Authorlink Partnership Publishing is offered on a selective basis via Authorlink Press, the traditional publishing unit of Authorlink.com. An author or small publisher is selected to participate in our co-publishing program, which offers generous royalties to participants– 50% of the net income. In this program, the author or small publisher must cover some of the up-front costs of design and conversion. We do all of the distribution and accounting for you. While this program is not open to everyone, your work can be presented for possible designation as a partnership publisher with Authorlink.
Our publishing partners have access to higher-level publishing outlets than are sometimes available to the general self-publishing public. While each case is different, the advantages of working with Authorlink as your partner in publishing, rather than on your own, may result in:
- a stronger distribution plan
- more attractive retail discount terms
- better discover-ability of a title
- competitive pricing strategies
- more accurate metadata
- higher royalties
- few if any accounting headaches
Partnership-publishing with Authorlink also enables you to order your own book titles at substantial discounts off the retail rate, and to keep a fair share of your royalties from sales.
While accept only a few authors into our program each year, ask if if we might consider your work for this program. We are especially interested in children's titles at this time.
Just contact us.
We offer standard trade discounts through our wholesalers and through direct sales.
Our high quality print titles are printed as traditional runs with stocked inventories, and are distributed through the full publishing program at Ingram Book Group, Baker & Taylor, and other distributors.
Our e-book titles are distributed via Barnes & Noble, Nook for Kids, Amazon Kindle, Apple iBook Store, Kobo and Sony. In addition we distribute to about 30 smaller vendors.
Our books are available to consumers through major brick and mortar bookstores, independents, through online booksellers.
At the present time Authorlink Press is NOT accepting unsolicited manuscripts. Our parent company, Authorlink.com, however, accepts unsolicited and unagented manuscript submissions for its Publishers Market rights showcase. See Pitch My Book.
Brief e-mailed queries are required before submission of actual materials. No unsolicited e-mail attachments please! No phone calls. Unsolicited materials mailed or e-mailed to Authorlink Press will automatically be discarded unread. Authorlink Press' submission policies should not be confused with its parent company, Authorlink.com, which is a separate marketing service, and not part of our publishing unit.
