1. I’m a self-publishing author. What can IndieGo Publishing do for me?
We believe we are the best book publisher for self-publishing independent authors because we do it all. This frees you to concentrate on writing. Each major book retailer/distributor has different, specific, and often confusing guidelines for how they want your manuscript to be formatted, not only the interior of the book but the cover as well. While this is not impossible for an author to do, it is extremely time consuming, not to mention it requires establishing a publisher’s account with each retailer/distributor. IndieGo Publishing does all that for you, but we never leave you out of the process! We communicate with you throughout the entire process from beginning to end. We work in partnership with our authors. However, if you want to upload your ebook and paperback files to your own Kindle, CreateSpace, IngramSpark, or other accounts, we can guide you through that process so that you can be in full control of your royalties. 🙂
2. Will I retain the copyright of the books I publish through IndieGo Publishing?
Yes, you will retain the copyright. You are simply assigning the digital rights to IndieGo for the purposes of epublishing your book. The copyright page of your book will show:
Book Title Copyright © 2017 Author’s Name
Published in the United States of America by IndieGo Publishing LLC
3. What are your editing rates?
I love editing and have perfected manuscripts for self-publishing authors for more than ten years. If you only need me to edit your manuscript, I will sign an agreement that states IndieGo Publishing will not publish your book or in any way sell your work. EDITING RATES: I believe in using a per-word editing rate since the words are being edited, not the pages. Most manuscripts are based on a two-cents-per-word rate. Here is a sample of how the math is calculated for the fee: 50,000-word book x $.02 per word = $1,000 editing fee payable in two installments.
4. What is the cost of your publishing package?
We charge a flat $2399 for all of these publishing services. We are certain that you won’t find a better deal with any other independent or self-publishing firm and still receive the personal attention, quality, and excellence that we are known for at IndieGo Publishing throughout the entire process from start to finish.
5. How/when will you pay my royalties?
We pay our authors through PayPal every month for royalties that have been paid to us by the various print and ebook platforms, and we email our authors a copy of their royalty reports as supporting documentation. However, under our new program, you will earn your CreateSpace and Kindle royalties (Amazon) directly because you will upload your book files to them through your own accounts. This way, no one is between you and your book royalties, and most royalties are earned through Amazon sales. 🙂
6. Do you have an author referral program?
Yes we do! If you refer an author to us who pays for any of our services, whether editing or editing and publishing, we will send you 2% after all services have been paid in full.
7. What kind of publishing contract do you offer?
We offer a non-exclusive publishing contract, which means you will always retain copyright; you are not locked in permanently; and after your book is published, you can cancel at any time with thirty days’ written notice.
