for writers of books
for lesbians, bisexual or questioning women.
your written a nonfiction book you believe in but haven't been successful
getting it published? Perhaps your manuscript has been turned down
time and again and you now have no idea where to go? At Amazing
Dreams Publishing, we are committed to assisting writers who are
tired of the struggles many women face in the publishing world.
Amazing Dreams Publishing has been selling quality Ebooks and
soft cover editions worldwide since when we opened our doors on October, 15 2001.
Our background includes years of work in the publishing and book distribution
industries, so we know how to help you sell your work in the most economical yet
profitable way possible.
our LGBT bookstores and book distributors going the way of the dinosaurs, we've
found that the most profitable way to sell books for lesbians, bisexual and questioning
women is to provide instantaneous downloadable Ebooks online. Once a work is set
up to sell as an Ebook, there is also very little cost to maintain the work online,
and there is no waste--no trees cut down for paper, no wasted money in printing
and storing inventory that may never sell, and no shelf-worn copies that can not
be sold and have to be destroyed.
Ebooks are also a practically instantaneous
and private way to receive information, so a woman who is just coming out does
not have to expose herself by going into a local store to purchase books.
The other great thing about Ebooks is more profit for the authors! Although
royalty rates for printed books can vary considerably from one publisher to another,
8 to 10 percent of profit for authors is fairly standard. Generally bookstores
are given a discount rate near 50% of the retail price, meaning that for a book
that retails for $10, the publisher will receive $5.00 and of that $5.00 an author
will receive between 40 and 50 cents per book sold.
our online Ebook program, your book will be set up in our online bookstore, and
you will receive 30% of the retail price. If your book sells for $10.00,
instead of the 40 to 50 cents you would receive for a printed version, you will
receive $3.00 per sale!
You will also be given affiliate links to sell
your work through your own website, newsletter, blog, online groups or any way
online you deem possible. We have spent years mastering how to sell our own work,
and we will provide you with ideas and proven ways to market your work. The sky
is the limit as far as how much you'd like to put into marketing your own work
and making it profitable.
Because of the high percentage for Author royalties, Amazing Dreams Publishing
does not provide advances for any works listed on our website.
other authors' works:
can also market other authors' works and earn commissions too!
you have a website, blog, social networking page, like Facebook, Twitter, or Myspace,
or are a member of a news groups or any other groups, you can sign up under another
writer, and make commissions from their works too!
Just say you belong
to an online group and a young woman joins who is just coming out. You can Email
her and say you know of a great coming out support package, provide her with your
affiliate link, and if she purchases our Coming Out Support Package, you will
receive a 30% commission. Our Ebook packages are priced at $19.95, so your commission
would be $5.85 per sale. If anyone signs up to become an affiliate under you,
you will also receive a commission for each package they sell!
is a win/win situation for everyone concerned, and if you have
a website, social networking page, blog, or belong to any groups,
you can download our affiliate banners or post text links, and
start generating additional income.
