We're proud to partner with book coaches and publishing consultants around the world to provide professional publishing services that help your clients' dreams comes true. Once you've taken your client to the stage where they are ready to start the publishing process, that's where we come in.
As a publishing consultant, book coach, or author mentor, your main goal is to help your clients create the best book possible. Once the manuscripts are finished and the design ready to go, for many that is the end of the relationship. However...
With Vervante, you have the ability to offer your clients complete idea-to-finished-product services.
We offer you the ability to continue to guide your author through the self-publishing process by overseeing the process of ordering sample copies, approving all print and design decisions, and placing the actual, physical book in your clients' hands as you celebrate this joyful milestone.
This is all done using an account you've set up with Vervante where you oversee the process of uploading files, approving samples, and ordering first runs, while your client can focus on marketing, sales or even working on their next book.
Once your client is ready to take over, they can create their own personal account with Vervante and we will transfer all book files to their account.
NO ONE ELSE allows admin-type solutions like these that benefit both you AND your client.

These are perfect for special events, upgrades, book signings, or to offer as special bonuses. You can easily add these options to your services, offering lucrative bonus services and products that authors will love.
Vervante allows you to collect customer contact information for all book sales. Other publishers, such as CreateSpace, do not.
This is not usually on the radar for new authors, but it's a game-changer. Especially for those who are also entrepreneurs, business owners, or want to keep in touch with loyal readers:
We love Amazon - who doesn't? And we believe that Amazon is definitely one of the best places for authors to maximize both visibility and sales. But for authors who are also business owners or entrepreneurs, we offer a better solution than other publishers, such as CreateSpace, for complete control of book sales, the ability to gather customer contact information, and some of the best royalties in the industry.
Here's why you can't collect customer information when using CreateSpace: When an author redirects the buy button for their book to their listing on Amazon, the buyer officially becomes Amazon's customer. Amazon does not share customer contact information, leaving the author in the dark about who is buying their book.
Here's how Vervante is different:
While we DON'T recommend redirecting buyers from the author's landing page directly to Amazon, we DO suggest using Amazon as a secondary retail distribution channel. Amazon Marketplace is a great option for selling books and products on Amazon. We'll handle all of the details from listing the book on Amazon to managing and shipping orders.
Authors can have it all!
✔ Sell from their site
✔ Make more money on the book
✔ Collect customer data and build their list
✔ Sell on Amazon
And we'll take care of all the details!
We receive so many questions about using Vervante vs. other publishers like CreateSpace that we've created a special report with more details you can read here. Please let us know if you have any questions about these comparisons, we're happy to help.
While other publishers may offer cheap rates for initial press runs to the author, there are usually hidden costs. These special prices are commonly only applicable for bulk orders placed by authors for their own title. However, this leaves them shouldering the responsibility of storing the books in their home or office, supplying packaging, processing payments, addressing packages, and taking them to the Post Office for shipping, steadily chipping away at their bottom line - and adding time and stress to the process.
Vervante will print and ship books directly to customers. A copy of the order confirmation email generated from the author's shopping cart is all we need to print and ship the book. We can print and ship on demand or we can print bulk orders at further reduced costs, with the option of storing in our warehouse until they are needed. This helps authors avoid the expense and hassle of processing and shipping their own books.
While some people opt to list books with Baker & Taylor or Ingram, this can result in resellers taking the opportunity to sell your book through their own services, underbidding the set author price, and devaluing the book. Even if your clients are not writing a book for the money, when they try to offer their books at events, as promotions, or to support other products and programs, this causes the book to lose its value in the eyes of consumers.
Retaining control of the book's price is essential to retaining its perceived value. Listing books with a wholesaler like Baker & Taylor releases control and can result in plummeting sale prices and royalties. Whereas selling and distributing through a personal sales page and shopping cart, as well as using Vervante's Amazon Marketplace listing services, retains control of the book - and ensures the continuation of its value.
Have you ever noticed when searching for a book on Amazon that there are a number of resellers offering the book at random prices? This is because the book has been listed with a wholesaler such as Baker & Taylor or Ingram and resellers then sell the book on Amazon at their discretion. The end result is that prices can drastically fluctuate, causing buyer confusion and devaluing the book even more.
We have dedicated publishing professionals who will answer your emails and talk to you on the phone. Something pretty much unheard of in this industry.
Authors retain all rights and creative control of their books and products. And we offer complete services for ISBNs, UPCs, LCCN Assignment and Copyright registration. You even have the option to list yourself or your own company as the publisher of your book.
However, if you use CreateSpace's template builder for your cover, they technically own the artwork for your book. And if you use their ISBN services, they own the ISBN and are listed as the publisher. This means if you decide to use alternative publishing services in the future, you must get a new ISBN and new design for your book.
We'll work with you and your client to get their book published, distributed, listed on Amazon, shipped to speaking events, and whatever other support you need.
We stand behind our products and services, creating the highest quality books and products for our clients supported by the best in customer service. If you are not delighted with your experience with Vervante, we pledge to work with you to make it right - or we will refund your money. Furthermore, all products we publish are guaranteed against defects in quality and design. If any of our products are defective in quality, we will replace or repair that product at no additional charge.
We welcome the opportunity to support you and your clients' publishing needs. If you have any questions or would like to discuss future projects, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or schedule a phone call by clicking here.
