COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, CEO Rob Price of Price World Publishing announced some of the most exciting news for authors and small publishers in years. The launch of Gatekeeper Press, a full-service publishing house and distribution aggregator that partners to produce and distribute high-quality books in both digital and print formats.
What makes Gatekeeper Press different from other companies offering similar services? "Everything," says Price, "Our prices are the lowest, and our payouts are the highest. Gatekeeper Press authors earn 100% of their royalties, retain 100% of their rights, and our distribution arm reaches readers around the globe."
The company offers four services: eBook Conversion and Distribution ($249), Paperback Design and Distribution ($249), Cover Design ($189), Editing and Proofreading ($10.50/1,000 words and $6.50/1,000 words), plus it offers even lower prices when services are combined.
Gatekeeper Press' distribution network includes 14 eBook outlets and print-book distribution through Amazon.com, Amazon Europe, BarnesandNoble.com, Ingram, Baker & Taylor, and NACSCORP. The company doesn't require pre-formatted files and doesn't charge extra for the inclusion of graphics, images, or audio or video files used to create enhanced eBooks.
Authors receive 100% of their royalties, are not subject to hidden costs or annual fees, and can choose to have their books pulled from distribution at any time for any reason.
Gatekeeper Press authors are assigned their own U.S.-based publishing professional called an "Author Manager", are paid monthly and can view their sales online, even broken down by venue, 24/7. The company offers free 30-minute consultation sessions, free sample editing, and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Price, the newly-elected Treasurer of the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), says, "Comparing apples to apples, and even comparing apples to oranges, no one out there offers anything close to what we do. We've beta tested our service and have received nothing but amazing reviews. Our authors have been so happy with our service that several of them are voluntarily offering to be spokespeople for the company."
Price says the question he is most frequently asked is how the company plans to make money considering its low prices and labor-intensive services. Price, who has been a publisher since 2001, answers that Gatekeeper Press is able to offer such low prices because of low overhead, existing publishing infrastructure, and efficiencies.
Aptly named, Gatekeeper Press' mission is to open the gates of the book-publishing world to everyone interested in joining it by offering the highest-quality services for the lowest-possible prices.
