FAQs


1. Do I need an ISBN? – You do not actually need an ISBN number but we advise to have one, because it does give more credibility to your book. The ISBN is a one-off fee.

2. What would the publisher name be when published for sale, for example, on amazon.co.uk? – The publisher will be listed as ‘Symonds Publishing’.

3. Who are ‘Symonds Publishing’? We are academics and a husband and wife team.

4. How often will I get paid royalties for my book? Royalties on your book will be paid every 4 months directly to your PayPal or Bank account.

5. How can i check the sales? – We will send you a report generated directly from the payment gateway with exact statistics on your sales.

6. Who decides the publishing price of my book? We will make a suggestion, but ultimately you can decide the price of the eBook/paper book. Our aim and philosphy and reason for starting ‘Symonds Publishing’ originally is to try and offer affordable books to students and to other academics and to make your work more accessible and ultmately more available for referencing and reading. For this reason we tend to suggest prices of between £10 and £20 for example.

7. Who would own the copyright? You own the content of your book but we would own the formatting of the book. We would provide you with a copyright/Assignation document to sign with everything documented for the benefit of both parties.
