Frequently Asked Questions:

Where is your website link?
Our website is http://www.museituppublishing.com

How can I contact one of my favorite authors?
On each author's bio page if they have a website, blog, or contact info, you'll find it in there.

Do you accept multiple submissions?
Yes, but please let us know in your cover letter if another publisher is considering your work.

I have more than one manuscript. Can I send more than one?
Yes, but please use the guidelines and send each one separately.

Do you accept First Person Point of View manuscripts?

My manuscript is not completed yet, can I send you a query?
No, please send us a completed and edited manuscript. We cannot accept nor consider a yet-to-be-finished book. If, however, you are one of our contracted authors we will consider a partial.

What is your acceptance rate?
We’re new. As we establish ourselves we’ll post an update. However, having said this, we are looking for quality work. Quantity isn’t something we’re striving for.

Do you accept books from multiple authors?
Not at this time. However, we may put out a call for anthology projects in the future.

How long until you respond to a query?
You will get a response within a week acknowledging receipt of your manuscript. An acceptance or rejection will come no later than 6 – 8 weeks.

Do I need an agent to submit?
No, an agent is not necessary to submit to us.

Do you charge fees to authors to be published?
Never. We are a royalty paying publisher and do NOT charge our authors.

Do I have to be a published author to submit to you?
No, we accept submissions from new and seasoned writers.

If my manuscript is accepted, how long before it is published?
Our goal is to publish e-books no later than a year from time of acceptance. Within your contract we give you a tentative release date.

How often do you pay royalty?
We’ll issue royalty on a quarterly basis as long as a book has earned $20. If not, then it rolls over to the next quarter and added. However, no royalties will be held longer than six months.

What do you offer authors?
Our contract asks for 3 years exclusive worldwide English rights to produce, publish, and sell the Work in electronic rights and print. For print we do state that if your book is not published within a year after your e-book is published we will revert the rights for print back to you and maintain the e-book rights until the duration of the contract.

For readable digital formats: Publisher will pay Author a quarterly royalty of 40% of the list Price, for sales of the Work at the publisher's website, less credit card processing fees for eBooks sold from our site. For digital books sold through outlets requiring distribution discounts, the royalty will be 40% off sales received by the publisher from the distributors, minus vendors discounts, and any handling charges requested by vendors.

For Print on Demand: Publisher will pay Author a quarterly royalty of 20% of the net proceeds for sales directly from the publisher’s website. For print books sold through other distribution outlets, Author will receive a royalty of 20% of the net proceeds.

Can I supply my own cover art?
No. In order to maintain a uniformed look to our books we provide all cover art.

Will my book be edited?
Yes. All of our books will go through several edits until it’s ready to be published.

What happens if you go bankrupt or close shop?
Well, we have no intention of either of those things happening but life has a way of hitting you in the gut at times. IF this ever happens all rights revert back to the author.

What e-book formats will you be selling?
We'll have the universal PDF for our clients. Then again, by the time we launch we may offer our books in other formats along with PDF and print.

Do you provide review copies?
Yes, we will provide a PDF review copy to our authors to offer to reviewers. Plus, we are organizing now to offer reviews of final galleys in PDF before a book is released to begin the buzz for our authors.

Why should I publish with you?
Great question and I won't even go into the usual response about providing a family atmosphere, a home, and a dedication to our authors; these are given statements that all publishers should offer. I'll be open and honest that we are a new publishing house with dreams and aspirations to offer our authors a place where they can help one another with promotions besides the marketing we will do for them. It's hard in this business to get a good start but we aim to do just that. Each year I offer a FREE online writers conference, The Muse Online Writers Conference, and invite writers, editors, publishers, and agents to workshop for a week. I mention this to show you that the dedication to authors began before this publishing house came about, and the same dedication will be offered to the authors of MuseItUp Publishing.
