How YOUR book deal works: You submit your "ready to go" story in MS Word or a .pdf of your book with a non-refundable $300 set-up fee. If your files are complete and ready to print, some or all of the set-up fee will be applied toward your first book order of 50 or more books. The books will arrive UPS at your address within weeks and be ready for you to distribute.

IMPORTANT: BECAUSE WE OFFER THE "PRINT-ON-DEMAND" PROCESS, THERE IS NO REQUIREMENT TO ORDER THOUSANDS OF COPIES, UNLIKE OTHER PUBLISHERS REQUIRE. YOU CAN ORDER ANY AMOUNT AND NEVER BE BURDENED WITH A HOUSEFUL OF UNSOLD BOOKS.

OUR OFFER TO YOU: BVP works with you to create your cover and format your book, adds a barcode and a free ISBN, then submits your book to our printer. You then order a proof copy (about $10 for one copy). You can make changes, then order another proof if necessary. Once you approve the book, you can order 50 or more books at an average price of $6.50 per book, incl shipping. (Price may vary with higher or lower page count, of course.) Anytime thereafter, you can order any number of books for the same, low price. BVP will also put your book on Amazon and Kindle if you wish at little or no cost to you. You share all the royalties. With these online orders through Amazon, there's no work for you except cashing the check.

This is the easiest and probably the cheapest way to get your book printed and out in front of readers (and buyers). It's also a worry-free way to get your book published.

We are now accepting manuscripts. Email or Phone today.

An Example: Below is Wally Wenzel's wonderful 1930s and 40s memoir from his childhood in Phelps, Wisconsin. Wally is in a rest home now. BVP worked with his family to publish his many stories into this amazing Wisconsin memoir, soon to be available to the public. Because the files BVP required extensive proofing, the family incurred around $230 in additional charges. (Ready to publish files do not incur these charges.) The Wenzels ordered 50 copies, enough for the family and close friends. Within months, they placed another order of 60 for a Phelps school reunion and books offered for sale as a fundraiser by the local historical society. Someday, Wally's book will be in every library in Wisconsin. BVP will work to make YOUR publishing experience will go as well.

Here's Jim Anderson's MARATHON IN 50 STATES book. It's a great look at a wonderful accomplishment, including a softcover. 166 pages w/ photos. This is sure to be a big hit in Cable due to the interest in fitness, running, skiing, and biking. Excellent book that inspires elders and youngsters alike.
