Where is the Money for Authors Self Publishing Books?
Self publishing books without enough profit is not good business. We can help self-publishers to make profit in publishing. Oh, and our books are spectacular. We stand behind them, and there is more profit in publishing high-quality books.
Where Self Publishing Books can go Wrong
We know the names of the behemoth self-publishing platforms that drive authors through like herds of cattle. Open an author account. Then self-publish your book using print-on-demand. You don’t have to print many books, so the cost is low, right? They’ll distribute the books for you, right? Physical books in brick and mortar stores, right? Maybe the author is buying a package. Do you need your book proofread? How about a smashing cover design? What about marketing? How about doing your own distribution? What about ISBNs and barcodes, and then, who is the publisher? Are you paid only royalties? Do you need a website?
All of these things Cost Money and Minimize Author’s Profits.
There are a lot of variables in self publishing books, and there are absolutely some things that authors need to do. There are some other things that are either not necessary, or that can wait until a larger print run. How about authors who plan to go it alone? What will you do if you get a book that is poorly printed? The trick is knowing what to do, and who or what you can trust.

There is a Better way of Self Publishing Books
Over the years, we’ve seen what works and what doesn’t. The job of self publishing books is different for each situation. But, there is one thing we know for sure, and that is that the print-on-demand model is not as profitable as many would lead you to believe.
We offer no sales guarantees, but experience tells us that most on-demand self-publishers can make more money using our methods.
Another question we often get is, “Do you offer distribution?” No, we do not, deliberately, and for good reason. We print high-quality books. Period.
The minimum print run at Star Print Brokers is 1,000 hardcover books, or 2,000 softcover books. Most self-publishers print more. However, we have very few authors over the years that are left unsold books. Most of the time, authors are coming back to us for another print run. They often increase the quantity of printed books.
