WSIC EBooks was founded on the pretence that anyone who wants to should be able to have his or her works of literature published. Why should writers have to debase themselves by submitting their works of literature to one of the big publishing houses only to be told thank you but no thanks? The reason for the big publisher’s denial is not that they do not think the work of literature is unworthy but that they do not believe that they can make a significant amount of money by printing the literature.
We at WSIC EBooks Ltd. are of a different opinion. If you think, your work of literature is good enough to offer to the public than lets do it and we will endeavor to get it out there for you.
If you are lucky enough to be one of the few that have had their work of literature published then we say congratulations and we still offer you this opportunity to take your literature to the next step.
The next step towards getting your works published is yours. Here is your opportunity to break down the barriers that are keeping you from your dreams, hopes and aspirations.
See the following for what do you need to do next and/or what more do you need to know?
Q: How do you pay out royalties?
Royalties are usually paid out by issuing a cheque, however we have discovered that with some of our oversea authors it is better for them to request payment via moneygram. We are willing to do this, but as issuing a cheque cost the company $3.00 and moneygram cost $10.00 authors are required to bare the excess $7.00 cost.
Q: How will I know how many ebooks I sell?
Once you have made your first ebook sale, WSIC EBooks Ltd. will make two personalized web pages for you and you will be notified by email of these web pages and thereafter you will be able to visit these web pages to keep track of your sales and earnings.
Q: How should I format my manuscript?
1) Font = Times New Roman 12 point (never use multiple fonts), Single space
2) Use the enter button to start a new paragraph only. Otherwise let the text flow freely.
3) Send a cover art with the manuscript.
Not necessary to actually make the title page as we can do this.
Cover has to be 1,600 x 2,400 pixels. If you can send this size great, if not we will adjust.
4) Edit and re-edit your manuscript (remember we only do top level editing so the fine tuning is up to the author)
5) Manuscripts are not to be over 5 MB (you can check the size of your manuscript in its properties).
6) First line of the manuscript should be the name of the ebook.
7) Second line of the manuscript should be the author’s name.
8) Third line if using a pen name other than your real name should note “Pen Name = [whatever pen name you choose to write under]”
9) Fourth line should list two categories that ebook pertains to if known (eg. fiction adventure, Science fiction)
10) Fifth line should be some tags (words that people can use to search to get hits on your ebook) (eg. fiction, thriller, murder, inspirational, etc.)
11) Sixth line should be your sales blurb. (something like what you would find on the back cover of a soft cover book).
1) No Tabs
2) No header or footers
3) No text boxes. If something like a text box is really necessary copy the text box after it has been created into an editor program and make a GIF file out of it.
4) Do not put page number on a table of content for page numbers mean nothing in the ebook world.
5) Do not put the name of the ebook in all CAPITALS as ebook retailers do not like this.
