Unlimited Publishing is not the only company to use revolutionary
new "print-on-demand" technologies to bring back previously
published books, and test market new ones...
... So why should you choose UP ?
QUALITY is the first part of the answer. UP provides truly
professional book design and typesetting services prior to publication.
Unlike some competitors whose books are prepared for publication
offshore by technicians who may not be
native speakers of English, UP books are
typeset by literate, quality oriented, professional
designers. As a result, the appearance of UP books is
DISTRIBUTION is essential for any writer
who is serious about reaching a broad audience.
UP books are produced by subsidiaries of Ingram
and/or Baker & Taylor, the largest book distributors
in the world. The Ingram network alone extends to
more than 24,000 outlets in the U.S. plus more than
1,700 abroad. Most competitors use a single distributor.
PROMOTION is also crucial in order for books to sold, and read.
Meaningful promotion is included as part of our standard service. Many of UP's
competitors do not provide any meaningful promotion at all;
others charge up to $300 -- or more -- for comparable services.
UP is also forthright in telling you that our efforts are not a substitute
for your own. If you've been published previously, you probably already
know that the author does a great deal of the work in promoting a book.
POD books are no exception. Since most UP titles can stay in circulation almost indefinitely, it is
important to keep your book in the public eye long after our initial
promotion is done. We will provide you with powerful tools for online
marketing starting about 90 days after release, to help you maintain
the interest of readers.
COPYRIGHT PROTECTION is a serious concern for authors of books
with widespread appeal. Some of UP's competitors sell electronic
editions without adequate security. If readers
can make electronic copies of your book and give them to others without
paying, you may be deprived of income you deserve.
SPEED is another reason why you should choose UP. If you follow our
standard submission guidelines, the printed version of your book
should be "live" in one or more of the major "Books in Print"
databases within four months. Books from our competitors sometimes take six
months to a year to reach the public. If you are considering publishing
elsewhere, make sure that the production schedule
is available in writing. If not, you may be frustrated by
extended production delays.
INTERNET EXPOSURE is provided with a webpage specifically
about each title, including "About the Book" and "About the Author"
info, as well as links for ordering copies from major booksellers.
Compare this system with others that require readers to search
through huge catalogs listing thousands -- or millions -- of other
ROYALTIES from UP are far in excess of industry norms.
UP shares 50% of net revenues from all
retail book sales equally with the author or publisher.
Many of our competitors do not. At your option, you may also
fulfill orders from readers directly from your own web site,
mailing list or at live events, for substantially greater
PRICE is the final reason to choose UP. Our system is not
the "cheapest" way to publish a book, but if you compare the
total value of all the services
we provide with the combined cost of similar services from our
competitors, you will see that UP provides the best value.
Others offer a lower initial rate, but quickly add charges with
a complicated menu of extras and add-ons that usually make the
total cost higher.
Go ahead: check out our competitors. Do your homework, do the
math. Compare the total cost of services, distribution, promotion,
production time, copyright protection. Most importantly, compare
the quality of our books. Then choose UP.
