Information for Authors

Sacristy Press is a co-operative publisher. This means that most of the books we publish require a subvention from the author to jointly support the initial production costs (such as typesetting, editorial work, and production). However, the subventions are considerably lower than the costs of publishing the book yourself, and we are selective about the titles we publish.

As a result, we can often offer authors a higher royalty than might be received elsewhere – up to 20% of net receipts, depending upon the nature of the work, your initial contribution, and the expected return on our investment. 

Why publish with us?

  • Our editorial process is a collaboration between the editor, designer, and author allowing you to have maximum input and attentive feedback.
  • We usually publish to e-book stores at the same time as the paper version goes to print, allowing for rapid market integration and consumer accessibility.
  • The paper version of your book is printed via Print on Demand, so it never goes out of print (subject to contract status and market conditions) and there are no large and costly print runs.
  • Titles are marketed extensively via social media and other channels.
  • Your title can be made available not only in the UK, but additionally in other markets worldwide, including the USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, and elsewhere.
  • E-books are priced competitively and available in the widest possible selection of markets and platforms.
  • Authors are able to order from us at trade terms (i.e. a significant discount; subject to contract).
