Entrepreneur Publishing Program
We're the number one author-friendly publisher!
When you want to control the future of your book...we can help!
Many authors have specific ideas for marketing their books. Most publishers agree to publish your book
and THEY control all of the sales and marketing. You are given only a token number of copies of your
own hard work, which eliminates the possibility of you doing your own marketing. Royalties paid to you
for your book may not begin to compensate you for the time spent creating your masterpiece. (The
national average for author compensation is only $4000 and this includes the 1% who have been lucky
enough to write a bestseller).
Entrepreneur Publishing Program gives you back the control you want, and gives you the opportunity to
make more money, even if you don't make the bestseller list.
