Publication Facts To Remember
Redwolf Publishing will consider all book genre submissions, fiction and non-fiction, of any length. The industry standard for children’s picture books average 25-30 pages and most other book types contain a minimum of 4,000 words. If your manuscript is accepted and signed to a contract, it will first enter our pre-production phase. During this phase, a deadline will be set for the submission of all materials needed, if applicable, including pictures, graphics, illustrations, cover art and a final draft. Your book will then be ready to enter the production process where it will be assigned to a senior editor for evaluation.
Books will also be assigned to a designer who must format the layout of the text according to industry standards. Once completed, the designer will create and format the cover image of your book. Both the text proofs and cover of your book will then be emailed to you for review. A 72 hour window will be reserved to notify us of any publisher errors you discover, as outlined in the contract. Once your manuscript has cleared the review period, it will be finalized, and no more changes will accepted. This entire process may be completed within a few weeks, but most often, publication takes an eight to sixteen week period from the signing of the contract. The digital format of your book will be released first and available to consumers immediately.
Redwolf Publishing offers authors an initial 10% royalty rate for distribution sales of their first book and a 40% royalty rate from all direct sales. Authors will also benefit from a 60% discount on their own personal book purchases. The royalty rate of succeeding book titles may increase up to 15% with possible advance incentives. We assume all expenses, financial risks, and provide unmatched global distribution.
Under federal law, anything original is considered copyrighted the moment it is written, so application for copyright is unnecessary. However, Redwolf Publishing requires that all works be officially registered with the Library of Congress before publication.
