  • Authoring Support - For technical topics, independent third-party authors can be engaged to write custom works for you, or you can designate your own author.
     

  • Copyright - You retain full copyrights to your book and license Rampant TechPress as your publisher.
     

  • Cost - You will commit to purchase at least 1,000 printed copies from Rampant for a fixed fee of $9,000-$20,000, depending on the size of your book and the number of copies desired.  For example, $20,000 will cover all production costs to produce a 250 page book with 5,000 copies, only $4 per book.

  • Marketing - The book will appear in the IPG catalog and presented to bookstore buyers worldwide and offered for sale on Amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and many other online booksellers.  Because Rampant does not control the bookstore buyers, we cannot make any promises about the number of printed copies purchased by bookstores.
     

  • New Editions - If you desire subsequent editions of your book, Rampant will provide all re-mastering of subsequent editions for a low fixed cost.

If you have a technical paper on a hot technology that is prohibitive to publish via regular publishers (small market, vendor-centric), we can give you a customized estimate.  Here is the rough breakdown of each dollar spent on technical books:
