Why Publish with Black Point Books:
In the age of self publishing and publishers folding and not paying their authors, why bother to submit your book? Why not just bypass the publisher and upload your own book to Amazon?
First of all, Black Point Books will do the work involved in publishing a book, that includes top notch editing. We believe that when books are self published, one can never be sure of the quality of that book. Has it been proofed? Has it been edited, not only for grammar but for content? I have spoken to many readers who buy a book only to find it isn't very good. How do we control for that? When you sign with Black Point Books, you are assured that your book won't go out there unless we go over it with a fine toothed comb. Not only that, Black Point Books pay their authors. We do not hide anything. Before we get paid, you get paid. That is our policy and will always be. So if you think you have what we want and you want in on the ground floor, then come grow with us. We intend to be a presence on the web.
