How Do I Get My Book Published?

 

The first stage would be for us to send it to one of our editors for a full evaluation report. This process takes around 2-3 weeks and the report will detail the strengths and weaknesses of your manuscript and suggestions for any re-writing required. We will then add our personal recommendation regarding the next steps.

The cost of the report is £200-£250 inc. VAT.

Following a successful evaluation we would then recommend one of the following publishing packages:

1. Gold - Your book will be fully edited, a cover designed, then published and marketed to bookstores globally. You agree to purchase a minimum number of 400 books and we pay you a 15% royalty based on our net receipts from bookshop and online sales. This option also includes an eBook, which is uploaded to the Kindle platform. The price you pay is dependent upon the number of words in the book but is normally around 40-50% of the RRP.

2. Silver - Your book will be fully edited, a cover designed, then published and marketed to bookstores globally. There is a minimum order of only 20 copies but you pay a fee depending on the length of the book. We pay you a 15% royalty based on our net receipts from bookshop and online sales. This option also includes an eBook, which is uploaded to the Kindle platform. The price you pay for additional copies will be 40-50% of the RRP.

3.  Bronze - Your book will be fully edited, a cover designed, and a minimum of 50 copies printed and sold to you for your own use plus an eBook file. This self-publishing option will include a one hour consultation to discuss your publishing options. The final cost will be determined by the number of words in your manuscript and how many copies you wish to purchase.

If you would like to proceed with an evaluation report then please email your manuscript to malcolm@malcolmdown.co.uk and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.

Wishing you every success on your publishing journey!
