Hybrid Publishing with Pumpkin Vines
At Pumpkin Vines, we understand that every author's journey is unique. That's why we offer a hybrid publishing option, blending the best of traditional and self-publishing models to cater to your individual needs.
How Hybrid Publishing Works
1. Submission and Evaluation
The process begins with the submission of sample pages or the entire manuscript. Our team evaluates the content to determine its suitability for publication. Not all submissions are accepted, aligning with industry standards. Some manuscripts may be accepted on a contingency basis, with the option for additional developmental and/or copyediting.
2. Package Options
Upon acceptance, authors are presented with a range of package options tailored to their requirements. Packages cover essential services like design, production, and distribution, with the flexibility to choose enhanced services such as developmental editing, marketing materials, or media outreach. Authors can opt for a pre-designed package or create a custom plan according to their needs.
3. Transparent Pricing
At Pumpkin Vines, we prioritize transparency in pricing. Authors receive clear information about the costs associated with their chosen package. It's essential to note that, like any publishing endeavor, there may be additional costs for tasks such as advance reader copies, shipping, storage, and permissions. We ensure authors are aware of these potential expenses upfront to avoid unwelcome surprises.
4. Additional Costs Awareness
We recognize that authors may not be familiar with all the nuances of the publishing process. To address this, we provide clear communication about potential additional costs before the book reaches readers' hands. Whether it's obtaining an ISBN or hiring a proofreader, we guide authors through these aspects to enhance their understanding and experience.
