FAQ

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO PUBLISH MY BOOK?

The amount of time to publish a book varies from the time we receive the finished manuscript to the time the book available for sale. The timeline is dependent on the author. Benjamin Williams Publishing will give an estimated timeline, but sometimes the author may want to take his/her time going over changes or tweaking the cover or other parts of the book. We at BW Publishing are patient and understanding with the authors. Some authors have worked quickly and helped us complete their book in one month, while others have taken the time they’ve deemed necessary and completed their books in one year. When an author partners with BW Publishing, the author has some control of the timeline. We do ask that the authors take no more than eighteen months to complete the book.

ARE THERE ANY HIDDEN EXPENSES AFTER MY BOOK IS PUBLISHED?

No hidden expenses! If the author would like to add more services later or make changes to the book after it is in distribution, there are small charges related to these. No hidden expenses that you are required to pay.

WHAT IF I WANT TO END MY PUBLISHING AGREEMENT WITH BW PUBLISHING?

We ask that the author give us 30 days written notice and we will cease distributing their book. No questions asked.

WHO OWNS THE RIGHTS TO MY BOOK?

The author owns the rights to the book. The author grants BW Publishing the license to publish and distribute their work until the time the author sees fit to end the license.

HOW MANY BOOKS SHOULD I EXPECT TO SELL?

In today’s climate the most successful author are the ones who have the ability to connect with their reading audience. Gone are the days of sitting around waiting on books sales. The successful author is proactive and uses every medium available to him/her to connect with the readers. If you are that kind of author, expect great book sales.

HOW MUCH WILL I BE PAID WHEN MY BOOK SELLS?

When your book is sold through Benjamin Williams Publishing, we will pay the author 40% of the list price of the book.

HOW OFTEN WILL I BE PAID FOR MY BOOK SELLS?
