How it Works
As a contributing author, you will be joining between 10 and 15 other authors who will each write a full chapter in one book. The chapter will be about your story of leaving your native country, arriving in America, and the success that you have experienced here. Most importantly, you will discuss the challenges that you encountered along your journey, and provide encouragement, inspiration, empowerment, and provocation for the reader.
You will be a part of a select group of authors that will participate on (bi-weekly) coaching calls where you will receive writing tips and have a place for accountability and support. Many of the participants will be first-time authors and will benefit from the regular engagement.
The full investment in this project is $499.00 per author. A $199.00 deposit will be due to secure your space in the project. The remaining balance of $300 must be paid in full by March 25, 2017.
The balance will be divided into 3 payments as follows:
Payment Amount Due Date
$100.00 January 25, 2017
$100.00 February 25, 2017
$100.00 March 25, 2017
Contributing authors may pay their full balance earlier than the dates listed.
It is extremely important that each contributing author adhere to this payment schedule and abides by the entire project calendar, in order to ensure this project moves forward accordingly. One author missing his/her payment or turning in an assignment late can delay the project and therefore jeopardize the continuity of the publishing schedule—which impacts all involved. Please keep this in mind when weighing your financial and time commitment to this project.
*Monthly payments will be automatically deducted from the credit card provided upon deposit, unless other arrangements are made with the contributing author.

Commonly asked Questions
How much time will this project take?
This project will take roughly four months to complete. The project is scheduled to begin in January, and it is scheduled to end in March. The book release will take place in April, 2017.
How did you determine the cost of the project and how do I know this is a good deal?
The total cost of this project exceeds $10,000.00. The standard rate for publishing a book of this caliber as a single author is roughly $2,525.00, which only covers the first two bullet points under “The Package”. Each contributing author is saving in excess of $4,000 because of the fact that this is a collaboration project that comes with several offerings—which saves each author money, and allows them to promote their books independently as authors—getting access to multiple book platforms and sharing their story with the world.
Will I receive royalties?
Since this is a book collaboration project facilitated by a lead author, or editor—the lead author/editor will receive direct royalties for books sold. However, each contributing author will receive indirect royalties as they will have the option to purchase books wholesale from the lead author/editor, at prices significantly lower than the retail price, and will be able to resell their books for the full retail cost and keep 100% of the proceeds.
Will I have a copyright to my works?
Yes. Each contributing author automatically owns the copyright for their work, simply by writing their chapter. Information on registering your copyright with the U.S. Copyright Office, which provides legal protections for your work, will be provided during the program.
How long will my chapter be?
Each chapter will need to be no more than 3,000 words, which equates to approximately 7.5 typed single-spaced pages on 8.5” by 11” paper.
Who is the book publisher?
ZION Publishing House is the chosen book publisher for this project. ZION is a trusted publishing company based in Southern California and Washington, DC. They work with authors seeking to self-publish self-help, Christian, and inspirational works. You can learn more about ZION here.
