Hey guys! So I know a lot of you are authors, and I know a lot of you have been keeping an eye out on all the changes coming to the RAD site. We’re sorry it’s been taking us a while, but we’re trying to take it all one step at a time. You know how it is.
For now, I want to talk to you a bit about one of our newest pages, here on our site:
We designed author services around you, authors. We know it’s not always easy to do all the things you need to do in a day, and we’re also very used to doing anything and everything that has to do with publication and maintaining your audience. We’re actually pretty good at it. *wink*
We’re now offering assistance for everything author, from cover design to researching your next story, all because we’re here to help you, authors.
Here’s the gist of what we’re ready and waiting to help you with:
- Book cover design
- Book jacket copy
- Paperback interior formatting
- eBook interior formatting
- Story research
- Promotional materials: memes, promo videos, audio teasers
- Blog help
- Facebook startup assistance
- Squarespace website startup assistance, design + maintenance
- Newsletter creation + maintenance
- Stocking your book in the RAD Store
- Reviews from RAD editors/authors
- Tracking contests + sending out prizes
- Business training
- Copyright filing
- And much more!
Most services are pay by the hour, for whatever you need—so you won’t end up paying for things that you don’t need our help with. That means if all you need is some help keeping track of your contests or you just need someone to help you research your next story, that’s all you’ll be paying for.
We’re here to help you, whether you publish with us or not.
Best part? If all you need is a little thing, like a book cover or help in filing your copyright, we offer competitive flat-rate pricing so you’re never overpaying for what you need.
Pretty cool, right?
But that's not all.
We've also added a new page called Make Me RAD, where you'll find all the information you need to get started in getting your book stocked in the RADstore.
But I'm sure you're wondering why you'd want to do that, when we're still a small store. Well, I have an answer for you.
RAD Writing, though small right now, is growing. We're getting bigger every day, and that means every day, we're getting more and more traffic on our website. With all these new changes we've made, we've been drawing in more and more people—and that's more and more potential sales for your book, if it's stocked in our store.
Even better, we don't ask any commission. All you'll pay is a low monthly rate, based on the number and page count of the titles you stock in our store, plus a portion of the shipping costs every time one of your books is sold.
Trust me, that's a lot lower than you'll pay anywhere else.
All this is because we want to help you, authors, to get your book into as many hands as possible. We're here for you, whether you're published with us or not. We're here to make your book shine, and we're ready to help in whatever way you need.
