NOW THAT YOU HAVE A BOOK LIST IT IN OUR BOOK SHOP

Complete the simple documentation below.

DOCUMENTATION

Once your book is listed, it will appear in our book shop with it's own preview page

When completing our documentation you'll describe your book for customers and help them find their way to it.

Write a short and engaging description of your book. You might also want to introduce yourself and the reasons behind the work.

Next tick some genre boxes and add a few carefully chosen keywords in the field provided. These will help the right customers find your book.

Using the artwork or manuscript from when you printed your book, we'll add a preview of the first few pages to help customers decide yours is the book for them.

PRICING YOUR BOOK

YOUR SELLING PRICE

Decide on your Selling Price (also known as your list price).

This is the cost of printing one book plus the profit you choose to add.

OUR FEES

We charge a fee of 20% of the profit figure you add. This fee is only charged if a book is sold.

No sale, no fee.

EXAMPLE

Selling price R180
Less cost to print one book -R80
Profit R100
Less fee (20% of profit) -R20
Your portion R80

This example is for illustration, prices will vary.

PAYMENT

Each month we count your sales and pay you the profit less fees and printing costs.

Payment is by EFT into the bank account details you entered when completing our documentation.

You are responsible for any income tax that needs to be paid on these funds.

PROMOTE YOUR BOOK

TELLING PEOPLE

While your work could be discovered on our shelves, it really helps if you tell a few people. What your book is about. Why you wrote it. Even who you think might enjoy it.

CREATE SOME INTEREST

Mention your book on Facebook or Twitter. Tackle weightier subjects with a Linked-In article. Show visually powerful work on Instagram or Pinterest. Include the link to your book's preview page.

A LINK TO YOUR PREVIEW PAGE

We'll give you a link (a web address) to your book's preview page in the book shop. Share it with people so that they can quickly check out your book, and if they like what they see, check out with a purchase.
