eBooks and POD books
are the future of publishing.
The 1stBooks Library is here today.
A special announcement
for established authors
who hold electronic rights to books published previously
by major publishing houses,
and established writers
with new works not yet published elsewhere:
- For established authors, there are no startup fees of any kind;
- Publishing with 1stBooks generates income from works that are not producing royalties elsewhere;
- Writers retain all rights, and are free to publish elsewhere at any time;
- Authors retain control of content;
- Royalties up to 40% -- far above industry norms;
- Worldwide distribution and promotion;
- Endorsed by the National Writers' Association and other writers groups; and
- Widespread media coverage, growing steadily.
Electronic books are sometimes called virtual books, digital books, or
eBbooks are not physical objects made of paper and ink. Instead, they
are full-length books which are downloaded as data files from the World Wide Web,
directly to the computers of readers around the world.
Print on demand books share many of the advantages of eBooks, and make paperback
editions of selected titles from 1stBooks available from more than
25,000 bookstores in the U.S. and abroad.
The 1stBooks Library is the world's leading international distributor
of electronic books, with up to 300,000 or more webpages viewed at our
site each month by readers from more than 91 countries.
Our online library contains hundreds of books in all genres, including many
exclusive titles not available elsewhere. Fiction, non-fiction,
humor, instructional books, inspirational books, poetry and books
for children are just a few of the topics available.
Authors who publish eBooks retain all rights
and control of content, remaining free to publish elsewhere at
any time. 1stBooks does not edit the writer's work; the author decides
what the public reads.
The number of 1stBooks titles available to the public is
unlimited, and all eBook titles are available 24 hours a day, 365 days
a year, to anyone in the world with a connection to the Internet --
estimated at 50 to 70 million users, and growing rapidly. Many readers
report that they can conveniently download an assortment of eBooks
in less time than it takes to visit a single bookstore, from the comfort
of their own homes.
The 1stBooks Library is aggressively promoted
worldwide. The website is registered with more than 900 search
engines, posted to hundreds of literature-related newsgroups and 'Top 100'
sites, and advertised in a variety of media on a regular basis. Newspaper
and magazine articles about 1stBooks and our authors are appearing
in more and more publications every month, as eBooks and POD books revolutionize
the publishing industry.
Royalties are up to 40%, far above industry norms.
Because there are no costs for paper and ink, binding, shipping,
un-sold copies returned by bookstores, or other fees charged by
middlemen, eBooks are typically sold at 25% to 50% below
softcover prices. Yet because the royalty is so large, most
authors receive more income from the sale of an
eBook than its hard-copy counterpart.

for professional writers,

a list of major best sellers that were originally published by their
authors. The success of these books is indisputable proof that
self-published books can achieve widespread
popularity. Using the latest technologies from 1stBooks,
the potential is now greater than at any time in history.
For established authors, there are no startup costs
of any kind. Nominal pre-press costs can be deferred entirely
against sales. In cases of books with especially good commercial
potential, 1stBooks may, at our option, assume these costs in their
1stBooks handles all the technical details, allowing writers to
spend their time doing what they do best: writing.
No computer expertise is required. While many
authors prefer to submit their manuscripts in standard word processing
formats, regular typed manuscripts can also be scanned and converted
to digital format.
1stBooks will also create a professionally-designed
digital book cover. Or authors may provide their own choice of
artwork in standard computer formats.
New electronic titles can usually be ready for worldwide distribution
within 60-90 days of the date when the manuscript is submitted. POD
books are usually available 45-60 days thereafter.
1stBooks is actively seeking new titles in all genres for
distribution through the 1stBooks Library. Established authors who hold
electronic rights to books published previously by major publishing
houses, or interested in bringing new works to a vast worldwide audience,
are urged to join the revolution of the publishing
industry, which is already underway. Contact 1stBooks today at:
