FastPencil Publisher Account
Publish books and eBooks under your own custom imprint.
Who should sign up?
Publisher Accounts are for professionals that are tech savvy and have their own Publishing business. You will be expected to set up your new account as a publishing imprint business using our platform. Our software handles writing, collaborating, editing, template design, publishing, printing and distribution. With the Publisher Account, our system will also allow you to have your own Imprint information and logo on the book and cover, as well as your own ISBN and meta data.
Why should I sign up?
You get all the services we offer our Individual FastPencil Authors, plus your own imprint name listed with Ingram so that your book will appear under that name on Amazon, BN, and other 3rd party sites.
How long is the Publisher Account maintained?
The Publisher Account is maintained as long as your book is listed in our FastPencil catalog. The first year catalog fee is included when you publish. The catalog fee to maintain your book is $19/year per title.
How much will my book cost me?
The author-cost of the book is determined by the page count and trim size. As a Publisher you only pay the manufacturing cost per book for Author orders.
What will my royalty rate be?
Because you are opting for the Publisher Account, your company will enjoy the maximum royalty payments: 80% Net. Check out our FAQs about royalties for more details.
Where does the custom imprint get distributed?
Print-on-demand books get inserted into the catalogs at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Ingram, Baker and Taylor and the FastPencil Marketplace.
EBooks are distributed through Apple iBooks, Amazon Kindle, Barnes&Noble Nook, Ingram Digital Network, and the FastPencil Marketplace.
What Marketing is included in the Publisher Account?
FastPencil allows you to customize your User Account Page with your Publishing imprint information and links to your web sites. Every publication also gets it’s own details page, where readers can buy the book. We also provide a "BookBuy” widget so you can place this snippet of code on your blog or website to offer your customers an easy one-click BUY option. These are automatic perks that are included in your account.
We also offer add-ons for Publishers like Custom Book Pages with Social Media Integration, PR Packages and more.
