THE LIONESS PUBLISHING MODEL
At Lioness, we believe that you deserve to be supported as you get your book into the world. You have an important voice and a vital contribution to make, and we want to make that happen. We are here to support you as you shoot for the best sales, highest royalties, and longest shelf life.
Most importantly, we want to make sure that the book launches you as an author-expert in your field. The book is a crucial tool to help you sound your voice and build your reputation as someone worth listening to.
We at Lioness have a unique model for publishing. We want you to get paid, we want you to have control over your sales and marketing, and we want to support you all the way through.
What you get:
* You receive ALL royalties on your book sales.
* You have full control over marketing plans
* You determine the timetables for launching
* You decide how, when, and where the book sells, and for how long
* You can also sell and distribute on your own, receiving larger profits
You pay Lioness based on what kinds of services you want and need from us. For instance, you can decide for yourself how much marketing assistance you need from us -- one meeting, ongoing coaching, or full involvement. You can also decide how much editing you need -- whether you want to submit the manuscript complete and fully edited, or whether you want us to do that work for you.
Below is an outline of the fee structure.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
Topics: Topics can be anything aimed at making the world a more humane and compassionate place, such as issues of gender equality, racial equality, disabilities, LGBTQ issues, sexuality, the environment, reducing violence, alleviating poverty and hunger, promoting peace, sex trafficking, sexual abuse, and more. If you have a topic not listed here, or you are not sure that this is you, schedule a chat and we can figure it out together.
Genre: Lioness Books has a preference for non-fiction, including memoir, journalism, biography, sociology/anthropology, politics, science, history, economics, education, etc. Lioness Books is also willing to consider fiction and poetry if it is aimed at making the world a more compassionate place and establishing the author as an expert in a field. We are also open to cross-genres and to books that do not fit easily into a box. If you aren't sure, or you don't see your issue listed here, contact us and we can discuss your topic and see whether we are a match.
Length and format: Manuscripts can be between 50,000-100,000 words and must be submitted as a Word document, 12-point font, using Headings and Styles.
If you do not have a complete manuscript, or you have a manuscript that needs work, contact us about our services in Development Editing and Ghostwriting. If you don't know how to use styles, then we highly recommend getting training in that. We can help you.
