One Of America's Most Spectacular Book Publishing Companies
FACT #1: Unique among all traditional
book publishing companies, PublishAmerica counts more than
50,000 authors. The past three years alone, 10,000 of them
asked us to also publish their next work. By any standard, this is an
amazingly high number of loyal return authors, unseen in the rest of the
book publishing company industry.
FACT #2: Each day, more than 100 authors
who are looking to find a book publishing company ask us to publish
their book. PublishAmerica specializes in books about, for, or by people
who confront a challenge in life, and who are determined to overcome it,
real or imagined, fiction or nonfiction. While we pride ourselves in
maintaining lower acceptance barriers than any other
traditional publisher, no book is published until it has passed scrutiny
on a variety of content issues. Our contract includes no author
fees, period. The essential process of producing and publishing a book and making it available to bookstores worldwide, all of which we provide, is absolutely free. We pay cash advances.
FACT #3: PublishAmerica authors appear
in the news media each day, in newspapers, magazines, radio or
TV. The authors of this book publishing company have been
interviewed, reviewed or introduced in literally thousands of newspapers
across the country, from the Washington Post to the Clackamas County
News, from the Kingwood Observer to the Los Angeles Times to Women's
World Magazine. They have made appearances on local TV, and on national
ABC, CNN, MSNBC and FOX TV. They also have been interviewed by radio
shows hosts such as Rush Limbaugh, Don Imus, Diane Rehm, and Oliver
FACT #4: PublishAmerica authors have
done thousands and thousands of book signings at bookstores, libraries,
and many, many other venues including an aircraft carrier.
Bookstores call or log on to order a PublishAmerica
title numerous times every day.
FACT #5:PublishAmerica is not
in any way a POD, vanity press, or subsidy publisher, and has
nothing in common with them. None of our authors are being
self-published. In the most commonly used context, POD indicates
"Publish On Demand", or vanity publishing. Vanity publishers charge for
publishing someone's book. PublishAmerica does not.
FACT #6: PublishAmerica is a
traditional, royalty paying publisher. We charge no fees for publishing
a book, ever. There's no catch, no hidden surprises. We pay small
advances to indicate our principle. The author is never, ever, under any
obligation to pull their wallet to make any purchase whatsoever.
We don't want their money. We want their book. All expenses
involved with acquiring, producing, manufacturing, and publishing a
book, and marketing it to the industry's wholesale and distribution
channels for full availability through all bookstores at home and abroad
are underwritten by PublishAmerica solely.
FACT #7: Today the entire publishing
industry uses the digital printing technology, aka
Print-On-Demand. It the printer to manufacture a book in any
quantity at a time, from one to one million. This is in contrast with
the offset technology that, by definition, must produce multiple copies
of a book at a time to justify the expense of running the press.
FACT #8: We put the author in
full control of the production time of their book. If an author
wants us to release his or her book fast, we can do that. Depending on
how efficiently they submit all necessary information and materials,
they may see their book go to the printer within as little as 4 weeks.
FACT #9:Our art department
designs all book covers. We take author provided suggestions
and ideas into serious consideration. We know our authors want quality,
and we produce quality. Our book covers are universally praised
throughout the industry.
FACT #10: PublishAmerica is only
interested in obtaining a book's publishing rights. We don't want any
other rights, unless an author requests that we carry them on his/her
behalf. Movie rights, audio rights, TV rights, merchandising
rights, the copyright, they all remain the author's. Our
contracts expire after ten years.
FACT #11: Electronic publishing rights
are part of every book's publishing rights. PublishAmerica has converted
thousands of e-books for Amazon's Kindle, Barnes and
Noble's Nook, and Google's e-book store.
FACT #12: PublishAmerica attends
trade shows all over the world, from New York to Jerusalem,
from London to Paris, from Calcutta to Tokyo to facilitate promotion to
targeted micro and macro audiences. Each year, roughly five thousand
PublishAmerica authors volunteer to advertise their book before, during
or after such trade shows at their own expense.
