FAQ
  1. Patreon is for artists but you are creating nothing? The creative source of a Rounded Globe book is the author. We edit an author's work and publishing it in electronic format under a creative commons license.
  2. Surely editing and coding are arts. We do not request Patreon donations for the artistic side of our work, only the drudge work and the expenses.
  3. What is Rounded Globe editorial policy? A contribution must be over 10,000 words, face reality honesty, use clear prose and, ideally, eschew disciplinary blinkers.
  4. So creating is art but making is business? You might say that. Our position presupposes the distinction between creating and making found in the first verses of the Bible and a further idea of authorship as a human action in the image of a Maker. 
  5. So the Rounded Globe manifesto rests on a belief in the God of Genesis? No. It rests on the story found in the Book of Genesis.
  6. Huh? The real point is that we place art beyond the economic realm but not the production of an ebook, and we request financial aid in the latter.
  7. What do you owe your authors? (a) Before agreement to proceed: a good initial understanding of the idea of publishing their work as an ebook under a creative commons licence; (b) During the production process: careful editing and a seamless transformation of an ebook; (c) After publication: nothing.
  8. In your experience, what do authors not understand about publishing with Rounded Globe? That we are a production unit and are not concerned with distribution.
  9. Will you take down a book from our web site if an author requests? Of course (but if the author sends us extraordinary emails that deny the value of the many hours of our work we will take a very long time in doing so).
  10. Can you withdraw an ebook from circulation once it has been published? This we cannot do.
  11. Why do you count the pennies when it comes to this page but refuse to discuss download numbers with authors? Because our economic conversation ends when we step from our work to the creative work of these authors that our work makes available to many for free.
  12. Who holds the copyright of the ebooks you make? Their authors.
