More than 90% of a founder's communication is done through writing. Yet many founders lack the skills and confidence to write effectively—and their companies are struggling because of it.
Great Founders Write is not another grammar book. Instead, it explores the principles of communication and leadership through research and real-life examples. Not only will you learn the essentials of writing well, but how to become a clearer thinker and successful founder.
The book publishing industry is broken. Authors have three no-good options:
- Traditional Publisher: They pay you a small advance but give you no support where it counts: Writing and marketing. Your success is up to you alone.
- Pay-to-Play: Publishing services like Scribe Media will help you write, publish, and promote your book. But you're paying for the deliverable, not performance. Like an agency, these services are NOT invested in your success.
- Self-Publish: The cheapest way to become an author is to do it yourself, but you get no writing, publishing, or marketing support.
Now there's a better way: Partner Publishing with Damn Gravity.
Our business model is simple: We don't make a profit until you do.
We're a full-service publishing company, but we're also invested in the performance of your book. We start marketing your book from Day 1 and will continue promoting it for up to a year after publishing.
Partner publishing is riskier than pay-to-play or traditional publishing models. We don’t make a profit on your book if it doesn’t perform. And that’s why we prefer it.
We believe in our authors and our ability to help them create world-class books. We want to be part of your success — true partners.
Our model is simple: We don't make a profit until you do.
As the author, you pay for the upfront cost of publishing your book. We put our expertise to work to make it a success. Once you make your money back, we'll start earning royalties for sales thereafter.
We're flexible with our profit-sharing agreements, but here's an example schedule (percentage indicates the author's portion):
- $0 - 26,100 net sales (after distribution fees) — 100%
- $26,101 - 50,000 — 80%
- $50,001 - 75,000 — 70%
- $75,001 - 100,000 — 65%
- $100,001 - 250,000 — 60%
- $250,001 - 1,000,000 — 55%
- $1,000,000+ — 52%
While success is never guaranteed, we’re confident in two key areas: Producing world-class books and creating a winning promotion strategy.
We work with experienced writers and editors to produce your book. Our Collaborative Creative Culture (CCC) helps us produce better ideas than any individual could on their own. See for yourself by taking part in one of our Brain Trust meetings.
We also have a unique approach to promoting your book: Writing-in-Public (WIP). We use the entire book production process–up to 9 months–for marketing and promotion. By the time we get to launch, you’ll have a large, invested audience ready to buy your book and help you spread the word.
Damn Gravity invests more time and energy into our authors than any other publishing service. Therefore, we’re highly selective in who we choose to work with.
We partner with authors with the experience, expertise, and commitment to produce a successful book. All of our books are focused on business, entrepreneurship, technology, and personal development.
