Our Business Model

The focus of R. C. Linnell Publishing is to help authors get their manuscripts published and available to the public on Amazon.com. Once that is accomplished, everything is turned over to you, the author and owner of the work. You will have complete control over how the book is marketed, publicized and distributed. You will have the power of Amazon.com and all its distribution channels at your fingertips. Royalties are paid monthly directly into your bank account and you have access to sales figures as they happen.


One big advantage of this method is the direct setup. No agents. No middlemen. Profits from sales are larger and costs for ordering copies of your work are low. For example, a 180 page, black and white book (no color pictures) will cost the author about $3.00 each when ordering for use at book fairs and personal distribution. If the sale price on Amazon is about $16.00, each sale will result in an average royalty between $6 and $7, depending on the distribution channel. Sound good? It is. R. C. Linnell Publishing will get you there.


It is important to note what R. C. Linnell Publishing does NOT do. We do not market. We do not distribute. We do not arrange publicity. We do not order books for you. We do not sell your books. You do all that. We simply set everything up so that you can do it.


Who is a good candidate for our services? If you have published works already in circulation and have a following, this will be a good choice for you. If you are new to publishing, but can identify a target audience of readers, this will be a good choice for you. If you are motivated and have the time to devote to promoting your work, this will be a good choice for you. If you have a manuscript that you want to see in print, this will be a good choice for you.


What types of manuscripts do we accept? Any genre is accepted as long as the writing is clear. If we can’t follow your story or keep track of your characters or do not understand what you are trying to say, then you need to work on your writing. We’ll let you know what we think.


We do NOT accept anything X-rated. Period. However, sex and violence are part of life and as long as it contributes to the story and not prurient interests alone, it is acceptable. We reserve the right to reject any manuscript we consider to be X-rated.


At this time, we cannot accept children’s picture books. Not because of the content, but the use of color illustrations requires different processing, and significantly increases production costs and lowers royalties. We may add this service at some time in the future when the situation changes.


Other than that, we will accept fiction or non-fiction.
