What You Need to Know About Me:
What is the Author Collective?

We are a collaborative of self-published or self-promoted authors with a common goal. We want to vigorously promote our books and get them in the hands of people who can purchase in large quantities without the perils of the mega sized publishing houses.

Who can join this group?

Any published author who currently has an inventory of printed books or one who is able to get their books P. O. D.

What does it cost to join the group?

The fee for an entire year is $375.00 for the first title and $65.00 for each additional title thereafter. This means an author with two titles would pay $375 + $65 or $440. An author with four titles would pay $375 + $195 for the three additional titles or $570. If you have only one title your cost is $375. Each member must also send us twelve copies of each novel or publication entered into the collective. These sample copies will not be sold, but be used solely for display purposes.

Is the fee paid monthly or is it for the entire year.

The cost covers twelve months and is renewable on the anniversary date. It is a one time cost that covers each convention that The Author Collective attends. There are no recurring fees or charges once an author becomes a member.

What are the benefits of membership?

The staff of The Author Collective will aggressively seek to promote and sell your book to book stores, museums, libraries, school systems and other large quantity purchasers. This gives you the author the free time to do what you do best… write! We bare the cost of attending tradeshows, conventions, book fairs and trunk shows specifically targeting the literary trade. The attendees at these events are generally decision makers for their respective companies. All authors dream of showcasing their novels to the persons who can with the stroke of a pen, place on the shelves of institutions around the country their work. Our goal is to seek out these persons and do just that with our member’s works.

How many books will The Author Collective purchase from me?

When we receive your 12 sample copies The Author Collective will go to work for you. We present and display your book at trade shows and solicit orders. Once we have taken an order for your book we will contact you and make a purchase. The number we buy depends on the number of orders that is taken for your book, though our minimum purchase is 12 books per title. In some cases if a book sells extremely well, we may purchase extra copies to hold in inventory.

What if my book is not yet printed?

If you have a manuscript and is looking to get your book printed and into circulation, the Author Collective is for you! Joining gives you access to all of the free services that we offer our members. The good part is that your membership will not expire until one year after we have helped you get your book completed. This means that for no additional cost we will help you get discounts on an ISBN, copyright protection, editors and proofreaders, graphic persons and printers. Once your book is printed and ready for sale we start your yearly membership.

When am I paid for the books that you purchase from me?

We will not ask you for consignment. Once we receive your books we will pay you immediately. We will not expect you to accept returns because unlike the mega-publishing houses, we don’t offer consignment or returns to our clientele.

How do I get started?

Just give us a call and say “I’m ready to become a member of The Author Collective.”

Thank you for your interest.

"I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition."

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
We have lost numerous members because of the amount of 'friend' mail they instantly receive. This Hurts Everyone.
Spam is unsolicited advertising, whether it is posted as comments on other members' pages or is emailed for marketing purposes.

Please be considerate. Post your advertisement in the proper Articles/Forum or Group. There are free classifieds on the Pages tab. You can post your information on your profile and even update your blog as often as you like.

We are not into censorship, so please don't make us ask you to leave. Be kind and unselfish - don't spam.
