FAQ - Grove Chronicles

Below are some of the common questions we have been asked about our services and what we offer. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us directly via email on the contact us page. 

Will you publish my book?

The short answer is; it depends. All books go through a selection process by our agents who then determine if a book will be published or not. If you have a large follower base or are active on social media, your chances of being accepted and published may be considerably boosted. For any further questions related to the selection process, you can email us via the contact us page.  

Do I have to pay for you to publish my book?

No, you don’t have to pay anything. We publish your books through Amazon (we don’t plan on wide publishing anytime soon), and we take care of the editing, proofreading, cover design, formatting, and marketing cost. Just as a traditional publisher. We also have mailing lists and marketing campaigns ready, making the process a whole lot simpler and convenient. 

How much does it cost for you to publish my book?

It highly depends on the content, the genre of book, whether it will turn into a series, and more. We are very transparent about the cost, so we estimate around $1500 to $3000 for a full-length book (based on an 80,000 word book). Marketing will make up for over 50% of this value. 

Do I need to have my book edited beforehand?

Generally speaking, no. We will cover the editing and proof-reading process for you unless major revisions are required. This is rarely the case, however, and if your book has already been accepted by us, you may rest assured that we are satisfied with the quality and content of your work. 

How much are the royalties?

As we don’t ask authors to pay to use our services, our only way of acquiring profit to keep our publishing house running is via royalties. Currently, we offer a 60/40 split between us and our authors, respectively. As we have an interest in earning back the cost spent on publishing our author’s books, we have a vested interest in our authors doing well and their books being successful.
