Digital Future Press signed a Contract

contract I, Karen Tyrrell signed my FIRST contract on behalf of Digital Future Press. Digital Future Press, my indie publishing imprint now has a book distributer.

I’m so excited I can barely breathe.  Hubby Steve and I had discussions with a distributer for over 3 months!

Yes, it took that long for me to be 100% sure.

Fingers crossed: this contract will be the right one.

For me, this contract was BETTER than one with a mainstream book publisher or an agent.

WHY? I have total control over my books, my writing and my publishing business.

 Why does Digital Future Press want a Distributer?

In 2015, my husband Steve Tyrrell joined Digital Future Press as a director and my business adviser. My books are currently stocked in most stores in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Dymocks Penrith. Steve as my roadie, actively participates in my pantomime, storytelling and signing events.

Steve couldn’t keep up with the demand of physically distributing books to stores. Plus keeping track of all the consignment orders and invoices. A distributer will streamline our outreach.

Contract Tips for Writers

Remember there’s more than one pathway to publishing other than the traditional publishing model. Consider becoming an indie publisher.

  1. Research the company who’s serving the contract. Thoroughly.
  2. Talk to authors who signed with the company and request information on their experiences.
  3. Make sure you understand what every clause in the contract means and how it will impact on you.
  4. Ask a lot of questions until you are 100% sure this contract will help you and your business.
  5. Seek legal advice if unsure of the contract agreement. I recommend Alex Adsett.
  6. Signing a contract with a book publisher or an agent can be wonderful  too. Its all about the contract. But remember there’s more than one pathway to publishing! Good luck 🙂
