Ink Smith Publishing
Ink Smith Publishing is a small independent publishing house with big dreams. Our authors and editors work closely together to develop their books, marketing plans, and sales. We tiptoed through our first year, 2012, with only two books published. Now half way through 2013, we plan on releasing a total of nine books. Looking forward, Ink Smith is planning on publishing twenty-four new titles in the year of 2014. Our books have sold internationally in other countries including Canada and the UK.
We work openly with our authors and connect on all social mediums including email, Facebook and texts. It may not be the traditional form of communication that other publishers use, but it allows our authors to get those eager questions answered as soon as possible. Further providing the dedication to our authors that we try our hardest to bring. We are a paying publisher offering a starting rate of 13% royalties for print books and 18% for ebooks.
Originally, we wanted to focus our efforts specifically on three genres. However, as we grew we realized we wanted to publish interesting stories readers would enjoy. Scream If You Wanna Go Faster was our second book we signed. We decided to publish it not because it was just well written, but because we knew people wanted to read a great story with memorable characters and an exciting journey. In simple, it’s not about the genre or perfect writing here at Ink Smith, but the warm feeling you get as you finish reading a great book.
