Print On Demand

Easy • Simple • Fast

We work hard to make sure self-publishing is easy. If you have completed your 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 into a PDF and upload it, it's that simple.
  2. After you upload your PDF, design your full color cover using our cover wizard or upload a cover you already have.
  3. Place your 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, just to make sure you are happy. Unlike other companies, we don't charge for changes you make 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, the one you have written and rewritten so many times, finally in a book form.

Some compare it to a new born, I beg to differ. Unlike having a child which starts with a moment of pleasure followed by month and years of frustration. A book starts with the frustration and ends with that magical moment.

And did we mention that Membership is FREE!

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, to create an online tool that would serve the traditional authors and be designed from the author's point of view, instead of a programmer's definition. The result is a set of writing tools that reflect the authors work flow from an authors prospective. A collection of tools that are clear and simple to use.

The specialty items are integrated seamlessly into an online word processor that is based on the traditional word processor.

Tools

Along the regular tabs in the word processor 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, multi-chapter options, and an expandable resource tab. All of the options are book project related and can be added or removed to individual projects.

If you add the online access and storage backup along with an entire array of permissions for co-authors, editors and commentators, you will find this free platform just what authors are looking for in the development and finalization steps of their book.

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 a 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 safe and backed-up environment and allows you to collaborate with your co-authors/editors and others in real time, regardless of geographical 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, your 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 books name or that of the author in Google or Bing there is a high probability they will be directed to your book in our bookstore. Just because the online bookstore is big like Amazon doesn’t give it a preferential search result for your book. They still need to know what they are looking for to find you. With that in mind, doesn’t it make sense to place your book where you pay the least and retain the most? Our bookstore comes to mind.

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, we at TheBookPatch charge absolutely nothing and you get to keep 100% of the profit above the printing price. And we do not care 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 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 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 on the 15th of every month for their profits in the previous month as long as they are more than $40 per book (not per author). 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.
