animals, friends, family, neighbors and colleagues.

Raise money for yourself, club, group or organization selling our books. (Click the Amazon link below to preview our current publishing list.) This is a superb entrepreneurial experience for children. The logistics are quite manageable, efficient and fun.
This can be a one-time or continuing partnership.

Our talented authors and illustrators have produced some splendid books in fiction, non-fiction, children, detective, sci-fi, romance, and delicious cookbooks too.

Our entire publishing list is available for fundraising. Currently, we have 30 titles in print appealing to a wide customer base giving you a nice variety to choose from when selecting your Starter Kits below.

As a rule of thumb, depending on the title, you can earn $5 to $20 per sale. The average retail price is $9.95. (The lowest priced book is $4. The highest price is $24.95.) You have permission to sale your inventory below retail pricing to stimulate sales. You can raise $2,500+ pretty quickly, depending on the size of your group, club or organizational efforts. More if you utilize social media.

KIDS (Up and Coming Young Entrepreneurs)
Earn your own money selling books from our publishing list. This is so much better than having a paper route. The sky is the limit. Introduce yourself with a polite, inviting smile and the world welcomes you. Based on your efforts, knowledge of your product, positive attitude, personality & customer service you will learn salesmanship, inventory management, fulfillment, responsibility, accountability and cash.

A. Childrens Storybooks & Companion Coloring Books - $4 each
B. Paperback Novels - $5 each
C. Cookbooks - $7 each
D. Delivery 3-5 weeks (plan accordingly)
E. All orders must be prepaid
(Cash, Check, Money Orders & Credit Cards accepted)
F. Freight 85 cents per book

1. These are your books to use in your sales presentations.

2. Having books available to sell gives you immediate access to your funds. It also saves you from fulfillment responsibilities later on which can be problematic, time consuming or labor intensive.

3. If you take orders using prepaid order sheets, it is your responsibility for fulfillment. This can be accomplished by offering a centralized pick-up location. It is cost prohibitive for you to mail books to individual customers.

Our business model is highly efficient. We only print books where we have prepaid purchase orders.

You may sell our books on your websites. We will supply you with books at wholesale Starter Kit pricing for your fulfillment needs.

Fundraising offline is limiting in scope because of the localized footprint but you will have immediate access to the money you collect.

Whether you are a scout, band, orchestra, drill, dance, cheer or youth church member, coach or soccer mom trying to raise money for uniforms, equipment, travel; or a teacher needing money for classroom supplies, field trips or parties; or a fairgrounds manager needing to raise funds for a 4th of July fireworks celebration; a food pantry; animal sanctuary; or helping with some grave community tragedy (fire, accident, illness, funeral expenses, medical bills) we will help you raise money.

You determine how to best maximize your fundraising efforts. Depending on the size of your group and the far-reaching global implications of social media (Facebook, Instagram, Kickstarter, Pinterest, Twitter, Linkedin, etc.) you will be amazed at how much you can do for those you are trying to help. Using the power and vastness of social media you can generate online sales beyond the scope of just setting up tables outside of big box stores or canvassing neighborhoods, ringing door bells. In fact, using the internet, your tipping point can come as early as overnight, earning you far more than your projected goals or expectations!

Depending on your club, group or organizational reach, you can expand your fundraising efforts into many countries in tremendous ways. High school exchange programs & foreign language classes can benefit greatly by partnering with their sister cities/schools.

Utilizing Amazon, Amazon Global and iTunes our books in three formats: print, eBooks and audiobooks are sold in approximately 110 countries including USA, Canada, Australia, France, Mexico, Spain, Brazil, Italy, Portugal, Japan, India, Germany, United Kingdom, Wales, England, Ireland, Scotland, the Netherlands, South Africa, South Korea, China, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, etc. Imagine the possibilities

Contact us when you are ready to begin raising some serious money for your event.

Good luck with your fundraising efforts.
