 Are you a writer?   Whether you are a new author just testing your wings, or an old pro with books out of print, why not put your intellectual property to work?  Why not sell electronic copies and trade paperbacks on the INTERNET?  

Third Millennium Publishing is a website dedicated to providing authors with the infrastructure and resources necessary to publish and sell their work themselves.  We use a different model than the one with which you may be familiar from dealing with conventional publishers.  Instead of purchasing the rights to publish your work and then providing you 5-10% royalties on everything we sell; with our model, you retain total control over your work.  You establish the cover price, the terms of sale, how long your work will be offered to the public, and in what form.  And when you make a sale, you keep all of the money in excess of credit collection and distribution costs.  Typically, this means that your "royalty" is 65-75% of the full price of each book sold.  Except it isn't a royalty.  It is the money you earn by selling your own property to the reading public.  It is your "profit."

Remember, it is your book.  You are the sole owner of the "right to publish" and are free to use it as you see fit.  Nor does Third Millennium Publishing require exclusivity concerning the books we publish.  If you find two or three different avenues to market your book, then by all means, use them. 

What do we get out of it?  We make our money by providing you with electronic and trade paperback publishing services at substantially less cost than you could purchase them for yourself.  We can afford to do this because we have already paid for all of our infrastructure and equipment, which we initially acquired for our own use, and it does not cost us very much more to allow you to use them.  We provide you with access to our world-wide website, commercial bank account, credit card collection service, software, computers, printers, and specialized bookbinding equipment, all of which cost nearly $50,000  to acquire.

Specifically, in exchange for a nominal setup fee and a $1.00 charge  for each book sold, we will assist you with the following:

  • We will build you  your very own section of the Third Millennium Publishing Web Site in which to display electronic and trade paperback copies of your books.  Your section will include:

    •  A web address of  http: // NAME.

    • A summary page listing all of your books.

    • Individual display pages for each book.

    • An author biography page.

  • We will format your book into an electronic file using Adobe's industry-standard PDF format, PalmPilot format, and Microsoft Reader format  and post it on the INTERNET in a secure subdirectory that will prevent anyone from accessing it unless they have paid for the privilege.

  • We will provide you with credit card collection, PAYPAL, and personal check purchasing capability.  Customers may order via INTERNET, toll free telephone number, or good old fashioned surface mail.  When  they order over the INTERNET, you  instantly receive an email notifying you of that fact.  We will collect your money for you and disburse it promptly at the beginning of each month.  You will receive all money in excess of the actual cost of sales (the charge the credit card collection agency and bank assess for their services) plus our $1.00 fee per book.

  • We have a production facility that will print trade paperback books for you, or else you can have them printed elsewhere.  Unlike typical vanity presses, which require you to initially order 500-1000  books at a cost of up to $10,000 to obtain their services, Third Millennium Publishing has a minimum book order requirement of only 1 book!

  • Regardless of where you have your books printed, we will provide you with two (2) complimentary trade paperback copies of your book printed in the Third Millennium Publishing production facility.

Interested?  Then go to our "HOW IT WORKS",  "FAQs", "MANUSCRIPTS", and "TRADE PAPERBACKS" pages  to check out the details.  Who knows, it may be just what you have been looking for.  Even if it isn't, you can see what the future holds for authors.
