How long has Evatopia Press and Evatopia Editions been around?
Although Evatopia Press and Evatopia Editions launched in 2013, it is a division of Evatopia, Inc., which started in 2009. The company’s roots are in literary management and our first success stories came in representing books to Hollywood that were published by other major publishers including Scholastic, St. Martin’s Griffin, Berkley (a division of Penguin), and Simon & Schuster.
Will Evatopia serve as a literary agent to my book?
Evatopia does not represent books as a literary agent. Rather, we serve as book packagers — supporting authors with the necessary services to ensure their books are professional and well received including editing, cover art, and digital formatting.
In what formats do you publish?
We provide digital formatting so that authors may publish their book in both ebook and print formats.
Do you offer an advance to authors for their books?
Evatopia publishing is a service to authors who want to take control of their publishing without spending a fortune. Our clients are those who want to focus on their writing and leave the nuts and bolts of publishing to us. We do not offer author advances, but nor do we charge exorbitant fees that will keep you from realizing your dreams. Authors maintain all rights to their books.
What services do you provide to authors?
We take care of our author’s books from inception of an idea to distribution. We are here to offer as much support as you should need or want. If you want to hire us for an hour to bounce off book ideas for marketability, we’re here. If you need only digital formatting, that’s okay too. Got an idea for a cover, but need an artist? We’ve got you covered. We’ll also help you upload your book to online ebook retailers and use our proven method of selecting keywords and categories to ensure it finds an audience.
Our services can be customized to your needs and budget. A complete list of offerings include: idea development, editing/proofreading, ghostwriting, cover art, digital and print formatting, ISBN registration as well as marketing, distribution and public relations.
May authors take part in book blog tours?
We encourage authors to investigate various marketing opportunities. We have a network of bloggers and vendors who can help you increase your mailing list, get the word out about a book launch, and even entice readers with a cover reveal. We can also consult with you on how to maintain an author website, develop blog posts, and best practices for social media.
Are authors required to make purchases of their own book? For that matter, can authors set the price of their book?
You will have complete control of your author dashboards on every ebook retail site. This means you can set the price as you see fit. Of course, we’ll offer suggestions and guidance on this matter. But if you want to launch a sale, you have the power. If you want to purchase copies of your book, you will be able to do so at the wholesale price straight from your own dashboard. It’s your book and all creative and business ideas are ultimately under your control.
