We are Unique
At one time in our recent history, the only way for a book to get published was through traditional publishers.
Then Amazon hit the scene and self-publishing became easy; as a result, poorly written, poorly designed books became plentiful.
That’s where Prevail Press steps in.
Is Prevail Press a Vanity Press?
A common misperception is that any publisher who isn’t a traditional publisher must be a vanity press. Not so. Vanity Press charges exorbitant fees, claims to advertise (but rarely does), and makes the author buy a certain number of books, typically a 1,000 or more, that they’ll never sell. They also have a royalty structure like a traditional publisher. The author makes about 25 cents a book.
Prevail Press charges a flat fee ($100) that includes book design, book cover, an author’s page on our website, and a quality brand associated with your book. The author gets 90% of the royalty, Prevail Press gets 10%. That’s typically around $2.25 per book sold to the author.
Prevail Press serves as a quality check. We don’t accept every book, only well-written, quality books that fit our criteria.
How Does Prevail Press Make Money?
Truthfully, we should have filed as a non-profit company. Our goal is to help writers. We don’t make much money, just enough to pay for the essentials.
