Disclaimer: Prices listed do not include applicable taxes (such as sales, use, excise, value-added, goods and services, or other tax), which will be added to the total at the time of purchase. Prices listed do include the copies of the book; the cost of shipping and handling will be calculated and charged after your book is made available for sale.

General Packages & Services Questions

Not all of our publishing packages include editing; however, we believe that editing is an important step for authors looking to achieve commercial success for their books. We do offer a full range of editorial services, which we encourage our authors to review based on their specific needs.

The Balboa Press online bookstore lists all of our published titles as part of your package purchase. Review all our packages to learn about other marketing opportunities included in each package. We offer additional promotional services that may help you meet the marketing goals you have for your book. Visit our Services page to learn more and purchase any marketing services you need.

Once it is published, your book will have a global audience because it will be listed in our online bookstore. Additionally, retailers such as,, Bertrams, Blackwell, Book Depository, Coutts, Gardners, Mallory International, and many others will list your book for sale through their online bookstores, and many bookstores will have the ability to order your book for their physical stores.

Here are some specific advantages of using POD:

  • Earth-friendly
  • Easy and cost-effective to produce books as they are ordered, either one at a time or in large numbers
  • Unlike a traditional printer, which can only print a large number of books at one time, POD is an "as needed" printer
  • No wasted books
  • No need to store a large inventory of books
  • A book can be available for an extended period of time, instead of the book being "out of print" after one print run

Royalties are based on the payments we actually receive from the sale of printed or electronic (e-book) copies of your book, minus any dispatching and handling charges or sales and use taxes. Total sales of the work and royalties are calculated on a calendar quarter basis. Royalties due will be paid within ninety (90) days after the end of each calendar quarter.

Payment of royalties can be made only via electronic funds transfer (EFT) to a United Kingdom bank account. For more information on how royalties are calculated, please visit our Pricing & Royalty FAQ.

When you purchase a package, we will assign you a publishing consultant. If you would like to order a package and get connected with your publishing consultant, please call us at 1800 050 315.

If you have already been assigned your publishing consultant, but are unsure of his or her contact information (name, phone number, e-mail address, etc.), please call us at 1800 050 315 so we may access your account and provide you with the correct information.
