Interview with Nicole of Tribute Books
Please join me in welcoming Nicole of Tribute Books to Socrates' Book Review Blog. This is a chance to learn a little more about her wonderful service.
1) What types of books do you represent?
In 2012, we are looking to represent ebook releases of young adult titles. Our preference is for damn good writing, the particular topic is secondary in importance. However, books written with a series in mind or those that delve into the paranormal will have a slight edge.
2) What do authors need to do to get started?
Manuscripts that have already been professionally edited will receive greater consideration. Our preference is to work with authors who have already been published through a royalty-paying press and who know the ins and outs of book promotion. An established social media platform is a must, and we will not consider writers who do not have a well-followed blog, Facebook page or Twitter account.
3) Do you plan to expand to other genres?
Not at this time, but it is always a possibility.
4) How does your program work?
Interested authors can submit their manuscripts via email to email@example.com. There will be no charge for the authors we select to work with, and they will receive 50% of the net profits of their ebook sales in quarterly royalty payments. We're looking for Microsoft Word documents with a maximum of 350 pages of text with no photos, charts, illustrations, graphs, etc.
5) Anything else you'd like to tell readers/authors/bloggers?
I'm a believer in doing what you love and working with like-minded people, when it's at all possible. I'm most excited about working with authors who enjoy promoting their book on a daily basis. Ones who know the ins and outs of the time and effort it takes to make a book a success because I'm ready and willing to work with them every step of the way.
We try to keep an active online presence with our web site (http://www.tribute-books.com/), Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Archbald-PA/Tribute-Books/171628704176), Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/TributeBooks) and blog (http://tributebooks.blogspot.com/). We'd love to have anyone who loves young adult literature to join us for the ride.
Thank you, Nicole! This was quite informative!
