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
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."
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 originally cost thousands of dollars 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:
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 and post it on the INTERNET in a
secure subdirectory that will prevent anyone from accessing it unless they
have paid for the privilege. When other formats such as Palm
Pilot and Microsoft Reader become available, we will add those formats to
your product mix.
We will provide you with both credit card collection and
personal check purchasing capability. When you sell a book,
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 small 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 2 books!
Should your book sell well enough that you exceed our
production capacity, then we will assist you to contract with a high-volume
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.
