Christian Authors For World Relief
Posted by adventbiblestudy on July 26, 2015
Attention all Christian writers and nonprofit organizations. I’ve been discussing a concept with some people in different parts of the world to see how we can create a network to work with each other and both sides can benefit. What do you think?
Authors donate their works to nonprofit organizations who print those books in countries it costs a fortune to ship to. The nonprofit organizations sell those books to raise funds to cover operating costs. Here is the basic concept.
Authors must own all copy rights on their books and have total control over those copy rights. Authors enter into an agreement that protects both parties. Nonprofit organizations overseas receive electronic copies of those books with limited distribution rights. Nonprofit organizations have books printed locally and handle price and distribution. Nonprofit organizations cover the costs of printing, taxes, translations, and other costs. There is no financial risk to authors. Books can be sold in print and electronic forms.
In return, authors receive data and use that data to market their books by advertising world wide distribution figures. This can help boost sales in markets the author is selling their books.
Both parties benefit and no one takes a risk. Nonprofit organizations use those books sales as a fund raising campaign to raise funds for printing and operating costs. And best of all, we establish a network to get the word out to parts of this world hardest to reach.
We can establish a website where nonprofit organizations choose which books will work best in their areas. Enter into an agreement with the authors, and receive electronic files ready for printing. Authors receive a new venue of online advertising, and new authors have a source of information and can establish personal contact with experienced writers to help them get started. We establish a reliable list of resources writers can use while helping some of the most needy people in the world. Nonprofit organizations can also network with each other and find more efficient ways to provide services and raise funds. A reserve fund will also be established so when we need to, we can quickly get much needed printed material to refugees and areas hit by natural disasters. At the same time, a network can quickly spread the word which established organizations are answering the call for aid and where people can donate for immediate relief.
