Who should sign up?
The Wavecrest imprint is for professional writers who are ready to embrace the publishing revolution through greater transparency, higher royalty splits, instant file conversion, and faster speed-to-market.
Moving toward a more sophisticated brand with this imprint, these authors are looking for bookstore exposure. Since this brand is meant to be sold and distributed through our pre-established sales channels, excellence in quality is our first priority.
Why should I sign up?
Our software handles content management and conversions, design layouts, printing and distribution. Wavecrest authors receive bundled service packages, with quality-control in mind.
How long is the book in the Wavecrest catalog?
The book listing is maintained as long as your book is listed in our FastPencil catalog. The first year of the catalog fee is included when you publish. The catalog fee to maintain your book is $49/year.
How much will my book cost me?
Your book cost is determined by the custom contract signed by the author and FastPencil. But in general, the author cost of the book will be determined by the tool once the manuscript is loaded. There is a manufacturing cost that is considered into the author cost.
What will my royalty rate be?
Your royalty rate is determined by the contract signed by the author and FastPencil.
Where does the Wavecrest imprint get distributed?
Outside of Amazon.com for printed books, and the Amazon Kindle Store and BarnesandNoble.com for ebooks, it’s important to remember that FastPencil has limited control over which bookstore retailers actually stock and/or list your ISBN title, i.e. we place your title in catalogs, and it’s up to the retailers to fetch and list them for sale in their store and on their websites.
However, when we push the books to wide distribution, the printed book is blasted to hundreds of 3rd Party Retailers like Alibris.com, Baker and Taylor and the Ingram network.
Apple iBookStore, Amazon Kindle Store, Barnes&Noble.com, Borders.com, Kobobooks.com, Powells.com, Ebookmall.com, Diesel-ebooks.com, Booksonboard.com, Lulu.com, Lybrary.com, and the
