BREAKTHROUGH PUBLISHING PACKAGE

 

An indie writer's path to success is complex and tiring, and more often than not leads to dead ends, wasted time and money, and the need to re-do all the work, sometimes more than once. To acquire all the information necessary for publishing a title, and also find and assess the right network of professionals who can help polish it, an author has to work long hours, have access to interminable reserves of patience, and develop an aptitude for discerning truth from nonsense.


It is no wonder, then, that so many truly talented writers give up the fight. This is exactly how this one-stop-shop complete publishing package came about.


This option is right for you if:


  • you have a manuscript, but no time or inclination to deal with the hassle of having it published;
  • you want to spend more time with family or just having fun;
  • you don't know where to start when it comes to self-publishing - it's overwhelming;
  • you're fed up with getting rejection after rejection from agents and publishers; this book deserves to be out there;
  • you don't want to lose any of your future royalties - heck, you may even transfer them to your children in your will, but you can't do that if there is no published book;
  • you've written this story as an experiment and now you need to test your talent, or the market for this specific genre, before you waste more time writing something that may not sell;
  • you think it would be awesome to have a tiny portion of your thoughts immortalized for all eternity in an electronic format;
  • you hate haggling - frankly, the mere thought of having to discuss fees and options, or make decisions on formats, covers and the like is enough to bring you up in hives;
  • you want to have a clear-cut budget for publishing a book, and be safe in the knowledge that the fee quoted is all you'll have to pay;
  • your artistic talent stops with the written word - visuals are not your forte;
  • you really are not interested in the editing process, as long as you get a perfectly polished product at the end of it;
  • you have a vague feeling you know how to write a synopsis, as this was covered in college at some point, but the truth is you would have to go on Google or YouTube for a refresher course;
  • you're in the swing of it - the second and third books will burn a hole through your brain if you don't keep writing, and publishing the first book would break your creative flow;
  • you have no idea where to even start in order to set up your Amazon account, and as for paperbacks... just no!


If one or several of the above apply to you, all you need to do is send your manuscript to us, and we'll deliver the finished product, complete, uploaded on the sites of your choice, and ready for sale. All publisher accounts will be set up in your name, and you will retain 100% of all royalties pertaining to the sales of your book.


We'd be delighted to take the stress of publishing a finished manuscript out of your hands.


Note: All our work is undertaken in an easy-to-track, transparent way. We are here to make life easier for our authors. You will be able to monitor the progress of your project on a password-protected, private page which will be updated regularly, and your emailed queries will be answered in a timely and professional manner.

FAQ


Can I purchase a promotional plan if my book wasn't produced by you?


No. We take pride in the quality of our work and go to extra lengths to make sure it is of excellent quality. If we have no knowledge of your book and whether it was put through equally stringent procedures, we wouldn't be able to vouch for its quality. However, we offer a wide range of additional services, including promotion, which may fit what you are looking for. Check out our Treasure Chest Services.



Why is the main package so costly? You should be able to publish a book for much less than that.


You're right. You could invest nothing in a book - other than time, of course, and it is entirely possible you have plenty of time to spare. If you do everything yourself, it will cost you zero dollars. But unless you happen to be a multi-talented genius, the likelihood is that you won't have much to show for the time spent on your project. A quality product requires expert handling, from the editor down to the formatter, and even the person who will use their expertise to decide in which categories and sub-genre your book would fit best. An experienced cover designer could provide the hook necessary to make your next reader click on the Amazon thumbnail, and a good description will drive the sale home. Are you sure you can do that? Anyone can publish a book, but only experts will give it the best start in life.



I found a cheap editor on Google. Will you take my book and cut the editing cost out of the $2000?


No, for the same reasons we would not promote a book that has not been produced by PGP. We know the value of our editors and proofreaders, and we can vouch for the quality of our product. We have nothing against any free-lancing professionals. It is entirely possible that you could find cheaper options that, when added together, will amount to less than the fee we have quoted, but we believe our service is second to none, and the experience we bring to the table is worth every cent.



Is the $2000 all I'll have to pay?


Yes. There are no hidden additional costs.



Why do you have the paperback as an add-on? Aren't paperbacks useful?


You have two questions there, but they are linked. First, for a paperback you will require a different cover, different formatting, additional well thought-out material on the back cover, and a different promotional launch. Not everyone finds value in having a paperback book, and that is the reason why it is not included in the main package. Regardless of your personal preference, the e-book market is growing at an exponential rate. E-books are cheaper, more convenient to carry around and store, and come with advantages such as easy one-click access to authors' websites, related merchandise and resources. They are also easier to manage and cheaper when used as a promotional tool. Paperbacks are expensive to produce whichever way you look at it. You could use a print-on-demand service, such as Createspace, and pay a higher price of production per copy, or you could go with an independent printer, who will have their own requirements as to the files they need, paper size and trim, and print run. You will have to pay for a bunch of copies in advance (think thousands of copies at a few dollars each) and then find some way to store them, perhaps incurring warehousing costs. They constitute expensive promotion, and not only because of the postage costs.


I've had my book produced by you via the Breakthrough Package. Now I would like to submit it to you for a traditional contract. Does that give me an automatic way in and will you refund my $2000?


You are welcome to submit your book for consideration, but there is no guarantee that it will make it through the selection process. You'll find our Submission Guidelines here. We have a stringent two-tier selection process in place, and all aspects of a manuscript are scrutinized and assessed by a panel of experts (a different panel for each tier) before we reach a decision. All applicants receive a quick evaluation of any areas that may require work, and are welcome to re-submit after addressing those shortcomings. A traditionally published manuscript requires at the very least the same amount of work we put into a Breakthrough Publishing Package, especially if your book has already been published some time ago. In all cases, an additional promotional effort is required on our part. For that reason, no, we cannot refund your $2000 if your book is accepted for a traditional publishing package.
