Poseidon Books was conceived to provide a service to authors who have not been able to publish a book through conventional risk publishing houses and who are unwilling to pay the large charges levied by vanity publishers.

Poseidon Books is an division of Zeus Publications, a well respected, established bookseller and publisher.  We endeavor to make your job as an author easier, by assisting you wherever we can to get your work out there. We pride ourselves in the high standard of  service we offer to our authors and customers.

There are many publishers in this country, each of them producing many books. Their combined annual output amounts to many thousands of books. However, there are still many more books written each year that never see a bookshelf. Even if a publisher does agree to take on your book, the most you can expect in royalty payments is around five to10%.

We offer you a royalty scheme of 20% of net proceeds of sales of your book.

                                                         Impossible?

Without an established reputation, it is almost impossible to find a publishing house willing to invest in your talent by financing your first book. If one does, the terms are often so bad for the author or photographer that profits are never realized. Some publishers sell a book at retail until costs are recouped and then remainder the rest at deep discounts. The author often never gets any remuneration. It is a risky situation for both the publisher and the author. Once an author  is established, the risks are lower and the gains higher.

 

If you believe in yourself, if you believe that you are a good writer, if you believe you can produce a book that will sell, you should publish your own. Once published, your book can be used to establish yourself as an accomplished expert in your field. It can open doors. It can help garner prestige. It can spread your message or talent to countless other people. It can pave the way to future publication.

                                                  Have confidence in yourself.

If you have confidence in your talents and have something to communicate to others, then let us work with you to make it happen.
Such well-known authors as Edgar Allan Poe, T. S. Eliot, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Lord Byron, Stephen Crane, Rudyard Kipling, Leo Tolstoy, Thomas Hardy, Walt Whitman, James Redfield (The Celestine Prophecy), and Rod McKuen believed in themselves enough to publish their own books. 
If they had not self-published, perhaps we would not know their names today.
