The publishing division of Club Readership, through which emerging authors will be discovered, groomed and published, and existing authors will be promoted and possibly also published at an affordable and convenient price. This division is divided into 3 parts, namely, Hybrid publishing, Self-Publishing API and Digital Publishing.
Hybrid Publishing: Hybrid publishing allows authors to find high quality publishing services within one company so they don’t have to act as general contractors, hiring all the services they need separately. Though as with traditional publishers, not every publisher is the same.
Disclaimer: The CR operates with a different revenue model than traditional publishing and other hybrid publishers, while keeping the rest of the practices of traditional publishing the same. The revenue source of a traditional publisher is through the sale of books (and other related materials) that they publish. At CR publishers, the revenue of hybrid publishing comes from the fees charged for the execution of our publishing services we do not market and distribute the books. We can only distribute digitally and the author keeps all the profits.
Though we might retain the printing rights of the print version of the book depending on the contractual agreement with the hybrid author.
Hybrid author : Hybrid author is an author who has self-published an eBook. Then sells the print rights for that book to a traditional publisher while retaining the electronic rights.
Self publishing : Authors publish their book on their own without any help or contract out specific services such as editing or cover design. Hybrid publishing allows authors to find high quality publishing services within one company so they don’t have to act as general contractors, hiring all the services they need separately.
Self publishing affords the author freedom in exactly how they decide to get their book to market. Hybrid publishing may restrict some of this creative freedom in the same way that traditional publishers operate, doing what they believe is best for the book and the market rather than the author leading the editorial and design decisions. Each hybrid publisher is different and vary by how much creative freedom they give authors, and other criteria.
