My Bio

*Need a book publisher? It's a drag trying to find one.

Here are some questions and answers about our service

Q: Why would I wish to be published by your company when there are bigger, more famous firms out there?

A: Indeed, but you may discover that the large, mainstream publishers tend to back established writers and celebs. They don't tend to entertain new writers, however talented they may be. We open a door for new writers.

Q: Does my book feature on billboards, magazine, radio, and television commercials?

A: Phew, in an ideal world it would, but regrettably only the huge publishing houses with the books by their non-writer megastars tend to afford such advertising campaigns. Thus, you will be advised to advertise via social networking sites, such as GotCrowd.com!

Q: Will my book actually end up in the shops?

A: Yes, unlike lots of other publishers who merely promise the pathetic line about "your book will be available on Amazon", when actually all books are "available on Amazon". Instead, we do have books in a host of stores.

Q: How long would it take for my book to be published?

A: Once your work has been emailed to us, it can take as little as five weeks, and we guarantee no longer than five months. Our service includes proof-reading and also registering your book so that it is available for retail and for the libraries.

Q: Do you charge for your publishing service, and if so, how much? A: Yes, we charge either $500, you receive 10% royalties and 10 complimentary copies or you pay $800, receive 20% royalties and 20 complimentary copies. By selling your 10 or 20 copies, you already will be recovering your relatively small outlay.

Q: Why do you charge these amounts?

A: For our small fee, $100 goes towards the cover artwork. The printers also charge us about $150 for set-up costs. Your ten (or twenty) copies will cost us about $100 (or $200) including delivery charge. Your ISBN is worth about $15 too.

Q: Are you a vanity publisher that pockets a large fee and then cares little for subsequent sales?

A: On the contrary, as we are left with a minimal amount after the aforementioned costs (usually around $150), it is clearly in our interests to ensure lots of sales to increase our revenue and to boost your chances of royalties.

Q: Can you give me one good reason why I should invest with you?

A: You will be the owner of a quality softback with an eye-catching, laminated cover. Your chances of being taken seriously next time by a larger publisher will increase if you have something in the public domain.

Q: What is the likely scenario after I have invested with your firm?

A: We contact literally thousands of stores and public libraries. Your book will sell. Sales figures will clearly be conditioned by the subject of your book and its quality.

Q: Can you tell me a little bit more about your service?

A: We are called GW Publications. We have taken over another company called Parkbench Publications. Our authors include Arthur TS Jackson, Tony Wagtar, Ian Bronderson, and Jimmie Oliver. You can email us at gw930@fsmail.net ***Other publishers advertise great offers but are shy at disclosing the small print. We at least publish our fees.***

Oddly enough, my husband is in the process of becoming a cop, LOL!Stick out tongue But no, we're not from the city area. We live in a rural, gorgeous area with countless parks, trails, and places to hike and lots of open space. It really is 'The Garden State' as well as 'Soprano-land'Cool depending on where you are. Thanks for the laugh.Smile
