Publishing Options

TEACH Services offers a variety of publishing options.

As you will notice, each level has additional features in conjunction to the services provided.

The following prices are for a basic black-and-white, text-only book of around 35,000 words (which would be approximately 120 pages in a 5.5” x 8.5” format) and—if included—basic editing and layout, without fact checking, indexing, pull quotes, footnotes, pictures, or illustrations. Publishing under the Aspect imprint offers standard wholesale distribution only, whereas publishing under the TEACH Services imprint entitles you to marketing under a specific genre or to the Adventist community.

In order to qualify for publishing under the TEACH Services imprint, your manuscript must espouse Adventist beliefs, discuss topics relevant to Adventists, or, in the case of biographies, detail a life of ministry and service or document a conversion story. Books that discuss biblical ideas or insights must be reviewed and approved by at least two Adventist ministers, retired or currently serving. Likewise books that recommend medical treatment, diet, or nutrition must be reviewed and approved by at least two medical doctors or dietitians. It is the author’s responsibility to secure such an approval before the book goes to press.

ISBN/LOC Numbers & BISAC Code
The publishing industry uses the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) to trace your title back to your publisher. TEACH Services will do this for you and will also register your title with R. R. Bowker, a bibliographic tool for libraries, booksellers, and publishers. We will also obtain a LOC (Library of Congress) catalog number for your book, and assign a BISAC (Book Industry Standards and Communications) topical code.

Book Cover Design
For the BASIC publishing package, we will design a 4-color cover using a stock photograph, the title and subtitle of your book, the author's name, and supplied back cover copy. For BETTER, BEST, and PRO services, our book designer will create a customized 4-color cover to grab the buyer's attention. This includes the back cover, which can include your photograph, a short author biography, BISAC topical codes, and ISBN barcode. Special art or illustrations can be supplied at additional cost.

Royalties
Our authors normally receive a 10 to 12 percent royalty for ALL books that we sell, based on the Suggested Retail Price (SRP) of each binding and 25 to 50 percent royalty on each e-Book format. For instance, when we sell 1,000 copies of a $10.00 SRP book with a 70% discount we would pay the author $1,000.00 in royalties. –MORE–

Rights Management
As a TEACH author, we will actively look for ways to promote your book including: Foreign translations, Magazine syndication, Radio interviews, Audio book creation, Quotes & Reprints, Fair Use regulation, etc. There are no additional fees for this service as all costs are paid by the organization requesting their use.

Website Ordering
We will submit your title to AspectBooks.com and scores of other online bookstores, allowing millions to potentially purchase your book. In addition, for the BETTER and the PRO levels, your title will be upgraded to placement on the TEACHServices.com site that markets specifically to Adventists. This allows retail and wholesale customers to securely purchase your books.

Domestic Distribution
TEACH Services partners with the largest distributor of books in the world. Your title is listed in their catalog for 1 year, meaning that your book is a part of their distribution network that includes 39,000 book retailers, librarians, and international accounts. There is a small "Annual Catalog Fee" (see below) per printed binding style for each additional year you want that edition to remain in the catalog.

International Distribution
Besides our relationships inside the US/Canada borders, our partnership with various book printers and distributors around the world gives us access to their printing and shipping facilities. Currently we service 220 countries through their facilities located in England, France, Australia, Germany, Italy, India, South Korea, China, Poland, and Russia.

E-Books
We partner with Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo, Google, and others to offer our e-Books in their special formats, and in full color on those devices that support color. We have partnerships with around 50 e-Book distributors around the world. Once uploaded, your book can become a part of their catalog of available e-Books.

 

Layout and Design
Our design team will take your body and cover text and lay it out and prepare it for press, following all printing standards to create a professional end product, including... –MORE–

 

Electronic Proof
You will receive an electronic proof to review before your book is sent to the printer. We want to make sure you are happy with the finished product.

 

Creative Back Cover Copy
Our Editing Department will draft back cover copy that will summarize your book and entice readers to purchase it. We will also include the ISBN and barcode and BISAC topical code for your title.

 

Professional Editing
Our Editing Department will bring a fresh perspective to your book by editing your manuscript while retaining your style and voice. Our editors will ensure that your book follows publishing industry styles and standards and is free of grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors. Your editor can also check all Bible texts and Spirit of Prophecy references to ensure their accuracy. Professional editors approach your manuscript differently than an English teacher or friend, looking for consistency, clarity, wordiness, and the right tone for your target audience. This step will polish your manuscript.

   

Wholesale Telemarketing
Personal phone calls make all the difference in sales. We will personally call our top wholesale customers to announce your title when released and explain to each buyer the benefits of offering your book to their customers. Special offers and/or discounts would be offered at this time.

   

Personal Blog (Website)
On request, we will create a personal blog to help promote your title. In addition, we will help you route your own personal domain name to your site, helping you bring traffic (and viewers) to your blog.

     

Specialty Marketing to the Adventist Community
We will market your book specifically to the Adventist community, ministries, ABC's, and special events such as ASI conventions.

     

Facebook Social Media Advertising
TEACH Service titles enjoy promotion on our company’s Facebook fan page along with a major advertising campaign of your title to targeted Adventist interest groups reaching upwards to 140,000 viewers.

     

Special Promotion
Our PRO publishing level gives you a paperback and various e-book formats, but it also gives you a special promotional mailing of 50 copies of your paperback edition to the top Adventist resellers (i.e. ABC's) and select ministries over a 90 day period.

     

Wholesale E-mail Promotion
We will actively promote your book to the Adventist Book Centers and our other wholesale customers through e-mail communication.

     

Retail E-mail Promotion
We will feature your book to thousands of opt-in retail customers who have asked to hear of our new releases through our monthly e-mail newsletter.

     

News Release
We will write and distribute a news release about your book (when email addresses are supplied) and send where applicable to places like your local newspaper, alma mater, workplace, or Union Conference papers. This helps to spread the word about your book in your local community.

     

Bookmarks
We will print 1,000 full color bookmarks and provide you with 750 for you to distribute to your local church, family, friends, and anywhere else you choose. We will use the rest in orders that we ship to our customers or visit our booths at conventions.
