Publishizer matches authors with publishers during pre-orders campaigns. It’s like Kickstarter meets Tinder, for publishing.
Publishizer wants to create a platform that publishers might use to find new books, a sort of literary minor league stadium for hunting up new talent.
Publishizer guides you step-by-step through writing and submitting a professional proposal. Non-fiction does not require a finished manuscript, however, fiction requires a finished manuscript if you want to attract a traditional publisher.
You will launch a 30-day campaign, and offer readers bonuses when they pre-order copies. Publishizer promotes the top performing proposals weekly to our list of readers.
At the end of your campaign, Publishizer queries your proposal to a targeted list of publishers. Publishers express interest, and you can contact them directly.
You select the best deal for your book. Publishizer does not take a fee on advances or royalties. We only keep 30% of funds raised during your campaign. You receive your payment via PayPal.
No, there are no costs to launch a campaign, and we don’t take a commission on advances or royalties. We keep our lights on with a one-time 30% campaign fee.
You will need to submit a book proposal (minimum 1000 words), including writing samples. We recommend adding a cover and a video to attract readers.
No, we cannot. We guarantee that your proposal will get in front of all the publishers in your category/genre. We cannot guarantee they will offer you a deal.
At a minimum, your proposal will be get in front to at least 50 publishers in your category/genre. More pre-orders attracts interest from more publishers.
No, we don’t. Authors are responsible for marketing their campaign, to show publishers that you have a community of readers who want your book.
