Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) August 29, 2007
http://www.brioprint.com - BRIOprint, a leading book printing company providing hard cover and soft cover book printing, and other print related services, is reaching out to self-publishers who want to sell their books and turn a profit.
"How an author can spend 5, 10, 15 years, sometimes a lifetime composing his or her first book, and only make pennies on the dollar when it sells is beyond me," said William Reynolds, Managing Director at BRIOprint, in talking about the pains experienced by many authors who pursue more traditional publishing and distribution solutions. "We hear this sad refrain time and again, "Everybody is getting paid except for me, and I wrote it!" It just doesn't sit right with us, and so we've decided to do something about it."
BRIOprint recently updated their website, adding greater emphasis to their book printing solutions for self publishers. Offering 3 months of free warehousing services for eligible orders along with industry best pricing for fulfillment services, BRIOprint provides self publishers with valuable "post-print" solutions that help them manage cost, and devote more time to sales and marketing initiatives. Best of all, 100% of all proceeds from book sales belong to the authors; BRIOprint happily maintains a firm distinction between book manufacturer and publisher.
"There are plenty of companies lining up to eat that pie you baked, if you know what I mean. Our mission is simple: We offer our book printing services at a reasonable cost, so you can fulfill your dream of not only being an author, but a profitable one" said Reynolds. "And to that end, we'll give you knowledgeable advice, help with lay out, store your books, and ship them out to fill individual orders. At the end of the day, 100% of the monies earned from the sale of your book goes to you, the author. You wrote it, you deserve it."
With the plan to open an online bookstore, BRIOprint hopes to provide self-publishers with a better sales opportunity than currently available through other online bookstores such as Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.
"I spoke with a woman today who spent 25 years writing her first book of poetry. She trusted a publishing company to get her book printed, which they did at her expense, and now she is making .64 cents on every copy that currently sells for $18.95. Maybe this type of math works for J.K. Rowling and Stephen King, but for the more typical, modest-means author, this is the road toward keeping that day job. Hopefully, our bookstore will be a breath of fresh air that revives many a struggling writing career. And if just one author is ever able to say "Thank you, BRIOprint. You made it possible for me to continue writing," well I guess that will more than pay for the site."
