Simon & Schuster Creates Self-Publishing Unit, Archway Publishing
Nov 27, 2012
Simon & Schuster is getting in the self-publishing business. Through a partnership with Author Solutions Inc., S&S has formed Archway Publishing, a unit that will offer self-publishing services in fiction, nonfiction, business and children’s categories with the backend powered by ASI, the self-publishing provider acquired by Pearson/Penguin earlier this year.
“Self-publishing has become a viable and popular route to publication for many authors, and increasingly a source of content for traditional publishers, including Simon & Schuster,” said S&S CEO Carolyn Reidy. “We’re excited that we’ll be able to help more authors find their own path to publication and at the same time create a more direct connection to those self-published authors ready to make the leap to traditional publishing.” S&S will refer authors who submit unsolicited manuscripts to the Archway program and will monitor the success of Archway titles.

S&S hopes to differentiate Archway from other self-publishing programs by offering some exclusive options that include a “concierge service” in which authors will have the chance to work with a dedicated publishing guide who will coordinate each step of the book production process. Working with Speakerfile, S&S has also created the Archway Speakers Bureau to help authors line up speaking engagements. S&S will include Archway (whose name was adapted from a defunct S&S children’s paperback imprint) titles in Edelweiss and also offer authors the ability to create videos and book trailers.
Devu Gandhi of S&S Digital is managing the Archway-ASI relationship for S&S. Fees to participate in Archway vary according to different packages, but in general have the following ranges: Fiction: $1,999 - $14,999; Nonfiction: $1,999 - $14,999; Business: $2,199 - $24,999; and Children’s: $1,599 - $8,499.

The What is Success show hosts will be discussing the crushing rejection letter and what writers need to understand about traditional publishers.
The hosts will be joined by author Otis Rich, who has traveled over half the United States and has made a lifetime study of people, trying to learn what motivates them as they live out the drama of life. One thing to keep in mind as you read his stories is some of the things Otis Rich writes about may seem to be so fantastic it must be pure fantasy -- yet sometimes the truth is more fantastic than fiction.

After growing up with four sisters in Illinois, then raising two daughters, Shirley Kufeldt and her husband left Illinois and her daughters to retire to Northern Wisconsin in 2007. Having participated in Bible studies for over 30 years and hearing of the efforts of so many others over the years to document their personal walk of faith, she developed the Bible Bites series. Mrs. Kufeldt participates in Tea Party activities as time allows and cares for her one grandchild (when asked) with joy.
WHY BIBLE BITES?
For too many people, reading the Bible, God’s Word, is too much of a challenge so they neglect picking up a Bible and do not learn what God has to say about any number of topics. Too many people only know God as judge who only punishes sinners, but have a misguided conception of His love, grace and compassion. And they blame God for the sins others commit against them. So they live their lives based on misconceptions about God, and a secular lifestyle is the result.
The idea for BIBLE BITES was formulated while reading Robert Tilton’s book, Charting Your Course, By God’s Dream in Your Heart.
It is easy to enjoy BIBLE BITES because it is an extremely simple, timely and effective way for anyone to actually spend time with God’s Word and journal on a very regular basis. Shirley Kufeldt has been journaling since 2010 and found it easy to respond and react to God’s Word with this system.
BIBLE BITES booklets are small pocket-sized monthly journals that include current prayer requests and focused daily Scripture for journaling and reflection. This is a simple solution to a situation many would like to resolve. Through BIBLE BITES readers can easily learn, memorize or meditate on Scripture as they journal regularly with direction and purpose.
Shirley Kufeldt has compiled Bible verses in simple monthly booklets to make it easy for readers to:
1. Learn, memorize and meditate on Bible verses
2. List current prayer requests
3. Respond / React to God’s Word “where they are each day”
4. Quickly Journal each day in a small topical booklet with a daily Scripture verse
5. Introduce Seekers to God, in a non-threatening manner, as the One who loves them unconditionally
6. Use BIBLE BITES as an easy gift idea in place of a greeting card
7. Carry BIBLE BITES in pocket, purse, briefcase, and backpack.
8. BIBLE BITES is inexpensive, sold over the internet, retail sales, wide distribution, low cost items, similar to Our Daily Bread.
9. Because it takes 21 days to develop a habit. Bible Bites firmly establishes the habit of spending time with God’s Word.
10. New Living Translation—I have paid for and received permission from Tyndale House to use the New Living Translation up to 400 verses a year.
11. New topics can be introduced on a regular basis because of the wide variety of topics that the Bible addresses and the wide variety of the human population,
We each look differently at Scripture and respond to and reflect on God’s Word based on “where we are today.” In a non-threatening manner, Seekers are introduced to God as the One who loves them unconditionally and pursues them by answering prayer His Way:
Definitely, Denied, Delayed, Differently, Distributed a bit at a time.
We each look differently at Scripture as we:
Respond, Reflect, Renew, Repent or Rejoice, based on “where we are today.”
Shirley Kufeldt has three quotes from Albert Einstein:
- Everything should be as simple as possible, but not simpler.
- God always takes the simplest way.
- When the solution is simple, God is answering.
Daily we can each ask God “What’s next?” knowing that His answer is best for our lives, while bringing glory to Him.
