|For the first time in the history of the Christian electronic publishing industry,
STEP gives book publishers a way to self-publish fully-functional electronic editions of
their Bible reference books in a format that is independent of any one Bible software
company. This gives several immediate advantages:
|If you want to self-publish, you'll need the STEP Publishers Toolkit. This toolkit is
everything you need to create STEP books from editing (WYSIWYG editing tools) to marketing
(the STEP Logo program). The Toolkit includes:
Cost of the STEP Publishers Toolkit is $4125 for the first year, and $995 per year thereafter.
Instead of self-publishing, you might want to simply license your books to one of the STEP software publishers. Each offers different benefits and services that might be of value to you. See the Email List for contact information at each company. The benefit of working with a STEP software company over a non-STEP company is that you have a larger audience for STEP products (and thus higher potential royalty income) than for any other non-STEP product.
Another alternative is to have your books tagged and STEP files created by another company that has the STEP Publishers Toolkit, then market them under the STEP Logo. As long as the other company's Toolkit license is up-to-date, you can license the STEP Logo for $995/year for use on these products.
|STEP Publishers Toolkit consists of all the items listed above. License is good for one year and is renewable for additional years.||$4125 first year,
|STEP Logo License for use when someone else tags and converts your books.||$995/year|
|Additional Software License entitles you to use the Word Macros and Conversion Program on an additional PC.||$100/seat|
