If you are accepted for our Emerging Authors Program but cannot afford the costs of having your book published, there’s a solution. Thanks to our exclusive crowdfunding program with Publishizer, you can raise the money needed to publish your book.
Publishizer assists by building a crowdfunding digital page on its website, which includes a video presentation by the author. Those contributing to the author’s funding drive get a copy of the book, either digital or print. The pre-orders are placed through Publishizer and fulfilled by the author through Koehler Books.
Authors have independently raised thousands of dollars—some tens of thousands—through Publishizer campaigns. Koehler Books has had several successful Publishizer authors come on board. This program expands that relationship by offering crowdfunding assistance to any Koehler Books author who meets our standards of quality.
How does it work?
1) Fill out the crowdfunding pitch form on Publishizer:
This will begin the process of preparing your work for a crowdfunding campaign, and alert Koehler Books that you are a candidate. You will work with Lee Constantine and his team at Publishizer to launch your crowdfunding campaign. They have useful templates, support from their agents, and tools and strategies to help you gain traction for your book idea.
2) Submit your manuscript to Koehler Books:
We will set up a call to discuss your work, marketing, and pre-order campaign with Publishizer, and answer any questions you have. Because you will have them!
If you are accepted in the Koehler Books/Publishizer Emerging Authors Program, we will issue a publication contract that includes a contingency for you to raise a percentage of your costs through your Publishizer campaign and other sources.
The money you raise with Publishizer can be applied to marketing, fulfillment of pre-orders through printing and shipping, and other fees associated with your publication process. That process will teach you about book marketing, pre-order campaigns, and many other things related to publishing, and will prepare the way for the launch of your book.
Together Publishizer and Koehler Books will show you the way to book success. Because all things are possible.
We look forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey.
