AUTHOR earns 100% OF ALL ROYALTIES
Your only obligation to CMP is to order/purchase 250 print copies of your title at a 30% discount off the cover price. These copies are yours to sell, promote, or give away, based on your needs. The sale of these books will more than recover your investment.
Meanwhile, your book will be immediately available at Amazon and other outlets, earning great royalties. Then, after your purchase of the first 250 print copies (at 30% discount), you will be able to purchase an unlimited number of copies at more than 50% off the cover price for as long as you keep the book in print.
We earn our "fee" and pay the editors, cover designers, interior designers, and others involved in producing your book, from the initial author order/purchase.
PULPIT TO PAGE
(For Members of the Clergy or Other Public Speakers & Teachers )
You speak. The words flow. The people listen. Then you do it all again a week later. Sometimes you feel good about the message. Sometimes you want to hide out for a few days.
Most preachers accept the fact that not all sermons are "keepers." In fact, some may be quite forgettable. Then there are some wonderful moments. Maybe you experience what the great preacher D. Martin Lloyd-Jones characterized as "unction." You come up with something special, maybe a single message, maybe an extended series. But once delivered, that's that.
However, that doesn't have to be the end of your sermon’s story.
Speaking of D. Martin Lloyd-Jones, who preached for 30 years at historic Westminster Chapel in London, did you know that most of his books, the ones regularly seen on a pastor's shelves, came almost verbatim from sermon transcripts? That's right, his words went from PULPIT to PAGE.
All we need to get started is a transcript of your message(s). We've partnered with the great people at INTENTIONAL REACH, a transcription service used and recommended by Christian leaders around the world.
Also, unique for members of the clergy, we offer something called our…
ULTIMATE PUBLISHING PACKAGE
This is the ultimate publishing program for first time ministry-related authors. It includes everything “from soup to nuts.” All it takes is audio of your spoken message(s). We create transcripts via the excellent people at Intentional Reach.
We then take the “DNA” of your spoken words and, using the developmental tools and expertise of experienced editors and published authors, work closely with you crafting your book. This package includes an element of ghost-writing, but the book still represents your words and thoughts. It is a labor-intensive process, but well worth the price.
Whether your book is 10,000 words or 50,000 words, we bring your ideas forward from your audio files into something ready to be published in print or digitally, for just ten cents ($0.10) per word. This price includes all of the costs of transcription and full editing.
You can then use our Indie publishing package and, before you know it, your new book will be available around the world.
Of course, you could choose to take your completed manuscript anywhere else to be published—even submitting it to a traditional publisher. In other words, using CMP to develop your project from audio to completed manuscript does not obligate you to use us to publish your book.
[NOTE: A typical four-part sermon series would translate into a book of approximately 20,000-28,000 words, give or take.]
