Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my page.
“Everyone has a book in them”, or so the saying goes and with your help I am looking to prove this.
With your help you will not only be helping me to create my dream business but also helping countless new writers looking for their chance to shine.
The cornerstone of Valentine Publishing is that everyone deserves a chance and that authors are paid a fair and majority share of royalties, at least 75% of the profits.
Imagine how many books get rejected every year and imagine how many of those could be the next Harry Potter sensation that turned a generation onto reading. You may be thinking, ‘if a book is that good a publisher will snap it up…’ but remember JK was rejected by twelve publishers before getting her big break!
What is Valentine publishing?
Simply put Valentine Publishing is a new publishing house that does not require perspective authors to have a literary agent.
During these uncertain times and with many people staying at home the number of new writers has been blooming meaning more competition for literary agents.
Many new writers find it difficult to be signed by a literary agent that will help them to get their book published, the odds of new writers being accepted by a literary agent is 1 in 6000 approx. With Valentine Publishing we accept manuscripts without the need for a literary agent and work closely with the writer to progress their work to be ready for publishing.
Valentine Publishing will publish books in three formats.
· Printed Book
What will the funds be used for?
The funds that I am trying to raise will be used to get the first set of manuscripts published. The breakdown of what needs to be bought is:
· ISBN numbers and barcodes
· Copy Editor work
· Cover design artist
· Systems and software
Thank you all so much for in advance for your support
stay safe and stay well
