QUALITY BOOKS WITHOUT THE EXPENSE
The Unhappy Little Dragon by
Where will my book(s) be sold?
Your book(s) will be sold online at places such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders, and many more.
Will my book(s) be sold in actual book stores?
Most likely not, although it is possible, especially if you take your books to smaller book stores and work something out with them. It is possible to request your local Barnes and Noble to order a few copies of your book so that it is available onsite. They may tell you no because once they order it, they must pay for it. Since many print on demand books are not returnable, they will have to eat the cost if it doesn't sell. Depending on whom you ask at the book store, they may order a few copies of your book anyway. It doesn't hurt to ask.
How much do I sell my books for?
You choose your own price.
Can I publish with another company too?
Yes, you retain the rights to your book. We do not require an exclusive contract.
How do I get paid?
Every quarter you will be sent a check for the profits from your previous three months of online sales.
Do you offer marketing services like press releases?
We try to keep the cost as low as possible so we do not offer press releases, especially since they have proven to be very ineffective considering their cost. Save your money on press releases and use it to buy bookmarks and post cards that you can distribute yourself. In the end, you must market your own book if you want results. We do offer bookmarks, post cards, and posters at an affordable price.
How can I trust you?
This is our sixth year in business so the BBB may not have any record of us yet. That should at least tell you we have had no complaints. You can also check our "Testimonial" section on the homepage to read what some of our authors think about their experience with ARPG. If there is a concern of whether we are a legitimate business or not, you can check the "Our Books" section and then look those titles up at Amazon.com or Barnesandnoble.com and look up the publisher's name.
Why should I choose you over another print on demand publisher?
Our prices are the lowest in the industry. We use the largest print on demand printing company in the country so we can offer the same variety of books as the biggest print on demand publishers out there. Because we are a smaller company, we can offer extra attention to our authors. Also, our books get published up to three times faster than the competition.
How long will it take to publish my book?
It only takes us 2-3 weeks once we receive your manuscript. That's how soon the author can order copies. Once it's published, it can take up to six weeks before it's available online; however, it is usually much faster.
What does my $199 pay for?
It pays for the formatting of your digital manuscript, an ISBN number, your first year's digital storage fee, a formatted cover.....pretty much everything you need to get your book published except for editing.
Do you offer editing?
Yes, for $.01 per word. Editing includes checking grammar, paragraphing, and spelling.
