Questions

What is a book proposal?
A book proposal is used to attract publisher interest. Proposals are 1000-5000 words, and include a synopsis, chapter outline, author bio, target audience, marketing plan, and 1-2 sample chapters. Publishizer proposals are hosted online.

Do I need a finished manuscript?
For nonfiction, no manuscript is needed. In fact, it’s preferred. 90% of nonfiction books are acquired before the book is written.

How does pitching work?
At the end of your crowdfunding campaign, Publishizer uses algorithms and data science to pitch a list of relevant acquiring editors. If the editor expresses interest, they will get in contact with you directly.

How many publishers do you pitch?
We pitch at least 30 publishers for you. This includes traditional, advance-paying publishers, although we cannot guarantee an advance. To help you land a deal, we also pitch independent publishers and high-quality hybrid publishers who take a stake in the success of your book.

What are the advantages of a traditional publisher?
Prestige and publicity. Traditional publishers focus on strong author platforms and mainstream commercial potential. They pay author advances, and do not charge authors. However, expect only 5-15% royalties, and loss of creative control.

What are the advantages of an independent publisher?
Quality and attention. Independent publishers seek quality writers with a clearly defined audience for marketing. They do not normally pay advances, and do not charge authors. Expect royalties between 15-30%, and more hands-on attention than traditional publishers.

What are the advantages of a hybrid publisher?
Speed and flexibility. Hybrid publishers offer partnerships with authors looking to reach a wider readership and build their audience. They do not pay advances, and normally charge authors an upfront cost, or require a minimum order of books. Expect royalties between 30-70%, and the highest level of service, speed, and creative flexibility.

What happens if I don’t receive a publishing offer I’m happy with?
We guarantee you will receive at least 3 publishing offers, if you hit 250 pre-orders. If you hit 250 pre-orders and don't receive 3 publishing offers within 7 days of your campaign ending, we will pitch an additional 10 publishers for you, to help you get more offers.

Can you write the book proposal for me?
Yes. We offer a done-for-you book proposal writing service for a fee, and we can arrange a ghost writer to write the book for you. Please contact us for more information.
