We will make every effort to field to a NYC publishing house. If sold, 10% of first-rights royalties to literary agent negotiated at publishers at time of sale, standard for the industry
HIGH VISIBILITY ALTERNATIVES EXIST THAT EVERY AUTHOR SHOULD CONSIDER, SERIOUSLY CONSIDER. EVEN IF WE CAN SELL YOUR MANUSCRIPT TO A NYC MAJOR PUBLISHER, SALES DEPEND ON MARKETING AND NO NYC HOUSE WILL GO WORLDWIDE ON A FIRST-TIME AUTHOR. YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THIS. TO BRIDGE THAT GAP, YOU NEED THE WORLDWIDE WEB. WE HAVE THE WAY TO GO.
It is the primary mission of The Aaland Agency to identify unique stories from the myriad number of submissions we receive every month that display significant potential for NYC publishing house review AND the worldwide web. That formula MEANS MONEY FOR YOU AND US and another happy client.
WHAT SELLS IS FICTION CRIME DRAMA, ACTION/ADVENTURE, SCI-FI AND ROMANCE. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE ROSES. THESE GENRES SELL.
DO NOT USE ANY WORD PROCESSING SYSTEM OTHER THAN MICROSOFT WORD. ADOBE IS CUMBERSOME AT BEST AND PDF IS LESS THAN AN AFTERTHOUGHT.
WE ALSO HANDLE NONFICTION WITH ALL CONCEPTS CONSIDERED. HOWEVER, BE SMART HERE: READERS WANT TO BE ENTERTAINED, NOT PUT TO SLEEP BY A TRAVELOGUE ON, SAY, THE ORIGINAL INHABITANTS OF ICELAND. CHOOSE WISELY.
