I have a small publisher interested in my novel. It's a reputable place that does e-books and POD paperbacks. They've been on the go for a couple of years now and their catalogue is pretty small. Leaving aside the royalty figures, etc, what are the practical implications of getting the book out there? They have a modest publicity department, so I am not expecting big things there. I am expecting to have to push it myself to some extent at least, which doesn't worry me. What I don't want is to sell fifty copies and watch it die. The contract is for two years. I have no other specifics at this time, but I'm presuming for the moment they are more or less standard. I have no agent. If he makes an offer should I start querying agents again, telling them I have an offer? If this relatively new house goes under, would my book necessarily die with it? I suppose I could stipulate in the contract that all rights revert to me in that instance. Is that a done thing? But the main question is, how likely is it I will be able to get the word out there about the book? ( assuming the book isn't a complete POS) How well can a book do with this sort of house? I'm not talking about the one in a million that makes the NYT best-seller list, but on the average. TIA!
