IBPA GUIDELINES FOR

LEGITIMATE HYBRID PUBLISHING

The Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) guidelines say that a Hybrid Publisher should operate within the following 9-point guidelines: 

This is how Pretty Pug Publishing adheres to these guidelines

1. Define a mission and vision

 

At Pretty Pug Publishing our vision is to have a happy stable of authors, selling their books and getting the personal touch they deserve. We can't guarantee you'll be the next J K Rowling, but we can dream!

2. Vet Submissions

 

As a responsible hybrid publisher, we aren't just looking for any old author who is willing to pay us. Publishing under our own imprint we want to ensure a quality end product hits the digital shelves - and that includes everything from the cover to the editing and layout to most importantly, the quality page-turning content of the book.

3. Publish under its own imprint(s) and ISBNs

 

All books are published under the Pretty Pug Publishing imprint with our own ISBNs.

4. Publish to industry standards

5. Ensure editorial, design, and production quality

 

All publications are edited, laid out, and printed in a 100% professional manner.

6. Pursue and manage a range of publishing rights

 

Tailored especially for you and your books' needs - we offer help and assistance on all marketing channels - including and not limited to Social Media, Online Shops, Pop-up Shops, or Local or National Book Stores.

7. Provide distribution services

 

Tailored especially for you and your books' needs - we offer help and assistance on all marketing channels - including and not limited to Social Media, Online Shops, Pop-up Shops, or Local or National Book Stores.

8. Demonstrate respectable sales

 

The company started in September 2020 when I published my own two books. Sales details will be provided on

9. Pay authors a higher-than-standard royalty

At the time of writing (September 2020) our minimum Royalty payment is 50% - details of Royalties will be given at the initial offer of contract stage.
