In talking to clients and potential clients, invariably the following logical questions arise in one form or another:
These are all perfectly acceptable and understandable inquiries; after all, if someone is considering hiring us in the form of one of our Publishing Packages or for Ghostwriting, they want to know if their outlay of hard-earned money will be worth it. While it’s gratifying to see your work in print, for most of us it’s not just about the accomplishment of producing a book; it’s about reaching your audience, connecting with your readers, building a following and yes — selling as many copies (in paperback and Kindle) as possible.
There are many pros to choosing the independent publishing route with Writestream Publishing:
That said, we cannot offer a guarantee that doing X will result in Y. As much as we’d like to, we simply cannot promise that you’ll sell a certain amount of copies within a specified amount of time — even if you actively promote on social media, host book signings in your local area, speak at various community events, garner hundreds of reviews on Amazon, and participate in regular interviews on internet radio. While we highly recommend a combination of marketing efforts the truth is it takes consistent, daily action over a long period of time (which can range anywhere from a few months to several years) before you’ll start selling books, breaking even on your investment, and eventually seeing a profit from your book.
What can we guarantee?
