Alante Publishing puts an innovative spin on author-assisted publishing. By offering a unique blend of traditional publishing standards with self-publishing services, we help authors create marketable products and achieve their goals. We also provide our authors with substantial royalty opportunities.

Why should you publish with Alante Publishing?

Alante Publishing Royalty Program: We pay a 10% royalty on the retail price for the first 5,000 books sold, 12.5% royalty on the retail price for the second 5,000 books sold, and 15% royalty on the retail price for over 10,000 books sold. The more you sell, the more you make. We also pay royalties in a similar manner for books that are purchased through our Publisher Direct Program which allows authors and consumers to buy books at discount wholesale prices through this web site. All of our royalty calculations are based on Net Sales (Units Sold - Units Returned = Net Sales).

Best Seller Bonus Program: Every quarter, the author that sells the most units of a book (Paperback + eBooks) will receive a $250 Best Seller Bonus. The second highest seller will receive a $100 Best Seller Bonus. And the third highest seller will receive a $50 Best Seller Bonus.

Worldwide Distribution: Our paperbacks and eBooks are distributed through all major booksellers including Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million and many more. Our books are included in the electronic catalogs of over 30,000 wholesalers, retailers, and booksellers in over 100 countries. Electronic versions of our books are available at over 300 Internet stores that sell books for mobile readers - including the Amazon Kindle and Adobe eBooks. In addition, we make our paperbacks available for the Espresso Book Machine.

Quality Assurance: All Alante Publishing books must pass a Quality Assurance Edit before they can be released into the marketplace. All content must be approved by our editors and all artwork must be approved by our creative department. All of our submission guidelines must be followed and we will not publish a book until it meets our standards.

Books are Returnable: All Alante Publishing books are returnable which helps authors gain entry into brick-and-mortar book stores.

Author Owned: Alante Publishing is owned by a group of best-selling, award-winning authors. We know how difficult it is to get a book on the market. Many of our employees are also writers and we understand how to get your hard work into print. We're ready when you are.
