Trade Discounts
We recommend setting up your book with a 50% trade discount. Most stores will not stock your book with anything less.

Returnability
This is the option of the author and is highly recommended because most bookstores will not stock a book unless it is marked as returnable. If you have any questions about this, write me and I’ll explain it further.

Cost per book
The cost of your book will depend on its size, the number of pages, and whether it is in black and white or color. We will work closely with you to make sure you are getting the best price possible.

This is the responsibility of the author. M.A.P.P. is not responsible for grammar or spelling errors.

Marketing
This is the responsibility of the author. M.A.P.P. is not responsible for how you market your own book. Each author must decide how to reach their audience. I can give helpful advice and point you in the right direction, but driving sales is up to the creator of the book.
