Nowadays, it is increasingly difficult to get a traditional publishing deal, and virtually impossible if you have self-published. Therefore, for a self-published author, a great deal of precious time (and money) is spent promoting exposure and selling their book - time which would be much more preferably spent writing the next one!
An L.R. Price Publications DISTRIBUTION LICENCE gives you, the self-published author, the best of both worlds, and total freedom of choice. You retain the rights to your book (and your soul!), and we try to sell it. And best of all, there is no exclusivity implied on either side - you are free to continue promoting and selling your book any way you see fit. How we go about selling it is up to us - we may do so through print-on-demand, distribution, social media, our online bookstore and even literary events we attend (which you may even be invited to attend with us). We sell your book at our own expense, and with our own stock.
We will never sell your book at less than the cover price unless previously agreed with you*. You will be paid an industry-standard royalty on all of our profits. Licencescan run for as long or as as short a time as both parties are happy, and you are free to cancel it at any time, without the need for a reason**.
Every agreement will be individual. If you would like to discuss allowing us licence to distribute your book, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
*After you have given notice to cancel, we reserve the right to clear our stock of your book at cost price. **Minimum 12 months' term must be completed before licence can be cancelled, after which we require a minimum of 3 months' notice, in order to retain the opportunity to clear our stock.
