We are proud to use TheBookPatch.com as our preferred print vendor. The platform allows us to print high-quality, perfect bound books at an affordable cost.
We would also highly recommend this platform to any of our poets or readers looking for a print vendor.
In order to offer the quarterly for purchase through TheBookpatch.com, we had to mark up the price $.01 from the wholesale cost. This was the minimum mark-up required by TheBookPatch.com in order to offer the quarterly in their bookstore. Prices vary subtly due to the wholesale cost. We will always only mark up the cost $.01 in order to comply with regulations set out by TheBookPatch.com.
As we are a not-for-profit company, we’ve included below the process for payouts from TheBookPatch.com. After reading it, you’ll see we would need to “sell” 4,000 of a quarterly in order to be receive a payout. If and when that happens (because never say never), we will donate 100% of it directly to The Nashville Public Library under the name Nashville Poets Quarterly & celebrate that donation with you all via our social pages.
TheBookPatch.com pays out thusly:
Authors (in our case, NPQ) receive 100% of sale profits, no fees, commissions or royalties . Each book an author has in the store is paid out separately once the book has reached a profit of $40. Checks are mailed on the 15th of the following month and are withheld if the US dollar amount of the profits is not above $40.
