AuthorsAlley™ offers a truly unique publishing model that does not exist anywhere else. Our company is different from just about anywhere else in the aspect that our distribution process does not take a percentage of your book sales away from the author. Done are the days where authors only receive 5-40% of the profits for each book they sell. AuthorsAlley understands that as an author you have done the hard part and it is YOUR book after all. We do not take control of your book through the ISBN unlike most of our competitors and do not hide fine print locking you into ridiculous contracts impossible to escape from. Authors will ALWAYS receive 100% of the book sale using www.authorsalley.com.
For those who do not want to do anything but tell people where to buy your book and collect money in your bank account, you are in the right place. We even offer you the opportunity to receive your own personal domain name which serves as your author page. This truly unique publishing feature is what sets us apart from anybody else. You as the author can save thousands of dollars by not paying someone else to design you a webpage that can handle payments and track inventory. And on top of that, pay you 100% of the royalties from each book sold. Instead of telling people to buy your book on Amazon and receiving only 40% of your money back, tell them to buy your book at your own personal author’s page at Author’s Alley. Our system is perfect for celebrities, authors who travel a lot, motivational speakers, CEO’s ; or just anyone with a dream.
Our standard distribution fees are for shipping and handling. We use USPS priority 2 day shipping for all orders unless otherwise specified by author or customer. For standard orders using USPS Priority Mail, an additional 5.00 dollars per order will be required of any author using AuthorsAlley. This includes the shipping cost and the cost to store the books, individually shrink wrap each book to ensure safe delivery, and keep track of sales, profits, and inventory. 5.00 dollars will be required for each book shipped. UPS and FedEx may be requested by either the author or purchaser, but the price will increase from 5.00 to 9.00 per book shipped. These terms are all for shipments within the United States. Canada and International shipments will incur their respective costs according to USPS International and Canada shipping prices. If one customer purchases or would like to purchase more than 10 books at one time, please contact Support at email@example.com and a lower bulk rate can be negotiated. We are flexible in our terms and offer a new way of business that has not been done yet in Publishing.
Once a customer purchases a book from www.authorsalley.com, that book order will be fulfilled and shipped no later than 2 days from time of order Monday to Friday. Most orders will ship out the same day of purchase and we will work hard to ensure the customer receives the book as soon as possible. If you require faster service or have rush orders to fulfill, please call Support at 813-886-0065 x108 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange expedited service. Any further questions can be directed to email@example.com . We know that your events, book signings, speaking events, and promotional appearances only truly work if you have books with you. We work with you to ensure you have those books when you need them. Many times a lower rate can and will be given for circumstances like this or requests for larger quantities. Our company and distribution is not set up to nickel-and-dime the customer and to turn a profit, but instead to ship books to the customer and author as quickly as possible.
