BB is a small independent publishing platform
During BewleyBooks' establishment, it was our intent to help you, the writer, publish your book. As a relatively new and small publishing platform our outgoings always outweighed our income, but even though it cost us on average around £6k-£8k for every book produced, our efforts were never financially led. Our intention comes from our heart and willingness to help people achieve their dreams. So, in essence, we had no intention of profitting from a writer's work.
Of the books we have produced, we have made a substantial loss. But this was ok with us. Contrary to popular opinion, it is certainly a challenge to promote a book. However, as we did the work, we did it because we enjoyed it. However, we have to be sensible about such things and especially in such hard times. It has now become a financially untenable venture. The reason for this is that we have never charged author's for production, administration or marketing costs of their books. Because of this, we were unable to give writer's an advance for their work. However, if sales come in for the author's books, we pay the author a royalty, then we take a small percentage to cover the costs made for our work.
We are unable to take on any further work, but are always appreciative of donations to help us keep marketing the work and to keep producing books that are suitable for the platform. We've also created a course for new writers and funds that arise from this are invested back into this platform to help writers get their work noticed.
