We give you tools to sell pre-orders for 30 days. We promote top performing proposals to our readers every week, via Reader's Picks. At the end of your campaign, Publishizer queries your proposal to publishers.

3: Connect with publishers

Publishizer sends publishers a weekly digest of proposals. If a publisher is interested, they message you to request further information, or to make you an offer.

4: Sign with a publisher and receive your funds

When you are ready to sign with a publisher, you receive funds via PayPal, minus a 30% fee. Publishizer does not take a commission on advances or royalties.
