COLLABORATIVE BOOKS

Everyone has a story!

OVERVIEW

A collaborative book is a compilation of chapters written by different authors. The collaboration itself is a recipe for success because of the power in numbers. By supporting each other, we all benefit. A collaborative book is also great for networking because you get to know all the other authors in the project and extend your reach. Each author pays to participate in the book project.

By participating, they become a contributing author and are listed as the author of the book on Amazon. They can set up an Amazon Central account and connect the book to their author profile.

The collaborative book has one lead author and the proceeds from the sales on Amazon and other distribution channels go to the lead author or the person or organization they designate.

The book is published by Quantum Shift Publishing.
