3. What happens if my book is accepted for publication with Art Official Media LLC?

If the book is accepted for publication, there is no cost involved to the author. We cover all production and distribution of the book. The author is still responsible to assist  with marketing / publicity of the book.  We work together on that. The more collaboration the better.

If the book is not accepted but we like the idea (or finished book), we offer author services.  This may or may not include distribution. 

If offered a contract, it may be for ebooks, paperbacks or both. If only distribution, the publisher will need to take care of all costs to produce and market the book.  We offer publicity services, products and consultation on how to get through the process.

Note: There are no advances given to AOM authors but the author receives a higher royalty.

Distribution will cost the publisher 70% of the retail price.  Ebook distribution will cost 50% of the retail price. Each contract is different and do not have to be signed together.
