Let Us Publish Your Book
Apollo Publications Manuscript Submission
Published Authors tend to sell more books than Self-Published Authors
The difference between being published verses self-publishing is that if we publish you it cost you nothing, if you self-publish you pay for everything.
Self-publishing can be expensive and it is not for everyone, especially for a first book. If we like your manuscript, we will give you the option of self-publishing or having us publish it for you. When we publish your book, we cover all the cost associated with: Publishing, Formatting, Printing, Distribution, and Promotion. The only piece we don’t do is the copyedit. Submit your manuscript for review; there is no cost or no obligation. Our contract is simple: you always retain the copyright to your work; you typically get a five-year exclusive deal; you earn 10 percent of the net sales for the first 1,000 copies and 15 percent after that for your first book, with subsequent book starting at 15 percent. If you are interested in submitting your manuscript for consideration, full contract details are available upon request. All manuscripts must be submitted in MS Word or PDF format.
To submit your manuscript for consideration, please send an email to Sales:firstname.lastname@example.org

You will receive a second email when the review is under way, and you will receive a final email stating whether your manuscript has been accepted or declined. If it is declined, we will explain why. The reviewer may email you if additional information is required. Due to the volume of manuscripts we receive, this process can take several weeks.
