You have yet to discover how easy it is to get published. There are approximately 100,000 new books published every year. It’s time you joined the authors who use their books to open doors you can’t even imagine are now closed to you.

In the past it was impossible to get published without an agent and a publisher. Thank goodness today is a completely different story. And the greatest issue with the new regime is the author is now entitled to 75% of the profits from their book sales rather than the paltry 35 – 50 cents they had received in the past.

There are many people who are dedicated to helping you discover the inside track of getting your book published and retaining the profits. You will be able to have your books in the book stores if you choose, create audio programs, speak about your book, have a membership site and participate in joint ventures.

 

There is no limit to the amount of income you may earn. The only limit is your own imagination. There are many was of combining efforts through joint ventures with other authors to help you experience more rapid success and a broader audience. You can market yourself within our own comfort level.

Some authors enjoy speaking while others prefer to be interviewed by radio talk show hosts. Quite a few authors prefer to sell their products while speaking yet others would rather promote their products through Internet marketing campaigns.

There aren’t many pitfalls since there are so many resources to help you through the stages of publishing you are not familiar. You’re the one who should be in control of your destiny.

I have heard about the Foreign Rights publishing concept about five years ago. It sounded interesting, but there has always been more than enough to keep me busy here in the U.S.

But recently I’ve had several authors who have been asking about the possibility of getting their books out into the world and what it will take, so I began to do more research on the concept.

There are book fairs every year where authors can attend. It’s usually a great resource for many author requirements such as publicists, marketing firms, trailer services, etc. But one of the best ways to meet a representative of foreign rights publishing is in person. So these events are one of the best methods. Usually the agent will present your book to the various publishers they represent and if the publisher believe they can do well with your title, they will make an outright offer.

That is to say, they will buy the rights to print your book, market it and keep all the proceeds for a set fee. The fee range is between $10,000 and $100,000 depending on the range of the market and the current popularity of the topic you have written about.

You may have several foreign rights agents and several publishers working with you simultaneously. In fact, the more the merrier since it will create more of a buzz about your title.
