish a 100-page paperback book and decide to sell it for a competitive price of $7.95, you will still make a $3.03 profit off of each book printed and sold.
Authors maintain all rights to their books. In addition, we do not require an exclusive contract so you can self publish elsewhere too, but you shouldn't want to because we handle all your self publishing needs.
Because we use a large printing company, we can offer the same self publishing services as the biggest print on demand publishing companies out there. We have several options for your self published book: small and large paperback, small and large hardcover, creme-colored paper or white, and colored pages or black and white.
Just send us your manuscript in Microsoft Word, and we'll custom format it for you. Provide an image for the cover, and we'll set it up for you as well. If you'd like an illustrator to design something for you, we can recommend one for you.
At ARPG you can self publish most genres of books, including children's books. You've come to the right place to meet your self publishing needs.
To prospective authors.
As a professional artist with around two hundred published works, I appreciate the value of personal input from a publisher. It’s an important ingredient in a writer-publisher relationship. Of course, we all know the word ‘personal’ can be found under “P” in the dictionary, but believe me, not too many self-publishers practice ‘personal’ attention.
God smiled on me the day I came across Eric Patterson of Avid Readers Publishing Group. I had been through so many formatting nightmares with my previous self-publisher. In fact I was about to call it quits. Breaking into the world of publishing novels is a far cry from my forty years in the art world. I guess I’ve been spoiled, having had a great N.Y. Agent who handled the licensing contracts from numerous art publishers. I took six years off from painting and switched to writing. I’d years of experience writing for two newspapers back in Australia, and thought I’d give the oil paints a rest.
So, if you’re reading this, you’re already off to a great start. You’ve short cut the painful elimination process, the process of sorting through the many self-publishing houses full of promises. Publishing houses that are more proficient at ‘nickel and dimeing’ a hopeful writer to death than they are in creating a smooth passage and committing to a ‘pre-agreed upon’ cost of production. They never do. I learned this when I contracted with a major publishing house – every problem that popped up with formatting issues kept ringing up the register, it was like a New York cab ride in traffic jam!
With each of my six novels, Eric Patterson has been in constant, consistent and supportive contact with me via email and phone. Eric personally handles the formatting as well as suggesting ways to improve the layout. He has worked far and beyond the hours of any sane person and I thank him a million fold for his dedication and priceless contribution in hours and insurmountable assistance. He won’t like me saying this, but he also refused to allow me to pay him any extra toward the unexpected amount of corrections that I dumped onto him time after time . . . after time.
As I mentioned, I have, in the past, worked with another “major” book publisher, and by comparison with ARPG, they were amateurs with absolutely ZERO personal contact. Eric Patterson is by far the best thing that has happened to my book publishing. I hate to admit it, but realistically, I would have absolutely thrown the towel in with the other self-publishers, they just don’t have it. They have a lot of my money, but they don’t have “it.”
Eric kept the vision alive and produced a top quality paperback - and he is LIGHTENING FFFFAST !!!!!!
Eric Patterson and Avid Readers Publishing Group has that rare “IT” quality. Thanks Eric. As I said many, many times since we began the first book . . . you are a saint, mate. I’m going to have you canonized. And the bookmarks are spectacular too!"
Anyone who reads this is welcome to email me. If you choose any other publisher, you should consider therapy before proceeding. Eric Patterson IS the man!!!!
