Here are some answers to a few common questions we’ve received…
🔸Do you sell print copies or only e-books?
All of our books are made available to be purchased via Print On Demand through both Amazon (paperbacks) and Barnes & Noble (hard covers). All books published through us that are longer than 30,000 words will be available in hard copy. We also distribute e-copies through Smashwords, so our e-books are available from major stores like Nook, Kindle, iStore, Google Books etc.
🔸Do you offer anything in the way of PR or marketing?
Gurt Dog authors are offered a discounted rate for PR campaigns arranged with our sister company, B Proud PR, and also receive a free social media campaign. We like to get involved in promoting our authors’ work, and so even if you decide to arrange promotions with a different PR company, or even decide to organise it yourself, we will always be available for advice and help, and we will take part in promoting your book on our social media.
🔸Do you charge anything? Will I have to pay to have my book published with you?
Absolutely not. We do not charge money for publication, nor do we expect authors to pay us for editing, formatting and everything else that goes into preparing a book for sale. The only thing that authors are expected to put money into is their PR campaign, but this is commonplace for many small presses. Please be wary of publishers who expect you to pay money upfront just for them to even consider your manuscript.
🔸How much will I earn from sales?
Gurt Dog authors receive 50% of all profits from the sale of their books, a very generous offer! This includes both e-copies and print copies.
