Publication Opportunities

 

 

 

ArcheBooks Publishing Offers Two Divisions of our Book Publications:

TRADITIONAL (New Fiction)

 

Author Applicability:  This publication division of ArcheBooks provides 100% publisher paid production, printing, distribution, and marketing assistance of its original titles, subject to Publisher acceptance and approval of an author's manuscript.  Please note that this level of production is provided for Fiction Authors only.  Please see our manuscript submission guidelines as specified below.

 

If a manuscript is accepted, the Author will receive a Publishing Agreement and upon return of the signed Agreement, the new title goes into the production queue.  The author will be updated regularly on production progress and release date.  Decisions are typically made within 180 days.  Release dates are targeted to be within one year of Agreement execution.

 

Book Formats:  Published titles will be made publicly available for sale in a Trade Paperback (6"x9") printed version as well as in eBook form distributed by Amazon Kindle.

 

Royalties:  If accepted for publication, ArcheBooks fiction authors earn a 10% of MSRP royalty rate. For example, if a book retails at $14.95, the author would earn $1.50 per copy sold.

 

Author Discounts:  All ArcheBooks authors enjoy the ability to order personal stock of their books to sell individually at the standard wholesale discount of 40% off of MSRP, plus S&H.  See our Wholesale Ordering page for more information.

 

 

 

 

 

 

COMMERCIAL (Non-Fiction and Select Fiction)

 

Author Applicability:  This publication division of ArcheBooks offers full production services, printing and both offline and online distribution, with the associated editing and production costs paid for by the author.  This service is intended for authors of Non-Fiction titles, such as Political Works, Memoirs, Autobiographies, Self-Help, and Business books.  That is, non-fiction titles by authors who have not previously established a commercially viable audience (i.e. already famous) represent an unacceptable risk for most publishers, large or small.  With the author mitigating the publisher's initial up-front investment risk, these titles can enjoy professional production services, inclusive of all the benefits listed below in the ArcheBooks Book Production Details (see below).

 

Select Fiction Option:  Commercial Production Services are also open to select fiction titles in such cases where the author does not wish to wait through the traditional acceptance/rejection period from this publisher or any other traditional publisher, and also desires to earn a much higher royalty rate per copy sold.  For a more detailed discussion on why an author might elect to use Commercial Production Services, Learn More...

 

Accelerated Royalties:  All Commercial Production titles earn a royalty rate of 20% of the MSRP.  So, for example, if a book retails for $14.95, the author would earn $3.00 per copy sold.

 

Exceptions:  Most books will qualify and be accepted for this service, as long as titles do not violate ArcheBooks Acceptable Use Policy - i.e. no Erotica, Promotion/Incitement of Violence, etc.  ArcheBooks retains the right to not accept any title it deems too offensive.

 

Please note that even Commercial Services titles still need to be submitted per the Submission Guidelines below.  If acceptable as non-offensive material, the author will then receive a Publishing Agreement for signing and an Invoice for services.  Upon payment of invoice, the new title goes into the production queue.  The author will be updated regularly on production progress and release date.  Commercial client's titles are typically targeted to be released within 60-90 days of Agreement execution, subject to variance of ArcheBooks' editorial and design workload.

 

Commercial Production and Distribution Rate:  $0.02 / word.  Book length must be within the Minimum/Maximum word count specified below.

 

NOTE:  Published Rates are subject to change as production costs vary, but remain fixed upon execution of an official Publishing Agreement.

 

All ArcheBooks authors enjoy the ability to order personal stock of their books to sell individually at the standard wholesale discount of 40% off of MSRP, plus S&H.  See our Wholesale Ordering page for more information.
