Inner Vision Press FAQ.

What Are Title Set Up Fees?
The fee for setting up your title and publishing your book depends on a number of factors: primarily the book size in terms of number of pages, whether you want your book in paperback or hardback or both, and how much work is required to bring your manuscript up to a 'print-ready' standard suitable for publication. Formatting your manuscript, minor grammar correction and spell checking are included in the title set up. Editorial work is in addition to the title set up fee and negotiable depending on how much work is required. Generally speaking, Inner Vision Press does not edit an authors work as I prefer the book to sound more or less exactly as the author intended it to sound, in their own voice and not heavily diluted by extensive editing.

How Much Will It Cost?
The title set up fee can be anything starting from £150.00 ($250.00) depending on the level of work required. There are also additional factors to consider, for example if you would like copies sent to you upon completion of publication, and if you would like your title included in the Ingram Advance catalogue, a one-time marketing opportunity.

Are there Any Additional Fees?
No. When we agree on the set-up and publication fee there will be no other fees to pay, unless you decide to initiate additional marketing for your title independently.

How Soon Will My Book Be Published?
This depends on my current workload and the size and amount of work required to bring your manuscript up to a print-ready standard. If you have a near print-ready manuscript this reduces the time to publication considerably. Obviously if I have to manually scan every page of your book and recognise the text using OCR it is going to take a bit longer! You can realistically expect to see your book on the shelves within three to five months of acceptance of your manuscript, although it could be a lot sooner.

Can You Provide Marketing For My Book?
At this time Inner Vision Press only provides limited marketing as mentioned above. Our main aim is to publish your book in a timely manner and give it the widest distribution possible at launch. The author is responsible for their own marketing stratedgy for example, organising book signings, radio/television/press interviews, advertising in newspapers/magazines, book reviews, distribution of flyers and leaflets, business cards, etc. although Inner Vision Press will support you and consult with you in this regard.

Where Will My Book Be Sold?
Upon publication your book will be listed on major retailers web sites like,, Kindle, Barnes and Noble, Waterstones, WHSmith, Blackwells, The Book Depository, Google Books and literally hundreds of independent book retailers online.  Your book may also be ordered and stocked by bricks-and-mortar high street and independent retailers as well as schools, colleges, universities and libraries worldwide.  Your book will also be convertd into ebook formats and available to download for e-readers like Kindle, Adobe, Nook, Sony, as well as iPad, iPod, and iPhone through the iTunes store.

What happens When I Sell A Copy Of My Book?
It pays me to pay you! The more books we sell the better it is for both author and publisher, and hopefully the whole world gets to benefit. When someone purchases a copy of your book, the order is sent through the distribution channels and the book is printed 'on-demand'. This means any number of your books can be printed and distributed at very short notice. The printed book is then sent directly to the customer/retailer and the sale is recorded.

Will My Title Ever Go 'Out-of-Print' ?
No. Your title is 'print-on-demand' which means it will never go 'out-of-stock' and will never go 'out-of-print', unless you decide to unpublish your book for some reason.

How Many Copies Of My Book Can I expect To Sell?
This depends largely on you. If you are a first time author it is not reasonable to expect to sell a million copies of your book in the first year, although this is possible, it is unlikely! Inner Vision Press makes no guarentees as to the number of book sales the author makes. Having said that, if we decide to go ahead and publish your book it is because I strongly believe the author has something of value to offer to the world, and the author having made an investment in the publishing process feels the same way too. I would therefore realistically hope our venture would be a mutually rewarding one.

What are the Royalty/Commission Terms?
Inner Vision Press pays the author exactly 20% of the retail price of all copies of their book sold through all retail outlets and distribution channels.

How Often Will I Be Paid Commision?
You will be paid either monthly or quarterly depending on the number of sales of your book. Sales are paid 90 days in arrears from the date your sales commision reaches $25.00 or greater. I will provide full sales reports and commision statements to that affect.

How Will I Be Paid?
If you live in the United Kingdom you can choose to be paid by physical cheque, by Paypal or directly to your designated bank account. If you live outside the UK you can choose to be paid by Paypal only.

Will I Be Under Contract And Who Will Own The Copyrights To My Book?
You will not be under contract to Inner Vision. When Inner Vision Press agrees to publish your book I will send you a 'Publishing Proposal' which will be an informal agreement which will reflect commitment to the level of service I am willing to give you. If you accept this and Inner Vision agrees that your title is suitable for my list, we can then go ahead and publish your book. You will be the copyright holder of your work and you are free to publish your work elsewhere at any time.

What Is The Next Step?
If you have written a book or are near completion and would like Inner Vision Press to consider your title for publication please contact me to discuss your requirements. You may contact me by email or you can use the 'Contact Form' on this website. Alternatively you may send the complete manuscript or a few sample chapters along with a short appraisal of your book, to the above address. Please include details of any marketing/promotional opportunities you can provide and a stamped, addressed envolope if you would like your manuscript returned to you.

Can I see Any Previous Titles Published By Inner Vision Press?
You sure can! Both my own book "Enlightenment for Beginners" and "Ultimate Power: The Universal Science of Love by Linda West" are published by Inner Vision Press. Feel free to check them out on Amazon :)

What Inner Vision Press Will Not Publish!
Porn, fantasy, horror, drugs or violence of any kind, war stories (real or not),
anything that promotes hatred, religious or cultural differences, the occult or black magic.

Quick Guide to Self-Publishing.

Quick Guide to Self Publishing by Matt Blythe

It has been said that every person has at least one
book to write about his or her life experience.

How many pages is your book? And do you intend to
publish it into a printed book, which I advise you to, since
most self-publishers give you the option to make it available
as an ebook anyway.

With mine, I prepared the manuscript as a word .doc
then I can adjust the page size and edit the text whenever I
need to. You can then upload your file to a web site like, or
Amazon also have a digital text platform where you can self
publish ebooks as a Kindle download, which is becoming
popular, .

I recommend to start with. They have a
simple wizard, which leads you through the publishing
process step by step, makes all the necessary file conversions
for you and has a really cool cover design program. Best thing
about lulu is it is all free of charge to set your title up, assign
an ISBN number, and list it on the website and on . You get your own customisable store and
you can distribute your title for a small fee if you want worldwide
distribution.If you choose distribution your title also gets listed in
online stores and is also available to order wholesale and over the
counter at local bookstores. Lulu also registers your book with
Google Books, which has a search inside preview that is kind
of neat.

If you want marketing and the backing of a publisher,
you can always self-publish or tout for a mainstream
publishing deal later since you retain the rights to your own
work. Self-publishing packages really depend on your budget
because their printed products are generally better quality
than some of the online publishers. Plus they have marketing
add-ons you can “add-on” later, budget permitting, and you
can still list your titles with online publishers anyway.
Lulu has a pretty cool help and discussion forum, which I have
found useful sometimes. You can also buy your own book at
cost, which some publishers do not offer.

Let me know when get published I would love to read
your book. Book swaps are a great way to mutually market
your book with other authors and compare notes. You can
agree to write each other a brief review and post it to your
web site, blogg or social network.

Best of luck with setting up and making sales. It can be
a long process but a rewarding one, so if you think your title
is worth reading stick with it. The setting up and editing is
the hardest part, after that it is just marketing, promotion and
looking forward to the next sales report.

"I’m really going to need help with this...
Sales reports? Marketing? Promotion? Those
terms are completely foreign to me and

You learn these DETAILS as you go along. A good
book promotes itself when you set it up affectively.
I strongly recommend that before you do anything
else, SAVE A COPY of your book file to CD or floppy disc,
then PRINT OFF a copy of the manuscript. That way, if all
else fails digitally, you can still scan and OCR (optically
recognise) your text. Also, when you are famous your
manuscripts will be worth a fortune and you can auction
them on eBay for charity.

When I first printed my manuscript, it was only 78 pages.
After formatting, editing, text resizing and page layout,
it comes to 148 pages, so I wouldn’t worry about the size too
much. The way the mind works is you would have the
essential information down already. But if there is more you
feel you want to add during editing, go for it. Writing is form
of self-expression and a great way to use our time

And I will want a signed copy of course!

One other thing I want to mention about self publishing; most
publishers prefer new titles that are not self published in advance.
This isn't a general rule, but some people self-publish all their titles
and still do not do well, and then they cannot get a publisher or an
 agent and they have nothign left to go on. Other publishers will notice
 if you are selling LOTS of copies of your book and want to know
about it...  so it is a swing and a roundabout you have to way up.

If you would rather have a publisher consider publishing your
manuscript for you, and saving you the time and the hassle, the
Inner Vision Press publishing imprint is now live and actively
seeking submissions.

Inner Vision Press has worldwide distribution through
the Ingram Channel and their partners Bertrams, Gardeners
and also has accounts with Nielsons and Bowkerlink
distribution databases. My books are seen by a lot of
potential customers including retailers like Amazon, Barnes
and Noble, WHSmith, and Waterstones, as well as libraries,
colleges and universities and bricks-and-mortar retail outlets.
The Inner Vision Press “print-on-demand” model uses
paper sourced from wholly sustainable managed forests.
Because my books are print-on-demand they never go out of
print and are always available for short runs from one book to
any number.

I supply ISBN’s for both printed and digital books, set
the title up, design the cover, set the retail price and
distribute worldwide. This includes press releases, social
networking and submission to all the major search engines.

Inner Vision Press aims to be a bridge between
mainstream publishing and self-publishing for authors in the
field of Personal and Spiritual Development, with a wide
scale exposure in the book market.

If you have written a book in the genres of Personal
and Spiritual Development, Enlightenment, Relationships,
Self Help, Transformational Psychology, Non-Fiction or
absolutely anything with an Inspirational Message from a
healing perspective, Inner Vision Press would like to hear
from you!

Review: Enlightenment for Beginners


Lucky Spirit
This review is from: Enlightenment for Beginners (Paperback)

A "must read" book with advice for "Beginners"and all those who need a feedback on their path back to the "spiritual roots"!!!
I have been very pleased to read this uplifting informative book with pleasure and in ease. I appreciate the humorous pen and fluent style very much because English is not my native tongue.
The used language in this awesome guide for personal development and spiritual growth flows out of the heart and needs no academic words to explain any "secret".
It is a written authentic testimony and precious gift with shared living knowledge and experienced wisdom ...messages from heart to heart and soul to soul ... to me.

This is Awesome Lucky Spirit. So glad it touched you, thank you.

ISBN-10: 095688332X
ISBN-13: 978-0956883322
Dimensions: 20.3 x 12.7 x 0.7 cm

Product Description
Freedom lover, nature fan, mother and friend of the Earth, Linda West connected a code while studying the Mayan calendar which won her a scholarship to spend time with Terence McKenna in the rainforest of the Mayan ruins in Mexico. While conducting research on the Mayans, the calendar, and the science of frequencies, Linda began receiving messages from the Great Spirit of "White Eagle". Linda says she was asked to write down her breakthroughs and experiences and make them into a book for all mankind to share as we approach the end of the Mayan calendar and take the first steps towards a new more loving era in Earth's history.

From The Author
"It was foretold that at this time we would be receiving gifts to aid in the coming evolution of our world. One of these gifts is the remembrance of the Universal Science of Love, also known as Frequency Attunement. Frequency Attunement is a universal integrated spirit/science, which acts as one of the foundations of creation. It is what we call intuition, or our sixth sense. Frequencies are the subtle unseen vibrations which make up all of creation. They are what compose matter, thought, and energy. They are a measurement of the God-force. This book is meant to simplify the use of frequencies so that you can use this knowledge in your everyday life. You will discover how you can wield the Ultimate Power, and manifest your own personal miracles... This book will transform your life !" Linda West.

From The Publisher
Clearly written with deep insight, Linda West's book Ultimate Power:The Universal Science of Love is a must read for anyone looking for guidance, healing, inspiration and enlightenment through the use of frequency attunement. Welcome to the world of Frequencies!

Enlightenment for Beginners by Matt Blythe


Twenty years ago a series of life changing events led Matt to write "Enlightenment for Beginners" which became the basis for forming his own company Inner Vision and were the beginnings of his enlightenment. At the age of 21, as a way of trying to heal his own trauma and psychology, Matt began taking notes which would later be typed up into the manuscript and published into the book you are reading today.

Purchase Your Copy here

Inside Enlightenment for Beginners, the author guides us gently and clearly through learning to cope with our feelings, mind, body and spirit, attracting a love partner, forgiveness, the psychology of personal repair, meditation, the law of psychosomatics, the seven chakras, aura, your pseudo soul or ego, the feminine principle, goal setting, finding your purpose, principles for decision making and living your purpose wholeheartedly, plus many more chapters for those serious about their own personal development and spiritual growth.

Complete with informative and simple diagrams, exercises and quite a lot of humour, Enlightenment for Beginners is the essential handbook for anyone from those wanting to improve the quality of their life, to those embarking on their own personal enlightenment.

Cover Art
The cover art is a collaboration between Matt, Laura (the photographer), her three daughters and friend Noor, and Noor's friend's dog "Sandy" all of whom are pictured in silhouette! In some sense this is a family portrait, as Matt says this picture depicts his mother figuratively standing on the shores of the mainland UK with her dog Todd whilst looking over to the Island where Matt lives. Apart from the cover and some minor editing this version is identical to the 1st Edition, both of which are dedicated to his mother.

From the Author
"The aim of this book is largely reparative. I wrote it myself during testing times both emotionally and financially. The principles and aphorisms contained herein became a staff for me at the time and many of these formed the basis of the belief system that supports my psychology. They transformed the most chronic of problems easily and became the cornerstones and building blocks for a brighter, more positive future. Enlightenment for Beginners aims to educate and enlighten you, increase your awareness and give you an expanded view of what we call life. I hope to share this knowledge with you it comes from the depths of my awareness. With understanding and a solid foundation every problem we encounter becomes a way of extending ourselves and transforms into a gift.

After taking "The Road to Recovery" and a short journey within, we can safely and confidently return to the mainstream of life with renewed interest and energy. Seeing where we are now, and how far we have come, allows us to settle into life knowing we are guided, gifted, supported and rewarded, throughout this intrinsic tapestry of life. I hope you have at least as much fun reading Enlightenment for Beginners as I did writing it. If I can help one person walk into the future with an open mind and a grateful heart then it would all have been worthwhile." Matt Blythe

About the Author
Having had formal training in electronics and after fourteen years as a relationship coach, workshop facilitator and student/teacher of A Course in Miracles, Matt feels now is a good time to share his Wisdom with the world.

Matt Blythe takes the reader on a journey of self-discovery towards an elightened state of mind which increases self-worth, confidence and purpose. -Paul Armfield - Manager "Waterstones" Isle of wight

I wish anyone who was feeling in need of a spiritual pick-me-up could read and enjoy this book, it's fabulous! -Cynthia Sue Larson - Author of "Aura Advantage" and Top 500 Reviewer

Just finished your book "Enlightenment For Beginners" I enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and inspiration. -Christina Joy - Ordained Interfaith Minister
