|About the Book|
DISCLAIMER: BookLocker.com was not involved in the writing of this book. This is an independent study by Laurence Dalton, who later approached BookLocker.com, asking if we'd like to list the ebook version of his book for sale on our website.
Self Publishing POD Companies, a 124-page book, critically analyzes and ranks BookLocker and the Big Five print-on-demand (POD) companies: AuthorHouse, iUniverse, Xlibris, Lulu and Amazon.com's BookSurge. The detailed study provides overwhelming evidence that BookLocker is, by far, the best self-publishing POD company on the planet.
The six months of research that I've done will save you lots of time. You will save $500 to $1000 or more with the publishing package at BookLocker. With BookLocker you'll get a custom package for a template package price. The BookLocker custom package is $492. The price of the equivalent package at each of the Big Five is: BookSurge - $799, Lulu - $863, iUniverse – $1299, Xlibris - $1383, and AuthorHouse - $1567.
At BookLocker, the author's royalty is 35% of cover price when books are sold through the company store, 15% when books are sold through other stores. The package includes free e-book creation. All communication with authors is handled by the publisher and co-owner of BookLocker, Angela Hoy. She generally responds personally within a few hours – and with no sales pitches.
Also, any books on writing are listed free of charge on Angela's e-zine, WritersWeekly.com, the largest freelance e-zine in the world, with about 45,000 unique visitors a month.
Are you tired of being ripped off? A good deal of Self Publishing POD Companies is devoted to exposing the various deceptive practices which are used by some of the 100 POD companies that I have looked at in the six months that I spent in researching this book.
Finally, it should be noted that the knowledge contained in this book can be applied to any of the 100 POD companies not covered.
Please check the detailed table of contents and excerpt for more information.
