GOING BEYOND A LA CARTE
The big picture
Entourage offers hybrid and royalties-based publishing contracts, determined on a book-by-book basis.
OPTION 1. If you have a finished, edited, manuscript ready to be published, you might be a good prospect for a publishing contract. Please submit your manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org in Word or Google Docs format.
OPTION 2. If you are looking for collaboration, coaching, or assistance in many areas leading up to the moment of publishing, you may be looking for a hybrid publishing contract with Entourage. Here’s how that might look, depending on what your work requires…
A hybrid publishing contract is more than a la carte editing services. This partnership is for authors who want their own team, one dedicated to helping bring the bigger picture into view. More than just completing a manuscript or creating a cover design, publishing contracts offer you an Entourage who will look at your book for its potential to generate revenue for you through book sales and business growth. Beyond that, help you create a publication that generates passive income for years to come. Beginning with tapping into the power of project management apps, we stay on the same page with milestones and goals. From vision to completion, hybrid contracts are unique to each author and include only what they need most within the budget and goals they envision.
Publishing via Entourage is customized to each unique title the comes to our team. We offer what works best, most often in the form of author services and/or hybrid contacts. For authors who want to pursue one of the more traditional publishers, we have in-house story consultants and former literary agents who can help determine how/if to best proceed down that pathway.

To send a message
When you see an inexpensive or DIY book design, you know it. It sends a message. All publishing contracts include interior page and cover design done by professionals who know how critical it is to your book’s brand and messaging to get it right. Font choices, spacing, consistency, headers, footers, index formatting, character and paragraph styling, photo placement, and editing… If it sounds like a lot of work, you’re not wrong. But when you have a team of book nerds, writers, editors, and designers, you can take refuge in a smoother, faster process. and a book you can be proud of.
To make it happen
When you find someone who is good at writing AND at tech, you keep them forever. And so we have. From meta tags to pre-press set-up, tech mistakes can ruin your launch. Whereas good tech, helps your book lands in stores and on bookshelves across North America. For magazine producers, we can help you gain a distributor and placements within book and grocery stores.
To launch, sell, & create a profit plan
Launch teams, beta readers, mailing lists, publication day events, lead funnels, book sales, and profit that exceeds what you’ve put into your project: that’s the goal, right? Writing a book can generate revenue in many ways. For some authors, revenue comes from corporate book sales. For others, it’s bookstore sales, and for many, it’s a combination of all of the above plus an increased business revenue (such as from coaching programs and programs) that changes their lives, brand, and reputation. The fun part is deciding what sounds best to you and creating a map from here to there. Your job is to write something that makes a difference in the world. Our job is, well, everything else!
