Writing a Book That Will Change the World?

Panoply Publishing sets out to accomplish two very important goals in today’s ever-changing publishing landscape:

(1) Publish quality books that positively impact their readers.

(2) Pay our authors up to 70 percent of net profits from their perfectbound (paperback) books and 85% of net profits from their ebooks.

We do this by vetting the books that come through our doors based largely on the merit of the writing, and asking each author applicant to answer this question:

In 100 words or less, how will your book change the world for the better?

Not every book will be a best-seller, but important books with small audiences still deserve to be published. So we will work with each author, as needed, to help them develop a platform through which to sell their books. And each author retains the full rights to their titles, meaning they can pursue international rights, video and movie rights, etc. Panoply Publishing gives its authors an indie publishing experience, coupled with traditional distribution and an experienced editorial and production team.

Panoply Publishing also offers an online bookstore with a tracking system that gives its authors up-to-date information about their buyers, including contact information (on the condition of a signed NO SPAMMING contract). So you not only know when you’ve made a sale – you also know who bought your book!

All Panoply Publishing authors are eligible for a 33 percent discount on specific marketing services. Depending on your subject and its inherent popularity, marketing service fees may be waived.

About Us

If you are a writer, Laura Orsini, founder and creative director of Panoply Publishing, is probably a lot like you. She’s been writing since she could hold a pen. She has a love of fonts, the English language, great stories, and books that teach others how to do things by shortening the learning curve. More than anything, she has a desire to help authors succeed.

Laura has been working with international authors to help them write, publish, and market great books for nearly 20 years. While she feels that most authors are better positioned if they publish their own books, many do not want to undertake the seemingly myriad steps to get their books into print and out into the world. Panoply Publishing is for them.

Surrounded by a great team of editors, designers, marketers and other book people, she will take great care for you and your book because she understands what few people do: that your book is important to you because you know it will be important to others.
