Publish with Wordbound

Committed to finding your most direct path to book publishing success, Wordbound offers a hybrid publishing solution:  Publisher for hire, and equal partner in sales and distribution. 

Book publishing doesn’t need to be frustrating or confusing, and one size does not fit all.  

With author-partnered publishing, you pay a flat (quoted) rate for your production cost.  You have direct input into the production and design process. Publication, sales, distribution and marketing follow a more traditional arrangement, except Wordbound offers a 50:50 royalty on all net sales.


Flat Fee production

Full production services start at $2500. Installment plans available.

Editing

We collaborate on two rounds of text editing. Our goal is to help clarify your voice.

Typesetting

Interior typesetting and design are custom for your work, presented for your approval.

Design

Your unique cover design is presented in consultation on draft and final design reviews.

Market Postioning

Work with us to find the best marketing approach, whether with an existing fan base, or without.

Sales, Distribution, and Marketing Management

50:50 net sales royalty on print, ebook, and audio products.

Distribution

For most titles, distribution is a combination of Ingram and Amazon extended distribution, for print, ebook, and audio products.

Sales Management

Marketing is where an individualized plan pays off, promoted through online advertisement, advance reading copies, and PR approaches.
