GMTA is a small publisher publishing through Amazon, Createspace, and Barnes & Noble.
Benefits for publishing with GMTA are free internet promotion, free day promotion through use of the Kindle Direct Select plan, giveaways, blog tours and various internet social marketing techniques. GMTA has worked hard for authors over the past year and a half helping them get more notice on the web and so far we have had overwhelming success. By offering publishing and publishing services we intend to become more a part of that success.
Contracts with us include free internet promotion, production of cover art, creation of blogs, like pages or other social media to help the author gain the attention of the online community and guidance to other avenues of promotions that could further help the author with their works. GMTA does offer help contacting bookstores, and other venues to set up signings and will send a copy of any books published through GMTA to Barnes & Noble through the small publishers program. We also contact Publisher's Weekly with review requests. We have a staff of proofreaders, beta readers, and editors working with GMTA that charge reasonable fees for their services. However, these fees are the responsibility of the author. Though we screen manuscripts submitted to us, no editing will be done unless a contract is accepted and signed.
Our editors work directly with our authors and cover artists to provide the best service possible. We do ask if the author provides artwork for their covers that it be royalty free and from a reputable site, otherwise any artwork used for covers will be provided by GMTA. Cover design and artwork is free for any author published with GMTA, however we do charge modest fees for coverart not created for GMTA authors and more information about that can be found on this site. The only fees GMTA charges authors is $35.00 for the publication of print copies, this fee goes toward paying for the ISBN and Expanded Distribution of the published work.
Contracts for each individual book published with GMTA will be signed and locked in for a full year from the date of acceptance. These contracts are exclusive in the United States though the author can seek publication for the works in other countries if deemed necessary to reach a certain audience.
