Jabez Holdings is the financial and integrity treasurer of the City of Jabez and works to protect the imagination and intellectual concepts of authors, publishers and business owners. This department provides securities and exchanges that prevent marketplace incidentals, intellectual property and identity theft, and administer financial returns on investments.
The Author Protection Plan (APP) relieves the financial burden of unexpected incidentals that arise during and after the book and design production, resulting in changes in request fees. The APP can be purchased in advance of services provided and includes a small deductible when activated. Once secured, the APP is active for up to 90 days after the book and/or design is completed.
Author Royalties are generated each time a book is sold in the marketplace. Point-of-sale reports are generated quarterly and the Author is paid the following quarter. The first Author Royalty payment usually comes within the first six months of the book’s release date and continues every three months for the life of the book.
Author Financing is a credit extended to the author using the author’s original book as collateral. Once the author publishes the initial book, the book is held in reserves as security for the forthcoming book. The author makes small monthly payments on the book production until the balance is paid in full.
Author Line of Credit is extended to authors whose accounts are in good standing and have sold at least 500 books in the marketplace and/or purchased at least 500 direct-order books over the life of book production. The book(s) are secured as collateral for the loan, which can be used by the author to purchase products and service relating to the book or future book publishing services.
Intellectual property protects the idea, concept, and registration or literary work. All publications must be registered with the U.S. Library of Congress and meet all Federal guidelines for book publishing and reproduction. Proof of Title is published in every book and website by either the author or the publisher.
