Webpage

Are you tired of chasing sales on Social Media? Validate your Brand as an Author with a webpage.


Who is this for? 

High Maintenance Authors who do not have a website (a  professional platform to sell their books on). 


Why join the High Maintenance Authors webpage? 

Save the cost on a full website, but gain all the benefits of having one. 


How does it work?

We will create your spot on the High Maintenance Authors page including your book(s) to be purchased, your synopsis, an Author photo and bio so potential readers can get to know you, photo galleries, link YouTube videos, customized contact forms that will be linked and forwarded directly to your email address, a calendar for your events and all your social media handles so potential readers can follow you...everything you'd have on your own website! 


Get to the MONEY!

We will print your books, sell and ship your books within 48 hours of each order for only $1.00 per book. You will also cover the cost to purchase your book in print, but it will be deducted from the backend, requiring no up front inventory costs for you. 


EXAMPLE: 

$14.99 Book Retail Price (How much you charge per book)

-$5.00 Book Print Cost (How much you pay per book) 

$9.99 Profit (How much money you make per book)

-$1.00 High Maintenance fee (How much we charge per book)

$8.99 Profit (How much you will per book sold on HMA page)


...as you can selling your books on the High Maintenance Author page will literally only cost you $1.00 per book, and selling with us requires no upfront costs for inventory and no hassle on your end. Your only job is to promote and share the link...vs posting your book on social media and asking potential buyers to 'contact' you to purchase your book.  It's time to level up!
