WildBlue Press is an exclusive 21st Century publishing company where authors take charge of their careers with our help. We are an A-Z publisher that takes your manuscript through the entire publishing process—editing, book covers, formatting, distribution and accounting—and combines that with a state-of-the-art website and a cutting-edge marketing and promotions program that neither traditional publishers nor other indie publishers can match.
We charge our authors NOTHING upfront and our publishing agreement is transparent, so that our authors know exactly what is happening behind the scenes.
We also pay better royalty percentages than traditional publishers, and competitive, often superior percentages to other indie publishers—especially if you take into account all that we do for our authors.
Once accepted, we treat all of our authors the same. With the drawing power of multiple authors, the result is that our promotional abilities are amplified with a greatly increased presence on the web and among readers through cross-pollinating fanbases, as well as SEO and social media avenues.
Our books do not go out of print, nor are they left to exist in some sort of limbo where they are never heard from again, but instead we continue to promote and find new readers into the future.
Currently, we are publishing in the following genres: We are soon expanding into other genres, including romance and memoir. We also produce and publish books for individuals and companies who want to professionally produce books for personal distribution to family, friend, employees and associates if directed, we will also place these books for sale with the general population.
We will soon be offering ghost-writing and production services to those with a story to tell but without the ability or time to do it themselves. Both are authors of WildBlue Press.
What separates us from traditional, indie and self-publishing avenues? We are competitive with any other indie publisher and superior if you take into account what we offer in addition to our royalty rates. There are no out-of-pocket charges to authors. We make money only if you do. We are an A-Z publisher.
Our authors tell us this all the time. We integrate the best of self-publishing—independence, editorial control, better percentages, faster publication and quicker payouts—with the best of traditional publishers—production, distribution and accounting—and then market the heck out of our books, which none of the others do as well as we do.
You decide what you want to publish and we work with you on a publication date. We insist on quality—from manuscript editing to book covers to who we invite or accept to join us.
Our success depends on the success of each and every one of our authors. We take advantage of all current online marketing methods, as well as more traditional marketing, advertising and media promotions.Frank- sounds like a great idea, if I can pull off writing the release that is!
