The Four Main Types of Publishing Deal

(Critical Knowledge from the Premium Content)

One of the most common questions I get asked is this: "Is DreamEngine a vanity publisher? What kind of deal should I accept or expect when I put myself out there?"  

the answer to the first question is an emphatic, "NO! We are not a vanity press," and the answer to the second question is the subject of this video.

Publishing - like the business side of almost all art endeavours - is changing, so I have put this video together to make things clear. 

I hope you love it!

  • To walk along a beach and see someone reading your book?

Meeting with David was an epiphany for me. It took me a month to fully grasp David´s advice, but it did sink in and when I started to write again, I just felt so FREE and infinitely more creative. My book is now complete, and I am so, so proud of it. I am sitting here looking at two contracts to publish, both from reputable and well-known publishing houses and with more potential offers due in shortly.
