    Has anyone ever heard of this publishing company.

    Holy ****! I guess, if you have $500 to spare, it's an alternative to Lulu.

    And that's for the bare-bones, get-a-listing-on-Amazon package. http://www.tribute-books.com/pricingform.pdf

    Better hope you don't have more than 50 typos, because corrections are $2 apiece after that.

    Happy to answer any questions

    Hello,

    First off, I'd like to introduce myself since I am new to Absolute Write Water Cooler.

    I found this thread when it appeared in my Google Alerts.

    I am thrilled that people are discovering Tribute Books, but I would like to clear up a few points.

    We are an independent publisher more in line with the subsidy category. We offer authors a 10% royalty on the retail price for every copy sold through us.

    We do have start-up costs that fund author copies, cover design, interior page layout, ISBN, copyright, Library of Congress, press release distribution, book signing coordination, Amazon, Ingram & Baker & Taylor, video book trailer, eBook distribution, online reviewers, etc.

    We are definitely not like LuLu. We offer so much more. Please check out our Press section - http://www.tribute-books.com/press.html - we continually market our titles even several years after their initial release.

    We are dedicated to our authors. You are not just a number when you choose to work with us.

    Thank you,
    Nicole Langan

    Subsidy is just another name for vanity.

    QFT. I'd prefer my publisher to shoulder those costs.

    Has removed the "start-up costs", but royalties are now 50% of "net profit" (ebook).

    In '14, dropped publishing (and website), to focus on reviews and blog tours. http://tributebooksreviews.blogspot.com/
