Easy as A B C

Plan A is the way to go for a manuscript in good order:

Books-on-Demand requires an initial $150 and a balance of a $600 flat fee, (monthly installments are available). When the balance is paid in full, the manuscript will be scheduled into the Production Queue.

With Plan A, the author receives a PDF of the finished book interior for review and correction before a tangible press PROOF is provided.? If there are no further corrections, the book will be placed into the Global distribution system and the author will receive FIVE (5) copies of the published book and the right to purchase through Global books at 40% of the retail price for resale at the retail price.? The author keeps all profit from personally sold books and receives a royalty for all books sold through the distribution system.? Further, the book will be added to the Global Catalog and a customized ad for the book will be designed for our Global website, Author?s page and links to push sales to www.gea-books.com.

Based on the retail price of the book, Global will arrange with each author the cost and profit based on print charge, royalty, and shipping & handling and will bill the client and remit to the author the funds above cost. Global will package and ship the book to the author?s clients.?

The author receives royalty from all books sold through Global and/or such sites as Amazon.com, etc.? Such funds are sent to Global quarterly, or annually depending on the quantity of sales. All bookstore and distributors may order directly from Ingram at the wholesale price.



Plan B is the itemized approach:

Based on the nature and size of a manuscript and the amount of editorial processing required to get the manuscript ready for electronic publication.

Books containing 4-color, multiple pictures or diagrams normally fall under Plan B. The cost generally ranges from $750 to $900 depending on the nature and size of the manuscript and the nature of the cover. There is a guaranteed limit of $900 if it is paid in full up front.? With Plan B, the author receives a PDF of the finished book for review and correction before the tangible first press PROOF is produced.?

If there are no further corrections, the book will be placed in production and into the Global distribution system and the author will receive five (5) copies of the published book and the right to purchase through Global books at 40% of the retail price for resale at the retail price.? The author keeps all profit from personally sold books and receives a royalty for all books sold t9hrough the distribution system.?
