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.
