Here are some answers to a few common questions we’ve received…
Do you sell print copies or only e-books?
Originally, we weren’t sure if we would be able to provide print copies and were planning to expand into them at a later date. Fortunately, we have decided that we will enable our publications to be purchased via Print On Demand on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. All books published through us that are longer than 30,000 words will be available in hard copy.
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. 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.
