Behind the Red Door

RedDoor Publishing is a small press that set up in 2014, operating as a hybrid between traditional and self-publishing services.

Interested writers submit their book manuscripts in the usual way, and these are subjected to an editorial selection process. Once a manuscript has been selected for publication, its author has to ‘underwrite’ or cover all the costs of the publication (editorial, design, production) of a print run of a £1,000 copies. The cost of this starts at around £4,500 but varies according to the length, complexity, design issues etc. RedDoor aims for writers to go into profit with a year of publication, and once the first 1,000 copies have sold through RedDoor, any subsequent print runs are paid for by the company and the author will be paid royalties.
