Author Resources

These private pages are for our authors only, and will help you build your mail list and SELL MORE BOOKS! 😀

We are building these pages as we go, so if there’s anything you’d like to see added, or have any questions, please drop me a note.

Please click on the section below for specific information.

The 10 Little Rules Content Credo

10 Little Rules unequivocally condemns racism, homophobia, antisemitism and criminal behavior. We do not allow any violent or hateful content on our platforms, whether it is aimed at our government, its institutions and elected officials, or against any private citizens or group of citizens of this country. 

At 10LRs, we do not advocate for a particular political candidate or party. We respect our authors’ right to vote as they see fit, and are not in the business of persuading anyone otherwise. Our business is to inspire self-reflection and deeper thought so we may each uncover our own truths.

Freedom of expression is a fundamental right in this country; the First Amendment protects citizens from government censorship. Private companies, however, have the right and the responsibility to monitor — and remove if necessary — content posted on the company’s platforms. (Here’s an excellent article from the Freedom Forum Institute that clearly breaks this down.)

We respect each author’s right to their opinions and beliefs. We are not in the business of telling you how to express yourself on your own profiles or your own businesses. That said, actions have consequences in the business world. If a 10LRS author posts violent or criminal content on their own platforms, we may terminate our working relationship per Section 6 of the signed Collaborative Publishing Agreement.

Ordering author copies

Authors purchase copies of their books from 10LRS, at cost plus 10LRs share of profit, for $9.18/book (current as of 9/16/2020; these figures will change as costs change). These books are considered “fully paid” by 10LRS; you can sell or give away those books without reporting sales to 10LRs.*

*NOTE: If you have existing author copies that you purchased under the original “cost only” agreement, please continue to report sales monthly, and pay 10LRs $5.19 per book for anything sold or given away, until your original “cost only” supply is gone.

Retail/Wholesale orders

Placing books in retail shops and community outlets is a great way to sell more books. We offer a Wholesale Program at a 40% discount and are happy to help cross-promote our retailers. If you have a shop that’s interested in carrying the line let’s make it happen!

Commission Sales

10 Little Rules does not place books on commission. Please refer to our Wholesale Program for retailers interested in carrying our books.

You may place your own fully paid author copies on commission if you wish (Ordering Author Copies above). 10LRS doesn’t provide any tracking or reporting for those.
