Seeking Romance, Fantasy and More: Lazy Day Publishing

Post date: 25 May 2012
LazyDay Publishing is a digital publisher that is focused on the future of storytelling. We are located in Reno, Nevada and have over 40 books published on Amazon, B&N, Allromance.com and Lazydaypub.com.

We are looking at forming partnerships with our authors to bring the art of storytelling into the future. By merging an author's art with our business expertise, LazyDay Publishing can offer a new and fresh way of doing business.

Digital publishing has allowed us the format to be able to embrace an author's manuscript. We can break out from the mold of classic publishing. We can offer our readers stories that are innovative, creative and exciting!

These stories will be on our site, but will also be available with all the leading third party distributors. Our books will be easily available in all formats. LazyDay Publishing will be a dominating presence in the future of the digital book.

We are actively pursuing authors who want to be part of our team. Please see our submission guidelines on how to get published.

We offer royalties of 40% of cover price for digital direct sales, 50% of cover price of publisher's royalty for 3rd party distribution and 7% of cover price for print if we retain the print rights.

LazyDay Publishing is royalty based with no advance. Payments will be made to the author on a quarterly basis. The author is never required to pay any money for editing, cover art or publishing.

Our contract is asking for full digital rights of the work. We will not be asking for print rights, unless it is our intention to go to print with the book. A fully negotiable contract will be available for review upon acceptance of the manuscript.
