With any great change especially one as big as healing; the world the sharing of information is a vital part of that process. That being said we welcome you to YUSA Press the first port of call for all aspiring authors looking for assistance during the final stages producing and disseminating their work.

From first-hand experience we know the difficulties in the decisions faced when choosing who and how to get your work published and visible to a worldwide audience. The seemingly peaceful book publishing industry behind the scenes in reality is cutthroat and not as calm and harmonious as it would first seem and instead is filled with money grabbing dream sellers known in the business as 'Vanity Publishers'. It is not uncommon for first time authors to pay pricey service fees to companies who fail to produce a satisfactory quality end product leaving the author disgruntled, disheartened and out of pocket.

Self-publishing is not always easy especially for your first time and can a long winded complicated process. Thankfully we have experienced the traps and pitfalls and common mistakes that can make or break the launch of a title so we are here to give you a helping hand. All of our services are designed to give you the control you need coupled with our experience to help you bring your project to life.

 
 

 
 
Being familiar with our website and teachings, you can comprehend that the digital revolution is shaping the way the world around us works. The same can be said for the publishing industry, in that it is certainly not exempt to change. As a self-publisher, you are now in control of the entire process from the cover design, content to the advertising and the way in which you wish to market your title. Thus ensuring the final product is as you had originally envisioned and more significantly any profit you acquire is in your control.

For the inexperienced, the mere thought of self-publishing can be intimidating due to the sheer workload and the commitment it so entails. However, self-publishing has in fact existed for centuries. Virginia Woolf, Mark Twain, James Joyce and William Blake are just a few notable authors who opted to publish their own work. Contrary to popular belief, self-publishing is a perfectly respectable method to ensure your book succeeds in reaching the marketplace.

In reality, publishing a book through a 'mainstream' publisher is far from easy, and this is what encourages many authors to self-publish their title as a stepping stone if you like. On average, a large traditional publisher receives around 5,000 submissions a year. Based solely upon those 5,000 submissions, a colossal 90% of these titles get rejected. From the remaining submissions, 8% are rejected after reading the first chapter, which leaves only 2% that are considered based upon the entire manuscript.

Choosing to work with YUSAPress not only offers you the assistive guidance and support that you require bringing your message to life but gives you the full control over the direction you push your work.

Ownership: Your Intellectual Property Rights Are Always Yours.
As a self-publishing author you own all the rights to your book in their entirety. Furthermore, there is no third party; everything is set up in your name, meaning that you shall have access to the sale reports as well as any royalties being paid directly to you. However, if you opt to publish your manuscript through a traditional publishing company, you are likely to lose those rights. Therefore, if you wish for more printed copies but the company happens to lose interest in the book, you would have to purchase those rights back.

Timescale: Your book, your expectations so your timescale.
Most traditional publishing companies work to their own schedule. Typically, from the time the publisher receives the manuscript to releasing it to the public, you are often looking at one to two years. However, dependent upon your manuscript progress as well as your goals and expectations, here at YUSAPress we will assist you in publishing your title within as little as six weeks after we receive your manuscript.

Distribution.
Striking a deal with a traditional publishing company does not ensure your title to becoming physically available within a bookstore. This primarily is due to the risk factor bookstores take into consideration when filling their shelves with the work of those authors with little to no reputation. Nevertheless, do not allow this to dishearten you as platforms such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble collectively sell far more books online than bookstores do around the world. Through YUSAPress your title will gain access to a worldwide audience via Amazon, Amazon Kindle Wattpad&LuLu just to name a few. Furthermore, we offer distribution throughout our combined community network of over 100,000 people across the globe.

Profit
Authors who publish with us receive 100% of the profits. Whereas a self-publisher can expect to receive a minimum of 50-60% of the margin on book sales and an author who chooses to use a traditional publishing company will receive a 5-20% royalty rate, which over time equates to a considerable difference.

 
 

 
 
For the inexperienced author, self-publishing can be a time-consuming, overwhelming and to the inexperienced an expensive process, we learned of this after we elected to work with a vanity publishing company in early 2014. During the final stages of the manuscript, it became apparent that our interests were not at all their prime concern. Following an extortionate payment, regrettably the company we invested in showed signs of incompetence and failed to deliver a quality service.

After this unfortunate ordeal, YUSA took the initiative in studying how one may become a publisher, and we proceeded with publishing our work in November 2014. Since the official release of our title we have made the following achievements:

- Amazon Best Seller in the following categories:
  - Chakras
  - Alternative & Holistic Healing
  - Science & Maths for The Sacred Geometry
     
     
- Selected for Legal Deposit and inserted into the following UK Libraries:
  - Bodleian Library Oxford University
  - Cambridge University Library
  - National Library Of Scotland
  - National Library of Wales
  - Trinity College Dublin.
     
     
 
 

 
 
Following our unfortunate experience, it was our vision to create a platform that truly enables you as an author to stay in complete control in the delivery of your book.

Various publishing firms offer a multitude of complex packages with available 'add-ons' as well as conniving additional fees. These are worded in such a way to give you as the author the impression that they shall move mountains to produce your material, when in reality the process is rather simple.

YUSAPress will guide you through the very same process that we use to bring our own work to life and a worldwide audience.

The cost to self-publish a title is dependent on the author's time, ability and resources. To break down the market, the average book that is 80%-100% complete can cost between £150-£500 to complete, which is considered a low budget production.
In truth, more than half of self-published authors can earn less than £5000, increasing the complexity of your decision to invest in your project. You must appreciate that for your book to be taken with earnest intent, it demands quality, visibility and credibility.
 
A study conducted by the Guardian uncovered that the average self-published author in the successful 50 percentile earns an average of £5000-£6,500 annually. The stiff difference between the top 50% and the bottom 50% is that the top authors recognise that for their target readers to take an interest in their title, they must invest in themselves as it has become less difficult for books to enter the market, readers have become more adept at identifying sub-standard books. Therefore, you may have the most imaginative, informative or motivating content that is so wonderfully written and presented, however, if no one is aware of its existence it will, unfortunately, gather virtual dust.
 
The following is an average breakdown provided by the Guardian of the costs incurred by a successful self-published author. £2,600.
Developmental edit £650
Copy/Line editing £900
Cover Design £150.00
Book formatting and layout £200
ISBN - £125.00
Total marketing spend including website - £600
 
Total investment £2,600
In the hopes to cater to as many people as possible and exclude anyone by offering a one size fits all package as each author will submit manuscripts that are different sizes and stages of completion and ultimately require different levels of assistance.

We will note that the entry-level price of our service is £500.00 we encourage manuscript submissions from authors with enough belief in their product who are prepared to invest what's necessary into their book to produce a final product of high-street quality.
