It will work like this: we will share pictures, excerpts, and some interesting history about the books we are waiting on, and then the minimum amount of $$ we would need beforehand to be able to concentrate on getting it published. Whether multiple patrons would like to go in on adopting a book, or one particular patron would like to take it up, they will receive:
- Their name in the frontispiece along with a request for prayers for the generous benefactor[s]
- Three copies of the finished work in paperback, which will give our book’s patron a copy to keep and some to gift.
- Patron[s] will be added to our daily rosary intentions and our monthly mass for the lovely friends of Mediatrix Press.
With our plate relatively clear, it takes roughly a week to produce a book from scanning to getting a proof (this is working full time, 8 hours a day on the book). Some books may take longer depending upon the cleanness of the copy and the formatting necessary (e.g. bad prints require more editing work or British quotation system needs to be reformatted to the American). -We have added new content to our FAQ tab about what kind of work reprinting a book entails, if you would like to see just how much time is involved in reprinting books-
Then, after investigating which book(s) you would like to become the generous sponsor of, Adopt-A-Book by clicking on the paypal button on each individual book’s page (for inquiries on how to adopt a book by check, email us at )
For partial adoption, just send the amount you can afford and we’ll hold it until the rest is ponied up, then we’ll proceed. We’ll keep you notified as to the progress of your adopted book.
May God reward you.
