KiCam Projects’ mission is to change the world one great story at a time by bringing to life true stories of survival and recovery. Fulfilling that mission means creating publishing opportunities for the everyday person who might not have a background in writing and publishing, as well as for authors whose work might have a smaller niche market.
We developed our author-subsidized partnership program to provide high-quality editing, design, and marketing support for motivated authors who are committed to investing their time and resources to making their books a success.
At KiCam, we recognize that a successful book doesn’t have to sell millions, or even thousands, of copies. Of course we work to sell as many books as possible, but we understand that a project’s impact and value can’t always be measured in sales figures.
We’re also committed to curating our collection to maintain its integrity.
How It Works
Our author-subsidized program isnot a vanity press. It’s an avenue for authors to ensure that their projects adhere to trade publishing standards and receive national marketing and sales support that isn’t possible with self-publishing.
Though authors make an initial investment, they earn royalties of 60% on net sales of their print books and 80% on net sales of e-books.
Our editors evaluate every project we receive for quality and marketability. In some cases, we will recommend an author pursue additional editing to become publishing-ready. For books that need only a bit of polish, we provide the following services for an investment of $5,000:
Personal editorial consultant throughout the production process
Proofreading up to 100,000 words
