What we do when you publish with us:
How much do authors make?
Contrary to popular belief, most authors don't make much money on the sales of their books. Authors write books for credibility and to boost their income from speaking engagements, or to get important information out to the public. Unlike most publishing companies who offer 2% -10% in royalties to their authors, we offer 50% of the profits (royalties). However, don't expect to get rich writing books. You'll need to put out a lot of effort to market your book, do book signings, contact radio talk show hosts and do as many programs as possible to get the word out and spark interest in your book.
What can writers do to get more book sales?
Write more books. Authors with multiple books get more sales.
Do your own promotions, radio talk shows, meetings, conferences, etc. Sell your books at these events.
Tell everyone you know to purchase your book on Amazon.com and to leave feedback, which will help increase sales. Note: the ranking of your book is only affected by sales on Amazon.com.
Send a copy of your book and press release to radio program hosts.
When do I get paid?
We will send checks quarterly.
Can you send a press release out to the media?
Press Release Service: Create a press release and send to media throughout the U.S. through PR Web. Contact us for pricing information.

Marketing Your Book
Un-X Media does a lot to promote author’s books, but Authors can market their book in several ways to gain more exposure. The important thing is to spend some time to actively market your book at least on a weekly basis to gain interest and make more sales on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
List your book at wordlikes.com. This is a website that promotes books for authors. Be sure to post a picture of the book and yourself, along with your book description.
Post your book with a different comment once a month on your Facebook, Instagram, twitter, LinkedIn, or other social media accounts. Be sure to include the link to your book on Amazon.
Join author promotion groups on Facebook and participate in their discussions. Post your book on these pages.
Create your own business book page on your Facebook account (under your name) Ask people to leave reviews here and on Amazon.
Create your own website and list your books with links for purchase on Amazon. If you’d like, we can create a website for you for a fee.
Contact radio talk show hosts who would be interested you your book genre and send them a press release and sample copy of your book. You should get some radio interviews to promote your book using this method. Don’t blatantly promote your book during the interview but be sure to mention your website or Amazon at least once. Do smaller podcasts at first, before promoting to the larger shows.
