Why Choose Partnership Publishing With Us?
While being published by traditional methods may seem idealistic, the difficulty of generating sales and establishing a following and a fan base proves to be too frustrating for many writers. Some have given up while others turn to self-publishing, only to discover there are many drawbacks to taking that route. While there are benefits in going the self-pub route, there is also the drawbacks and costs associated, such as:
- Costs of hiring an editor (ALL writers need an editor)
- Layout, design and formatting of your book
- Cover design by professional graphic artist
- Conversion cost into ePub format
- Marketing / promotional costs
- Narrator costs (If you want your book turned into an Audiobook)
- Time spent developing contracts with print/audiobook distributors
- Cost of getting a quality book trailer made
- Cost of setting up other Marketing such a PRWeb, Kirkus Reviews, BlueInkReviews, etc.
- Higher royalty rates
On top of all the above, you also have the time spent each week in marketing. A lot of authors will spend around 10 to 15 hours a week actively promoting their title(s). If you do not have the time to actively promote your book, then our Partnership Program is for you.
All these can equate to costing the author anywhere from $10,000 upwards. That is not including the costs associated with getting Amazon/ VBT (Virtual Book Tour) exposure, time spent on self promoting on various blogs, podcasts and the like.
ASJ Publishing offers a professional alternative to the option. This model has been designed by an International Award Winning author and Film Director/Producer who has “been there and done that”.

The marketing team is headed by Chris Jackson, who has over 20+ years experience in the B2B sector. To see what he has accomplished over the last 20+ years, click here.
Chris’ first novel was published in 2008 by an Indie Traditional Publisher in the US. He quickly learned that he had to do all his own promotion. Virtual Book Tour businesses were few and far between back in 2008. So he spent 365 days straight promotion on dozens of blogs, live podcast shows, BlogTalkRadio, and TV shows. Not to mention heavy promotion on MySpace, Twitter, Tagged, Facebook, and other social media platforms.
That was when he learned the truth of being published. Most publishers require you to do a bulk (if not all) your own marketing.
Over the years, we have developed strategic partnerships in development, publishing and media.
