FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Self-Publishing?
Self-publishing is the publication of any book by its author without the active involvement of an established/traditional publisher. The author is in control of the entire publication process, including cover design and interior layout, book formats (Paperback/E-book), price-control, global/national distribution, cost-effective marketing strategies, and public relation services.
Is Aelin a traditional or a Self-Publishing house?
Aelin Publishers is a self-publishing house that offers the above-mentioned services (answer to Question 1), giving you full authority and complete control over the publication of your brainchild.
How many copies of my book will you print?
We keep 100 copies in stock. If you want extra copies apart from the promised free copies mentioned in the packages, you can purchase it from us at a highly discounted rate.
How long will it take for my book to be printed?
Right after the services opted for, have been carried out like editing, formatting, and layout, the book will be sent for print after approval by the author. This takes roughly around 4 weeks in total but may take a little longer under unavoidable circumstances like natural calamity or resource unavailability or delay due to the expanse of work involved in the manuscript’s conversion into a book.
What is the procedure of submission, evaluation, and publishing?
It’s simple! You just need to send us a part of your work (via email in MS Word or PDF format), and after a quick evaluation, someone from the editing team will get back to you, confirming the acceptance. Then after you send us the complete manuscript, we will start working on editing and cover designing simultaneously, followed by the formatting and printing of the book.
Will I be kept updated on the progress of my book's publication?
Of course! You own the book and only you deserve the right to finalize things. We will update you of every single progress at all the phases of the publication like cover designing, editing, formatting, layout designing, and printing. Your manuscript will climb up the ladder towards publication with your consent.
How will I get the updates?
We will be sending emails to maintain regularity and consistency in the flow of communication via written mode so that the clarity is preserved.
Who decides the price of my book?
We (that is you and us) will decide the price of the book. There is a production cost for every book. Anything reasonable above the cost price, decided mutually by you and our experienced team members, will be the final MRP of the book.
How will I know how many books have been sold?
We provide you a Sales Dashboard in which you can track how many books you’ve sold, when they were sold, through which portals (online/offline) they have been sold.
What would be my Royalty Percentage and how will I get it?
Being an author-centric company, Aelin offers one hundred profit to all its authors.
Will I retain the full rights to my book? Or will I have to give and share to Aelin if the book gets selected for a movie?
Like we said, you retain the complete rights of your book. And by God’s grace, if your story gets selected by any film production company, you need not pay even a single penny to Aelin Publishers.
In the future, if I want to get my book published by any other publishers, will I be able to do so?
Yes! If at any point in time you want to discontinue our services, all you need to do is send us an email or make a phone call. We would have no issues providing you a NOC (No Objection Certificate). But till the time you don’t do so, it would be illegal and unethical for you to get your book printed and marketed from any other source.
