Print On Demand

Easy • Simple • Fast

We work hard to make sure book publishing on your own (self-publishing) is easy. With a completed manuscript, you can have a printed book in your hands in a matter of days.

  1. Select the desired print size for your book and then convert your manuscript to that size and save it as a PDF and upload it.
  2. Next upload your full color cover or use our cover creator page to create your cover.
  3. Your book is ready; all you need to do is order. You can order a single copy or as many as you want. (Checkout the calculator for our amazing quantity discounts).

Your book will be printed in 2 - 3 business days.

We recommend you order one copy first, just to make sure you are happy. Unlike other companies, we don't charge you when you make changes to your book. There are no set up fees, royalties, or hidden charges.

It's easy, simple, and fast. As an author you should not have to deal with the hassle of preprinting and production. We do that for you.

It's hard to describe the first time you hold the book you have written. The elation of seeing your name on the cover and the printed pages with your story unfolding, the one you wrote and rewrote so many times, finally in a book form.

Some compare it to a newborn child, but I beg to differ. Unlike having a child, which starts with a moment of pleasure followed by month and years of frustration, book publishing starts with frustration and ends with a magical moment.

Free Tools To Write Your Book Online

Text Editor

TheBookPatch was developed by a #1 New York Times Best Selling Author of both fiction and nonfiction. His goal was to create an online tool that would serve established as well as first time authors in keeping with the author's point of view, and not the whims of a programmer. The result is a set of writing tools that adhere to the authors work flow from an author's prospective. A collection of comprehensive and easy to use writing tools.

The specialty items are integrated seamlessly into an online word processor that mimics Microsoft Word.

Tools

Along with the regular tabs in the word processor ribbon, such as File, Print, Spell Check, etc., there are new tabs developed and designed specifically for authors, such as Cast of Characters, Authors Notes, Chapter Outlines, an amazing multi-storyline development tool, and an expandable resource tab. All of the options are book project related and can be added or removed from individual projects.

Adding the online access and backup storage along with an entire array of permissions for multi author collaboration with editors and commentators, you will find this free platform just what authors were dreaming about.

Multi Storyline

The multi-story line option is a unique tool exclusive to the TheBookPatch word processor. It allows multiple storylines to be developed consecutively from a single idea, either as varying scenarios by a single author or a collaborative effort by many simultaneously.

Access From Anywhere

TheBookPatch is in fact an online cloud-publishing tool, using the Internet as a means for authors to access their work from any computer on the web at any time. Saving your work in a secure and backed-up environment and allows you to collaborate with your co-authors/editors and others in real time, regardless of geographic restrictions. It also protects the data from computer failure, because the work is stored on our cloud. To provide our users extra peace of mind our system allows secondary backup of the files to your own computer with no restrictions.


Sell a Book

In Our No Fee Bookstore

There are many ways you as a self-published author can sell your books. Book fairs, local independent bookstores (they usually like to promote local talent), and of course the online bookstore. Before you place your book in an online store there are a few things you should know.

How will readers find my book?

We at TheBookPatch update the search engines regularly and they send their robot crawlers to seek whatever new information we post (your book in the bookstore is new information). So if someone is looking for your book and enters the book title or the authors name in Google or any search engine there is a high probability they will be directed to your book in our bookstore. Consider that just because an online bookstore is big, like Amazon for example, doesn’t give it a preferential search result for their books. With that in mind, doesn’t it make more sense to place your book where you pay the least and retain the most? Remember we take no fees, you get 100% of your markup.

How much of the books retail price will I keep?

Unlike most other online bookstores such as Amazon or Barnes & Noble which charge up to 55% of the retail price of your book, (and you pay for the printing and shipping from your 45%) we at TheBookPatch charge absolutely nothing and you get to keep 100% of the profit above the printing price. And we do not mind if you sell in the other stores as well.

No Fees

We at TheBookPatch are one of the few, if not the only NO FEE online bookstore. Once the online printing cost has been determined (based on book dimensions, number of pages and type of binding) you will be asked to determine your retail price. The only restriction you have as an author and self-publisher is that the price you determine cannot be less than the online printing cost. (Any time you the author / publisher sign in and order a book you will pay the printing cost only). When a book sells in the bookstore to others you will receive 100% of the markup.

We pay our authors/publishers around the 15th of every month for their profits in the previous month as long as they are more than $40 per title (every title is considered a separate project). If the profit in a certain pay period is less than $40, the amount rolls over to the next period.

We do not take any percentage of your markup (the amount you added on to the printing price to create the sale price). There are no hidden fees and the book buyer pays for the shipping and handling (we keep that at a bare bone minimum with various shipping options). Once you place the book in our bookstore, you can sit back and let us do the rest.

Why buy an ISBN?

ISBNs are linked to essential information allowing book-sellers, and readers, to know what book they are buying, what the book is about, and who the author is. ISBNs are the global standard for identifying titles. ISBNs are used world-wide as a unique identifier for books. They are used to simplify distribution and purchase of books throughout the global supply chain. Most retailers require ISBNs to track book inventory. Without an ISBN, you will not be found in most book stores, either online or down the street from your house. Buying an ISBN is the first step to self-publish a book to insure that your book is not lost among the +700,000 titles published a year in English alone.
