Online Publishers


OverDrive Press
‘Provides a wide spectrum of options for your publishing needs.’ They require no money to be contributed by the author. Royalties are calculated as a percentage of net revenues. Take a look at their bookstore.

They offer a variety of download and purchase options; they even have an associates program.

A good site, which allows readers access to the first half of a book, and if they like what they see they can pay a fee to download the remainder. According to the publishing agreement, royalties are calculated on the number of ‘remainders’ sold.

This site offers a number of ‘free books’ to download. It has a tendency to accept any new work, as long as it is properly formatted. The publication agreement offers authors a 35% royalty if any books are actually sold.

Online Originals
This Web site is the home of the Booker Prize nominated e-book, ‘The Angels of Russia’ by Patricia le Roy, an English novelist. It is also the home of a number of other on-line titles that have received good reviews in The Times Literary Supplement. Not only that but they also offer the unique ability to receive the file in a format readable by 3Com’s Palm Pilot, making the concept of the e-books into a truly portable commodity. One title a month is offered for free download. Check out the site for their editorial policy.

1st Books
Another large e-publisher. However it only publishes books for free if they have been published before; unpublished authors can pay up to$ 500. The author however, does receive the full profit on the book till their costs are recovered, followed by a 40% royalty.

Hard Shell Word Factory
Hard Shell Word Factory is a royalty paying publisher of works for sale in electronic format from our site as downloads or disks-in-the-mail, as well as mail order. They don’t offer advances, but their royalties (paid quarterly) are much higher than those offered by traditional publishers.
