At Editorial Perdido, we believe that the best children's books are entertaining, colourful, informative and funny. We believe that adults want information and entertainment. We’re not interested in examples of the Seven Deadly Sins (Greed, Gluttony, Lust, Pride, Wrath, Sloth and Envy), but we rather prefer to read about solutions to the problems they cause.
Do you write to be fed, or do you write to be read?
The statistics indicate that only 2% of all completed manuscripts are published, and only 2% of all published books earn the writer an hourly wage higher than the minimum wage of a 17-year-old stocker. Thanks to the Copyright Act, 2,499 of the 2,500 writers receive only unreasonably low compensation or no fee at all for their creativity. This kind of exploitation is illegal in every other industry. All non-creatives in the book industry are of course paid at least the minimum wage for every hour worked. The richest man in the world is so rich because per book sold he earns more than the author of that book, who had to do all the work and invest in advertising and quality himself. Do you still think the Copyright Law is good for artists? We think Shareware books are a better solution.
Are you a writer whose work has been rejected by the commercial censorship of other publishers? Editorial Perdido is here to help. We provide advice, workshops and courses. We can even edit or translate your work for a fee or for a consideration.
