Client agreements with Tapestry Press generally fall into one of three different publishing arrangements. They are:
Traditional Publishing Agreement:
The publisher acquires the exclusive right to publish a title and sell books in the trade market. In return, the author receives royalties on each sale that is made. Usually an advance on royalties is paid to the author. Highlights of this agreement include that the publisher owns the copyright and controls all production and marketing decisions as the publisher bears the financial risk for the project. Nevertheless, every project is collaborative in nature, and the final product is one that both parties are proud to present.
Commissioned Book Arrangement:
In this scenario, the author exercises 100% control of the content and timelines of the project. The books are customized and used for a specific purpose such as a commemorative piece or a gift. This may be appropriate if the author has an established market or plans to use the book as a tool to enhance an existing program. Under this contractual agreement, the author retains the copyright, all trade rights, as well as responsibility for the publicity and marketing of the book. Tapestry Press is a contractor in this arrangement and can perform any task that is listed under Menu of Services. Normally, a simple letter of agreement suffices versus an in-depth publishing contract. Often this arrangement is referred to as self publishing.
Hybrid Publishing Agreement:
This is a blend of the above two agreements and occurs when the author and Tapestry Press concur that the book merits marketing and distribution to the trade market place.
