The Basic publishing package is ideal for those authors seeking time- and cost-effective publication, as well as a little assistance in marketing and achieving an online presence.
The Basic Plus publication process involves making the book available as an e-book—through Amazon’s Kindle format—as well as in paperback, which will be made available to hundreds of distributors, retailers and wholesalers across the globe. Whilst the manuscript does not go through any changes—what is submitted to us is exactly what will be digitally formatted and distributed—our extensive Book Cover Templates range is made available to you for selection. The cover can be customised with your choice of fonts (see the Notebook Publishing Fonts Guide), incorporating the book title, author name and blurb of your choice.
Once the cover and manuscript have been compiled into print-ready format by our dedicated team, a proof copy of the book will be generated and shipped to you for approval. Upon your confirmation, the work will be documented with the UK Copyright Registration Office; you will be sent a link to your copyright certificate.
At this point, you simply set your retail price and wholesale discount (if applicable), and we do the rest. The book will be assigned an ISBN, a barcode will be generated, and the book made available for print through Ingram’s Distribution channels1.
Once officially published, we will then have 10 copies of your book printed and shipped to you, along with 50 bookmarks. Your own Press Release will also be submitted to 50 different sources through our marketing department.
Finally, as a way of helping to establish an online presence for yourself as an author and for your newly published book, we will either create a video (to be made available through Notebook Publishing’s YouTube™ channel) or pen a Blog entry (to be made available through Notebook Publishing’s official blog) highlighting the release of your book, thus helping to improve exposure for your book.
All Basic Plus authors receive royalties due every quarter2.
All Basic Plus publishing package elements to be fulfilled within 7 working days (excluding manuscript copy editing/proofreading and book cover design).
Purchasing the Basic Plus Publishing Package?
1Timescales will differ in terms of when the book becomes available through Ingram’s partners and/or Books In Print. In the days and weeks following publication, more and more distributors, retailers and wholesalers will make the book available through their own channels/outlets. Notebook Publishing has no direct control of this.
2All royalties to be paid every month, 3 months after sales. For example, earnings from January sales to be paid in April. A minimum of £5.00 royalties to be earned before payment is submitted. A 5% charge for the payment of all royalties is applicable, i.e. for every £1.00, Notebook Publishing reserves £0.10 to cover administration and the processing of payments.
