seasons are not the same as the everyday calendar
seasons to which you are
accustomed. The SPRING publishing season includes
the months of February,
March, April, May and June. FALL includes July,
August, September and October.
WINTER includes November, December and January.
example, to be presented at the WINTER 2013-2014
sales conference, which takes
place in August, we must place your book on the
Ronin Title List by March 10,
means that you and
Ronin must have negotiated and signed a
co-publishing agreement before then. If we
miss this deadline, we can
certainly proceed with your book—but it will have to
wait for the SPRING 2014
sales conference to be presented and get into the
actual publishing stream. That
conference takes place November 2013.
“presented” at this Sales Conference is extremely
important for your book’s
success and is a major reason for co-publishing with
arrangement can offer you anything even close to our
distributor’s sales and
distribution powerhouse. Of course, we will gladly
work with you to co-publish
your book anytime, and then make sure that it is
presented at the next Sales Conference, whenever
that occurs. But for maximum
impact and the best market penetration, you will
want to move quickly into
co-production so that your book will be presented as
soon as possible.
If you think you may have a Ronin Publishing book in one of our fields of specialization, contact us. We focus on self-help, medicine, life skills (with attitude), spirituality, psychedelia, and a “fringe series” of unusual and offbeat topics, such as ghost hunting and underground comics. Send us a query about your finished manuscript that you are seeking to publish as a book.
Traditional publishing is scheduled in “Seasons” — Spring, Fall, and Winter.
Our distributor holds a Sales Conference to launch each Season during which books forthcoming in that season are presented to the Sales Team. In order to get your book on board for a season, it must first be added to the Title List by a particular deadline.
In order to meet these
deadlines, if you co-publish with Ronin the Publishing
Agreement will have to be signed before your book can
be placed on the Title List, the first step in
marketing and selling your book.
