Frequently Asked Questions
What happens if I decide to republish my book with another publisher sometime in the future?
If necessary, you may cancel your publishing agreement with us at any time, without cause or explanation, with thirty days’ written notice.
Who owns the publishing rights to my book when I publish through Wheatmark?
You do. By signing our publishing agreement, you grant us the nonexclusive right to publish your book for as long as you like. We make no claim to any of your auxiliary rights, either, such as your electronic rights, your audiobook rights, or your foreign and translation rights.
In which genres do you publish?
Wheatmark publishes both fiction and nonfiction titles. Our services are designed to best serve the following three types of clients:
1. Professionals, business owners, entrepreneurs, and other product and service providers who want to grow their business by becoming a published author
2. Fiction authors who wish to compete directly with the other top authors in their genre
3. Serious hobbyists with a killer idea for a niche title
Wheatmark does not publish poetry, and rarely publishes illustrated children’s books.

Where are your prices?
Wheatmark is a by-invitation-only publishing service. Due to the professional-level quality of the services we provide and the investment in time and money necessary to achieve the goal of publishing a book that competes with any other in its genre in the marketplace, we are not the right option for most publishing projects. For others, we are the perfect fit.
