Palace Publishing Company ~ Publisher
This is Your Chance to Become a Published Author
Palace Publishing Company is proud to announce the publication five new compilations of members' works. There will be one anthology each for fiction, non-fiction, in memoriam, children's stories, and Gambaru...stories of inspiration and never giving up. We are very excited about these projects and are certain you will be too.
Palace Publishing's mission is to provide you, the aspiring author, with the tips, tools, and resources you will need to turn your ideas and dreams into published works.
It is because of our belief in you that we have decided to publish five more anthologies of your works. We believe it is important that you fulfill your dream of becoming a published author.
Best-Seller Campaign Included
Once published, Palace Publishing will do a best-seller campaign so that the participating members cannot only claim they are a published author, but a best-selling author as well.
We also intend to get this book into as many editors and publishers' hands as possible. With Jess' connections in the industry, this will give you an advantage over sending a manuscript to an editor or publisher in hopes you will be one of the lucky few chosen out of the massive pile of submissions.
Your participation in this project could be the one stepping-stone that gets you noticed, and perhaps obtain that elusive publishing deal every author dreams of. There are no guarantees.
The reason we are doing this is because we really do care about you getting published. And, I know for some of you, that would be an impossible dream unless you secured a publisher. The publishing world has been turned upside down lately, and for the majority, that is just not going to be an option...but you know me, I am going to tell you to keep trying...Gambaru!
To self-publish costs money. Depending upon which route you go, it could cost a lot of money.
When I self-published my book, using a book shepherd and a traditional printer, it cost me well over $10,000, and that was at the lower end of the spectrum. That is not a misprint. It costs money to self-publish. Even if you use a print on demand company, you have to dig deep.
So, we came up with an affordable solution for you. We are going to publish five more compilation books of members' works. Depending upon which level you sign up for, you will have between 1500 and 2500 words to tell your story. I understand that this is not the same as publishing your whole book, but it is a really good start.
I know what you are thinking... "How much is this going to cost me?"
We are very proud to say that we have kept the minimum investment down to only $147.
And, six very special members will get their names on the cover of the book and premiere positioning inside the book for only $597. I don't know about you, but I think that is very exciting!
We will be doing a best-seller campaign after the book is published, and it is possible for you to not only become a published author, but a best-selling author as well.
A best-seller campaign alone can cost anywhere from $2,500 to $25,000. And, even at the $2,500 level, you have to do the work yourself.
We will be doing all the work for you. Just decide which level is right for you, and submit your work by following the guidelines. That is all the work you have to do. We will take it from there.
You might wonder how we can offer this opportunity for such a low price. We have purposely charged the very minimum amount possible to make this book a reality. Truth is, I wish I could do this for free, but that is just impossible. The submission fees will help cover production, editing,
cover design, interior design, ISBN number, copyright, printing and more. It cost money to publish a book, and we are charging the absolute minimum so that everyone can participate.
We will take care of all of the details, you just work on getting your story down to the maximum word count, and send it to us. We will take care of the rest.
