Author Responsibility

In a perfect world, authors would write and someone else would take care of the rest. Unfortunately, even traditional publishers are moving away from that business model and all authors are tasked with some sort of promotion. This takes time away from tweaking final edits on your new release, starting the next book, or enjoying a well-deserved rest, but its a totally necessary part of the gig.

We want to help you as much as possible, but there are some things we cannot do for you:

  • Cover Art: We cannot create this for you, but we can refer you to a few cover artists if you don’t have one
    Must submit: 400 x 600 ebook cover
    Optional: full jacket
  • Title and blurb… sorry, this is ALL YOU
  • As is your bio, headshot/logo, and social links
  • Want a review? We ask our authors to use Prolific Works for ARC distribution. Their basic service is free
  • Pre-order, buy links, giveaway details, teaser graphics, etc…also, all you

Deadlines

  • Invoices are due on receipt
  • Final artwork and tour materials are due 14 days before the start of your tour
  • ARCs: we recommend at least 21 days before the start of your tour, but at least a minimum of 14 days
  • Deadlines for last-minute tours are negotiated at time of scheduling

Changes and Cancellations

  • Reschedule a tour more than 14 days before the start for no extra fee
  • Less than 14 days will result in a fee equal to 1/3 of the service price
  • Cancel a tour more than 14 days before and we’ll issue a 50% refund
  • No refund if you cancel less than 14 days before the start of the tour
