ARE YOU LOOKING TO PUBLISH?


Thank you for visiting my webpage, I will now try to answer any questions I think you may have as best as I can.


Question


I would like to know something more about “Woodrow Books & Publishing” and its publishing history – released books, sold copies etc.


“Woodrow Books & Publishing” was established in 2013, although I have been a published author since 2010 and a self published author since 2011. The company first came about when I met a man in Manila, Philippines, who told me he’d written two books but did not know how to publish them. I told him I could do this for him and he became my first author.


I realized that there must be many thousands of people who I could help, either because of the region they live in, (maybe outside the Amazon distribution area,) or they simply do not know how to format eBooks. (This is especially difficult for the e-pub version widely used in the USA.) After my years of experience in publishing my own books, both as eBooks and paperbacks, I know how to do this and know I can help people like you without taking advantage of them. 


What I mean by this is that many publishing companies take advantage of new, unknown authors and charge what they call “Help with set up fees.” I know all this because in 2009, I WAS one of these stupid authors who paid for this service. I paid a company (I will not say how much, but it was substantial) to have my first book published. The book was published 29th of March 2010 and I can tell you with honesty that, to this day, I have received less than £20.00 in royalties, from this MAJOR publishing company. For obvious reasons, I cannot name this company, but can tell you that this company withdrew my paperback after five years (March 2015) and pulped all unsold copies. (Although since this was supposed to have happened, there are an awful lot of “Second hand” copies available on the market! - How has this happened?)


DO NOT charge any “Upfront Fees” for my services, making my money purely from sales. If your book does not sell, I make nothing. It’s for this reason that I can say to you that the day I publish your book (or books) is not the end of my work with you, it is the beginning. (For financial details, please see below.)


Yes “Woodrow Books & Publishing” is a relatively young company, but since being set up now has more than twenty published authors from all over the world using the services, including the UK, USA, Canada, Nigeria,  Ghana, Croatia, Australia, Spain and the Philippines. Between them, I have published more than thirty books, at an average of twenty-two per year.


Whilst I cannot give you any sales numbers for individual authors, (as I would never divulge any of your information to others,) I can tell you that my own eBooks have sold more than 17,000 copies in the past three years. Of course I cannot and will not guarantee how well your books will sell, as this depends on how much work YOU (and me) put into the sales and advertising process. (Also of course, it depends on how good your book is.)


Question –


Would it be possible to specify the number of print copies to be published, what the production cost per unit will be and the retail price of both print and eBooks per unit?


The answer to this is – There will be NO copies printed in advance, as I use a “Print on Demand” service. What this means is that when somebody sees your book advertised and orders it, depending on where they live in the world, the book is printed (either in the USA or Europe) and then posted directly to the customer.


As there are “NO” copies printed in advance, there are “NO” set up fees. The unit cost is set by YOU, I will only advise you as to what I think you should charge, but the ultimate decision is yours. The production price per unit is set by the number of pages the book consists of.


Your eBook (S) will be advertised and sold on Amazon in the UK – USA – Canada – Australia – India – Japan – Mexico – Spain – Portugal – Germany and Italy. In 

total, your eBooks will be available in 70 countries all over the world.


Paperbacks will be available in Britain, all of Europe, USA and Canada. In addition to this, six to eight weeks after paperback publication, your book will be available for sale in book shops in the USA. (I cannot guarantee that bookshops will take up this offer, as it obviously depends on how good your book is.)


UPDATE –


I have recently been in negotiations with both “Waterstones” and “WH Smith” bookshops, to stock and sell books published by “Woodrow Books & Publishing” in their shops based in the UK, Canada, USA, most countries in Europe as well as many in the rest of the world. If your book is good enough, they will sell it. (Please note that the financial deal for this service may be different from those stated above and below.)


OK the financial side of this deal –


I will prepare your work for paperback, and format and upload it to sites all over the world as an eBook, plus all books of yours (or books of your friends) in the future, also FREE of charge. I stress this – FREE OF CHARGE – I will also work on the cover, either with you or for you. Again this is a free service. I am paid by percentage of the book sales only.


How does this work?


The eBooks receive a royalty of 70% (35% in some countries such as Japan and India.) From this 70% you will receive 80% and I receive 20% (percent).


Example –


If the eBook is sold at £5.00

Total royalty = £3.50

My 20% = 70p

You receive £2.80


(Please note – These figures are only used as an example, but the percentage is correct.)


At the end of every month I will send you (by email) an up to date account of the number of books you have sold and the royalty you will receive. The royalties for eBooks will always be paid TWO months after the month in which they are sold. (Please note that this can be different for paperback copies sold.)


Example – For all eBooks sold in June – The royalty will be paid to you before, or not later than the end of August. July royalties will be paid at the end of September etc.


Monies for royalties will be paid (from me) direct to your bank account if you are a British resident or by Paypal if you live outside the UK. (If you do not have PayPal, I can do a direct bank transfer, but charges may apply.)


If you are happy to go ahead with this project, please send your manuscript by email, as an attachment in WORD Doc. Format ONLY to the email address below.  Sorry but please do not send illustrated or photo books, as I do not publish these. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.


Once again I stress that the first day your book is published is NOT the last day you will deal with me. I will be with you every step of the way - FOR LIFE.


I look forward to hearing from you very soon. Please contact me at woodrowbooks@hotmail.com
