Do I or Don't I....
Still wrestling with the idea of going with Pen It. I talked with a representative yesterday and she explained the marketing available.
They will list the book with Barnes and Noble, Amazon and Ingram Sparks. All of which I can do myself but am confused about the procedures involved in each one.
They will set up book sales and talks at libraries, bookstores and coffee shops; all of which as an inexperienced, I writer might have trouble doing.
Their website has reviews of their author books on it.
They will do artwork for posters, covers and bookmarks etc.
I would get 50% of royalties but that means if I list on Amazon, and I assume the others, Pen It gets 50% of the 40% they give. Which means I really get 20% of profits from sales.
I am so confused about what to do. One minute I say yes, sign, then the next I say no. Arrgghh!
Do I sign and let them take care of the details? Or do I do the work myself, as inexperienced as I am?
As a publisher they have access to more avenues and opportunities. See my dilemma?
