Our System & Services

Our System:

Many standard publishers require large investments ($15,000 – $40,000) at some stage in the pre-release process from all but the most established authors. They then proceed to pay authors 5-15% of the price of every book sold. This does not leave the publisher with 80-90% of the money, as there are printing, distribution costs, and assorted marketing fees. However, there is still a substantial percentage that is used to pay the massive infrastructure and overhead fees that the larger companies have, which translates into less and less money being spent on the author’s book, or going into the author’s pocket.

Kingdom Rule Publishing is a tiered publishing company. We offer a range of services and levels of involvement and commitment. We provide full publishing services similar to that of a larger publishing company. However we also provide assisted self-publishing services. If you would like to self-publish, but you want a professional cover design and layout, we can help you. If you already have a cover and layout, but you would like marketing, a website and distribution, we can help you. No matter what stage of the process you are in, Kingdom Rule Publishing can help you make your project a beautiful and professional product that can compete with anything else in the marketplace.

Our Services:

We highly recommend that any authors who have published before contact our office directly for rate quotes and specifics relevant to whichever stage of the process you are in. If you have never published before go through the information on our getting started page, and listen to the informational download.

Once you have gone through the information on the getting started page, contact us. An agent can explain any questions you may have on the following information.

The simplest form of publishing a new book is with a package. WIth one of the following packages, Kingdom Rule can begin the process of taking you from aspiring author to best-selling author. Each service is broken down and explained in detail below.

Basic Publishing

This service generates an ISBN for the work. The work is either posted on CafePress.com with Print-on-Demand services or on Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble.com for bookseller-assisted author to customer sale. At least fifty (50) books are printed and distributed in the following manner:

  • The Author receives twenty-five (25) copies
  • The Publisher holds ten (10) copies for marketing and sale suggestion purposes
  • Fifteen (15) copies are sent out, seeded into potential markets or local stores.

On-Demand printing services are set up, allowing the publisher to fill orders taken online.
* This price may vary if the page count is considerably above average or specifics of printing produce greater printing costs.

Custom Cover Design

Kingdom Rule Publishing will create a professional custom design cover for the work. [This may exceed the proposed amount if the Author requests specialty images that require additional costs to obtain.]

Editorial Services

Our editorial staff will examine the Work for grammatical and spelling errors. The work will be typeset for print.

Editorial Evaluation

Our expert editors will analyze the author’s work for larger factors including: flow, style issues, consistency, character and plot development, and sales & marketability suggestions.

Retail Distribution $600 – $30,000

Retail Distribution is currently available on a local and regional level. The price varies based upon the number and type of stores sought, and market requirements.

Cooperative Advertising *special*

Kingdom Rule will generate advertising material from posters, ads and shelf displays to radio or television commercials.

Author Web Page Design

Kingdom Rule will design and build a personal web page for the author. It will have 4-6 pages and will contain additional information about the Work, and a personal online store for publisher or author sales of the work.

Enhanced Marketing Programs *special*

Kingdom Rule has various methods for spreading the name and work of the author out among the work’s target audience and the general public. When an author chooses this service, it puts the full weight of Kingdom Rule’s sister company CFI Marketing behind the project. Research is done on the most effective methods of dissemination for that type of work, and actions are taken to spread the name of the author and fame of the work.
