#WritingCommunity - Why We Use a Blog, Why Our Contract Term is 5 Years, Why we Staff Interns --

 




My normal job is in logistics and I think everything out in Lean Six Sigma and Kaizen. When I went in with my business plan (supposed to be 5 years) I provided them with 15 years.

 

We have hired, paid staff that I feel are excellent. We are choosing to use some interns in order to hire and develop the best.

 

Our manuscripts go through 3 rounds of edits, each with a fresh editor. I haven't seen one publisher that does that as of yet. Plus at least 2 additional rounds of proofreading.

 

We, as most every other publisher for legal reasons, do not explain the amount of promotion that we do and most ask for a marketing plan from the author prior to offering a contract to see if the author will properly market the book they sign. We already have a marketing team in place. We make no promises as some will be wanted and seen out of the gate, while others will take more time. Some promotions: Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, Pinterest, SnapChat, Tumblr, StumbleUpon, Press Releases, LinkedIn, Book Reviews, Cover Reveals.

 

The 5 year contract is with hopes that we, at least, get our initial investment back. Book covers are $200 to $1200 each. Editing is $500 to $3000 depending on length. The lowest price I've seen on a proofreader is $100. We don't plan on going anywhere and hope that once the 5 year contract is close to expiration, that all of our authors wish to re-sign with us (shorter term for round 2). If, for any reason the company were to dissolve - authors do get all rights back, a cover and promotional graphics we have picked up cost on, as well as a fully edited manuscript.

 

As for the blog, it was a personal decision as they are very easy to use, design, and update/sort. I work 70 hour weeks (2pm to anywhere from 3am to 6am plus drive time 6 days a week). I would rather have something I enjoy looking at over many of the bland websites I see and have difficulty finding what I am looking for on. Also, this is additional money invested into YTP authors over a website that doesn't promise a book sale.

3) Series – good grief am I a series girl. I hate saying goodbye to characters. Bring me your best series that go on an on.

4) Voodoo, Bayou lore, New Orleans – now be careful here - magic and so on is tricky. So, this is a hard one that I am very picky on. Don’t send me a duplication of The Originals.

5) LGBT – stand-alone or series

6) Own Voices

Stories that hold whimsy and a sense of timelessness are a favorite of mine. Breaking the conventional rules of magic or politics always catches my eye.

Why Take a Chance on a New #Publisher #YardTimePublishing #WritingCommunity #Authors #AmReading

 


#Submissions are now being accepted.

I get it. I really do.

With so many long time, fairly decent sized publishers closing over the last few years – why on earth take a chance on a newbie?

Well, you see, in that may exactly be your answer.
We’re new.
We’re motivated.
We’re hungry.
We’re driven.

We don’t just want your book. We don’t just want you to be a number. Of course, if that’s what you prefer, we’re here to make sure you’re happy.
We want happy authors and happy staff.

Can we promise ship loads of cash? No.
Can we promise there won’t be mistakes? No.
Can we promise to fix those mistakes and listen to ideas? Yes.
Can we offer advances? No. But we do hope one day we will be able to, especially to those that publish numerous books with us.

Goals: We want an eventual brick and mortar bookstore in the Phoenix area – even if I have to start it out of my home (lol).

Get to know us. Give us a chance. Ask us questions.

Tell us what keeps you from wanting to go with a publisher. Let us know how we can gain your trust to work with us.
