New Media Profit is a mass-market book publishing company. We publish books, podcast, video and music in all genres. We work hard to give our authors the support that they need to produce books that sell and make money.
We do not charge you publishing fees. We earn a profit when we sell books to readers through our marketing campaigns.
We pay our authors a percentage of net royalties and of all payments received for subsidiary rights licensing deals.
We don’t offer many authors cash advances on their first book.Some authors can earn advances on subsequent works.
That depends on many factors. You will earn a percentage of Net Royalties*. That percentage depends on how many books you have published to date. How much info you have on your audience etc.
*Net royalties means the total amount of money we receive from the sale of a book. We do not deduct any expenses from Net royalties unless that expense is agreed upon in advance. The most common expense deduction from a royalty is an agent fee. As an example if we earn royalties from translating your book to a foreign language and have an international agent rep the book for 20%, then we earn $10,000 from the sales of your book in that language then we would deduct the agents fee from our reciept of the money $10,000 royalties earned – $2000 agent fee = $8,000 Net royalty.
We are a full-service publishing company dedicated to helping you build your author brand and increase your success.

As long as you still own the rights to your book, yes you can. If you self-published your book, you can definitely switch to us right away. We have had many authors switch from self-publishing to New Media Profit, and we can make the process quick, easy, and painless for you.
If you published your book with another publisher, you’ll need to look at your publishing contract to see if you still own the rights to your work. If you are unsure about your ownership then either contact your attorney or email us a copy of the contract and we can let you know.

For Print Books
We design and build a complete custom marketing plans for each of our authors. While some things remain the same in each book, every book has it’s own target audience. This requires a full marketing plan for the Author that is ongoing for years and for each book
Here are some of the common book marketing services:
No publisher can do all the marketing for an author. You have to learn to connect with fans and influencers directly, because it is yourfans who will buy your books, tell their friends, and help you pay your bills.
Fans don’t care who your publisher is. They want to connect with you…the author. That’s why we invest so much time, energy and money to help you build your author brand. We focus on all the busy marketing and publishing work so you can focus on what matters most: writing great books and connecting with your audience.
Yes, we accept submissions from literary agents and agented authors. Use this form to submit your book for review.
No. Having that is helpful but not necessary. It helps if you have some of that but we invest in training and coaching authors like you to help you build your platform. Remember, every great author once started with zero followers and zero fans.
We also invest heavily in marketing and promotion so we can help build your fan base from the ground up.
If you have a large following of fans already, that’s great! However, it’s not necessary to get a publishing deal. We consider the quality of your writing and message to be far more important than how many people happen to follow you on Facebook or Twitter.
