The Haines Communications Imprint service provides you with the option of having your book written and published at a lower cost than our full service program. This is accomplished by having Haines Communications be the publisher and retaining the royalties from sales of your book. If you anticipate needing fewer than 100 copies of your paperback or intend to primarily provide an e-book version of your book, one of the following packages may be the right option for you.
All Haines Communications Imprint packages have the same book writing and publishing service as the full-service Haines Communications package, the differences being that the books published with our imprint service:
- Carry the Haines Communications imprint as publisher rather than the author or the author’s company
- Do not earn royalties for the author
- Have a fixed retail price of $15.99 for paperback books and $3.99 for e-books (except for package #3)
The content for your paperback book will be sourced from a recorded interview with you (which takes approximately 1.5 to 2 hours), a questionnaire that we ask you to complete, and any supplemental material such as blogs or articles you have written that you provide us with. The interview will then be transcribed into a text file and merged with the other information we have obtained into a raw manuscript.
The manuscript will then be organized into chapters and the last chapter will be “About the Author” using material you provided in the questionnaire. The manuscript will then edited and proofread.
An appropriate trim size will be selected and your book formatted using our templates. The “Table of Contents” will be generated from the formatted book headings.
Cover art which is appropriate for the subject of your book will be selected and a cover designed which will include an image of the author, book description, and a unique ISBN number. A book proof will then be generated and submitted to you for review.
After acceptance of the proof, your book will be sent to Amazon for print-on-demand publication, listed for sale in the Amazon marketplace, bookstores and other online retailers, and a copy will be sent to you.
Using our templates, we convert your manuscript into an e-pub book format and then design and create a cover for your e-book. Your finished e-book is then sent to Draft2Digital for distribution through their partner stores, which currently include:
- Barnes & Noble
Package #1, basic: $995.00
With this package you purchase copies of your books at full price from online retailers. This is the best option if you will only need a few copies of your book and intend to direct people to sites where they may purchase your book themselves.
Package #2, wholesale: $1,295.00
Same as package #1, but can also purchase your books for $7.99, a 50% discount from retail. To do so you request a temporary price reduction for 2 days during which time you may order as many books as you wish at the wholesale price.
Package #3, wholesale plus free e-books: $1,495.00
Same as package #2, plus your e-books will be listed for free (except for Amazon which will be $0.99). This is the best option if you would like to provide links to your e-books so people can download them for free.
