What is the quality of a book produced by the EBM?
There is no difference between a book produced by the EBM and a book from a large press. Many are already shelved in bookstores. They are indistinguishable in appearance and quality.
Is printing locally affordable?
Yes. Authors that publish with us receive 18-58% of the jacket price for every book sold. This is very generous compared to traditional large publishing houses. In addition, pricing is not dependent on quantity. Whether printing one or one thousand, the cost per book printed is the same.
What Price will my book sell for?
We use recommended jacket prices within industry norms. A 280 page novel should be priced at $15.95.
