Distribution of print books

Once an author's book is published, we make the book available as an open access PDF.

We also feed details (bibliographic information, sample chapters etc.) about the printed book and enhanced ebook in to our international distribution system. The book then becomes available to customers on a truly international basis within days of publication (we do, of course, accept pre-publication orders). Your title information is distributed for inclusion in the electronic catalogues of thousands of points of sale (you can, of course, buy the printed book direct from us). Via our distribution system, we connect to wholesalers, retailers and booksellers. This includes the world's largest online and offline booksellers.

Such international partnerships ensure that it is easy and convenient for customers to find information about your book, and therefore purchase it. If information about your publication doesn't appear in the catalogues of the major wholesalers and retailers (online and offline), then your publication - in their eyes - does not 'exist'. It is therefore vital that potential customers, as they can under our system, always find information about your publication. A publication's 'discoverability', is therefore vital.

Our distribution channels are comprehensive and truly international.
