is actively seeking authors to sign with us!

New talent is fine with us. We want to encourage these new authors by
bringing their work to the world through eBooks, which we believe is
the format in which many people will read books in the future.
Our contract is relatively straightforward and easy to understand. It
protects both the author and the publisher. All terms are, of course,
Authors who let us produce
books of original content and sell it here at our Website receive 50
percent of the online sales
price as a royalty. That’s truly an amazing figure in the
business (both off-line AND online) but we want to reward our authors
for their hard work.
