PENDIUM allows you, the author, to retain exclusive rights to your work without losing creative control. Unlike the major publishing houses, your book never goes out of print and you’re always an A-list author with us. In addition, we don’t determine whether we’ll publish you again by your last book’s sales history. Our doors are always open regardless of whether you’ve sold ten books or ten thousand.

Print-on-demand publishing allows your book to be printed whenever there’s an order placed. It is very cost-effective for the author because it eliminates the need for you to house or order thousands of books at a time.

Even though we accept manuscripts that we believe to have true potential, PENDIUM does charge for cost associated with publishing your book. Note that PENDIUM separates itself from other On Demand publishers by allowing our authors to receive 100% of their royalties on all bookstore sales. You don’t share a dime with us, as we’ve designed PENDIUM to be advantageous to our authors and their success. Our profit is earned from sales made directly at our site, of which you receive 75% of anytime your book is ordered.

Bookstores will be able to search for, find, and order your book on-demand. Your book will be accessible to over 25,000 book retailers, both brick-and-mortar and online. But with any brick-and-mortar bookstore, shelf space is limited and books are stocked mostly due to customer demand. It’s impossible to house every author that has ever written a book on the shelf of your local Barnes & Noble or Books-a-Million. Be aware that your book being on a bookstore shelf doesn’t guarantee or determine whether your book will sell.

PENDIUM offers the industry standard discount of up to 55% to retailers, such as Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, etc. in order that your book is not disadvantaged in any way.

Your most cost-effective option is to submit your manuscript and all required submission material online, but you may do so by mail if you prefer.

Once the production of your book is complete, we will provide you with a free pdf proof prior to submitting it to the printer. This pdf will be the formatted version of your book that the printer will receive. It is extremely important that you review the proof and are satisfied with the work at this stage. If any changes are needed to this formatted pdf, PENDIUM will make up to 15 free changes as a courtesy. Any desired changes to the formatted pdf beyond 15 will incur a charge of $2.50 per change. If these changes are requested prior to the work being formatted then there is no charge. Once your book has been submitted to the printer, the printer will charge a fee for any files needing to be resubmitted that has incurred changes (i.e. book cover, interior file, etc.). If you desire a hard copy version of your book for review, there is a cost of $45 charged by the printer.

Along with payments of $25 or more due to you, royalty statements are mailed within 45 days of the end of the quarter – detailing your earnings from sales.

Instead of offering you a discount off the list price of your book like most On Demand publishers, each time you purchase copies of your title from us you will only pay the actual printing cost that is incurred to produce your book. If your book cost $3.30 to print, you pay only $3.30 per book (plus UPS shipping/handling) when you order copies.
