    1. Traditional publishing. We will provide a methodology where costs incurred by you to that point are recovered and you are paid a royalty based on sales. Print and promotional costs would be borne by Sid Harta Publishers.
    2. Co-publishing. We would offer to fund the further printing and promotion on the basis of 50-50 with you.
    3. Printing a limited print run. This would usually be between 500 and 1,000 copies. You would fund this cost and we would manage the project for you, providing distribution via our network.
    4. Upload the book worldwide on Amazon and also to eBook platforms.
  2. provide free quotes so you know exactly what your book will cost to publish before outlaying anything.
