4. How AMT Will Help You Convince a Traditional
Publisher to Publish Your Work

5. AMT Understands that Publishing is an
Extremely Competitive Business

  • You desire to produce and distribute quality products which your consumers want . . . Like other businesses, you must balance prior commitments and potential opportunities with limited resources

  • Publishing a book represents a significant financial commitment . . . This means it is often financially impossible for you to take a chance on a new author, even though you "know in your heart" that he or she has potential

  • Until now it has simply not been financially possible for you to test market large numbers of new manuscripts . . . The risk, of course, has been that you could lose a potential "superstar" to another publisher

AMT Makes it Easy and Inexpensive to
Test Market a New Book!
  • Through the 1stBooks Library you can internationally "test market" a new book for two years

  • You will have no production or distribution costs

  • AMT's customer tracking system will tell you how often readers are buying the book and where they are from

  • Through AMT's Book Review Lounge you can see what readers are saying about the book

  • You may also review the success of other books in the 1stBooks Library

By Placing a Book in the 1stBooks Library
You can Test Market a Book for Two Years
While You Maintain a Relationship With the Author

6. AMT Can Make Your Book Available to Millions
of Readers Around the World in 30 Days!

Here's All You Do
  • Make sure your book is the way you want it . . . You are the publisher and AMT will not edit your work

  • Copyright your book . . . If you need help, AMT can provide it

  • Write your own cover jacket . . . This is what potential readers will see. So you should make it as good as you can. (Be sure to include a brief biographical sketch)

  • Send your manuscript to 1stBooks . . . If you have questions regarding what format to use call AMT at 800 839-8640
