Kick-start your sales with discounted prices from your own web page during early promotion

Writing your book was probably difficult enough but as has been made clear elsewhere on this site, expecting sales to automatically take off is more a hope than expectation. Our most successful authors have worked hard at it with our help in order to kick-start their sales.

One of the tools in our armoury is to give early birds a discounted copy of your book. But with retailers and their intermediaries taking a 60% margin, what are the chances of doing that?


ShieldCrest offers all our authors the option of having their own feature web page on our site where their books can be sold at cost with just the author royalty added. Purchasers can pay on-line and we do the rest. This is particularly helpful following book signings or when arranging newspaper or radio interviews where authors promote their web address for discounted purchases after publicity about their book.
