Publishing and Digital Strategies

Anthem Program

A hybrid of traditional and “Next Gen” publishing and distribution for authors seeking more control of their books in the marketplace. This program offers freedom from the constraints of traditional publishing, particularly the long wait for royalties (which can take up to 1.5 years after a sale is made, yet remain subject to arbitrary store returns). The hard reality of the traditional book market is that authors typically make better sales outside of bookstores, especially poets and writers typically underrepresented in the marketplace. The Anthem Program has developed a successful strategy that overcomes these barriers by maximizing and accelerating sales via a strategic combination of traditional and nontraditional methods.
