- UFODATA Electronic Bookstore
The UFO subject is one of the most controversial subjects you could imagine,
it is just as controversial here in Leeds as it is in Outer Mongolia or the
The greatest three pronged question is asked the world over.
�Who are we? What are we? And where are we from?�
Scientists and scholars the world over have pondered those three little
questions for a millennia, some claim to have answers but like many others
before them it seems to be personal opinion and not proven facts that are
relied upon for answers.
Scientific papers, peer reviewed articles and publication into the orthodox
world costs thousands of pounds worth of funding with no guarantees of
reward at the end of what can be sometimes a lifetimes work.
Such is the world of publishing.
To get a book published you have to have an agent and to get an agent you
need to have had a book published or so it must seem to hundreds of
researchers and writers who have manuscripts that deserve publication,
information that deserves an outlet and hundreds of hours of research and
results that are stuck on a shelf not getting the exposure they deserve.
Well UFODATA has an answer for all of you that have your work caught up in
the �looking for an agent� trap.
We here at UFODATA have been involved around the publishing game for some
time now and we know the difficulties that face first time and even
accomplished authors to get their hard work into print.
Here�s where we can help.
We have online our own e-book & CD-book publishing department.
An ever growing selection of titles are being made available to us for
electronic download or direct purchase on CD-Rom by way of a simple but
effective publishing agreement between publisher and writer.
In the publishing world, even when you have your title in print publishers
and agents can make it seem like forever before the writer sees any
financial reward for their (now out of their control) hard work.
Sometimes first pay cheques are not received until 12 months after the
launch of the title, you might get a small advance (first time writers
rarely do) but of course all that has to be clawed back before any other
royalties end up in the authors bank account, that�s the way it is and has
been for many years.
All you need to do is forward your work, electronically to us at UFODATA. We
will layout the pages and place all images etc in e-book format, we can
create a cover if this has not already been done and display the title with
any reviews and a synopsis, along with a short sample of the text in our
electronic book store.
If a reader wishes to purchase the title they can either buy an electronic
download or order a CD-Rom version for delivery to their home.
The site is fully secure and downloads can�t be made until payment is made.
Every month we will furnish the author with a statement of sales of their
particular title and arrange electronic transfer of their earnings into
It is as simple as that.
Of course there is an agreement to sign between the two parties, nothing too
scary but in essence it is a release cover for any images that might be used
and also covers the responsibility and liability of the author and his work.
We also promise to inform via our own literary agency publishers of how our
e-titles are selling and look into getting a publishing deal for our
Any arrangements between UFO DATA and an author can be terminated by giving
six months notice or by mutual agreement between parties.
UFODATA reserve the right to remove any libellous, illegal or unsuitable
material from their system without notice or compensation to the author.
