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.

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
