My publisher, SBPRA, just shared a letter to potential authors, which I am now sharing with anyone interested. For the record, SBPRA published my first children’s book, Santa’s Birthday Gift, in 2009 – and has published all my subsequent 14 books which have now won 98 Awards (and counting). If anyone is interested in having a potential book evaluated, please consider this offer..
“Hi there! My name is Lynn Eddy and I am the Contract Manager at Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency (SBPRA). I’ve been with the company for 16 years and have seen the industry change and grow so we’ve adjusted our publishing contracts to fit what authors like you need.
We know it’s important to have your book listed on not just Amazon but also Barnes and Noble, Target, Waterstones, Chapters/Indigo, and Wal-Mart.
We know it’s important to give readers options as we’ve seen eBook sales hitting record numbers since the start of the pandemic with no slowdown in sight so we’ve started offering Kindle in contracts so authors can benefit from the most sales possible.
We know audiobooks are also hugely popular now and we have recently started an audiobook division. We are excited to bring this option to our authors in the most affordable way.
We have always had editing services, professional layout and cover designs, complementary author webpages and press releases, but we want to go the extra mile for you so that we can fill all of your publishing needs.
We know it’s important for authors to have a single point of contact throughout the publishing process and I have proudly been that person for hundreds of authors.
I’d like to look over your manuscript to see if we’d be a good fit for as your publisher. Could you please send it to me in a Word document? I will reply with a critique of your work and hopefully a contract offer.
I look forward to seeing your book!
