'Publishing My Book'

PublishU is passionate about helping authors like you publish your book to a global audience!

The 'Publishing My Book' service offers authors a number of benefits including:

  • World-class design and production (using the latest technology and processes).
  • 100-day publishing timeline (rather than 18+ months from a traditional publisher).
  • Print-on-demand (rather than pre-purchase of stock, which costs thousands).
  • Global distribution (rather than limited to your country of residence).
  • 35% Profit margin (rather than receiving a traditional royalty of just 10-12.5%).
  • Bi-Annual Sales Report & Royalty Payment (rather than once a year).

This compelling financial model requires zero cash wrapped up in stock, warehousing, or shipping because we utilise performance printing with partners like Amazon, offering attractive margins that ensure maximum money arrives in your bank account!

The 'Publishing My Book' Pathway provides a 12-step streamlined approach (illustrated by the infographic below) from submission of your manuscript to global publication.
