Benefits for publishing with DBP are far beyond what many publishers offer today.
We do screen all manuscripts submitted to us. And unfortunately, we cannot take all the manuscripts that are submitted.

I'm honestly rather frustrated. I was offered a contract by these people and even though the royalty rate seemed sketchy, it wasn't 'that bad' until I took a look at some of the other works they had published. The writing is utterly atrocious! I feel like not only did this company really suck at editing, it accepted writers who couldn't even give the preliminary round of editing to their own work
Publisher agrees to pay to the Author, a royalty of 25% of total net price in United States dollars (USD) on all sales of the Work sold untilthe first $1000 (USD) has been reached. A royalty of 50% total net price in United States dollars thereafter
Authors are required to maintain a website. Free websites are available, so this can be done at no cost to the Author.
The Publisher reserves the right to advertise however they deem appropriate.
The Publisher will advertise the book. The Author agrees to self-promote this book. Author understands without self-promotion, their workmay not sell as well, if at all, as it would with self-promotion.
Is this normal, or am I being ripped off? That means that I will only be getting 25% royalties until more than 100 books are sold. The book will be basically an ebook with Print On Demand option.
Is it me or are they basically telling me that the book might not sell and it will be my fault if that happens?
And I suppose the first part means that it's up to me to create a web-page, right?
I don't know if I'm biased because of everything I've read about the publishing house, but I'm thinking of declining the contract. I mean, since they don't guarantee me a proper advertisement, the book will be published with a P.O.D. term and the royalties are less than what CreateSpace offers, I'd be better off publishing it on my own, right?
