We provide each artist with a publishing contract that stipulates advances, royalties and rights. We buy First North American serial rights in the English language. Each artist is paid a $50 advance and most books are given an initial print-run of up to 25 copies. We will re-stock books if your initial print-run sells out.

While we can’t guarantee royalties because they depend on books sales, to date, every author we have published has earned royalties.
