Simply better for authors

Royalties

You keep 100% of your royalties

All your royalties are paid to you every month directly from Amazon

Rights

Force you to sign over your book rights 

Small print means you forgo ownership of film rights, audio rights and foreign language rights

If you want to get your rights back, you're forced to wait out the contract period, or spend thousands to buy back your rights

You keep 100% of your rights

You keep 100% of your rights. You keep your film, audiobook, and foreign language rights forever.

We fundamentally believe you should always be able to keep the rights to your book. You've spent so long writing it, why give it away now.

Terms

Lock you into long-term or lifetime contract

Unexpected extra charges

No lock-in or restrictive contract

One fee. No hidden or extra charges

Submission process

Frustrating submission process. You could be ignored, or you may wait months for a reply

No submission process. You simply contact us and Peter & Caroline will talk to you about your book

Timeline

After the 90 day submission process, if you then get accepted you're forced to wait again. The average extra time to finally get published is 2 years. So this make the total time to publish nearly 2.5 years

As soon as your book is ready, we'll publish it. During this time you're working with us to make a great book. Not waiting around.

Support

Outsourced support, so you never know who you are talking to.

Many companies hide from customers, making it difficult to get help. Infuriating!

Frustrating 'no-reply' emails and customer support 'tickets' so you can never get through to talk to a real human for help.

Personal 1-on-1 support from Peter and Caroline so you can be sure of continuity of service

Contact from Peter and Caroline throughout the process, so you never feel lost or in the dark

We hate 'no-reply' emails. You can always talk to us when you need help. In fact, why not say hello directly to peter@bespokeauthor.com
