Small Press Model

Angry Eagle Publishing uses a unique model to get your books to print. We are what is known by the IBPA as Small Press Publishers. We work with you to get your book to print.

There are multiple ways to get your book published through Angry Eagle Publishing.

But before we talk about that let’s get to know exactly what this means.

Our model of what is sometimes known as hybrid, was previously known as Small Press Publishing, but we’ve expanded to offer an author services menu of author services. Small press differs from traditional publishing in a few ways but largely remains the same. It is a royalty-paying publisher, however, we do not offer advances.

We offer all services upfront without cost to the author for a royalty share. These vary by author and sometimes wildly. Some of our past author packages range from royalty shares of 30-70%, with non-exclusive rights from 6-18 months through the full traditional 7-year rights package. We can create a package for every author. Examples of how this works include services you find in the Author Services section of the site and our non-exclusive rights policy.

YOU OWN YOUR BOOK! Yes, YOU own it. We simply borrow the rights for the contracted time period. After that period ends you may take your book wide or leave it exclusive with us.

  • When we publish your book we issue you a unique ISBN for your print book. We handle all editorial and creative costs for you. We work with you every step of the way from outline to completion.

Depending upon the level of services your royalty share can range from 30-70% of the net royalties as well as the term of your contract. Your needs dictate your contract and none are identical. We make it work for you.

Some of the ways your contract can be constructed.

  • Royalty rate between 30-50% — all costs absorbed by the publisher. (Rate depends on the level of services needed)
  • Royalty rate between 50-70% — Editorial or cover costs may be carried by the author. (authors who submit with covers and previously edited work can gain a higher royalty rate)

We maintain the right to publish your book for the duration of the contract and for as long as you keep it within the Angry Eagle Publishing Group.

We may run sales on your title if we feel it will benefit your brand and offer free copies to book stores. There is no cost for these marketing options. When you choose Angry Eagle Publishing you are choosing YOU!

*Note, we always own the ISBN, and to republish with another publisher or solely independent you cannot reuse the ISBN. Authors may choose to purchase their own.
