Beware of any publisher who guarantees that you’ll make your money back. The truth is, it’s impossible for anyone to predict if you will recoup your initial investment. Even with traditional publishing, the success of any book is ultimately up to the author. A good publisher can guarantee a great final product, but it takes work to expand your audience and reach enough readers to make your money back.
Authors publish with us for many reasons. For some, it’s a life goal, while others are inspired to share their personal story or expertise with the world, among other motivators. We actively discourage authors from publishing with us if their primary goal is to make a profit. Writing and publishing a book is a significant achievement and should come from a place of passion rather than a desire to make a profit.
