Next Century Publishing is pleased to offer a publishing option for authors that, when compared to CreateSpace and Lulu, and similar companies is so superior that the differences are unbelievable. Our publishing option is ideal for authors who determine their own budgets and want their books available in both paperback and e-book formats. The benefits include:

  • Book to e-book: NCP not only converts books into e-book format, but NCP is the only publisher to convert books into all e-book formats, to sell all e-book formats from one location, to lift the price cap on an e-book, and to pay 75% net royalties to authors. NCP also distributes e-books to all online e-book stores at no additional costs. Authors earn 75% net royalties and attain worldwide coverage.
  • Book to print: Books are made ready for the NCP Single Print Option, which means authors do not need to print 1000s of copies or deal with fulfillment and distribution. NCP does the text layout, helps create a full cover if needed, adds ISBNs/barcodes, and ensures the book is completely ready for sale. As customers order, each copy is printed and mailed directly to them in 3-5 days.
  • Next Century Publishing also provides full editorial services (i.e., ghostwriting, editing, proofing,) at the best prices available in the industry. E-book conversion prices are based on 95% text coverage, and books with multiple images or tables require a quote.
