NEED SUPPORT? the location to go to is here.

No support will be offered via email, by PM or this thread -- you must submit a ticket at the Help Desk above if you need help. This is my one, centralised support location - emails are easily lost and I don't monitor this thread or my
PM box for support questions.

We are super-fast at responding to all support questions, but we are also only human - we are on Australian 'Eastern Daylight Time' so if you submit a ticket whilst we are asleep you may have to wait a few hours for a response.

FAQ:

Q: What Sort Of Training Is This?
A: This a PDF manual (60+pages) plus some additonal bonuses
delivered in *.doc format.

Q: Are there any upsells?
A:Yes, there is an upsell. Out of Print Goldmine is a standalone product, but the upsell/sidesell training product is completely complimentary and will help you build your publishing empire faster than you ever thought possible.

Q: Whats this all about?
A: This teaches you How to find out of print books, and then locate the current copyright holder. Once you have established who owns the rights, you then either: a) negotiate to buy the rights to the book for republishing OR b) purchase the book outright from the current copyright holder (my preference - less ongoing maintenance, more control)

Once you have acquired the rights to the Out of Print Book, you can use publishing platforms such as Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (for eBooks) and Createspace (for physical books) to sell those books, instantly reaching a huge market of book buyers.

Q: I am afraid of a little hard work.
A: Firstly, that isnt a question. Secondly, if you are looking for 'push button' then this isn't for you, sorry.

In the spirit of full transparency, this was a review copy, although let me say up front, that doesn't affect my review in any way.

First, let me address the presentation of the material. I prefer this PDF format over videos because it provides the information in a concise easy to read form. I don't buy videos anymore because they are too time consuming when extracting the information from them, requiring the taking of notes, numerous rewinds and if you have to return at a later date for clarification, it is a pain to try and find the spot you need. This 53 page PDF has a clickable table of contents, allowing you to find any information easily.

The information is everything you need to acquire the rights to out of print books so that you can publish them on Kindle. Whether you are not good at writing books yourself or whether you just want to add to the number of books you have in your Kindle stable, this is the only source you will need.

You will learn how to find the out of print books, how to locate the copyright owner and how to acquire the rights so you can publish and profit from the book. The author leaves no stone uncovered. This eliminates the need for out sourcing your book writing and all the dangers that come with that.

I give this a rating of 5 stars out of 5 stars because it covers everything you need to know in regard to the subject matter, written in easy to understand language, with all the resources you need to acquire the rights to the books.

I received a review copy of 'Out of Print Goldmine' from Philip John

It is a 53 page PDF file which is clearly structured and easy to read.

The book explains what an out-of-print book is and what is important about copyright. It states the many advantages of re-publishing out-of-print books and why you won't have any competition.

Philip explains how to find out-of-print books, and most importantly how to find the rightsholder, as well as how to prepare for obtaining permissions. He gives a clear strategy about how to negotiate with the rightsholder.

The last part contains step by step instructions for the actual process of preparing the book for kindle and publish it.

While I said the book is easy to read and understand it is not to be read once and then forget. The whole process of getting out-of-print books in Kindle consists of many steps and takes time, and Philip says so. For all the steps he provides detailed instructions and all necessary links. Those who like to work according to clear and detailed instructions will like the way he guides you through all the steps.

And I think it is certainly worth to follow his method because once a book has been published on Kindle it will deliver a passive income for a long time.

While I was interested in Kindle before after reading this WSO it is much clearer for me now which way to go. I don't like writing too much, and using already written material sounds perfect to me.

Thanks very much, Philip, for making me aware of this method

I received a review copy of Out of Print Goldmine. Philip has written a very neatly formatted, professional 53 page report in pdf. He details the complete process from how to source and obtain out of print books through republishing them on Kindle or in a physical format. He has included pictures, a sample contract, and links to many resources. There are apparently many out of print books to choose from.
This is a very comprehensive, business in a box report with guidelines for setting up a publishing business. The process is more involved than many WSO's on the Warrior Forum, but even warriors not interested in finding and publishing out of print books will learn a lot about getting any book published on Kindle. Philip goes through a step by step description of How to Publish on Kindle, naming some very good resources for outsourcing or doing it yourself.
While I will probably not personally pursue publishing out of print books, the value of this report for me was learning about some of the resources Philip shared that will make publishing material on Kindle much easier.
Thanks!

Phil was generous enough to offer me a review copy of Out Of Print Goldmine. I have been publishing ghost written short stories on Kindle for over a year now and I know full well the profit potential that Kindle offers. Amazon just reported that ebook sales are up 70% from last year! The biggest problem that most would be Kindle folks have is how to get quality content to publish. Well, Out of Print Goldmine is the perfect answer for instant content as it teaches you how to acquire the rights to out of print books. It’s a great idea!

This WSO leaves nothing out. It is very well researched and Phil presents all of the detailed info necessary for me to obtain publishing rights and put up an out of print book on Kindle.

I highly recommend this for the beginner or experienced Kindle publisher looking to expand their offerings. I am definitely going to do it myself.

I received a review copy of Philip's WSO.

As reported above, it is a well written, thorough account of how to not only make some money by finding out of print books to resuscitate on Kindle - its a well laid out plan to actually building a real publishing business using these materials.

Honestly, I haven't done this, so I cannot honestly speak to the completeness of the blueprint - but from the outside looking in, in seems complete - and is certainly an excellent start in that direction, given the negligible investment.

Best,

Bill

I have received a review copy of Out of Print Goldmine (thank you!).

Let me say immediately that this is not some tardy get rich quick scheme that is the stuff of most WSO offerings. It does not exploit some loophole or other that will last 5 minutes and will shortly be plugged by some website or other.

This is a well written roadmap to build a sustainable digital publishing business on Kindle. All the bases are covered and there are some very useful resources for identifying out of print books and approaching the current rights holders. There is even a draft contract to provide a starting point.

I will definitely be adding this approach to my armoury and have identified several series of books already.

'Goldmine' is the right word for this.

Full disclosure - I received a review copy from Philip, and I'm greatful. This is a very well laid out pdf that covers finding and acquiring out of print books.

I am a published author and a publisher and Philip provides actionable information to help you expand your publishing business. Cant write? no problem - there are tens of thousands of books out there that have gone out of print - and with the information Philip provides you can track these books down, do proper marketing analysis, and then acquire the rights to the book.

He goes over how to find these books, what rights you should try and purchase and even provides example contracts to use when acquiring books. With all the rehashed material on Kindle here in the WSO forum its a welcome sight to find such a product as Out of Print Goldmine.

Highly recommended.
best,
--Jack

Perhaps many works are out of print for a good reason: nobody wants to buy them?

I am a published author and know that most major publishing houses if they can't sell 1000 books a month or 1000/year from their mid and back lists, then they don't see an ROI.

If they've sold out their print run and demand didn't meet their expectations then they will not reorder another print run - and the book goes out of print. Doesn't mean there's no market - just means the market is not big enough to interest them anymore.

Also one man's garbage can be another man's treasure. Just because company A can not market a book doesn't mean company B can not. Doesnt mean they can either, but that's what makes it fun.

Good luck,
--Jack

Spot-On, Jack.

When publishers acquire the rights to a book, they create a print run of a fixed number of copies. When these books are no longer selling at a rate fast enough to pay for their inventory costs, the book is said to be Out Of Print.

What this means is, the publisher is unable justify the risk of printing a new run of XX,XXX books -- but it doesn't mean that nobody is interested in these books (far from it) -- more often than not, it just means that their ability to market these books is limited.

The advantage we have in locating these Out Of Print books and publishing them in a digital medium is that there are no inventory costs... and being marketers we can leverage our knowledge of the internet and Amazon's eco-system to generate traffic and sales in ways that the old-school publishers could not even dream of.

This is a 'loophole' that is wide open to anyone and everyone, if they decide to act on it.

This does sounds interesting, but I have one question before I jump to this WSO...

How big your budget should be for purchasing either type of rights for this type of books?

Since you have experience with that, I think that would be worth sharing because some people won't be able to jump on it due to low or zero budget....

This is really an excellent an comprehensive guide on the subject and definitely worth the money. However, having a small publishing business myself, I know that getting the rights to an out of print work and publishing it can take a fair amount of work, but it will surely be worth your while if you get the right title(s). This guide tells you exactly how to go about it and makes sure that there is no more steep learning curve.

I got a review copy of this - though to be honest, that's only because when I saw the email from Phil to his list I read it straight away and practically begged for more information. I was very impressed with his last WSO about getting reviews - in fact it is my review "bible".
This WSO is one of those ones where you read it and think 'Oh crap, I wish everyone else out there didn't get to know about this and left the field open for me'. But, as is pointed out there is LOTs of room for everyone in this endeavour. Plus, sad to say - many people will read this but won't take action, which is unfortunate, because I can see great potential in this for anyone who is willing to put the time and effort in. It needn't cost anything much at all if you are willing to pay with time and effort.

If you want a glimpse at the potential of this knowledge here, take a look at an excerpt of the last email I sent to give my gratitude for the review copy:

"I was about to throw out old books that I have been hawking around for 30 years (!) when you sent me the review copy - I sit now beside a small pile of what seem to be out of print books with the publishers details.. One book that I checked out was "Below Stairs" (I have VERY varied reading interests) which someone else beat me to republishing only just in December. Take a look at the Amazon listing for it and you might realise how gutted I am for not knowing about this earlier! "

If that doesn't show you the business potential for this, then you should look for a day job! :-)

I *knew* this question would come up, and it's a hard question to answer because there is no set price that any particular book is worth. This means that you will essentially end up paying as little or as much you can negotiate.

I do cover this in more detail inside the training manual, but in principle there are two ways to approach this... you could a) acquire the outright ownership for a lump sum or b) acquire the publishing rights for royalties on copies sold (which removes much of your up front costs)

The later is always a very viable option if you are bootstrapping and to be honest many publishers and authors are reluctant to sell their rights in exchange for a lump sum fee because the publishing world has long been in a royalty frame of mind.

However, if you are the only one making an offer (and the only person likely to do so) then obviously whatever sum you are offering is going to be better than what they are receiving right now, right?

Also, does the current rights holder have an emotional attachment to the book? Perhaps the author has long since passed and the current rights holders are happy to sell because they have no emotional investment in the book.

I will also say this; if you arrange to acquire the rights to a book outright, it is very possible that you could make your initial investment back in as little as a month -everything after that being gravy... but you have to be confident in you acquisition... and your ability to market it.

Thanks a lot for your review, and you are right - this is not 'push button' But, if you are prepared to dig in any get a little dirty the opportunity is endless... not to mention a heck-of-a-lot-of-fun!

Hey Dave! I just checked that book out on Amazon.. it's selling very well indeed . But don't despair, there are literally millions of books out there waiting to be (re)discovered.

Can you give an average amount that you have spent on the rights to acquire out of print books? Our we talking $100's, $1000's...a frame of reference would be helpful so we have an idea of what kind of investment we can expect if we want to pursue this. Do you cover how much you should expect to offer the current rights owner if you want to pursue the royalty option?

Also, how many authors/publishers do you have to approach on average before you find one that will sell you their rights or even take royalties? Why would authors not just put their books on Amazon etc themselves and keep 100% of the profits?

There've been a stream of Kindle related WSOs recently, all at the $17 price point. Unfortunately not all of them have been quality products, and I suspect I'm not the only one who is now wary.

You might consider offering later at a different price if this WSO doesn't meet your expectations.

As someone who has reviewed this product (and an affiliate) I just want to say this is a great product and is well-worth the price point, and would still be fairly priced at a higher price point.

Man, this is a solid course!

I haven't even finished it yet, but it seems to cover absolutely everything. I told my kindle rockstars about it. I think they'll really enjoy it!

@affenspincher, I agree. There have been a LOT of kindle WSOs recently.

It's actually kinda crazy. I was talking to a few of my fellow kindle friends about it and we were all laughing. Must be that time of year! As far as pricing goes, there's no rule as to what a WSO should be priced at, but for $17, this one is a steal, and I can almost guarantee Philip will sell it at a higher price off the forum. There has only been 1 kindle WSO recently that I've gone through that I personally thought was priced a little too high, but the info was still solid.

A few years ago, there was a LOT of very questionable kindle content being pushed, but here recently, I've been impressed.

I highly suggest you check Phil's newest baby out. It's pretty sweet

Anything that Phil puts together is pure gold! Out of Print Goldmine is no exception. Yes, I received a review copy, but that doesn't change the fact that he clearly put a ton of time into this product and speaks from experience. This is not some hastily slapped together Kindle product, this is a viable business model that anyone can follow because Phil goes into such extraordinary detail. Out of Print Goldmine is worth way more than the pittance he is asking for. Do yourself a favor and stop chasing your tail. Get a copy today.

I've seen people complain about price in other WSO's and it always puzzle's me...

If you get more value than 17 dollars, the it's worth more than 17 bucks, right?

I mean, if the product helps you earn even 100 bucks, doesn't that mean the information you purchased is worth well more than 17 bucks?

There are three ways you can judge price:

- Real value (as in the cost to produce and transmit)
- Perceived Value (The value you think you'll get before purchase)
- Use value (Return On Investment)

The real value of this WSO and others is somewhere around the 1/10 of 1 cent - the cost of storing and transmitting bits of data are around that. From then, it's the cost to produce, which in this case was zero because Phil made it himself.

As far as perceived value and ROI/use value goes, this forum has a HUGE problem understanding that "lots of stuff" (ie, 5 pdf's, 10 videos, checklists, etc.) doesn't equal value.

If a single, 20 page or 30 page or 50 page PDF can relate to me a concept and I understand it and able to implement it, AND it makes me hundreds of dollars, then that means my ROI is well worth more than the 17 bucks.

Business buying decisions are all about return on investment. This is a business buying decision. Will this help you achieve your business goals? If you believe so, then buy it, use it, and make money with it. If not, pass it by.

Pipo,

I created the OTO. This is not PLR. It is the system I use to outsource many of my tasks. Very resourceful. And it works.

Hope that helps!

I live and breathe Kindle and epublishing. I am an affiliate for this course because it is top notch. Phil gives us the blueprint to build a real, profitable small publishing company. And you are the boss of that company.

This guide is thorough and systematic. Phil knows publishing and that is a fact.

Hey, thanks for your questions Yes, I address these items (and more) inside the training manual.

What I want to stress is that there is no A+B=C outcomes. What you pay for in royalties or as a lump sum (for outright ownership) is strongly influenced by the ability to negotiate - and this core skill needs to be practiced in order to yield the best results.

Your "adversaries" ability, or willingness to negotiate also plays an integral part as to what the final outcome is. You could pay as little as $100 or as much as $100,000 - there are so many factors at play... what you have to consider, as a business person, is: What I prepared to pay in order to maximize my ROI.

Yes, not all authors are going to agree to sell you the rights to their books. In these instances you need to be willing to walk away from a deal. However, you would be surprised at the number of people that have no interest putting their books on Amazon. Some just don't want the 'job' of doing it themselves, whilst others are not even aware that the opportunity exists.

I was the fortunate recipient of a review copy of Out of Print Goldmine from Philip; in this course he outlines an easy to follow, no-nonsense blueprint for setting up your own publishing business.

The course covers every possible detail one could ever think of, and to top it all off it gives you actionable, proactive tips to counter any kind of obstacles you may encounter in getting things going and being successful.

Once you get started following this guide, you'll realize that Philip has done all the research and the heavy lifting for you. All that's left to do is follow the clear directions he's provided you with.

Philip, thanks for allowing me to review it. As an author/publisher, I've had my eyes open to an entire new world of possibilities.

Thanks and have a fantastic day,
Tudor

This guide is outstanding - one of the most original kindle related WSO's I have seen. If you've already been publishing kindle books this will be a real eye opener for you. If you've never published a Kindle book before this will BLOW YOUR MIND. I give it 5 stars:-)

Finally! A kindle WSO in PDF format!! I bought Out of Print Goldmine, and am *extremely* glad that I did. I buy most WSO's on Kindle just to keep up to date with any new ideas (although they are few and far between). In my opinion, almost 90% of the kindle WSOs these days are rubbish - just guys jumping on the kindle bandwagon and rehashing the same old garbage. This is Philip John's 3rd Kindle WSO (I think, if my count is correct) and each one has been spectacular (this one is no different). Get it before he starts charging $70 dollars or more...

Hands down the best kindle WSO purchase I have made. Philip has really gone above and beyond to see that everyone has everything they need to get their publishing business up and running. He has laid it all out. I mean step by step and he gives the reasons why you should do things that way. You can tell he is really doing this himself and not just guessing at what might work. In one sentence: Short, Sweet and Awesome!

Hi everyone,

I have a few questions,

1.) are there any success stories with this? Any fellow warriors that have purchased this products and used the methods and made some money with it?

2.) How much is the OTO?

Thanks,
Nate

This WSO is aptly named for it truly is a goldmine for publishing out-of-print information.

As a published author with 30+ years working in the publishing industry, I pretty much thought I knew it all -- ! I was pleasantly surprised while going through the PDF to discover suggestions for actions that I had never considered. I read it twice and even picked up a couple additional ideas the second time around! It is chocked full of up-to-date information and great tips! The bonus letter templates allow you to get started today!

I thought so highly of this product that even though I received a review copy (thanks, Philip), I still purchased this WSO when it was released! [ticket AP-9HV94155NH459404C]. If you haven’t purchased Philip’s other WSO “Get Book Reviews Today,” then check it out because it also is a great product that I have found very helpful!

New to This.

Question:
When buying the rights to a out-of-print book, can anyone else buy the rights after you have already bought from the rightsholder(CopyRight Holder)?

How much on average would you have to spend on the rights to the book for republishing? Just An Approximate Amount, Please?

And, How much on average would you have to spend purchasing the book outright from the current copyright holder? Just An Approximate Amount, Please?

Just curious, cause I don't have enough money if the WSO is going to cost alot to get started; if buying rights to out-of-print books is going to break my Bank. There is no further of pursuing this WSO.

Thanks

Re: success stories. This is not a "get rich quick" scheme. All long-term successful businesses are built on strong foundations, and that takes time, so it is unreasonable to expect success stories within two days of it being launched. In fact, if someone claimed to be already making money with this method (two days after buying) then they would be lying. Plain and simple.

Re: the OTO. I think you should first consider the offer, before asking for the price. Seems a little backwards to me. Either the OTO offers something that you need in your business - or it doesn't.

I'm sorry if this post makes me seem a little grumpy at you -- I'm not -- I just want to avoid people having unrealistic expectations of what this is.

Re: having multiple rights-holders. I cover this in considerable detail inside Out of Print GM, but briefly, when you negotiate to buy the rights you need to specify if you are buying all rights, exclusive rights or non-exclusive rights.

If you are not interested in buying all rights, then you will need to list the exclusive rights you are buying, such as hardback, paperback, eBook version, audio version etc. If you only acquire the rights to the eBook version, then it is possible for someone else to acquire the paperback rights. It's not possible for two parties to both own the rights to the eBook version.

Re: Pricing. When negotiating price, start low and bow out when it becomes too expensive. Pricing is more art than science, so you will have to test pricing for what seems to work best for you. You never know what the other person is going to say.

Don't have the money to invest? That's okay. With the information in this course, you can create your own publishing business for very little upfront money by licensing the rights to the books. This requires a little elbow grease, but for those bootstrapping it, this is an extremely viable option.

In the words of Jim Rohn: 'If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.'

Whether you plan to use his methods to acquire or not, he is providing excellent information that I have not seen anywhere else (and I but a LOT of Kindle stuff). This WSO is truly unique - it does what so many WSO's claim to do but rarely do: deliver a REAL blueprint and action plan, step by step. Awesome stuff.

Yep, it's good.

(And I have published some stuff from PD already, which is selling, so I know a little about this matter.)
