You and your book may be eligible for Green Frog's 50% Royalty Plan, which includes all pre- and post-production steps, distribution and marketing. You must have an active social media presence to qualify. Visit Green Frog's Services for a description of the services included in the Royalty Plan.
Money trees that grow from books have robust author platforms on social media. Successful authors work every day to water and cultivate their money trees. Green Frog Publishing will support your social media platform by creating social media ads, sharing/retweeting your posts, and working with you to develop social media promotions and strategies. With the Royalty Plan, you put up your work, and we make it shine. From there, we work together to let as many readers as possible know why your book is worth reading.
Should one of the big five traditional publishing companies be interested in your manuscript—run fast, run far. With the growth of self- and independent publishing, the big five are hurting financially and are now investing more in real estate than in new books. If they want you, your money tree has strong roots.
While the big five will likely give you an advance, they will not give you direct access to your distributor sales; instead, they will give you access to their company website that shows sales. They will put you through a rigorous vetting process at your expense, and your contract will tell you exactly how many times you have to do what and when. If you want to cancel your contract, good luck with that. Finally, they will nickel and dime you to death for every photocopy and paperclip they use.
Green Frog Publishing's Royalty Plan gives you direct access to your distributor accounts, allows you to easily cancel your contract after two years if you are not profitable, and offers a partner with a vested interest in your success— photocopies and paperclips are on us! Let's work together to grow your book's money tree!
