Trius Publishing is a d.b.a. of LearnToSwimProgram.com LLC.
We publish private works of Dr. Pete Andersen, noted expert in swimming instruction and behaviorism. We also publish non-fiction work of vetted authors who provide their own editors and take personal liability insurance in errors and omissions and own their content. In other words have not borrowed from open source or other authored work.
We provide the ISBN and people to create the book cover and interior graphics for a small fee much smaller than larger publishing houses.
Our mission is to support good authors of good content to help more people. Most self-published authors are unaware that large publishing houses charge great sums to take your work, edit, cover design, and publish. The typical contract calls for the author to perhaps get a pre-publish commission check as an advance, but they don’t tell you you don’t get another commission check until your book has earned that commission to pay it back.
Then comes the big surprise. Authors are happy to have a contract thinking they will continue to market your book to increase sales. Nope! After the first month they have other authored books in the hopper. Their marketing team will focus on only them in the next month. So, after the first month you must do 100% of the marketing. This is why they insist you have a platform and a large email list to market your book for their benefit.
