Information for Authors
DayRay Literary Press has avenues to distribute and promote your book not only in the United States and Canada, but also internationally which gives you the best chance for sales. We work very closely on a personalized basis with each author until your book is in print and provide you with excellent customer service at every step along the way.
We publish under the imprint DayRay Literary Press. Our philosophy is that authors deserve to have their work published and be duly compensated. To that end we work closely with our authors to take their work from a manuscript to a highly polished and professionally presented published book. We offer a 50-50 split of the net proceeds of each book sold.
While there are no guarantees that any published book will reach the top of the bestseller lists, we undertake the same risk/reward scenario of our authors. Both hard and soft cover printed books with black & white or color interiors are available.
Having partnered with Ingram Books and Baker & Taylor, the largest distributors of books in North America, your book will be available to over 25,000 bookstores. In Europe we have also partnered with industry leading distributors Gardners Books and Bertram Books. Distribution of printed books in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region is provided by Dennis Jones & Associates. These international distribution partnerships allow our books to be made available to over 13,000 additional bookstores worldwide.
We stand out from other publishers because we provide authors with the option of having their books listed as fully returnable, which encourages bookstores to purchase books.
Your work can also be made available as an e-book, the fastest growing segment in the book industry. For those of you who may not be familiar with the term, an e-book (sometimes also referred to as an electronic or digital book) is an electronic version of a printed book. Some people also choose to have their work published only as an e-book. All e-books published by DayRay Literary Press use DRM (Digital Rights Management) software to guard against copyright infringement of the author's work.
We are currently partnered with distributors worldwide that allow our authors' e-books to be purchased from:
DayRay Literary Press is pleased to announce a new distribution channel for its authors books. Placed primarily in bookstores and libraries, the Espresso Book Machine® (the EBM), a Time Magazine Best Invention of 2007, is essentially an ATM for books. The EBM automatically prints, binds and trims on demand at point of sale perfect-bound library-quality paperback books with full-color covers that are indistinguishable from most books on a bookstore shelf. The EBM can manufacture a 300-page book in less than 4 minutes while the customer waits. Books with black and white interiors will be universally available, while books with color interiors will only be available from certain sites. In addition to Time Magazine, this revolutionary new technology has been featured by The New York Times, Newsweek, Fortune, CNN and NPR.
Other participating publishers of note include John Wiley & Sons, Hachette Book Group, McGraw-Hill, Simon & Schuster, Clements Publishing, Information Age Publishing, Macmillan, University of California Press and W.W. Norton.
In addition to being featured at the Book Fair in London, England and at BookExpo America in New York City, there have been many EBM installations to date with many more planned. In addition to the following locations, current plans include new installations in multiple locations at universities, bookstores and other retailers in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
