New Self Publish Blue Leaf

I try and keep up on all new ideas for self publishing and I came across this article at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/46670997 TheWriteDeal eBook publisher has introduced Blue Leaf self-publishing series to begin later this month. I signed up for membership and downloaded their guide for submissions to Blue Leaf. The Style Guide. The first thing I noticed was that authors would submit a manuscript for acceptance. Feels a bit like traditonal publishing. Submission are by email.

If the WriteDeal publishes your work (if) they design the book cover or if they think the authors own book cover is “intriguing” they’ll accept it. Special note: This could solve my book cover needs. I’d be interested to see what their book covers look like.

If The WriteDeal accepts the author’s maunuscript for publication he/she would be contacted and be asked to sign a contract, traditonal? I don’t know yet. It’s brand new, maybe the first of it kind, so what benefits would the author get besides having their editors approve the manuscript for publication. Could it be possible that due to the editorial and acceptance process the author has a better chance of selling more of their work, something to think about. Are they suggesting their serivce will produce higher quality self published ebooks?

The author would also be selecting payment options, not sure if that meant the author pays to get their work published or how they want to recieve their royalties. 60% is what they advertise.

In addition, The WriteDeal introduces the author with high quality works to traditional print publishers. Like I said its new, it’s interesting and I’ll wait for the reviews. So, what do you think?

    Me again, The WriteDeal will have exclusive rights for six months, after the six months the author can sell it elsewhere. Currently Amazon’s Kindle Select has a 90 day deal, but without editorial acceptance. There’s much more to learn about this new self publishing adventure.

My dream is to become a professional bullshit artist. Or, as others prefer to call them, a novelist. I know, a highly unoriginal and unattainable goal. What's my back-up plan? Ninja fairy. Here's to being disgustingly unoriginal!
