A Summary of Innovo's Traditional-Publishing Path and how it works

Innovo acquires book, music, screenplay, or film rights, and pays the author/artist/agent an advance and royalties. Innovo funds all costs to publish the Title. Author/Artist/Agent makes no financial commitments.

  • Author/Artist/Agent submits Christian title (manuscript, music, screenplay, film) using Innovo's upload tool or as agreed beforehand.
  • Agent submissions are encouraged and welcome for traditional publishing consideration, although direct Author/Artist submissions are also accepted.
  • Innovo reviews submissions for quality, style, and market match.
  • If selected, Innovo offers a contract and acquires all title rights.
  • Innovo pays an advance to author/artist and pays royalties on each copy sold.
  • Innovo prepares, publishes, and markets title.
  • Innovo assumes the financial risk for projects and funds the entire publishing effort.
