Diss, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 07, 2009 -- Podding is the new way forward for writers and authors looking to go in to print but who canât find a publisher.
âPoddingâ is teaming up with one of the new âprint on demandâ (POD) publishers, like Dragoncub (http://www.dragoncub.com/books/index.php) who will show you how to make money selling your books online.
Dragoncub can take a manuscript, edit and format the content quickly and efficiently and have your book ready to print and ship as the orders flow on. As an author, you will also have help marketing your book to reach the widest possible audience.
Podding makes financial sense for everyone in the publishing chain:
- Publishers save because print-on-demand removes overheads like advance royalties, the need for large print runs and storage that comes with traditional book publishing.
- Authors can keep a larger slice of the royalties and their rights to the content as a POD publisher only takes a percentage of the retail price to cover printing, marketing and distribution costs.
This does not mean every book submitted is published, but the POD business model allows the publisher to take more chances with books that may not stack up sales like the Harry Potter series, allowing more writers to reach readers.
Online book publishers also offer their authors a broad selling base, whether through the online Dragoncub (http://www.dragoncub.com/books/index.php) bookstore or online giants like Amazon. Publishers like Dragoncub can also access other distribution channels that can reach thousands of retailers like high street stores, libraries and other online merchants.
Dragoncub will publish a hard or soft cover edition of a book or short stories and the author sets the retail price and keeps 80% of the selling price, which is a far higher royalty than an author would generally earn from a traditional publisher.
For instance, if you decide to sell a hard back for Â£12.99, as the author you will collect Â£10.39 from each sale without having to repay any advance on royalties.
Dragoncub (http://www.dragoncub.com/books/index.php) sells books in more than 40 categories for children and adults and if you are a first-time or a published author, offers a fast and inexpensive way to put your book in front of your readers.
