Who we are.
Alternatepress Limited/eSensual Books is a royalty paying, full-service ePublisher. This means that we do not charge fees to the author at any time to publish their work.
We do not publish print/paper based products, partly because we are environmentally concerned, but also because we consider the developing all-electronic platforms for consumers of fiction offer much more than traditional printed media. It is our opinion that print publishing is a risky and frustrating venture for both publisher and author.
Our speciality is dual e-Book and Audio Book (eB/A) editions. We believe that this is becoming a preferred combination for many consumers of fiction in general and for particular genres. Erotica is just one example. As a consequence we look for high quality, economically written, engaging stories that will work well in both text and audio mediums.
We pay a competitive royalty rate of the net retail income for eBooks, and of net retail income for audio, based on our standard three year contract.
Distribution of our e-Books is through our own e-commerce platform, Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Sony, Apple and other commercial distribution agreements. Audio is also distributed through our own platform and through Audible.com, iTunes, Amazon etc.
Why we are doing this.
We are writers who want to write good stories, have them presented well to our audience and in the company of excellent work by like minded authors. We are also consumers of good fiction and expect value for money from our purchases.
There are so many different publishers and publishing ventures that authors can create for, getting published can be a confusing and frustrating experience. We intend to improve the quality of that experience by being open, honest and straightforward with our authors, editors, and contributors and of course our consumers.
We want to make a marketplace for you and ourselves that is recognised for its innovation, quality, value and unique style. We also want us all to make money as a fair reward for all our hard work
