Distribution is one of the four vital elements for a book’s success. Distribution simply means the reach and the accessibility of the titles to online and brick-&-mortar booksellers, retailers and wholesalers. One of the challenges of an emerging author is getting their books widely distributed and making the titles easily available and accessible to every type of booksellers, retailers, and readers. Our distribution is through Ingram Content Group, one of the largest book distributors in the world. They give us the widest reach, technology, and excellent title management.
Important keyword to remember is saturation publishing. It means making the title available and accessible to everyone. Limiting your book’s exposure to one medium makes it difficult for other retailers, wholesalers and readers to discover your book.
We love online booksellers like Amazon, B&N, Booktopia and many other online booksellers!
We find success in them—for one of the many reasons—they account for nearly 85% of our print sales! And they cater to book lovers which turns out as a good avenue for advertising and marketing for our authors.
Nothing can take away the charm of brick-and-mortar stores and the credibility it gives to authors and titles being displayed and shelved, however, the big chains can be aggressive with orders. No harm and all fascinating part—as long as they don’t return a lot of books.
Here’s how it works. They buy a book, hold on to it for a period of time and they can decide to return and get their money back. This risk falls on the publisher. When you are self-publishing and managing your book, take this into consideration: check the book returnability policy with your distributor.
We admire indie bookstores, as they are open to new authors and always find ways how to cater to new titles. Although they are discerning and careful in their buying decisions, they are supportive of emerging authors. They buy a few, then present it to their patrons, if it sells, then they buy more. We consider this smart. On the author’s and publishers’ part, all that needs to be done is to approach them.
You are not alone when you publish through us. Always guided. And because this takes heads and hearts to manage titles, we always see to it that we limit the titles we assist to 48 a year. Hope to welcome you this year with us.
