A change in policy over at our ethical self-publishing department i4w2:
From now on we will only take on books where the author is deadly serious about marketing, treats publishing and marketing as a business, and plays a very active role in getting their books out there and sold.
Until now we’ve taken any book that’s good enough to be published. But in view of the considerable amount of work these books require and the very low cost we charge for publishing them, we can’t afford to continue doing this if they’re only going to sell a handful for family and friends.
If you’re deadly serious about marketing your book and are willing to do whatever it takes to sell it, then we look forward to doing business with you. If you’d rather not get involved in marketing then we’d rather not publish your book.
This change in policy does not affect any of the books we’ve already accepted for publication.
