Happy Tree partnership publishing

We offer 'partnership publishing' for some projects under our Happy Tree (TM). Partnership publishing enables authors to invest in their project and in return they are paid substantially higher royalty rates or 'dividends' than conventional publishing models. As such, it sits somewhere in between 'conventional publishing' and 'self publishing'.
Partnership publishing is not available for all books. Submissions are still subject to assessment in terms of their suitability for our programme . Assessment is largely based on (a) overall merit; (b) overall suitability for our particular publishing market (this varies from publisher to publisher); and (c) viability. Assessment can take a little while but we endeavour to provide a decision as soon as possible.
More details about our partnerhips publishing scheme will be available shortly.
