Get Published by a Fast-Growing, Fair and Friendly Publisher
Are you a musical author looking to get published by an exciting, dynamic and growing brand with some of the best royalties in the business?
Fundamental Changes sold over 26,000 paperbacks, and over 25,000 eBooks last year, and we are looking to grow by taking on new writers.
We are actively looking for writers to publish, no matter what instrument or style you are writing for. So far, Fundamental Changes have published over thirty books for musicians, mainly for guitarists and are one of the best-selling brands on Amazon.
Fundamental Changes are looking for writers of musical instruction books for any instrument, Piano, Bass, Saxophone, Drums or Strings etc. to help build our brand and to help new writers get published.
There are no upfront costs to you, and all profits are split 50/50 between the author and publisher. While an old-school publishing house may give you around 8%-15% of the cover price of your book, we manage to get you just over 40% for a PDF sale and around 26% for a traditional Paperback or eBook sale, depending on format. Royalties are paid every two months.
We have excellent links with MusicSales, one of the biggest music education distributions companies in the world so we can actually get your book into stores and listed by Water Stones and other high street bookstores. However, it must be said that these days 90% of our sales come from Amazon as you might expect.
Fundamental Changes aims to be different from traditional publishers by creating a communal, collaborative atmosphere where ideas are freely exchanged and everyone is supported. Because we share the profits equally, everyone is just as invested in making your book a success.
