What You Need to Know about Assisted Publishing!
Why Use Assisted Publishing?
Assisted Publishing and Hybrid Publishing space are a new modality of Publishing Books.
They are ways to think outside the box. Traditional publishing is losing its attraction and becoming less profitable.
There are different types, and basically, what differentiates them from the “vanity press model” is that they are more like regular publishing companies but with a unique blueprint.
Hybrid Publishing (and some of the Assisted Publishing) maintain an active submissions process.
They also control their cover design and editorial process.
The payment for the author in Assisted and Hybrid Publishing comes from having more control of the sales and the Royalties.
The author may invest in their own work, or perhaps they may be raising money through crowdfunding to finance their work. The Good part is that they keep a considerable share of the profits instead of giving it all away (like traditional publishing).
The Aspiring Authors maintain creative ownership and are treated more like partners in the process. They do not depend on their publishers.
Yet, it’s a competitive publishing marketplace out there, and we urge authors to consider these options with their eyes wide open.
Assisted publishing may be a very suitable option if an author cannot take your title on an outright Traditional publication or simply prefer to produce your title themselves.
