Abundance Books offers two types of publishing contracts:
This is where no costs are incurred by the author and the whole cost for producing, publishing, and marketing the work is covered by us. We only publish two traditional books per year and the quota for 2022 is filled. We are accepting proposals for 2023. Send a query letter to [email protected]
Hybrid Publishing Contract
This offer is based on a contribution, to be paid by the author, to cover the initial production and printing of the work. We will walk you through the process of getting your manuscript from whatever state it is in now to the point of distribution.
We offer a full range of services, but you only pay for what you need.
Editing is a process, not an event. To make your manuscript the best it can be, it needs layers of editing. Each builds upon the other to deliver your most meaningful message.
Developmental editing is a phase in the book publishing process where we work with you to resolve “big picture” issues in your manuscript: structure, form, plot, and character. Because the focus is on wider story elements, this type of editing normally won’t address sentence-level errors such as punctuation and grammar, and typos. As we help you work through your manuscript, we keep your target audience and message goals in mind and assess your work in relation to industry standards for your genre. Once your manuscript has gone through the developmental editing process, it is ready for copy editing.
Copy editing will address grammatical or punctuation errors, incorrect facts, anomalies, inconsistencies, and glaring typos. Overall, the purpose of copy editing is to ensure that the language supports your intended message — while also creating the most readable version of your book.
Proofreading is the final stage of the editing process. We ensure your book is ready to hit the presses. The proofreader will double-check everything. They’ll make sure your book is free from spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and other issues that could spoil a reader’s enjoyment of your writing.
We offer coaching and mentoring for writers at all stages of their writing journeys, from beginners to established, published professionals. Even if you are not publishing through Abundance Books, we can help you reach your goals. Whether you are looking to finish your first book, develop as a poet, write a screenplay or get articles published in the press, we can help. We specialize in career development for those who wish to complete their projects, develop professional habits, and get their work published.
Abundance Books is a member of the Christian Independent Publishing Association (CIPA) and has connections to all the tools and resources to make your book project successful. We are able to produce both hardcover and paperback books for both children and adults. We also have distribution connections to help get your title into bookstores in your chosen market and around the world.
