Brilliant Idea Books compiles a “start to finish” publishing plan for your book project. Our many years of experience in the book business taught us that planning and preparation are essential for any successful book publication. Almost every bad self-published book has suffered from the “I need this book out – yesterday!” disease. And while self-publishing is significantly faster than traditional publishing, it doesn’t mean hasty. Going with experienced book people who know what it takes to publish well will help pay-off with a great book package.
We are a hybrid model of publishing
Here’s how we differ from the traditional trade publishing model:
|Brilliant Idea Books
Our fees cover early development of publishing strategy, working towards and confirming book package, bringing in dedicated freelance services for book including writing (if needed), editing, cover and interior design, printing, and appropriate marketing depending on needs of client. All freelance contractors bill the client directly.
Brilliant Idea Books produces a detailed quote for both our unique service and details of each freelance quote. Our services from planning, execution, and delivery of the book range from $10,000 to $20,000. Freelance contractor costs extra.
Once your book is released, your journey doesn’t end there
One of the more brilliant side effects of working with us (and one you simply won’t find anywhere else), is how Brilliant Idea Books and the Seventh Avenue Literary Agency can works together.
